Any tree or subtree within the Domain Name System (DNS) namespace. Domain most commonly refers to a group of computers whose host names share a common suffix, the domain name.

For Oracle Files, a domain is a logical grouping of Oracle Files nodes and HTTP nodes, an Oracle Files Domain Controller, and an Oracle9i database instance that contains all Oracle Files data.

Domain Name System (DNS)

A system for naming computers and network services that is organized into a hierarchy of domains. DNS is used in TCP/IP networks to locate computers through user-friendly names. DNS resolves a friendly name into an IP address, which is understood by computers.

host name

The unique identity for each computer within a domain.

ias_admin password

The password used to administer any installation on the host where Oracle9iAS Infrastructure and Oracle Collaboration Suite are installed. This password is required for installing additional Oracle Collaboration Suite instances. If you are configuring Oracle Internet Directory, the default administrative user orcladmin, is assigned the same password as the ias_admin user by default. The orcladmin user is an Oracle Internet Directory super user.

instance name

Identifies the installation instance of Oracle9iAS Infrastructure and Oracle Collaboration Suite on a single host.


An Oracle Files node is a particular set of processes running on a host computer. One or more node processes can run on a host computer. An Oracle Files node is essentially the application software that comprises the product and the underlying processes, such as the Java VM (virtual machine), that support the software at runtime.
