We actually had the same fight with… it took several tries to get our first environment upgraded from because WMI seems to gets its hooks too far into the Oracle homes.

So not necessarily a new problem, but interesting to know that Oracle has finally gotten around to acknowledging it.

Subject: Ora win CPU - disable WMI

For those of you that support ms win db servers I saw an interesting line in the readme for the bundle released today.

3.1.1 environment checks
3. Explicitly disable WMI
Sc config winmgmt start=disabled

There is also a line included to re-enable it after the patch has been applied.
