Abstract
Do you love database patching? No?
Database patching is a reoccurring task. Every quarter in January, April, July and October it is time to apply at least the quarterly bundle patches.

But even finding the right patches can be a challenge sometimes. And WHY is YOUR patch not available? Do you need a new opatch? And what if you unplug from 19.6.0 to 19.9.0 – do you have to copy

Upgrade Essentials – Videos for the Virtual Classroom Series 2020

Roy, Daniel and I ran 6 workshops in our Virtual Classroom Series 2000 format. Each of them is between 90 and 120 minutes. This sounds quite long but of course you can scroll forward if you are interested in only a part of it. We consider those the Upgrade Essentials – Videos for the Virtual Classroom Series 2020. As as we now completed the 6th web seminar, it’s time for a short recap.

Is Upgrade that complicated?

Good question. If upgrade is so easy as we say, why do you need 6 virtual sessions …

Patching all my environments with the October 2020 Patch Bundles

I have to confess: Time didn’t allow to rearrange my lab yet to have GI and ASM. Hence, this will be another blog post about Patching all my environments with the October 2020 Patch Bundles with only non-RAC patching. But it is in the works …

As usual, an important annotation upfront: I patch in-place due to space issues. But in reality, you please patch always out-of-place with a separate home. Please see this blog post about how to apply the RU directly when you provision a new home with OUI.

LAOUC Web Seminar: Oracle Multitenant – 3 PDBs and many secrets

Just a few hours left until I’ll start my LAOUC Web Seminar: Oracle Multitenant – 3 PDBs and many secrets today, Aug 17, 2020. I’m really looking forward to it even though it is a bit sad this time. Usually in the past years I was traveling to Latin America. And I enjoyed the intense discussions in Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil a lot. The local folks invest so much time in these yearly user group conferences. Hence, as for most other events as well, this year you’ll be able to participate virtually over multiple days.

And for me, it will be the first time in a week to attend and speak at OOW London. Let me give you a very quick overview on our OOW London 2020 – Upgrade Talk and more.
