Re: sqlnet version

Hi there.
It is Net8 now, not SQLNet anymore.
But you should have the same tools on the client disk as well (Net Assistant, Net COnfiguration assistant, ODBC etc. ).
Install the client software on your machine and take the DBA option. But be careful.
If you have have older versions of Oracle Client sw on your workstation, you will be asked to create an alternate ORACLE_HOME.
An ORACLE_HOME selector will then be installed.
If you do NOT have admin rights on your pc, you will be in a wee bit of trouble, because the change of ORACLE_HOME requires the right to change environment variables. With two versions on your pc you should also use the
environment variable TNS_ADMIN to ste the path to the network admin path.
Hope, i could help you.

Re: sqlnet version

Hello Kamlesh,

with Oracle8 they decided to not call it "SQL*Net V3",
but "Net8". They do use still the same config files:
listener.ora, sqlnet.ora, tnsnames.ors, in the same
directory "$ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/", though.
You could stay with the "old" database, but you have
to use the new "listener"!
Be aware of a new "name space", i.e. ONAMES (called
Oracle Names), which you you would not be able to use
with an "old" instance - you have to stick with the old
TNSNAMES instead (still working, no problem).

HTH,
Wodisch
