Oracle 11g Oops...

Been quite busy of late, so my blog has not had quite the number of updates that I'd like. One thing I thought I'd share with you is that I found my first Oracle 11g bug last week. Apparently when you are using the FRA with 11g it decides to archive redo logs to the FRA (as one would expect) AND to the default archivelog destination directory (which one does not expect). I've opened an SR with Oracle on this and we will see how it goes. I've heard a story or two of other bugs that have been discovered, but I've not heard details yet.

So, the moral of the story with 11g is, be careful out there!

I'm finishing up another chapter of my new book, Oracle Database 11g New Features. I'll have some more Oracle features to share with you in the next couple of days, so please standby and be patient.

So, are you saying that you need to be careful with 11g, but you didn't have to be careful with past releases? :)

We all know that past Oracle Database versions have been flawless! :-)

My experience with 11gR1 - 6 months +, with last 3 months in production, is that it is the most buggy release of Oracle ever (from my experience with 7.1+). With the lastest PSU it seems to be relatively stable now.
