That's possible, when did 9i come out?

Oh.  You didn't say anything about solaris in your other message.  If
they've been on Solaris for several years, and the install is crap on
that too, then something is wrong...

This stuff reminds me of how I have to treat NT4 servers.  Everything
has to be in sync, and if one goes out, everything is gone... :(  Not
that you don't have to keep things in sync on unix (like libc, etc.),
but it's not nearly as fragile as NT...
