Be careful with 18.104.22.168. It cannot export from lower versions of Oracle. I didn't have any other problems, but this one is
a big one. The compatibility with the previous releases is broken. After closer inspection,
DBMS_EXPORT_EXTENSION package has 3 more units in 22.214.171.124 then in 126.96.36.199:
FUNCTION CHECK_MATCH_TEMPLATE RETURNS NUMBER(38)
FUNCTION FUNC_INDEX_DEFAULT RETURNS VARCHAR2
FUNCTION NULLTOCHR0 RETURNS VARCHAR2
The error I am getting is:
. exporting table DEF$_AQCALL 0 rows
EXP-00056: ORACLE error 904 encountered
ORA-00904: "SYS"."DBMS_EXPORT_EXTENSION"."FUNC_INDEX_DEFAULT": invalid identifier
This is yet another Oracle patchset to have QA done by customers. I have a TAR open
about this and support analysts are dragging their feet. I should forward this to Mr. Scott Adams.

Subject: 188.8.131.52 or 184.108.40.206 for AIX 5.3 (64 bit)
We are finally going to update our 220.127.116.11 installation and we are also going to upgrade AIX from 5.2 to 5.3. Does anyone have any insights as to which version 18.104.22.168 or 22.214.171.124 is better or worse.
I know there have been some problems with 126.96.36.199 but I am not familiary with problems specifie to AIX 5.3. Any insights will be welcome!
Thanks in advance,
