Sorry, but this is just 100% wrong. I've set up Oracle on
many boxes and you
don't need any DNS at all to set up an oracle DB. In fact, I
tell our DBA's
to use IP addresses in their TNSNAMES.ORA files because I
don't want the DB
depending on DNS.
Let's see, I don't want to make my DBs dependent on DNS, so I use IP addrs.
Yet, I can't depend on IP addrs because my upstream might have to be
changed... damn, I shouldn't have depended on my scumbag DSL upstream, eh?
I believe we've been through this discussion before.
Gee, maybe I should have had a names based system after all? Either way, I
wind up having to rebuild Oracle boxen and application servers, every time
somebody farts. Just what in blue hell are we supposed to do?
Maybe you should get a clue, or hire someone who has one.
BTW, the last I checked SSL certs are usually names based. Pretty slack
