Maybe because there are more Oracle docs I can read all my life? And, by the way, many oracle tools are built by the flintstones (f.e. SQL plus *), there are and must be better ways to do the work.

Sorry, why do you think I did not try to troubleshoot this? Sure I am part of the problem and the admin is it too. But in my opinion oracle is reason for it because there is no intuitive to do some standard actions.

In my opinion oracle hides important information inside a mass of useless information.
You have to decide whether you administrate oracle or do any other work. But in my case my normal work is to develop database software and therefore I have to administrate my OracleDB on my own. There is not enough manpower to split into admins/developers in this situation.

I read a lot of your answers and there was a lot of helping answers. But please accept, that oracle is not that userfriendly as it should in my sight.
