Yes I posted the wrong link.

Now I can't recall where I saw this info, and cannot find it.

Though SP4 on Win2k is supposed to cause some serious network latencies.

I will post the info if I come across it again.

The URL refers to an alert for NT 4.0, Patrice is talking about Windows 2000 (which is also the MS flavour I'm having problems on), am I being blind here but those are 2 different products? If there is a similar alert for Windows2000 I'd certainly like to hear about it.  

If anybody is interested in the original Failsafe issue then I can tell you that this morning Oracle have acknowledged it as being a bug (failsafe is looking for Oracle9 libraries!). Fix is "being worked on". T

You would be well advised to *not* install SP4.

It will destroy network performance.

Supposedly this can be corrected:

The latest service pack for Win2K is SP4.

Good question, it's an Oracle8i patchset not a Windows one.

Tim,   

Just curious - is Patchset 12 for Windows 2000, or for Oracle? Sorry if it's a dumb question, but I am lost in the context.   

thanks!

To anybody using Oracle8i and failsafe,   

After implementing 8.1.7.4 patchset 12 on my Windows 2000 adv server failsafe configuration failsafe (and MS Cluster administrator) stopped being able to control the Oracle service (it can stop it but not start it again - saying things like "file not found"!). All the due diligence exercises have been done and I am convinced the patching was no flawed on my part. I suspect a bug in the patch set and Oracle support are indicating that others may be having the same problem. My database runs fine but has had to be removed from failsafe.   

So two things:   

1 - if you are using failsafe and Oracle8i think very carefully before applying patch set 12
2 - if you have applied patch set 12 either successfully or unsuccessfully with failsafe I'd love to hear from you so I can either put pressure on Oracle for a fix or share some thoughts on what is going on.   

Many thanks
