Working with Oracle multi-tenant architecture gives us some obvious benefits but also some challenges. What if we want to change a system parameter but only for a certain pluggable database (PDB) and keep it default for all others? Starting from 12.1 Oracle provides the ability to modify parameters on PDB level. If you look to a reference documentation for database parameters it states clearly whether it can be applied on CDB level or not. And with every new release we have more and more parameters which can be changed on PDB level. It has grown from 185 for 126.96.36.199 to 194 on 188.8.131.52.Continue reading “Oracle multi-tenant: PDB scope parameters and where you can see them.”

Migrating a new PDB to the existing 19c DataGuard on ExaCC.
We’ve already discussed how to migrate databases from a standalone 12.2 database to a pluggable database (PDB) in a 19c container in the Oracle cloud. But what if the target container database (CDB) is already part of a Data Guard configuration and has several PDB in it? I will try to go through the main steps on how to do that without breaking the replication.Continue reading “Migrating a new PDB to the existing 19c DataGuard on ExaCC.”
