Installing Oracle 11g 64 bit on Windows Server 2008
When installing Oracle 184.108.40.206 on Windows Server 2008 64 bit, the installer gave a an error saying the Operating System ( OS ) was not supporting. In looking at the install log on c:\program files\oracle, I noticed the installer thinks the OS is windows vista.
To work around this error, I selected the check box for user verified and continued with the install.
Use the SQL Tuning Advisor for tuning SQL statements. Typically, you can run this advisor in response to an ADDM performance finding that recommends its use.
Additionally, you can run the SQL Tuning Advisor on the most resource-intensive SQL statements, referred to as top SQL, from the cursor cache or the AWR, as well as on a user-defined SQL workload.
To run the SQL Tuning Advisor do the following:
Here I present a simple query to use when we want to move the tables and indexes of several users at once.
To make it one by one:
ALTER TABLE xxxxxx MOVE TABLESPACE TEST; ALTER INDEX xxxxxx REBUILD TABLESPACE TEST;
To move data from multiple owners.
It is an English word that sounds very funny in Spanish, almost unreal.
Well, just wanted to brand the blog with a first entry to introduce myself.
I work as an Oracle and SQL Server DBA (mixed profile, they call it -
concerns twice for the same pay, on me).
Here I will write "how to" articles as they emerge in my day to day.
If you can read Spanish, check out the blog I maintain for a little more time http://blog.davidlozanolucas.com/.
Here is a script to start/stop Oracle databases running in Unix:
During a quite evening of my last on-call bout I was alerted from our monitors that the UNDO tablespace was running out of free space. Thought of adding of a new data file and be done with it; When I checked the current allocation for this tablespace it was already at 40G - couldn't believe what I was seeing. The undo_retention was set to 7200 and max query length in v$undostat was not that high. One column that did caught my eye was the tuned_undoretention, its value was way very high.
Checks to be performed at the machine level (note the example is Red Hat Linux)
run queue should be ideally not more than the number of CPU’s on the machine
At the maximum it should never be more than twice the number of CPU’s.
This is denoted by the column ‘r’ in the vmstat output shown below

When importing table that contained custom type, you will encounter an oracle error as shown below:
Import of table containing object type(s) fails with IMP-00061 IMP-00063
When you import a table that references a type, but a type of that name
already exists in the database. Import attempts to verify that the pre-existing
type is in fact the type used by the table(rather than a different type that
just happens to have the same name).
RMAN is recommended for backups/restore of oracle databases.It is a very powerful tool and has variety of useful features.There is 'checksyntax' feature in RMAN which allows one to check RMAN scripts syntactically without executing it.This feature is available from 10G release 2.It proves to be useful for checking scriptsfor live databases where one doesnt have leisure to execute scripts any time and any times!!
bash-3.00$ vi rman_bkp.rman
ALLOCATE CHANNEL c1 TYPE DISK FORMAT '/data/backup/Hotbkp_Full_%D_%d_%s_%p'; BACKUP database; RELEASE CHANNEL c1;
allocate channel c2 type dis
I've been working on way to capture changed rows using ora_rowscn for part of an ETL routine. Here are some details of what I've tested and found.
By default, the ora_rowscn pseudo column reports the scn at block level. This means that rows sharing the same block will have the same ora_rowscn, and if one row were to be changed, then scn would be altered for both blocks.
Once the standby database is setup using Data Guard and works properly, you may want to test switchover, or perform switchover to reduce primary database downtime during OS upgrades or hardware upgrades. (To set up a Physical Standby database, please refer to my OraFAQ blog “Oracle 10g – Manually Create a Physical Standby Database Using Data Guard”.)
A switchover allows the primary database to switch roles with its standby database. There is no data loss during a switchover.
