Lesson 13

Oracle Server Manager Conclusion

This module demonstrated that the Server Manager is a command-line utility used to manage Oracle databases.
In addition, Server Manager's functionality is being merged into SQL*Plus, and that SQL*Plus now supercedes Server Manager as the command-line interface to Oracle.
Some of the simpler Server Manager commands have been experimented with, and by now you are comfortable with starting Server Manager and connecting to a database. You should also be comfortable entering and executing commands. You should know how to recover when you mistakenly enter an invalid command.
