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 =
=3D
and not making much progress.   The install has failed and the cleanup =
=3D
requires that the pipe be purged and removed or the database be bounced.
=3D
I've been through this four times since Friday afternoon.   I can't find
=3D
any way to view whether or not a pipe exists.  I know its not a =3D
conventional database object and that its some sort of memory structure.
=3D
 Is there a way to do this?  Where do I look?


This is what they gave me to remove the pipe.

declare ret number;=3D20
begin=3D20
dbms_pipe.purge('usernamePIPE_MASTER');=3D20
ret:=3D3Ddbms_pipe.remove_pipe(user||'pipe_master1');=3D20
end;=3D20
