Malware sites offering Oracle 'patches'


It has come to our attention that there are non-Oracle sites offering Oracle 'fixes' for genuine Oracle error messages.

You probably already don't need to be told, however:

please do not download these fixes as

  • they are not authorized by us in any way and
  • are more than likely to be dangerous to your system

If you do encounter one of these sites please inform us immediately via  Communities or create a SR and we will rectify the situation.

If you are unsure if a patch can be trusted, contact us as well via  Communities or create a SR.

Proactive Support are already investigating some known sites.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to make people aware that

any article in MOS is copyrighted by Oracle.

So please refrain from re-posting MOS articles on external sites. Instead, if you find a useful article and are interested in sharing it, please pass a description and the MOS Document ID, so that users can easily find the article.

ODI: When to use RDA and RCC ?

For Oracle Data Integrator there are two troubleshooting tools available, RDA (Remote Diagnostics Agent like for most other Oracle products) and RCC (Repository Consistency Checker). So which do I use and when? 

  • RDA can be used to help diagnose issues in an ODI 11g environment and with other integrated products (e.g. Oracle database, WebCenter components and integration points).
  • RDA cannot help to verify the consistency of a repository.
  • RDA is not intrusive and can (and should) be used in development and production environments.
  • RCC must be used prior to ODI upgrades to verify if repository is consistent.
  • RCC should NOT be used on a production environment, only on a cloned environment.

See following notes for more information:

How To Run RDA for Oracle Data Integrator 11g (Note 1457914.1)
Using OCM (Oracle Configuration Manager) and RDA (Remote Diagnostic Agent) For Troubleshooting ODI (Note 1398483.1)

How To Analyze The Damaged Text Entries Detected By The ODI Repository Consistency Checker (RCC) Utility (Note 1061732.1)
