I just checked my windows box running Windows Server 2003/Oracle 10.2.0.2.0 and the 12 character name shows up just fine in v$instance. All my redhat boxes have 6 or 7 character names.

Not being a Windoze admin I certainly don't know, but there is a bug in Oracle (at least through 10g) that limits the host_name in v$instance to the first 8 characters.

Subject: windows host name length
We just received some new servers and the admin group is proposing a new naming convention for them. The name would be 12 characters in length. Are there any limitations on windows for the length of a server name?
