I believe you can try to create a pipe with the same name and it will fail
because it already exists.  Ruth

I am trying to install a vendor application with an Oracle repository =
and not making much progress.   The install has failed and the cleanup =
requires that the pipe be purged and removed or the database be bounced. =
I've been through this four times since Friday afternoon.   I can't find =
any way to view whether or not a pipe exists.  I know its not a =
conventional database object and that its some sort of memory structure. =
 Is there a way to do this?  Where do I look?

This is what they gave me to remove the pipe.
