How to connect Oracle database using Python?

To connect to an Oracle database using Python, you need to use the cx_Oracle module. This module provides a Python interface for connecting to an Oracle database and manipulating the data within it. To use the cx_Oracle module, you will first need to install it on your system. You can do this using the following command:

pip install cx_Oracle


Once the module is installed, you can use it to connect to an Oracle database by creating a connection object. This is done using the connect() function, which accepts several parameters for specifying the details of the database connection. Here is an example of how to create a connection object:

import cx_Oracle

# Replace username, password, and database_name with the appropriate values
username = 'your_username'
password = 'your_password'
database_name = 'your_database_name'

# Create a connection object
connection = cx_Oracle.connect(username, password, database_name)


Once you have created a connection object, you can use it to execute SQL statements and manipulate the data in the Oracle database. For example, you can create a cursor object using the cursor() method of the connection object, and then use the cursor to execute a SQL query and process the results:

# Create a cursor object
cursor = connection.cursor()

# Execute a SQL query
cursor.execute('SELECT * FROM employees')

# Process the results
for row in cursor:
print(row)

# Close the cursor and connection
cursor.close()
connection.close()

Creating Multiple VLANs over Bonding Interfaces with Proper Routing on a Centos Linux Host

In this post, I am going to explain configuring multiple VLANs on a bond interface. First and foremost, I would like to describe the environment and give details of the infrastructure. The server has 4 Ethernet links to a layer 3 switch with names: enp3s0f0, enp3s0f1, enp4s0f0, enp4s0f1 There are two bond interfaces both configured as active-backup bond0, bond1 enp4s0f0 and enp4s0f1 interfaces are bonded as bond0. Bond0 is for making ssh connections and management only so corresponding switch ports are not configured in trunk mode. enp3s0f0 and enp3s0f1 interfaces are bonded as bond1. Bond1 is for data and corresponding switch ports are configured in trunk mode. Bond0 is the default gateway for the server and has IP address 10.1.10.11 Bond1 has three subinterfaces with VLAN 4, 36, 41. IP addresses are 10.1.3.11, 10.1.35.11, 10.1.40.11 respectively. Proper communication with other servers on the network we should use routing tables. There are three

Listing Zimbra Accounts with Some Details

Recently I have to export the user list for a particular domain. Luckily Zimbra has Admin GUI with a search feature. When you search accounts, you can download search results as a comma-separated csv file. So I did a search and download the result file, but the result did not have all the columns I need and also there is no option for customizing columns for search results. So I had to write a bash script to get the desired list. Here is the bash script ( It can be customized by adding or removing field names. Run it under zimbra user like ./zimbra_account_list.sh <domain_name_here> ):
