  • Virtualisation best practices

    I'm missing documentation, whitepapers and best practices around virtualisation. Like it or not but big parts of large systems are running in virtual environments and VMWare, OpenStack, NetApp, 3PAR, SAN-solutions etc is very common in everything...
  • Copy DB and schema

    No idea if this is something that others would want, but currently I need to copy a database and its schema and it would be a lot easier if I could do this with a simple procopy style command.

    Currently in OEM you can configure BIW and APW resources to autostart with the DB, but as far as I can see you have to manually start the AIW. Please can this be added to the OEM features so we don't keep forgetting to start it.
  • Message numbers for *all* messages

    Please add message numbers for ALL log messages.
  • Allow field extent change with drop/add field
