They have finally arrived, the Windows 64 and 32 bit versions of Oracle 11gR2.
Download Oracle Database 11g Release 2 for Windows
The 64 bit version was released a bit earlier, so I was hoping the 32 bit version would not come… Why do we want the 32 bit versions? Older systems? Ancient systems! Why…?!
Now I don’t have an excuse to update my almost 10 years old Windows XP OS (running on 64bit hardware) to a much nicer Windows 7 64 bit. The only excuse now is that I could use 600+ megs of memory… enough to run that XP OS virtually!
In Oracle 11g, the one who is calling a remote site needs to get access to that site. This is done via the Access Control List.
I have written a blog about this error at my Whitehorses Blog: Oracle 11g: Access Control List and ORA-24247.
Today I had to babysit a demo machine I set-up for a proof of concept. All went well, as I expected.
A two gigabyte RAM Linux machine with SOA/BPEL 11g, two WebLogic 10.3 domains extended with ADF and Apex XE running on it. It kept running, but at one point is had only 30 megs of memory left!
Check out ‘Extending your WebLogic standalone environment with ADF runtime libraries‘ for more information about setting up the WebLogic environment with ADF.
When moving/deleting the listener.log, I used to stop and start the listener and move/delete the listener in between the actions.
This method has a big inconvenience: users can not connect to the database for a few seconds…
What I never knew was that the listener could be told to stop and start logging and take the appropriate action in between. Continue reading
When having multiple Oracle homes on Windows, how is decided which Oracle home (in the registry) is used by an Oracle binary? Which NLS_LANG or TNS_ADMIN setting from the registry is used?
The answer is binary, path, oracle.key, registry… and which for Windows. Continue reading

I have just explained a few test scenarios when trying to recover through RESETLOGS. You need to make sure you know your incarnations!

After a nice Lower Cost talk by Mark Townsend and the new Sun Oracle Exadata and Database Machine by Chris Baker, I attended ‘Upgrade to 11g – Best Practices’ by Mike Dietrich, ‘Consolidate on Low-Cost Server and Storage Grids’ by John Abrahams, ‘Oracle’s Maximum Availability Architecture’ also by John Abrahams & Lucas Jellema, CTO AMIS and ‘DBA 2.0’ by Ed Bangma.
It was nice to see our Whitehorses logo in the main presentation at the Oracle Netherlands 25 years sheet!

Last week I created a new database (Oracle 9.2) and got the following message when the ‘create database’ script was almost finished: ORA-01991: invalid password file.
OK, the database instance existed before, so I created a new password file with orapwd. Trying to open the database after this gave me the following message: ORA-01403: no data found. Continue reading
