RE: 10g $ORACLE_HOME

Jurijs,

Have you installed 10g yet at your site?   Any idea as to why Oracle is
making this
particular OFA change after OFA has essentially been static for a while?


In addition, starting with 10g, they've changed how the registry
settings are defined=20
in Windows environments, no longer using the old HOME0, HOME1, etc;
instead, they are=20
using the format KEY_Ora{type}10g_home. The Home Selector tool does not
recognize
10g.   In fact, I can't see anyway to change my ORACLE_HOME from 10g to
9i other
then manually.   Is there a bigger picture here that a lot of the
OraSaurs might be=20
overlooking?   I don't think Oracle really did explicitly specify an
ORACLE_HOME value=20
before.


Thanks,
Jeff T.  =20

Jeff,
Lets ask your self how many max OH do you have in your environment? On
our site we have ~20 servers, mostly development environments with=20
relatively many OH-s on each server.
No one server has more then 10 OH. Is there any reason to add additional

directory level to make life easier?
I suppose NO.

I can do it now as well ;)
Just name directory a little bit different, for example: 9.2.0.4.db
9.2.0.4.cl 9.0.4.infa 9.0.4.bif etc.
