I changed my computer name/ip address after installing Oracle 8i on my Windows machine. Now I can not connect to the database. If I remember correctly, Oracle on Unix stores host info in the init.ora file. But I can't find init.ora on a Windows Oracle installation. How do I update my host info on so that I can connect to Oracle installed on a Windows machine?
Thanks for you help,
Gary Blomquist

hi,
i think you have to concentrate on these files too.
e.g.
d:\orant\network\admin\listener.ora
d:\orant\network\admin\tnsnames.ora

You can also use the Net8 Assistant that comes with 8i. It provides a nice GUI interface into the information in those files.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
