OraD10g:AWIISSC Oracle Database 10g: Administration Workshop II Self-Study Course

Oracle Course Description:
This self-study CD ROM (SSCD) course will teach learners to configure an Oracle database for multilingual applications and distributed database access. Students will also practice various methods of recovering the database, using RMAN, SQL, and Flashback technology, use RMAN and explain the various RMAN commands. Diagnostic sources, non-critical recovery, and incomplete recovery concepts are also covered in this course. Learners will also learn how to perform incomplete recovery. In addition, this course covers various functions of the Flashback technology. In addition to performing flashback operations at the database level, you can flash back a table or recover a table that has been dropped by mistake. The course also covers the tools used to monitor and improve database performance as well as detect and repair database corruption. Finaly, earners will learn how to use various database technologies, such as Resource Manager, the Scheduler, and materialized views.
