Yeah, but you see, this is how it works in the real world I - and many others - actually live in:
1- we bypass the checks on any software install and it goes through without any errors
2- anything, and I mean anything, goes wrong with setup later on 3- external "expert" is called in who promptly identifies point 1 as the "source of all evil" (SOAE for short)

do I need to go on to point 4?...

So, it's Aix 7.1 for us. And whatever else the installer then decides to point as the SOAE.
It just added another week or so to my schedule for the year, and a lot of pain for the Aix sysadmins.

Lovely, I just knew I could count on Oracle to deliver inefficiencies and delays into our projects... Received on Tue Jan 17 2012 - 14:50:45 CST
