I agree that there is lot of room for improvement in OID configuration :)

It is a frustrating process to get it to work for such a simple purpose and if we didn't also plan to use it for EUS later, we might have tried a different approach.

Once it is setup though, it has been very stable (no unplanned outages due to bugs, etc in the past 1+ years). We have two OID servers with replication setup. Each of them is hosted in a vmware environment.

        I'm looking for what people use today now that Onames has become history. This is a multi location within and outside the US and managing TNSNAMES.ORA files is well a PAIN. I'm especially interested in anyone who has or is using TnsManager from Andrew Barry (, especially with regard to support.
