Am trying to configure instant client 10_2 on RH EL 4.4. So have set LD_LIBRARY_PATH, PATH and ORACLE_HOME to the dir where the unzipped instant client lives.
However cannot seem to connect to remote DB using sqlplus like so: sqlplus user/password_at_IPAddress:1521/FRED Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle software directory

But if I invoke sqlplus user/password_at_FRED on the remote box this works purfect.

I guess I am missing something, but not being an expert I am not sure what!

Anyone care to advise?

TIA Kevin
