We have an oracle instance on test-db-1.nplab.redhat.com
(calistoga.nplab.redhat.com) in Mountain View that is way out of date
and is unusable.
Need to educate mmccune on how to get it up to date with the latest
schema or develop some minimal process to keep it updated.
james... not sure what's the best way to go about this... either a
complete schema refresh from the build system, or a TOAD diff + script.
Heh, even if we use the build system, we'll probably need a diff
anyway. So might not be bad to see how far from reality a "pristine"
hosted schema would be from stage.
Just as a headsup, I tried to connect to the box with the following
(PROTOCOL = TCP)
(HOST = test-db-1.nplab.redhat.com)
(PORT = 1521))
(SID = webdev2)
Attempting connection to rhnuser@webdev2
Error: Could not connect to database: ORA-12541: TNS:no listener (DBD
ERROR: OCIServerAttach) 
I logged into the box (standard RHN root password) and poked around.
Oracle was listening on 1521, I stopped/started oracle with the init.d
script but it still wouldn't accept my connection.
Any assistance on getting the listener to respond to requests would be
Mike, usually there are two parts to Oracle. The database and the TNS
Listener. Sounds like you bounced the DB but not the listener.
I got the db/listener started. I successfully connected remotely. Although I
had to put the following in my tnsnames:
(PROTOCOL = TCP) (HOST = calistoga.nplab.redhat.com) (PORT = 1521))
(SID = webdev2)
It didn't seem to like test-db-1 as the host. calistoga and test-db-1 both
resolve to the same IP.
Mike, what version of the scheam do you want loaded? The latest 3.6 version?
Dropped all objects in webdev2 instance. Intalled the latest 3.7 satellite
schema. All of the objects are owned by the rhn user. Let me know if you have
