Migrating PC with Oracle TOAD installed.

I have a user with a Windows 7 Enterprise install with Oracle TOAD v11.x installed.
Has anyone ever migrated a PC from one domain to another with this software installed?
Looking to see if it's been done and what issues surrounding TOAD were experienced.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I think better to re-install Toad.

Or when previously doing setup for Toad, you should have allowed all users to access Toad.

A re-install shouldn't be necessary.

What connection method does Toad use?

If TNS, then you might need to change the tnsnames.ora and/or sqlnet.ora file on the PC to use the new domain.
If LDAP, then if the PC can see the LDAP server, you are probably good.
If Direct, then make the necessary changes based on the new domain name from the old domain name, and you should be good.

As long s the IP address/hostname of the database server is reachable from the new PC's domain, then there is a good chance nothing would need to change.

>>when previously doing setup for Toad, you should have allowed all users to access Toad.

That makes no sense.

Hello,  It turns out that the thsnnames.ora was already pointed to most resources that are already on the new domain that we're migrating these PC's and users too.  Turns out that another TOAD user had already been migrated - by someone who didn't know it was installed there! - and that user's TOAD continued to funtion properly.
