FAQ: ORACLE_HOME Selector in 10g

02/03/05 | by Clarise | Categories: Databases

This blog is for those who are used to prior versions of Oracle on Windows and are just starting to use Oracle 10g in the Microsoft Windows platform. Yes, it is also for those who want to learn something new or those new to Oracle. &#59;D Why? Well, it answers one question I have frequently encountered: "Where is the 'Home Selector' Utility?"

The "Home Selector Utility" is a handy utility that enables one to easily change from one ORACLE_HOME to another. As Oracle users know, you cannot install some Oracle products in the same ORACLE_HOME.

In 10g, it has been moved to the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI). After you start the OUI, click on "Installed Products". Click on the "Environment" tab and there it is... Wondering why it is there? Sorry, that’s one FAQ, I don’t know the answer to. :roll:

There is also a small, free utility available that makes it a breeze to switch between multiple Oracle Homes.
