The reason I heard that it wouldn't work was that Oracle writes directly to
the disk instead of using standard I/O operations.  There was one they said
seemed to work but just wasn't supported.  I think it might have been
Sybase.  It think it was in one of the Monday Morning updates if you are
really interested.

I know that it's a ridiculous question, but the Powers That Be want to know.
I checked the Midrange archives, the news group archives and the Oracle and
IBM web sites without much success.

We have some Oracle stuff running on Sun that we want to move over with the
minimum of fuss.  Hopefully, we'll then bundle the Oracle stuff with our DB2
stuff and offer a bigger and better whole...
