Forgive my ignorance here, but are 10g Grid Control and Oracle Enterprise Manager console (the windows install located on the client cd) the same thing? I'm a little confused as to the differences in the OEM Grid Control install cds, that include a patch to on a seperate disk and the version that is included on the client disk. I know the Grid Control install disks are for AIX but why isn't there a patch for the windows client version? Received on Wed May 23 2007 - 12:44:54 CDT
