Linux OL7/RHEL7: PRVE-0421 : No entry exists in /etc/fstab for mounting /dev/shm

  This is due to below bugs: OL7 -  Unpublished Bug 21441387- 12.2/MAIN/OL7.1: CVU REPORTS /DEV/SHM NOT MOUNTED WHEN IT IS MOUNTED  21441387.8 RHEL 7 - Unpublished Bug 25907259 : RHEL7.2: CVU REPORTS /DEV/SHM NOT MOUNTED WHEN IT IS MOUNTED  25907259.8 As a work-around in OL7: In OL7, the /dev/shm is not mounted in /etc/fstab on a fresh system, it is done in: [root@testc140 u02]# ll /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99base/ -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 11379 Mar 26 10:14 vi /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/99base/ and comment the below lines 62 if ! ismounted /dev/shm; then 63 mkdir -m 0755 /dev/shm 64 mount -t tmpfs -o mode=1777,nosuid,nodev,strictatime tmpfs /dev/shm >/dev/null 65 fi so, this validation is not really valid for OL7.    We can also safely ignore this message.

How to set up the Oracle Wallets in Oracle Database 19C

  The Oracle Wallet is a container or repository that stores authentication and credentials such as certificates, certificate requests, and private keys., By using this we can connect to database without providing the schema name & password, Password will be connected by using the TNS ALIES name & hence the schema are encrypted & stored in the oracle wallets. Let us configure the schema password by using the wallets. Create a directory to store the wallets. Create a directory to store the password $ mkdir -p /u01/app/wallets Create a wallet & provide the wallet password. $ mkstore -wrl /u01/app/wallets/ -create Enter password: ********* Enter password again: ******** $ ll total 8 -rw-------. 1 oracle oinstall 194 Nov 1 14:38 cwallet.sso -rw-------. 1 oracle oinstall 0 Nov 1 14:38 cwallet.sso.lck -rw-------. 1 oracle oinstall 149 Nov 1 14:38 ewallet.p12 -rw-------. 1 oracle oinstall 0 Nov 1 14:38 ewallet.p12.lck Check the status of listener $lsnrctl status listener_name;

How to write to a CSV file using Oracle SQL*Plus

  SPOOL command  The  SPOOL  command is  unavailable  in the browser-based SQL*Plus version,  iSQL*Plus . To generate files while using iSQL*Plus, change the necessary preference settings to directly output to a file. This is accomplished using the  SPOOL  statement. While  SPOOL  is  active , SQL*PLus will store the output of any query to the specified file. Therefore, the next command to enter is  spool : spool filepath Skipping ahead slightly,  after  your query is inserted, you also need to halt  spool  so the file output is closed by using the  spool off  command: spool off Insert the query  The last step after the settings are modified and  spool  is running is to insert your query. For our simple example, we’re outputting all books from our  books  table. SELECT   title,   author FROM   authors; Don’t forget the semi-colon to close out your query statement, then enter the aforementioned  spool off  command. That’s it, you’ve generated a new text file with the results of your qu
