The overall objective of this course is threefold. First, this course instructs one in many of the day-to-day administration tasks required of an Oracle database administrator. Second, it is one of the course modules that assist in preparation for certification as an Oracle Certified Associated (OCA) database administrator. Finally, it introduces one to many of the administration sub-specialties that one might next pursue. It is increasingly rare for a single database administrator to fulfill all the required responsibilities necessary for management of an enterprise-scale Oracle database installation. Therefore, one may eventually specialize into backup and recovery strategies, database performance tuning, security administration and the like. So this course introduces the many powerful capabilities of the Oracle database and references the applicable courses within the Sideris Oracle database administration series that one might next consult.Whenever appropriate this course demonstrates how an Oracle database installation integrates with its host environment, most commonly a Linux, Unix or MS Windows operating system platform. Extensive examples, workshop exercises and solutions are provided using the SQL command-line, the Enterprise Manager Database Express and the Enterprise Manager Cloud Control interfaces.
