How come this is not a valid identifier

[oracle@term2 db_1]$ export $ORACLE_HOME=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1
bash: export: `/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1=/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1': not a valid identifier
[oracle@term2 db_1]$ export $ORACLE_HOME=u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1
bash: export: `/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1=u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1': not a valid identifier
[oracle@term2 db_1]$

Then try to unset this env variable before setting.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Just remove the $ before ORACLE_HOME on the "export" line. It should not be there.

OMG.... My bad :-( Just didn't see the "$". So, simon3270's solution does the trick...

I think you've accepted the wrong solution (unsetting will have no effect - removing the "$" is the correct fix)

I totally agree with simon3270, but I have no clue whether it's possible to "move credit points" to another expert?!?

Ah, I think I was supposed to "Request Attention" - I'll do that now (I seem to remember that's how the OP would do it).
