I have installed oracle on loopback adapter.
I have confusion regarding its use -
1. Will I be able to use all the features of oracle installed on loopback adapter, compared to those available to the one installed on domain server?
2. What is the actual difference in installing on loopback and installing on domain server?
3. When I do a 'tnsping' it shows loopback adapter's IP Address - 169.254.25.129 as HOST. Can I change the oracle's host to be other than loop back adapter - now, I mean after the installation?
4. Will this oracle database be available to other computers in the network, though it is installed on a machine's loopback adapter?
Pl help, I am planning to reinstall oracle on a domain server(windows XP) becos of all of these problems!!! I am getting a fixed IP Address from a router.
