I am very new to oracle admin and would like to set up oracle on a WinXP Pro machine. The db will rarely be accessed as it will be used primarily to store research. I've been told that I can install oracle sas a data warehouse. Is there a resource that I can check out in order to gain step-by-step installation instructions for someone like me who has never installed oracle previously.
Are you using the trial version or the full version of Oracle.
If you happen to have a full paid version of Oracle, then the installation of Oracle would be detailed with the software.
If it is a trial version, downloaded off the net, use the following information
1. 32-bit Windows XP Professional Edition is supported by Oracle9i and Oracle9i Release 2 Enterprise Edition, Standard Edition, Personal Edition, and Client. 64-bit Windows XP will be supported by 64-bit Oracle9i Release 2. Oracle8i Release 3 Client provides limited support for Windows XP.
Since this will be a university research project, I have access to a paid version of Oracle. I believe it's called a concurrent user site license. However, I do not have cd's as we simply d/l off the oracle site. Is there an online version of the installation details that you mentioned?
Thanks for that. Can you explain the difference between Enterprise, Standard and Personal Edition Installations? Also, my software admin has given me our universities sid. On the screen where I enter the Global Database Name and the SID, what do I enter for the GDN since I have a SID.
