Oracle Database Appliance With WebLogic Server (ODA X3-2) by Jacco H. Landlust

On April 3rd the new ODA X3-2 was released. Sadly I was sick from April 1st  on so I had to miss the launch, and I was so well prepared… others had the scoop. Anyway, as an administrator that not only manages databases this release is pretty exciting since it brings not only virtualization but also WebLogic to ODA. This would make ODA a pretty good appliance for some of my customers, so I did a little investigation in the product.

This blogpost is the first result of that investigation. My main focus was the WebLogic part of the box. The questions that arose with me were either answered by documentation or by product management. Obviously that doesn’t guarantee that I understood everything correct :)I left out references to documentation on  purpose, it would be smart for everyone interested in the product to hit the documentation thoroughly.

The most import slide in the slide deck I received about the ODA launch is this.

It does some pretty smart claims that can be verified easily. The three simplified statements call for some clarification. Here’s what my questions were, plus the answers I found:

Simplified provisioning / install

Q: Can we test any of this without ODA?
A: No, although I was able to get a virtual ODA in a virtual box environment. This is by no means supported and requires altering of the images that Oracle sends you. Read the full article here.

Active Data Guard & Fusion Middleware Repositories by Jacco H. Landlust

Last year while working on a POC Rob den Braber noticed the following in Disaster Recovery for Oracle Elastic Cloud with Oracle ExaData Database Machine on page 13.

Currently, Oracle Fusion Middleware does not support configuring Oracle Active Data Guard for the database repositories that are a part of the Fusion Middleware topology. However, Active Data Guard can be configured if your custom applications are designed to leverage the technology.

Today this came up in a discussion with Simon Haslam , and he didn’t hear from this support issue before. So it seems that it is not that well know that Active Data Guard and Oracle Fusion Middleware is not a supported combination.

This makes this blog post a reminder from what is already in documentation (unless someone can comment and tell me that currently in the quote is not so currently anymore).
Hope this helps.
