I agree with you. We used to use the gateway/odbc/separater listener to get to sql server and teradata but stopped. Too many hassles. We have sql server replicating live to our oracle db's. I guess it's pretty easy from the sql server side. Much easier to let them push to you.

I may get slammed for this, but as a DBA in both platforms and utilizing both products in the past, I have to ask- Is there anyway you can simply utilize the Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle, adding the Oracle database server as a linked server on the SQL Server side and query from there?
I find this to be more stable and require less DBA upkeep....
