Yes it is better. This is all I was able to get. There is a recession out there. It doesn't have anything to do with the fact that Oracle 11.2.0 RAC demands at least one more IP which is as stupid as it gets. A free IP address is not a small thing to demand and yet nobody has been informing the (l)users of that fact. Requesting an additional significant resource without telling anyone is actually as enraging as the recent Metalink "upgrade".

I will tell you why was the Metalink screwed up (I believe that the proper word is "upgrade", but I am a foreigner and my English leaves much room for improvement).
The rumor is that there was some kind of commercial agreement between Adobe and Oracle which includes Metalink bein switched to flash, which is profitable for both sides. The problem is that nobody has asked the users. Also, a requirement for an additional IP is not a small requirement. Nobody discussed that, either. That is what I am complaining about. Also, the installation fails with an unintelligible message. I need to open a SR - again. Received on Fri Feb 26 2010 - 14:28:51 CST
