Connecting to Oracle Enterprise Manager
I don’t usually install Oracle that often, but when I do it’s usually a successful install without too much fuss. Well, lately I’ve noticed I can’t get Enterprise Manager up in Internet Explorer. At first I just blamed it on the internet security settings being too harsh, but today I had some free time so I decided to make certain I have the talent to open it.
Long story short not being able to view the Enterprise Manager is caused by a certificate with a key length of less than 1024 bits according to Microsoft: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2661254
open a command prompt
certutil -setreg chain\EnableWeakSignatureFlags 8
browse to Enterprise Manager
If I could say one thing about working as an IT Professional it is this: the projects you are asked to complete usually have very poor documentation accompanying them (if any). I have a current project where I am converting an application and database over from Sybase to Oracle with IBM WebSphere as the application software.
It sounds really easy, but isn’t…
Oracle Install Tips
There are probably multiple data files that are zipped up that you need to unzip to install.
For me, installing 11g 32-bit on Windows 2003 Enterprise Server, I had 6 total zip files to unzip before officially attempting to install Oracle.
My biggest tip is to first unzip each zip file to the same directory. Otherwise you are guaranteed to get errors.
You may still get errors, but if you are trying to install each zip file separately then forget ‘bout it.
Converting Folder To ISO
A VMware Virtual Machine can connect to ISO files locally. However, not every file that needs to be uploaded to the VM is in an ISO format.
So, to solve this problem I have downloaded Folder2ISO. It does this one task and does it very well for FREE!
Cat 6 Cables
I’m really good with a lot of things computer-related. However, one thing I struggle with is making Cat 6 cables!
