During the EM configuration to monitor GoldenGate, I stepped through the documentation (as I have numerous times in the past) but this time I kept getting the error message in the jagent.log. 2014-02-12 00:58:54 [main] INFO JAgentWSMain – About to call initialize on the WebService2014-02-12 00:58:54 [main] INFO JAgentWSMain – Loading agent-spring-ws.xml ############### 2014-02-12 […]

This will be a quick and dirty post. I’m in a plane right now and needed to download the latest release of GoldenGate 12c onto my office server. Not wanting to transfer any files from my laptop over, nor going through a VNC setup I thought I’d try the wget approach. This is documented here […]

While digging around Grid Infrastructure logs, I came across this new feature with 12c called Cluster Health Monitor (CHM) – I knew the MGMTDB database was good for something when I opted to install it even though it is not required. From Oracle’s Documentation “The Cluster Health Monitor (CHM) detects and analyzes operating system and […]

Introduction As with any adventure, there are hurdles along the way. I started my previous post with the sections below but instead I ended up composing the linked article. What I had started with was how to query the Active Directory tree where groups with multiple subgroups from a Weblogic Server for Enterprise Manager User […]

Update Feb 14, 2014: I posted a detailed followup note on EM12c, Weblogic, and Finding Your Way in Active Directory. In it, I’ve illustrated how to find your way in active directory when attempting to setup authentication.   On my current project involving EM12c, I had to configure the Weblogic Server with LDAP Authentication against Active […]

While writing a separate article on EM12c’s Security Authentication, I felt the need to separate out the various parts and pieces which make up the discussion. Rather than have one quite long post, a few smaller ones would make for an easier read. In this one, I’d like to show you how to enable auto-provisioning […]

One of my colleagues asked me a good question this morning about how to go about changing the properties of a target, specifically the “Contact” field.  The properties fields for a target are often over-looked, but are important to the prioritization algorithm for event management. For example, if a target’s Lifecycle Status is Production or […]

Afternoon folks! I received a text from a customer of mine asking whether I had any documentation to create jobs in EM12c. To be specific, the job in question could have been setup via crontab or windows jobs but since I had recommended consolidation of newer jobs in EM12c, this was a good question. The […]

Over the last few months, I’ve written a few posts on Provisioning Databases in EM12c. After writing them out, I’ve realized that they’re note organized in the best manner. With that in mind, I’ve created a list (see below) which I hope to keep updated, and you will find as a helpful resource. 1. Patch […]

While tinkering with GoldenGate on an Oracle Database for a recent project, I actually managed to break it by my own mistakes. In my successful attempt to setup DDL replication between Source and Target, I tried to created a table on the source with the expectation that it would be ready on the target […]


Things I see and learn!

Thoughts from James H. Lui

If you Care a Little More, Things Happen. Bees can be dangerous. Always wear protective clothing when approaching or dealing with bees. Do not approach or handle bees without proper instruction and training.
