Firstly let me say that I totally agree with you Jim. The reason for the requirement is that oracle will run in a cluster. The application has been written for Oracle 9i. In the same cluster will run another software that needs win 2003 64 bit, so the
solution, in my opinion could be to upgrade the application to 10 g or to install
it in a different cluster.

But, as you can guess, both the solutions aren't up to me, as I act as consultant, I only can
give advices, but cannot take decisions by myself. M. Received on Sun Jun 08 2008 - 12:12:00 CDT
