That's the same information I have from a TAR I filed. However, I'm
still unable to find any information on the technical aspects of exactly
how to install the damnable thing in an existing DB. See the
single-post thread "Migrating Oracle Names to 10g OID".

Subject: Re: Oracle 10g Internet Directory Licensing
I asked our Oracle reseller this very same question, and this was her
"Per Oracles latest price list dated 8/19/05 it states:
That for the Database (10G) this use is allowed...
"Restricted Use: Oracle Internet Directory for the purposes of storing
Oracle Database Service information."
So I guess that as long as you don't use any of the AS stuff (which you
to install to get OID), you don't need a license. Seems like a waste of
disk space to me.

Can someone here verify the licensing status of OID?
I've looked in the Oracle Store, OTN, googled, etc.
The confusion comes from the way it's now bundled.
OID in 9.x was bundled with the Oracle RDBMS.
That changed with 10g.
OID is now bundled with the app server, which is a separately licensed
So, is OID now a product that must be licensed separately, by
