RE: OEM 2.2. installation blues

Hi Patrice,

I've successfully installed OEM 2.2 *TWICE* (thanks to Oracle Support for telling me that it was the only freaking way to get iFS installed on the same box...) on my P-III 800Mhz running Win2K ("WinTuke") with SP1 and 512MB memory. You don't mention where your repository DB is, however. My DB is an O8. on an OpenVMS box, which frees up about 200MB of mem for me.

I haven't had any problems regarding the installation. It's just AFTER the install that I run into chaos and mayhem. Stupid events won't deregister...

Good luck! :)
