I have a requirement to obtain the value of a environment variable to differentiate between test and production server and use that as an input for a compiled stored procedure. The client is a windows 2003 server from where i need to take the env variable. the server is a hp-ux server. I don't have access to oracle sys login.

Pls assist. I read some approach, but not sure if it suits my requirements.

what is the environment variable?

do you simply need to know the host server?

select host_name from v$instance

or

select sys_context('userenv','host') from dual
