    Oracle client

    user5716448
      Hi,

      We have a windows server (2008 R2) which requires both 32 and 64 bit oracle client installs.

      Theory is 2 different accounts on this machine will run various 3rd party services - some require 32 bit, some 64 bit, each service will run under a different account on the server (e.g account32 will run the services requiring oracle 32 bit) and account64 will run the services requiring 64 bit.

      With regards the install, shoule we install oracle 32 bit client using account32 and login separately with account64 to install oracle 64 bit client?

      Oracle version 11.2.0.3

      Thanks

          Does not really matter. what matters is that the applications can access the require oracle clients executables and files. make sure the paths are properly set.
          On my laptop..I have two oracle client(32 and 64). just to encourage you

          But to be more safe: "install oracle 32 bit client using account32 and login separately with account64 to install oracle 64 bit client"

            Yes, this should work - just ensure that you use two separate ORACLE_BASE directories for the two client installs

              I would install as two separate OS users to ensure no cross-contamination.
