RE: UNIX environment

Bob,

1).  Windows workstations.
2).  We use putty with ssh enabled.
3).  No Xwindows here.  We do not manage the Unix box itself - just the
databases.  There is another group responsible for the OS environment.
4).  We use SqlPlus, OEM and Toad to manage the databases.  Sqlplus with
.bat scripting on the desktop for application installations (stored objects,
table creations etc.).

This all works well for us.  We use file shares for all of our database
create script and object management.  Nothing is on the Unix box for
creating the database.  Unix ksh scripts/cron for running backups and gather
stats jobs.  

So basically, we work in the NT world to create and maintain database schema
objects.  Also to create the database create scripts (we don't use the
Oracle tools to create or migrate databases).  Unix scripting for database
server scripting.

Hope this helps.

Subject: UNIX environment


All

I've always worked in a windows client server environment so I'd like to 
get some information from those working in UNIX and Linux. My questions are:

These questions are based on file manipulation, database creation, 
script writing and execution, setting permissions etc.

1. IN UNIX I'm assuming the server is UNIX and your workstations are 
either windows or Linux, True? What is the "typical" client in a UNIX 
environment?

2. If you are using a different OS on the workstation, you must be using 
a terminal emulator, such as putty or telnet or the like. Which one do 
you use? My guess in putty or telnet or even Cygwin would be crude at best.

3. If you're on UNIX do you use xwindows? On linux do you use a window 
manager such as gnome or kde?

4. If you have a windows client what is a good "shell" tool to manage 
the server?

Any insight would be appreciated!

Thanks
Bob
