First advice is to run oracle on a unix/linux machine instead of windows.

If you do have to use windows, then bottom line, what Mr. Bakker said aka recommending using a local admin account is pretty much dead on as good advice based on all the postings we have seen here in cdos over the years.

You can use the google groups search interface against cdos and check yourself if you want to. Received on Sun Jun 22 2008 - 18:17:53 CDT
