Hi Diana! I’m happy to have found this site (originally via LinkedIn post) and pleased to see your career developing in this way. I’d love to catch up with you over coffee one day.
But I rarely get downtown anymore. I overwinter in Arizona (just got back) so I don’t even make it out to many COUG meetings. I currently have only one client active – not that I’m complaining! Over the years after retiring from Shell, I’ve had lots of work. As I get older, I find I have better things to do with my time (5 grandchildren to visit, geocaching, breakfast at A&W 🙂 ).
I’ll sign up to get your blogs. Wherever do you find the time?
Hi Wayne! Glad to hear from you as well! Thank you for subscribing and for your support! I hope you find the articles useful, or at least entertaining! I am glad you spend time in Arizona, it’s a beautiful place, and also with the family. When you are in Calgary, let me know, and we can grab a coffee or lunch!
Hi Diana! I’m happy to have found this site (originally via LinkedIn post),
I accidently buped on this website from Linkedin. Really happy that I did come here. Just one thing I would like to suggest, Could you please update or write few more blogs on RAC and 12c.
Thanks Ijaz! I am glad you enjoy the content! More 12c and RAC will be coming in the future! Stay tuned!
really great efforts
HI Diana…just read your post on proxy users. Very helpful. I think you are the first woman blogger I’ve seen for Oracle DBAs…great job.! Kari from Cleveland
Thank you Kari for your kind words!
Do you have guide or tips to duplicate from active database using RMAN? Sample scenario, duplicating (two nodes) RAC database(PROD environment) into a single node database(Test environment).. Thank you very much.
I have not created a guide yet! Great idea for future posts!
Keep up the good work!!
I love this website you made and you teach me very important concepts as a DBA to open my mind much more for the possibilities that can happen even while doing simple tasks.
I’m still a junior DBA, but i hope that one day i will be a senior consultant and i will be very good oracle based DBA in the future (:
Thanks alot. I’m very grateful for the information you put out there.
Nice Article !
