Enabling and Disabling Database feature after installation using chopt tool

When you install Oracle Database, some options are enabled and others are disabled. To enable or disable a particular database feature for an Oracle home, shut down the database and use the chopt tool.

The chopt tool is a command-line utility that is located in the directory ORACLE_HOME/bin. It uses the following syntax, where db_option is the option whose status you want to modify:

chopt [enable | disable] db_option

Refer :

Example : Disable Data mining options

[oracle@netbackuptest bin]$ pwd
[oracle@netbackuptest bin]$ chopt disable dm
Writing to /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/install/disable_dm.log…
%s_unixOSDMakePath% -f /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1/rdbms/lib/ dm_off

Book Review : Programming Android

Recently I have received Programming Android  book from oreilly publications for book review. I have interest to review this books because of this is the word now a days very popular across this world. What is Android? Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. The Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language. Features :

  • Application framework enabling reuse and replacement of components
  • Dalvik virtual machine optimized for mobile devices
  • Integrated browser based on the open source WebKit engine
  • Optimized graphics powered by a custom 2D graphics library; 3D graphics based on the OpenGL ES 1.0 specification (hardware acceleration optional)
  • SQLite for structured data storage
  • Media support for common audio, video, and still image formats (MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, PNG, GIF)
  • GSM Telephony (hardware dependent)
  • Bluetooth, EDGE, 3G, and WiFi (hardware dependent)
  • Camera, GPS, compass, and accelerometer (hardware dependent)
  • Rich development environment including a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory and performance profiling, and a plugin for the Eclipse IDE.

mount Linux sharing folder on another linux machine using nfs

I have five Linux machine, I want to create one folder on one Linux machine and share this folder on remaining Linux machine? how do we do?

Use NFS. I don’t want explain more about NFS. Here I am going to show how do we do?

If you want to share one folder of linux (1) machine,

[root@siebelfs ~]# mkdir /test

Create test file

[root@siebelfs test]# vi test.conf

and then Save it.

You need to check it out Whether portmap and nfs running or not

[root@siebelfs ~]#  chkconfig --list portmap
portmap         0:off   1:off   2:off   3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig portmap on
[root@siebelfs ~]#  chkconfig --list portmap
portmap         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep portmap
 3228 ?        Ss     0:00 portmap
 4491 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep portmap


[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig nfs on
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
And then, restart portmap and nfs service
[root@siebelfs ~]# service portmap restart
Stopping portmap:                                          [  OK  ]
Starting portmap:                                          [  OK  ]
[root@siebelfs ~]# service nfs restart
Shutting down NFS mountd:                                  [FAILED]
Shutting down NFS daemon:                                  [FAILED]
Shutting down NFS quotas:                                  [FAILED]
Shutting down NFS services:                                [FAILED]
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                                       [  OK  ]
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep nfs
 4664 ?        S<     0:00 [nfsd4]
 4666 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4667 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4668 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4669 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4670 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4671 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4672 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4673 ?        S      0:00 [nfsd]
 4691 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep nfs
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep mountd
 4676 ?        Ss     0:00 rpc.mountd
 4694 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep mountd
[root@siebelfs ~]# chkconfig --list nfs
nfs             0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[root@siebelfs ~]# ps ax | grep portmap
 4585 ?        Ss     0:00 portmap
 4699 pts/1    R+     0:00 grep portmap

Now We need to add shared folder directory in /etc/exports file like below , Here I have used four linux machine, If I missed any ipaddress of client linux machine
you can not able to access this folder.

[root@siebelfs ~]# vi /etc/exports
/test ipaddress(rw)
/test ipaddress(rw)
/test ipaddress(rw)
/test ipaddress(rw)
and then save it.
Again restart nfs service only.
[root@siebelfs ~]# service nfs restart
Shutting down NFS mountd:                                  [  OK  ]
Shutting down NFS daemon:                                  [  OK  ]
Shutting down NFS quotas:                                  [  OK  ]
Shutting down NFS services:                                [  OK  ]
Starting NFS services:                                     [  OK  ]
Starting NFS quotas:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS daemon:                                       [  OK  ]
Starting NFS mountd:                                       [  OK  ]

Now Go to another linux machine (client).
configure portmap and nfs like above. but don’t add any line in /etc/exports file.(in case if you want to
share this machine folder for other client machine , you can add line like above).
here 10.1.x.xx — ipaddress of shared folder machine.

[root@siebelas ~]# mkdir /test
[root@siebelas ~]# mount -t nfs -o rw 10.1.X.XX:/test /test
[root@siebelas ~]# cd /test
[root@siebelas test]# ls
