RE: so my boss insists on using oracle on NT sp6

        So basically, if your machine (with the database on it) is not connected to the network you can't connect to it's database, but once you put it on the network you can connect to it? That's definately a strange one, when you log on to the machine without logging on to the network are you logging onto the machine or are you logging on to the domain? Also, I thought SP 6 was not supported by Oracele?

        I think I recall having this problem once myself and it was a strange one. But I believe that you could try and increase the timeout in the client sqlnet file, I believe that was one of the solutions I saw on metalink. I give it some more thought, maybe I can help. have a great day
