Description

In this course we first look at what’s required to install Oracle under Windows and Linux. We then launch into an installation. We also cover the upgrade path. For instance, we learn what’s required to upgrade an Oracle 10g/11g database to 12c, and how we can verify successful upgrade.

Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight, Tim Warner here welcoming you to the module entitled Installing Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c. In the previous module I mentioned automatic storage management, which is Oracles file system and logical volume manager that makes it relatively easy to deploy high availability storage subsystem for your Oracle database. I hope that when I mentioned ASM I whet your appetite, because what we're doing in this module is understanding Oracle Grid Infrastructure 12c, which is where ASM comes from, why it's important, and then how to actually install it, okay so by the end of this module you'll have a high level understanding of real application clusters, Oracle Grid Infrastructure, automatic storage management, and you'll actually know how to deploy ASM, without any further ado let's get started.

Installing Oracle Database 12c on Microsoft Windows
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight, my name is Tim Warner and your watching the module entitled, Installing Oracle Database 12c on Microsoft Windows. Well it's the moment we've all been waiting for my friend, it's time to lay down the binary's of the Oracle database, if you've been following along with these Pluralsight courses you'll recall that the first series deals with Oracle database 12c fundamentals, in there we learned the difference between the instance and the database, and all of the architectural underpinnings of the product if you don't mind the fancy language, now we're into installation and configuration, in the previous module we covered pre installation tasks, basically your planning tasks as well as the installation of Oracle Grid Infrastructure, here we're going to start with installation in the Microsoft Windows context, in the following module we'll cover Linux. To begin with it's important for us to understand the versions of Windows and additions that are supported by Oracle, the issue of support is crucial when you think about how reliant your business probably is on Oracle database, so if you're in an unsupported configuration than that means even if you have a support arrangement with Oracle they could turn you down for help because you're out of scope. We'll also cover common pre-installation tasks when you installing database 12c under Windows, we'll then spend most of our time together actually in a demo performing an installation of Oracle database in a single instance non clustered context, however I have installed Oracle Grid Infrastructure, in particular ASM, so we'll see how Oracle instance instillation dove tails with ASM technology, and then we'll wrap up with how we can verify that Oracle has been installed successfully, and some basic house keeping things that you need to do as a Windows based Oracle DBA, let's get started.

Installing Oracle Database 12c on Linux
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight, Tim Warner here welcoming you to this module entitled installing Oracle Database 12c on Linux. Im a big fan of Linux to be honest with you, in fact I'm a big fan of all operating systems, Windows, Linux, OS10, even older OS's like BOS, anybody remember that one? In this module we're going to focus on the how to for laying down Oracle database 12c on a specific distribution of Linux, we're going to use Oracles own Linux here, for many reasons, number one it's the easiest Linux to install Oracle on in my humble opinion, and there's some reasons for that, number two it's based on red hat Linux which is one of the leading distributions in the world, and number three it's just a lot of fun, bottom line is we're going to start with preparing for installation pre installation tasks, actually the way I've structured this module is very similar to how I structured the previous one in which we installed Oracle database 12c on a Windows system. We'll spend most of our time performing the installation, as I warned you about in the previous module there's more required of us as DBAs when we're installing on Linux than under Window. And then cleaning up the system means making sure that we have our environment variable set up and that we have the Oracle instance configured to auto start every time the machine boots up, without any further ado let's get started.

Creating a Database in Oracle Database 12c
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight, my name is Time Warner and your watching the module entitled, Creating a Database in Oracle Database 12c. In this module we're actually going to create the database proper, we know that in Oracle there's a tricky relationship between the instance and the database, even more so in Oracle 12c we have this whole concept of the multi-tenant architecture. We'll start in this module with a little bit on the importance of planning your database creation, this brings in issues of hardware, the purpose of the database, and then choices along the way, I'm actually going to teach you most of those choices in the context of a demo, I think that�s probably the most appropriate way to go, to that end we'll use the database configuration assistant to create a container database, you know how to create a non CDB, we've done that in the course already, so I think it would be instructive to show you how easy it is to build out a container database with one or more pluggable databases inside it, along the way we have some certification objectives to cover like managing database templates and creation scripts, and configuring database options, there's a lot of good practical information in this module, so let's get right to it.

Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight, my name is Tim Warner and I'd like to welcome you to this module entitled Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c. It came as a bit of a shock to me to be honest when I first looked at Oracle database 12c, and discovered that there's no Oracle enterprise manager or OEM to speak of. Yes we have the database control, 12c as it�s called, and it's certainly faster and more responsive than Oracle enterprise manager, but if you followed our Pluralsight course on Oracle database 12c fundamentals you doubtless noticed that database express is pretty limited in its feature set, so the answer to the question, where has Oracle enterprise manager gone? Is answered in this module where I'll teach you all about the introductory information concerning enterprise manager cloud control 12c, by the end of this module you'll understand the purpose of enterprise manager cloud control, where Oracle sees this as fitting into your infrastructure, we'll review the necessary parts and pieces, basically the cloud control architecture, once we have that under our belts we'll actually perform an installation of cloud control, and I will give you pointers toward configuration next steps, to be perfectly candid with you, cloud control is an entire course unto itself so I can do little more than scratch the surface here, and point of fact there are several books from Oracle press specifically that are entirely devoted to using cloud control 12c, it's quite a beast of a product, nevertheless I'm comfortable and confident by the end of this module you will have your sea legs as it were with the technology, and you'll be far less confused than you might be right now, to that end let's get started.
