March 18th, 2014: Virtual Sysadmin Day for Europe, Middle East, and Africa [35178]
By Larry Wake

Larry writes, "In case you're new to this: the Oracle Technology Network Virtual Sysadmin Days are a series of hands-on, proctored labs for systems administrators, brought to you on the web. They're free, although you do need to register, and there is some prep work you need to do beforehand.

The next one in the series is coming up on Tuesday, March 16th and will start at 9 AM GMT, so we're calling this the "Europe/Middle East/Africa" edition, although we never discriminate -- jump in from wherever you are then, and we'll be there..."

By Chris Kawalek

Chris writes, "If you missed Virtual Sysadmin Day last month, it is available in replay mode.

Back Up a Thousand Databases Using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c [34676]
by Porus Homi Havewala

Porus writes, "Oracle has long supplied a powerful utility, Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), along with the database software install, which is used to backup and recover Oracle databases, either as a complete or incremental backup. The scripts are placed in a shell script wrapper at the Unix level, and then scheduled using the Unix cron job facility. These scripts need to be tested, verified and maintained.

While this task is manageable for one or two databases, the same task must be repeated with every new database or every new database server that is provisioned-and the time spent on setting up such backups increases correspondingly.

In this technical article, we will see how the DBA can set up and schedule RMAN database backups for thousands of databases using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c more easily and efficiently than the older, more time-consuming, manual method of performing Unix shell scripting and cron jobs for each database to be backed up..."
