Release 1 (9.0.1) for Windows
Part Number A90164-01
This section describes new features of Oracle9i release 1 (9.0.1). Information on desupported and deprecated features is also included.
The following sections describe the new features in Oracle9i for Windows operating systems:
Oracle9i supports enhanced integration with Microsoft Transaction Services and Internet Information Services. The Public Key Infrastructure and Single Sign-On capabilities in Oracle9i have also been integrated with Windows 2000, Active Directory, and Microsoft Certificate Store.
Windows security supports Oracle Wallets in the registry, in Active Directory, and allows Oracle products to use Microsoft Certificate Store.
Synchronization between Active Directory and Oracle Internet Directory facilitates centralized scheduling and configuration of Oracle and third party meta-directory components.
The Oracle Database Configuration Assistant has been redesigned to include database definitions saved as templates. The templates can generate databases. Users can define new templates, modify existing templates, or use the ones Oracle provides. When creating a database with the Oracle Database Configuration Assistant, users can include Oracle's new Sample Schemas.
Administration of Oracle Internet Directory replication server has been improved with the addition of new replication queue management and reconciliation tools.
There are some differences between using Oracle9i on Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0.
CONNECT INTERNAL and
CONNECT INTERNAL/PASSWORD are not supported in Oracle9i. Instead, the following are the exact equivalents:
CONNECT / AS SYSDBA
Server Manager is not supported in Oracle9i. Use SQL*Plus instead. Most Server Manager scripts should work in a SQL*Plus environment, but some scripts may need to be modified.
