Change round the corner

To begin with, I would like to apologize for the long duration where I could not send posts, I got a lot of emails from people asking about the reason, to share with you it was due to a change which was keeping me occupied. In my blog,I have talked about so many trends and changes that organization faces in today's environment.

IDM 10.1.4.3 installed

Just to update everyone those who ere waiting for IDM 10.1.4.3 patchset results.

Moreover one more issue we found in older version, there were huge error files generation in $ORACLE_HOME/hostname_domain.com_IDM10143/sysman/recv/errors which we didn't found in this patch. I guess those who were waiting can install this one.

There are two new behaviours in Oracle 10g RDBMS that can in extreme cases, in combination with a system that calls dbms_stats very frequently, create a significant performance overhead.

Removing Credentials from a Cloned EBS Database

During the post clone actions, changing the apps pasword went wrong. Because of that the applsys and apps password were not the same anymore. Trying to fix the problem using FNDCPASS was useless, FNDCPASS was not working anymore.We saw 'APP-FND-02704: Unable to alter user APPS to change password.' in the log file.
