Re: CPU April 2005 patching madness
The resolution to this problem was to unset ORACLE_HOME
in the system variables and bounce the server.
I know that ORACLE_HOME is not required or recommended on Windows
servers, but I have never encountered a problem with it before, even on
multi-homed Oracle boxes.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. A couple of you thought it might
be the ORACLE_HOME system variable; nice call.
