Oracle Database Administration Fundamentals II Tutorial

Oracle Database Administration Fundamentals II is the third in a series of four courses covering Oracle Certification course #1Z0-032, and more. Like the other courses in this series of Oracle Certification titles, this course teaches and demonstrates by example using thoroughly tested examples. In this course, instructor Gavin Powell covers Oracle Net Services, Backup and Recovery including RMAN, Oracle Enterprise Manager, Transportable Tablespaces and SQL*Loader. In addition, there are small sections introducing other Oracle optional features such as Standby databases (both Logical and Physical) plus Replication (both traditional and using Streams). Net Services covers architecture, connection configuration, listener configuration (from basics to connection profiling and load balancing), all the facts about connection strings and Oracle Net Services naming methods, even introducing some advanced features.
