    Question

    Hi,
    i have Oracle8i server on Unix and different kind of clients, some of them are client 7.3 (batch) on OpenVMS.
    I would like to migrate server to 9i, but i can't migrate client on OpenVMS.
    Has anyone come across any problems with this scenario?

    Hi,

    we would like to know if Oracle Client software 7.3 (procobol programs) can work with Oracle server 9i without problems.

    Thanks

    I've used the Oracle7, Oracle8i and Oracle9i OCI clients against the Oracle9i database with no problems.

    Your only limitation will be that you will not be able to use any of the new OCI functionality from these clients.

    You may wish to contact Oracle about the support implications of running a client in this manner. I would guess that it is not a supported configuration and may result in you getting a hard time if support is needed.

    Cheers
