My condolances! I went through this over a year ago and yes it is a lot of headache. I had no prior experience either and I found that there isn't a whole lot of documentation to go on either. I get the impression that not many shops actually use OAS? Wouldn't be surprised... :(

We don't have dedicated staff for it - it's Oracle so it's automatically regarded as a task for the Oracle DBA..
