You probably want to patch to ... hostname changes might best be accompanied by a reconfig of the database control stuff and various files in the network/admin directory.

If you really know what you are doing ... then you can often get away with moving oracle software from machine to machine ... if you really know what you are doing. I don't think that you fit into that category however.

If this is something you are doing often maybe some klnd of vm solution might work for you. Received on Fri Mar 20 2009 - 18:18:49 CDT
