Oracle Database Initial Setup

Maurice Aelion
Senior DBA at MA Consulting
Setup has become easier and easier with Oracle. It used to be a bit complicated in the beginning, but with the new versions, while you still need a bit of knowledge, it’s quite doable to install it and manage it. View full review »

Initial setup was complex because of the odd way the application used the database, the application vendor's conversion tools, and our stringent requirements. View full review »

I was not involved in the initial setup. I'm more of an end user of the database. View full review »

Upgrading is not an issue. As long as our application is supporting the upgrade. We can upgrade from 11g to 12c without any issues. But we have seen issues where we are upgrading our databases from 8i or 9i to 12c. Those versions are still not very compatible with 12c. View full review »

It is not complex, but you need to be aware of the best practices provided by Oracle. Therefore, I recommend to read the official documentation before starting a new Oracle installation. Also, be informed of the known issues using My Oracle Support. View full review »

The setup gets complex sometimes, when you don't use the products that are supported. If I used REL, versus Oracle Linux, you get no support on Oracle Linux, rather than REL. We couldn't go for Oracle Linux, because we have everything on REL. That took time to setup. View full review »

At first, when I was in the learning stage it was a bit difficult to install with Linux or Unix in the environment. Only with Windows can you can install it using a wizard. You should have some knowledge, to be familiar with it, the product for installing and plan managing. It was not easy. View full review »
