Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Documentation

Managing an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure Instance

This topic describes the Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure management tasks for Autonomous Databases that you complete using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console or the API. Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure instances are used by Autonomous Databases using the dedicated deployment option. For an overview of the dedicated deployment option, see Overview of Autonomous Transaction Processing Dedicated Deployments.

    Note

  • This topic is not applicable to Autonomous Databases using the serverless deployment option.
  • Dedicated deployment is currently available only for Autonomous Transaction Processing databases.

Using the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console

The following management operations can be performed on Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure instances in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure:

  • Configuring the automatic maintenance schedule

  • Viewing the next scheduled maintenance date and maintenance history
  • Copying the Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure endpoint
  • Terminating the Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure instance

Tip

Oracle recommends that you define the acceptable maintenance times for your Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure instances and Autonomous Container Databases. Doing so will prevent maintenance runs from occurring at times that would be disruptive to regular database operations.

To view the next scheduled maintenance for an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure
To view the maintenance history of an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure
To view or copy the Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure endpoint
To terminate an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure

Using the API

For information about using the API and signing requests, see REST APIs and Security Credentials. For information about SDKs, see Software Development Kits and Command Line Interface.

Use the UpdateAutonomousExadataInfrastructure API operation to configure the automatic maintenance schedule for your infrastructure instance.

Use the GetMaintenanceRun API to view the details of a maintenance run that is scheduled, in progress, or that has ended.

Use the ListMaintenanceRun API to get a list of maintenance runs in a specified compartment.

Use the TerminateAutonomousExadataInfrastructure API operation to delete an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure instance.
