    Question

    Hi everyone,

    How can I tell whether the Oracle is 8 or 8i by looking at the version #? I don't
    want to start sqlplus or svrmgrl to find out. I notice some of my oracle 8 has
    version starting 8.0.x and oracle 8i has version 8.1.x.x. Can I look at 8.0.x and
    consider as oracle 8 and 8.1.x as oracle 8i??

    Yes, Oracle 8i is another marketing name for Oracle database release 8.1.*. So generaly, Oracle8 = 8.0.*, Oracle8i = 8.1.*

    Hi,
    Oracle 8.0.x.x stands for Oracle 8 whereas Oracle 8.1.x.x stands for Oracle 8i.
    In the version number only the first 2 digits are important as they tell the Oracle version i.e. 8.0 for Oracle 8,8.1 for Oracle 8i

    In case of any help please be free to ask me at rohitsn@altavista.com
