umount: This utility only unmounts cifs filesystems

Can’t umount Red-Hat filesystem with error “This utility only unmounts cifs filesystems” either with force?

[@Linux-redhat5 ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.11 (Tikanga)


[@Linux-redhat5 /]# umount /cifsfilesystem/data/custom

Shellscript: Which database is this service_name from?

Strange question, right? You should know you applications and databases and how everything works, right?

Happen that some days ago a client requested me to identify from which database is a service_name. Easy? Not if the server have 46 database instances running…

Ok, now how can I can this information as quick as possible?

I know that the command below give me all distinct databases in CRS:

/u01/app/ stat res -t -w "TYPE = ora.database.type"

Now, lets make some sed magic:

[root@nprd01dbadm01 ~]# /u01/app/ stat res -t -w "TYPE = ora.database.type" |grep ora. |sed 's/ora./srvctl status service -d /' |sed 's/.db/ |grep \$1/' | head -1
srvctl status service -d dba |grep $1

Teradata ODBC for Unix OS

To connection between unix machine with teradata environment is needed to install ODBC Driver and some others components (dependencies). All Items can be found in Teradata Downloads site:

Teradata OBDC Driver has 3 dependecies:

1. Shared common components for Internationalization (TDICU)
2. Teradata GSS client package (TeraGSS)
3. Teradata Tools and Utilities Base (TTU)

After download all items, run as root: rpm -ivh “component_name” –nodeps

Eg: rpm -ivh teragss1510- --nodeps

Use “–nodeps” only to not need to install in order

Auto start GoldenGate

How to autostart GoldenGate services after system startup?

On Linux: /etc/rc.local

#Auto start GoldenGate 
su - oracle -c "/oracle/goldengate/./ggsci paramfile startGG.obey"

On GoldenGate ggsci path, create follow file:

cd /oracle/goldengate/
echo "start mgr" > startGG.obey
GGSCI  1> edit params mgr
--Startup  MGR


RHEL: Figuring out CPUs, Cores and Hyper-Threading

Hi all!
It’s a recurrent subject, right? But no one is 100% sure to how figure this out… So, let me quickly show you my way:

– Physical CPUs (sockets):

[root@mysrvr ~]# grep -i "physical id" /proc/cpuinfo | sort -u | wc -l
[root@mysrvr ~]# dmidecode -t processor |grep CPU
        Version: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5570 @ 2.93GHz
        Version: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X5570 @ 2.93GHz

So, 2 physical CPUs.

– Physical Cores

[root@mysrvr ~]# egrep -e "core id" -e ^physical /proc/cpuinfo|xargs -l2 echo|sort -u
physical id : 0 core id : 0
physical id : 0 core id : 1
physical id : 0 core id : 2
physical id : 0 core id : 3
physical id : 1 core id : 0
physical id : 1 core id : 1
physical id : 1 core id : 2
physical id : 1 core id : 3

Each one of Physical Processors has 4 cores.
So, there is two quad-cores. This way, we have 8 cores at all.

– Logical CPUs

[root@mysrvr ~]# grep -i "processor" /proc/cpuinfo | sort -u | wc -l

Ok, so we have cores in double.
This means we have Hyper-Threading (technology by Intel Processors).

Not so hard, right?

Those links are similar and quite cool to understand the concepts:


ORA-27054: NFS file system where the file is created or resides is not mounted with correct options

Due to ease in which we can go to the future or return to the past using Goldengate, it becomes increasingly necessary recover archives from backup, sometimes it is necessary to recover a several days.
To do it, generally we need large disk space, at this time, starts a searching for storage disks.

After finding a disk, is need to mount it, i performed with simply mount options in AIX.
