If O'Reilly eve published this book, my vote would be for all the hype =
and BS that comes out of the marketing machine.

I know of many companies that have medium sized Oracle instances and no =
or very limited DBA talent, and these organizations are suffering for =
it.  I laugh in their general direction!

10g - you won't need a dba

if O'Reilly ever puts out an "Oracle Annoyances" book, having ocssd
running for non-ASM, non-clustered installations in a respawn mode
without supplying the wooden stake to kill the unholy beast - well, it
gets my vote.

Yes, I commented out the line in the file /etc/inittab, but I do not
care to reboot this server on which I barely have a decent connection
thru vnc with no sysadmin at that site for another week. a reboot

inhospitable than Pittsburgh was last Sunday.

Yes, someone was nice enough to post the following on the thread listed =

[root@mybox root]# /etc/init.d/init.cssd stop
Shutting down CRS daemon.
Shutting down EVM daemon.
Shutting down CSS daemon.
Shutdown request successfully issued.

Is that too difficult to include in a note, or even in the =
btw - Oracle has re-released the 10g R1 for lin32 as, just
like they did for the 9i R2 as
