How to clone Oracle client and Oracle ODBC set up to another machine?
Posted on 2009-02-18
I have one server A, it has Oracle 9 client and Oracle ODBC driver installed. Now I need to install the identical Oracle client and Oracle ODBC driver on another machine B. What is the best strategy? One easy way I could think of is:
Copy these two directories in machine A to machine B:
And export the registry setting in machine A to machine B (will this affect other registry settings in machine B?)
Is this a 100% correct solution? Is there anything missing here? Of course, I can find an Oracle 9i installation CD, but still a lot of work to do to copy registry settings, manually set up ODBC connections, etc. to machine B. I appreciate it if there is any easy and safe solution to just copy files from machine A to machine B.
