2017OOW – OOW Messages

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 07:20:00 +0000

No surprise that #OOW17 was all about Cloud, but that is now cloud across the entire portfolio.Oracle talked about the content in #OOW17 being the equivalent to a year's education. So no way I could take all that in. To me #OOW is about finding the areas I need to know about, get the headlines […]

Sat, 14 Oct 2017 11:04:00 +0000

Another of my now traditions pre #OOW is the UX training at HQ. The UX advocates within the ACE program come together and learn all that is new and product direction.

I didn't cycle this year as I did Javaone4Kids, but that […]

Changing Logfiles Permission of WebLogic and Node Manager Logfiles to 644

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 10:17:00 +0000

In some cases you will need to align the Logfile permissions of the Oracle WebLogic Server (12.2.1.1 and 12.2.1.2) and Node Manager generated Logfiles to 644 (-rw-r--r--), so that for example Monitoring Tools like Patrol can access and monitor the WebLogic Server Logfiles with another OS user as the Oracle Software Installation user.Just take a […]
