I’m moving to Paris

Hi fellow Thetendjee readers.

Today, no 10g stuff but a personal news.

I’m leaving Bangkok, Thailand to go to Paris, France.
I will be landing there on 23rd of December.

The position is Senior DBA at Mondial Assistance Group.
I will be working with much more databases on different versions (9i and 10g) and with different systems.
It will be primarily SUN.
I’m really happy and excited about this new position.
I will have the chance to move around Europe as well because I’m in charge of Oracle databases for our Business Units in Europe.
More databases, more systems, more responsabilities and more experience –> Ultimately more to write on this blog!

I will have the opportunity to polish my *nix scripting skills.

I have had a great time in Thailand and I want to stress to anybody reading this that working in Thailand is an awesome experience.
If you ever got a chance to go work there, don’t think twice.

The world was shouting out loud for some explanations on ORA-12514

I was having a look at my blog stats today and it seems that most of the traffic I got from search engines are triggered by ORA-12514…

Just a simple look at the following table, coming straight from the stats:

ORA-12514 23
ora-12514 13
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not current 5
dbsnmp password 3
TNS:listener does not currently know of 3
DG_BROKER_START=true scope=both; 2

That’s 78% of the search on this blog.

So what I’m going to do, instead of just a solution to ORA-12514, is a detailed explanation of how connectivity works with Oracle: Listener, sqlnet.ora and tnsnames.ora

I’ll also include some basic best practices as well. All that with as few difficult words as possible and as many simple words as possible.

I don’t pretend to be an Oracle guru but I would be really happy to provide my small piece of work to the greatest community online.

Soon. On this blog…
