Welcome to the dbi services Blog! This IT blog focuses on database, middleware, and OS technologies such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server & SharePoint, EMC Documentum, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase, Unix/Linux, etc. The dbi services blog represents the view of our consultants, not necessarily that of dbi services. Feel free to comment on our blog postings.
The new Oracle OEM Cloud Control 18.104.22.168 release migration makes it necessary for the DBA to migrate the old agent version to 22.214.171.124. If your infrastructure has a huge number of agents and if you want to apply the agent patches to the upgraded agents, this might be a very time-consuming job. However, there is a way to realize the operation in just one shot.
This week, I attended the SQLSaturday 2014 in Paris. During the Pre-Conference on Thursday, I followed Isabelle Van Campenhoudt for her SQL Server Performances Audit session. This conference took the form of an experience sharing between attendees. Indeed, we tried to list together the most important software, tools, features or scripts which will help an SQL Server DBA during his work. In this blog, I want to share our final list with you.
Last week, I attended the SQLSaturday 2014 in Paris and participated in a session on SQL Server optimization for Sharepoint by Serge Luca. This session tried to list the best pratices and recommendations for Database Administrators in order to increase the SharePoint performance. This blog post is based on this session and is meant as a sequel to my previous post on Improving your SharePoint performance using SQL Server settings (part 1).
This document describes the main new features of Cloud Control 126.96.36.199. A lot of new features are coming with the 188.8.131.52 version I will describe the most important ones, but you can also refer to this Oracle documen: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24628_01/doc.121/e25353/whats_new.htm#CEGFFGBI
You are using an Oracle Enterprise Edition and thinking about downgrading to the Standard Edition? In this case, you must be sure that your applications are compatible. It's not something easy to check. Here are a few ideas.
This SQL Saturday’s edition in Paris is now over. It was a great event with a lot of French and international speakers. There were also many attendees indicating that this event is a great place to share about SQL Server technologies. Maybe the Montparnasse tower in Paris played a role here with its panoramic view over Paris from the 40th floor!
This is another blog posting an our Documentum upgrade project. This time, the following issue occured: the ActiveX could not be installed using the D2-Client. We had to access the D2-Config url to have it installed. For a normal user, this could not be used.
In my previous blog, I described the process to install a Kerberos Client and how to Kerberized Alfresco. In this blog, I will continue in the same way and present another application that could be configured to use the Kerberos MIT KDC: Liferay. Liferay is a very popular and a leader in Open Source solution for enterprise web platform (Intranet/Extranet/Internet web sites). Liferay could be bundled with several application servers like Tomcat, JBoss, Glassfish, but it could also be installed from scratch (deployment of a war file) with a lot of existing application servers.
Installing and managing a highly available MySQL infrastructure can be really tedious. Solutions to facilitate database and system administrator’s task exist, but few of these cover the complete database lifecycle and address all the database infrastructure management requirements. Severalnines’ product ClusterControl is probably the only solution that covers the full infrastructure lifecycle and is also able to provide a full set of functionalities required by database cluster architectures. In this article, I will show how to install, monitor and administrate a database cluster with ClusterControl.
