In the first part of this article explained why it is very important to implement security in an environment of “Oracle Exadata Database Machine” to restrict the use of the “Grid Disk” to certain databases or clusters of ASM and Also it unveiled the procedure done to implement security at ASM. In this new article we will continue the demonstration of how to implement security level database.
