Calling on Oracle 11g Developers
Microsoft is courting Oracle users offering 50 percent discounts
to those who migrate off Oracle databases onto SQL Server. The timing
comes as Oracle
the Windows version of its 11g database for release by
One .NET database developer who sent me an e-mail this week may be a
good candidate to take Microsoft up on its offer. The customer, who runs
applications on Oracle 10g running on Windows, decided to migrate to Oracle
11g, which last month was released for Linux servers. He exported a schema
that is used for a Web site he manages. While all looked well (the data
was there and the account was accessible), when it came to the Web server
login, the user names and passwords were invalid, though he could login
using SQL*Plus (Oracle’s command-line SQL and PL/SQL interface and
reporting tools that ships with Oracle databases). He believes the new
password security is causing the problem.
"Because of the sensitive downtime of the Web site, I had to start
the old 10g database to allow the account to log in," he writes.
He does want to get to the 11g database, but needs to solve this problem.
When I asked if he tried Oracle’s technical support, he said, yes
but to no avail. Anyone out there have any suggestions? Add your comment
to this blog or e-mail me at email@example.com.
