I have uploaded a video on managing services (add, start, check, remove) in a 12c RAC database with a Pluggable Database....
What if the current (default) location for Pluggable Databases is running out of space and, yet, you want to create an Oracle Managed Files Pluggable Database ?
Earlier this week (10-April), I had done a Switchover from the 2node RAC database to a SingleInstance database.

Continuing the series of posts on the RAC/ASM to SingleInstance/FileSystem DataGuard configuration … With both instances RAC1 and RAC2 running, I have redo shipping from both instances to the single instance STBY.(In my test server with 3 VMs, it takes a number of minutes to have all 3 instances running and communicating with each other … so there are spurious ORA and TNS errors until the 3 instances have stabilized.
