    Oracle DBA FAQs

    • Backup and recovery: Is a Data Pump export a backup?

      No. An export cannot be used to restore and recover a damaged or missing data file.

    • Backup and recovery: Can you backup on one platform and restore to another?
      Yes, but there are some limitations and it can be awkward.
    • Backup and recovery: Can you backup in one release and restore to a higher release?
      Yes, but have to run the upgrade routine against the restored database.
    • DB tuning: What is a wait event?
      Something that causes a session or the instance to hang. They happen - not necessarily a problem.
    • DB tuning: Are AWR reports available in Standard Edition?
      No, the AWR requires EE plus the Diagnostics Pack. Use Statspack if these are not available.
    • DB tuning: Is Automatic Memory Management a feature one should use?
      It makes DB Admin easier, but does have limitations. Probably best to use it only on lower end systems.
    • Multitenant: How is Multitenant licensed?
      Free, and very useful, in all editions for up to three PDBs. More than three? You need EE plus the option.
    • Multitenant: Can you unplug from, eg, a release 12.x DB and plug in to a 19.x DB?
      Sure, then run the upgrade routine against it. Probabaly the easiest and quickest way to upgrade.
    • Security: Can an old 10g client connect to an 19c database?
      Yes, if you configure the database to generate and accept 10g password verifiers.
    • Security: Why don't roles work in PL/SQL definer's rights procedures?
      Because roles are dynamically enabled and disabled, but PL/SQL is statically compiled.

    DBA Training Reviews

     5/5

    I'm a big fan of Watson. His book got me through my OCA and every class with him is highly informative and I enjoy learning from him how to use the command line tools vs the GUIs, which is all they teach in the Oracle University classes.

    If I had to be picky, maybe larger test data to see how dramatic the differences in performance can be. When comparing a plan with a cost of 7 vs 3 you get the idea but it might really drive it home to see 1,000,000 vs 1,000.

    None, I loved the environment and wouldn't change a thing. I've taken previous skillbuilders classes and I'll be back in the future!
     5/5

    good course material, good teacher!

    I think all was great! A lot of material was covered, so definitely some work after class is needed!

    Doing homework together in the morning reinforces the knowledge passed on us during prev day class. And this is what Joh did with us. Going again via those excersizes really help to understand things better.
     5/5

    I really enjoyed this class. John really knows what he is doing and he can talk through it from many angles. I have had official Oracle training and this is way better. Way more presenter interaction.

    I really can't think of anything to improve on. Really a great class, well done Skillbuilders.

    Nope none.
     5/5

    I loved the depth of content. John's knowledge and expertise in the field is immense and thorough. He has endless energy and enthusiasm for Oracle technology, which definitely helps keep your attention in an 8 hour class.

    As the lead Oracle Application Express (APEX) resource, Dan leveraged his knowledge of APEX, Oracle, and related web based technologies to help design and build a custom user interface on BAE’s existing Oracle EBS back end. Dan was an integral part of a team effort that took the project from behind to ahead of schedule while total staff was decreased. The project was completed on time and above expectations – a finished product which included additional deliverables.

    SkillBuilders was brought in to salvage and complete the project.
