I have a dual boot system on a Windows platform. The first OS is Windows 2000 Server and the second OS is Windows XP. I have installed the Oracle 9.2 database in Windows 2000 Server and it is working fine. I want to access the same database in Windows XP without installing Oracle -- can I access the database? Please help me out.
For you to be able to access your Oracle 9.2 database running from the Windows 2000 partition, it would have to be open and available, along with a listener. If you are using a dual boot partition, I'm assuming you can only boot from one partition at a time, so when you boot up the Windows XP operating system, you cannot access the Windows 2000 operating system which is where your database resides.
