Netware 5 & Oracle Workgroup Server

Netware 5 & Oracle Workgroup Server

Netware 5 & Oracle Workgroup Server

I have installed Oracle On  Novell Netware 5.x. Now I have a strange problem. I am not able to connect to netware server from my 98 clients running the oracle 7.3. I came to know from my friends that oracle 7.3 is not supported in Novell 5. Is it true. If so is there any patches or any other way by which I can handle this situation. Pleas help.

Awaiting your reply

I don't have any experience in this configuration, but I checked on Oracle's Metalink and found this issue in a forum.  It's not a supported configuration from Oracle's point of view, but a customer said that they've been running it successfully.  (Specifically Oracle and Netware 5)  I guess the conclusion is that you run it at your own risk.

The address for Oracle's Metalink is http://support.oracle.com/ ; That's the logon/registration screen.  If you haven't already registered you will have to do so before using Metalink.  That involves supplying your Oracle customer id number.

I suggest that you have your implementation plans reviewed by Oracle support.  I'm sure that they will frown on installing Oracle on an unsupported platform, but no doubt they can steer you towards a configuration that they support.
