New look of Oracle Enterprise Manager Database Control 11gR2

Finally I had the time to install the new release on my virtual machine. I first installed the new Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.4 and then Oracle Database Enterprise Edition. After the usual Linux customizations (less than the last time, though), the Database installation itself was pretty fast & easy. Boy that was much harder in the old days with version 7 🙂

From an Oracle Instructors perspective, one major improvement of the new release is very obvious and needed: The links of Database Control are no longer in this incredible bad visible light blue! That was quite a problem, especially if you are teaching with a beamer. I will come to the other important new features of 11gR2 later on 🙂
