Regarding my last post, I worked through some nasty little bugs that were preventing me from reaching Oracle Internet Directory (OID) nirvana.

I couldn’t get replication working during the install due to this bug: 10.1.4 Install Replication Configuration Assistant Fails With * ERROR * Bootstrap is taking too long (metalink id: 392708.1). The problem? At work we name all of our instances with upper case letters. Upper case letters cause the replication configuration tool to fail.

Another problem was that the $ORACLE_HOME directory kept filling up with log file output. That was another bug: Note:469050.1

And now everything is cool!
