I used the Perl Development Kit from ActiveState-allows you to bundle a perl script with a perl runtime plus the required libraries for moving my "scripts" from the build machine to the monitoring targets. You will need to have the same Oracle client software on the destination platform though, I used an instant client which is simple enough to install and used 10.2 for maximum compatibility with Oracle releases. Just remember to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH if you get undefined references.

That depends, I had to rebuild the DBD::Oracle module for Solaris 9 using the same technique as before. The module will also be local to your perl installation.

Hope this helps,
