HOST Options for local_listener

Filed under: oracle — mdinh @ 1:43 pm

For a long time, I was using *.local_listener='(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=)(PORT=1551))’ without specifying the host name since it makes the configuration more dynamic.

Then one day, I ran into issues which I don’t remember and started to use host name for local_listener.

Today, I ran into issues after cloning VM and host name changed causing database not to start and I am now back to using local_listener without host name.

ORACLE_MAINTAINED Set From “_ORACLE_SCRIPT” parameter

Filed under: 12c,migration,oracle — mdinh @ 2:26 pm

A huge thank you to Pete Finnigan for his blog post.

Hacking Oracle 12c COMMON Users

Not only is the implementation of ORACLE_MAINTAINED not ideal, it’s a possible security risk.

My tip to you is to always exit the session before performing any object creation.

From my pain as you can see, looks like “_ORACLE_SCRIPT was not reset when new users where created.

Also ORACLE_MAINTAINED Objects Don’t Export

Learned quite a few new thing this weekend and can now lay to rest.

test:(SYS@test):PRIMARY> alter session set "_ORACLE_SCRIPT"=false;

Session altered.

test:(SYS@test):PRIMARY> create user newdemo identified by demo;

User created.

ORACLE_MAINTAINED Objects Don’t Export

Filed under: 12c,migration,oracle — mdinh @ 5:03 am

What a disaster this is with 12c full database export and ORACLE_MAINTAINED objects.

Somehow, oracle thinks MDINH is an ORACLE_MAINTAINED user and user MDINH does not get exported.

———

Why Can an Object Not Be Exported? Expdp of SYSTEM User’s Table Returns ORA-39166 or ORA-31655 (Doc ID 2114233.1)

There are certain system generated schemas that are not exportable using exp or expdp because they contain Oracle-managed data and metadata. SYS, MDSYS, and ORDSYS are some examples.

———

From Blog about  (ORACLE_MAINTAINED Column) DEMO was ORACLE_MAINTAINED user as well.

For testing purposes, I dropped and recreated the user to test export which removed ORACLE_MAINTAINED flag.

Still, this does not explained how MDINH came to be ORACLE_MAINTAINED user.

Has anyone experience this and has a solution or work around?

To CDB or NOT To CDB (ORACLE_MAINTAINED Column)

Filed under: 12c,migration,oracle — mdinh @ 2:26 pm

I recently discovered about column ORACLE_MAINTAINED added to DBA views and got excited over nothing.

ORACLE_MAINTAINED from DBA_ROLES
Denotes whether the role was created, and is maintained, by Oracle-supplied scripts (such as catalog.sql or catproc.sql).
A role for which this column has the value Y must not be changed in any way except by running an Oracle-supplied script.

STOP HERE:

Please read post ORACLE_MAINTAINED Set From “_ORACLE_SCRIPT” parameter to the real reasons (I must have messed up somewhere).

Updated: the statements below are not correct.

It looks like ORACLE_MAINTAINED is only valid for CDB and seems as if Oracle is really wanting all databases to go to CDB.

For Non-CDB, ORACLE_MAINTAINED value is ‘Y’ even when not.

Columns Affected by Extended Data Type

Filed under: 12c,migration,oracle — mdinh @ 1:02 pm

I am not going to post how to convert to extended data type since there are many blogs on that already.

Just a reminder, there’s no going back; hence have backup and possibly minimize changes during testing to be able to restore (which is ideal and may not be feasible).

Before reverting to MAX_STRING_SIZE=STANDARD, columns affected by extended data type need to be identified.

From Oracle documentation, MAX_STRING_SIZE controls the maximum size of VARCHAR2, NVARCHAR2, and RAW data types in SQL.

STANDARD means that the length limits for Oracle Database releases prior to Oracle Database 12c apply
(for example, 4000 bytes for VARCHAR2 and NVARCHAR2, and 2000 bytes for RAW).

EXTENDED means that the 32767 byte limit introduced in Oracle Database 12c applies.

Test case:

[05:41]oracle@arrow:test:/media/sf_working/sql
$ sysdba @max_string_size.sql

Now it’s evident as to why there is no going back since SYS objects seem to be modified too.

That’s the easy part. Next is to create the database with identical components installed and hopefully full export/import will work.

Some useful information if you are thinking about migrating to extended data type.

rlwrap – there’s a rpm for that

Filed under: linux — mdinh @ 4:09 am

Recently, there has been discussion about using rlwrap for Goldengate on Twitter feed.

Truthfully, I did not know there was RPM for this and I did not even know it was already installed.

It just worked, when I had set it up.

A very nice cheat sheet for using yum.

Yum Command Cheat Sheet for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

I started to investigate how was rlwrap installed on the system.

OS Version.

$ cat /etc/issue
Oracle Linux Server release 6.6
Kernel \r on an \m

$ cat /etc/oracle-release
Oracle Linux Server release 6.6

Where’s rlwrap?

$ which rlwrap
/usr/bin/rlwrap

What’s rlwrap RPM?

$ yum provides rlwrap
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
rlwrap-0.42-1.el6.x86_64 : Wrapper for GNU readline
Repo        : epel
Matched from:

rlwrap-0.42-1.el6.x86_64 : Wrapper for GNU readline
Repo        : installed
Matched from:
Other       : Provides-match: rlwrap

What’s rlwrap dependencies?

$ yum deplist rlwrap
Loaded plugins: refresh-packagekit, security
Finding dependencies:
package: rlwrap.x86_64 0.42-1.el6
...
Output omitted from brevity

Configure alias using rlwrap.

$ alias sqlplus

Configuring Multiple local_listener

Filed under: 11g,oracle — mdinh @ 5:16 am

I was working on configuring multiple local listeners and having difficulties setting local_listener using full address list.

How would you set up local_listeners?

Demo:

There are 4 listeners, 1-4.
