%ORACLE_HOME%: OAS 4.0 vs Oracle 7.3 on Win NT

Post by Marc Fleischeuer » Wed, 13 May 1998 04:00:00

I am testing OAS 4.0 and I want to avoid installing it in my regular
ORACLE_HOME directory (I am running Oracle RDBMS The
installation procedure for OAS allows me to name any directory to
install itself in, and after installation it has set the ORACLE_HOME
environment variable to this directory. However, after reboot the
database will not startup with a different setting of ORACLE_HOME, and
the webserver processes can not be started when I manually reset
ORACLE_HOME to its original value. All of there adventures take place
on one single machine running Windows NT 4.0.

Am I missing something here? Should I bite the bullet and install OAS
in the database hierarchy, or is there some environment variable that
solves this situation?

1. Oracle 7.3, Win NT 4.0 and ORACLE_SID


I have an Oracle Instance running under WINNT 4.0

I want to change the SID in my database.

Besides making the necessary changes in the Oracle database side
I notice that there are a couple of WINNT services named OracleService<SID>
and OracleStart<SID>.

How do I handle those ?
