Monday April 19 from 12:00 – 12:30 pm.

How to use OCM to your advantage, don’t just blindly install it without knowing what information is being collected. There are several different methods of implementation with some being more security conscious than the basic installation. Some of the more sensitive information is not needed by Oracle support personnel to diagnose issues. Take a quick peek at OMS 11g and its integration with My Oracle Support.

Migrating to 11g – Step-Ordered Approach

This presentation was voted one of the Best of the Database Track from COLLABORATE 09

Migrating to a newer Oracle Database Version doesn’t have to be confined to a single outage period.   Several interim steps can be done ahead to certain compatible components saving valuable time.  In a general sense Oracle is backwards compatible for making that transition from an earlier version to a later one.  The following components can be upgraded to 11g Release 1 (11.1.0.7 current patchset at the time of this writing) while still  compatible with earlier versions of Oracle, see the Reference Section for additional information on exact versions.

Grid Control 10gR2 – Diagnosis, Treatment and Triage

As more customers are moving to 10gR2, Grid Control has taken on the role as an enterprise-wide monitoring tool due to the wide adoption of the Diagnostic and Tuning Packs.   Learn what the other Packs have to offer  along with recommended deployment methods that vary according to the number and type of targets being supported.  Best practices will be discussed for installation, backups/restores, troubleshooting, migrations and upgrades within the Maximum Availability Architecture Framework for High Availability.  A case study will be shown by using the various management packs to actually tune the components of Grid Control.


Virginia Oracle Users Group (VOUG) Conference

October 9 & 10, 2008, at the

Omni Richmond Hotel in Richmond, Virginia.

Found the people in Richmond to be warm and friendly.  Laid back atmosphere in this city, with lots of hospitality thrown in.  Toured the Civil War Park, wandered around the Folk Festival, walked over the pedestrian bridge to Belle Isle, wandered down the Canal Walk and even took the canal boat ride complete with a history lesson about the Civil War.  Thanks!

DATA GUARD and FLASHBACK – Stress Testing,

HotFixes and Data Recovery

In 10gR2 the combination of FLASHBACK and DATA GUARD makes recovery scenarios and hot fix patching on a physical standby possible by making it read/write temporarily. This can reduce or eliminate downtime for the primary database for certain types of recovery situations and may reduce or eliminate the need for duplication of hardware for testing purposes.

Migrating to a newer Oracle Database Version doesn’t have to be confined to a single outage period. Several interim steps can be done ahead to certain compatible components saving valuable time. In a general sense Oracle is backwards compatible for making that transition from an earlier version to a later one. Certain components, clients and services can be upgraded to 11g Release 1 (11.1.0.6) while still compatible with earlier versions of Oracle.
