    Unanswered: where to start in oracle

    Hi All,

    Oracle supports ANSI SQL just like every major RDBMS

    Let me google that for you
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    You can't push a string.

    For real world challenges, you are free to provide answers here or on other Oracle related forums.

    LOL @ the LMGTFY. I've never seen that before.

    Anacedent is a little testy today.

    This weekend on Facebook, I asked the question "how is my wife like my first bike?"

    Now you may be thinking the answer is:
    "They were both ridden hard before you got them." or
    "The seat is too big and the tubes leak."

    Those were good guesses but the correct answer is "they are both huffy."

    Ok, I didn't REALLY put that on facebook... but I wanted to.

    My Bad! What i'm asking is a straight forward tutorial without reading a whole bunch of manuals. If your suggestion is Mr. Google, here's right next to me anyways..I think the best solution on my problem is Mr Google..

    BTW, Thanks for your prompt reply "though, it's quite annoying".

    As i've said. I'm looking for a solution... not a problem. I'm just starting in oracle and don't know where to start with. Do you think its a good advise giving your comment "let me google it for you"?.. Anyways, thanks for your time and immediate response. And i would like to apologize if i made some "unnecessary" comments.

    Have a good day.. let's move forward.

    Actually without a basic understand of oracle you cant proceed very far. I would read the following manual from oracle.

    Oracle is big. what are you looking for, PL/SQL, database, applications ??, and new stuff for each keeps coming out with new releases. You are going to have to spend some time on it. I can understand if your inquiry bothers some members. I could give you 12 links but how do I know if its what you are looking for? Dont even know where you are coming from.
    every tried metalink, sql junkies, dbforums, I see youve been in since 2004. you cant be that naive. There is a 2-day DBA deal on oracle.com. maybe thats what you need.

    Thanks Naweed/beilstwh,

    I'm aiming for being a full DBA. I'm looking for examples such as below:

    1. create Oracle instance from scratch (without using dbca).
    2. Adding new tablespace.
    3. creating a new user, and setting up the default tablespace.
    4. Steps for backup (Cold and Hot backup).
    5. Grid Control
    6. RAC

    BTW, is 11G compatible with Fedora11? I have setup a box at home and i'm planning to put the Oracle 11g DB.

    Again Thank you.

    Why are you willing and capable of reading answers from this website,
    but seemingly unwilling to read answers from Search and Download Oracle Database, Application Server, and Collaboration Suite Documentation

    Why do you expect volunteers to document here what already has been documented many times by Oracle & others just to support your laziness?
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.

    Here we are again... What I'm asking is pointers... Do i need to read the all the books on the internet to become a DBA? And also, I did not ask you anyways, I did ask the guys namely "Naweed/beilstwh". If you don't want to answer a question, it's fine with me. But never comment sarcastic words.

    "Why do you expect volunteers to document here what already has been documented many times by Oracle & others just to support your laziness?"

    I have seen a lot of your posts here and most are "search the google". Is that a nice answer? i believe it's not. BTW, thanks for informing me that Mr. Google is there....

    Ready, Fire, AIM!


    What I'm asking is pointers..

    POINTERS?????
    >1. create Oracle instance from scratch (without using dbca).
    Anwer is single SQL command - CREATE DATABASE ....
    >2. Adding new tablespace.
    Anwer is single SQL command - CREATE TABLESPACE .....
    >3. creating a new user, and setting up the default tablespace.
    Anwer is single SQL command - CREATE USER .....
    >4. Steps for backup (Cold and Hot backup).
    Anwer is single command - rman

    Each is documented in the Fine Manuals found at Search and Download Oracle Database, Application Server, and Collaboration Suite Documentation

    >Ready, Fire, AIM!

    Nice comment once again. I would like to thank all the posts from Mr. Anacedent, it's either you laugh or get mad! ("i will google it for you").. I believe i need to change the topic... "How to google an answer to my questions" or "How to find an answer in google without getting NUTS!"

    Hey Mr. I'll posted another topic.. Kindly reply on that what i can find the answer in google, okay?
