GoldenGate Veridata 11.2.1 Server Installation

Today, I’d like to share my experience with a tool that I’ve used infrequently with GoldenGate.

Veridata is Oracle’s answer to Data Validation for environments where a replication technology is utilized. In other words, the tool is agnostic (but partial) to a set Database vendors. You can install it on a variety of platforms, and a few database types.

Components:

Installation

1. Download and unzip the media from eDelivery.

Cheers!
