The Oracle OVM Manager no longer uses an Oracle database for its repository, MySQL is the only supported option. So I'm going to have to learn a bit of MySQL admin. Just what I've always wanted to do Sad

Can anyone recommend a book? This is the version installed with OVM 3.4.2,
[oracle@ovmmanager1 ~]$ mysql -V
mysql  Ver 14.14 Distrib 5.6.32, for Linux (x86_64) using  EditLine wrapper
[oracle@ovmmanager1 ~]$

I recommend MySQL (Developer's Library) by Paul DuBois. This is a classic book for the Oracle MySQL. The last part of the book is about administration.

I guess most (much more than me as I switched two years ago Wink) stuff you know already, with Oracle background it's simple to learn MariaDB/MySQL, but quite difficult to learn distributed data store (NoSQL) like MongoDB. Good luck and have a lot of fun with modern and new database systems.

After the Paul DuBois I recommend Mastering MariaDB (also to broaden your horizon with MariaDB)- ISBN-13: 978-1783981540

THank you, I'll look at those. Overall, I am disappointed: I can't find one book on MySQL DB admin. A typical book has a dozen chapters teaching SQL, and then one or two on admin. In the Oracle world, it is usually assumed that you know SQL backwards before looking at admin work. Possiblys administering MySQL is sufficiently trivial that it really doesn't require any significant learning. I hope so! The OVM install includes MySQL, creates the database, and sets up some sort of backup routine. THe database won't be very big or very active, so perhaps that is enough.

That's true. MySQL/MariaDB is typical deployed in Cloud (DBaaS). The MySQL admin doesn't necessary knows all deep SQL stuff, this is the developers job. The MySQL DBA offers less service to customer, than the Oracle DBA.

The only thing the MySQL DBA has more skills is Linux, Automation and Open Source (modern system administration). In Oracle world that would do other department or team.

Yes MySQL is simpler and less powerful than Oracle ($$$).
