Re: Oracle 10

We've done some 10g implementations, both in our labs so our software can support it, as well as some production implementations. Most of 10g seems reasonably stable, but the RAC parts seem to have a ways to go. The biggest problem we've had is that Oracle support has no idea how to support 10g RAC (which changed a great deal from 9i). Open TARs resulted in the support tech often giving us 9i advice, stuff that no longer applied in 10g. In one case, when this was pointed out, the tech admitted they had very little information on 10g RAC.

The featureset seems very nice, and the single instance 10g seems just great, but I'm very leery of opening TARs against 10g RAC.

Thanks,
Matt
