Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c on OL 5.7

I have been closely involved in the upgrade discussion of my current customer’s Enterprise Managers setup from an engineering point of view. The client uses OEM extensively for monitoring, alerts generated by it are automatically forwarded to an IBM product called Netcool.

Now some of the management servers are still on 10.2.0.5 in certain regions, and for a private cloud project I was involved in an 11.1 system was needed.The big question was: wait for 12.1 or upgrade to 11.1?

Migration to Exadata Session at #OOW11

Considering it was the last session of #OOW11 I was surprised to see a sizable number of folks showing up for my 3rd and final session slated for 3 to 4 PM on Thursday. Thank you for attending and for your questions.

Here is the slide deck. Note: please do not click on the link. Instead, right click on it, save the file and open it. It's a Powerpoint show; not a PPT. You can download free Powerpoint player to watch it, if you don't have Powerpoint installed.

Mike Carey: Vicious Circle…

The second in the Felix Castor series by Mike Carey. In Vicious Circle, Felix has to save the ghost of a girl from getting killed (sort of). File under supernatural detective with similarities to The Dresden Files. Pretty cool if you are into this sort of thing, like I am, but not for everyone.

My favorite character has to be Juliette, the succubus. To paraphrase one of her comments regarding attempting to use her abilities on some people suffering from demonic possession, “They should have only been capable of spontaneous orgasm.” It seems demonic possession gets in the way of your average succubus innocently going about their business… :)

Second favorite character has got to be Nikki, a zombie conspiracy theorist. It’s good to know that Zombies care about their appearance too. Nikki tries to prevent his corpse decaying by using industrial air conditioning and avoiding bacterial contamination as much as possible. Nikki is rather surprised by his physical reaction to Juliette, which should be impossible for a zombie as their congealed blood does not flow. I’ll leave it up to you to guess what happened to him. :)

Cheers

Tim…
