Any issues with having two 9i ( databases on the same Win 2003 
server?  We've had one small departmental Production DB on this server for 
about 3 years and want to put another there.  We have lots of HPUX and 
Linux servers with multiple DBs and know how to do that very well.

I've put Oracle DBs on Win servers since Oracle7, but don't recall that I 
ever had two on the same machine at once.  All I think I need to do is use 
the oradim utility to create a new Windows Service and put a pfile in 
ORACLE_HOME\database pointing to the one for the new DB, along with a 
password file.  The new DB will use the same ORACLE_HOME as the existing 
one and, of course, I'll make sure I adjust the SGA, etc. of the new DB so 
that it fits in available memory.

Any gotchas that y'all have encountered or things I've forgotten?
