RDC session how to Control + Alt + Del

Sometimes you just need to do things in an RDC session that would appear simply, but its Windows!

If you want to hit Control + Alt + Delete to get options to lock/logoff/password change/task manager in an RDC session (remote desktop session), you need to use the key combination:

Control + Alt + End

Don’t ask me where that one came from, but it works! ūüôā

Campus Solutions Patch # Change

Oracle decided to integrate PeopleSoft patching into their main database for patch fix, and in the process the commonly used Update ID, has been change to be associated with what I call the Bug Incident, but they are referring to as the Patchset in ARU.

The ARU is Oracle’s Automated Release Update system and has gone by various other names. ¬†Since I maintain a few patch lists I have some serious updating to do, but at least they made some nice documents to show the old and new numbers. ¬†The new system appears to be clunky and difficult to to use like all new patch systems in the past. ¬†Hopefully it will get easier to use and understand with some more use. ¬†Good luck!

Here is the list for the Campus Solutions 8.9 & 9.0 Campus Bundles:

Creating Oracle Database with ASM

I found this video that shows you have to create a database when ASM is installed.

YouTube Video

I found that when I manually created the Oracle Database, that because the ASM dynamically names everything, I simply removed the directory & file name reference and replaced it with the +ASM group where I wanted the datafile to be located.  If you look at the ptddl script for a PeopleTools database or the hcddl script for an HR database you will see how it will say the directory+file name:

‘/oracle/oradata/dbfiles/tablespace1.dbf’ is replaced with:

‘+ASMHRORPTGROUP1’ depending on what you named it.

Tuxedo – Install Fails on Linux – VM could not be uncompressed

Linux uses an utility called uncompress to decompress *.Z files, however, it is not always installed by default.  It should appear in the /usr/bin folder as uncompress.  If it is not there, you can install the uncompress RPM, or you can use the gunzip program to uncompress the files by make a symbolic link.

ln -s gunzip uncompress

You might also want to make sure you have enough temporary space to uncompress the files.
