Well, it’s a while since I’ve been in here. Things have been manically busy and even with best efforts I’ve only managed to read things recently – I would have posted but got totally carried away reading Martin Buckley’s ‘History of ZENworks’. That totally appealed to the geek inside
So, what’s happening in my world? ZAM mostly to be quite honest. We’re doing so much ZAM work at the moment (ZENworks Asset Management in case you didn’t know) for customers that I’m flat-out. It’s a cool product – REALLY does what it says on the spec sheet.
Have I learnt anything new? Well, errr… yes. Some people are going to say d’oh to this one but I want to impart anyway. My lesson learned is :
If you’re installing to an Oracle back-end make sure that you use the same ODBC drivers as the version of Oracle!
Might sound simple, but I spent a whole day working on the assumption that I did have the correct drivers before I found out that an Oracle 8 ODBC client doesn’t talk properly to a 10g database
I just hope I can save one person from this pain with my story…
