Oraenv is great utility that helps to control environment and to avoid exact use of ORACLE_… variables in scripts. With invention of ORACLE_BASE it was enhanced to change the variable and to print the value in the output. More interesting that behaviour of oraenv in 22.214.171.124 has been changed

This post is about silent installation of one of the new Oracle 11g Rel.2 options called Oracle Restart.Read More >
