Oracle Client Deployment within a Large Corporate Environment Revisited

Steve Recsky, First4 Database Partners Inc.

Steve Recsky has been working with Oracle Database products for the past 25 years and with Microsoft SQL Server products for the past 11 years. Steve held the position of Database Technical Specialist with DBCORP and CGI for 10 years and has owned and operated Complete DBA Inc. for the past 5 years. He co-founded First4 Database Partners Inc. with members of the original DBCORP team.

Steve has excelled in all areas of database management including training, development, backup & recovery, performance tuning, security, installation and configuration, object management and resource management. He has presented at numerous national, international and local database venues including CIPS, Oracle World and the Independent Oracle Users Group. He is also a former president of COUG.


A while back Steve presented on deploying multiple versions of the Oracle Client software stack onto 4000+ desktops in a corporate environment. This presentation will be a brief update on this project but also include a discussion around the latest twist on this deployment – Windows 7 desktop and Windows 2008 server.

Windows 7 and Windows 2008 propose some unique challenges around compatibility and the User Access Control security layer. Experiences with addressing these challenges at the various client sites will be shared.

As in the previous presentation, Oracle 7, 8i, 9iR2, 10gR2, 11gR2 and 11gR2 will be discussed.
