I need to install multiple versions of the Oracle client on an app server for an automation project. The platform I'm looking for in specific is Linux, 64 bit.
Oracle's network of websites are a maze and not helpful at all.
Here is what I've found:
126.96.36.199 : ??? Who knows, but luckily we have a copy on our repo servers at work.
I need to find the package for 188.8.131.52.
The reason I'm not just using a 12c client for everything (as much as I would like to) is because I can't. This annoying error greets you trying to use expdp a 184.108.40.206 database using the 12c client:
Export: Release 220.127.116.11.0 - Production on Tue Feb 24 14:14:39 2015
Copyright (c) 1982, 2014, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. UDE-00018: Data Pump client is incompatible with database version 18.104.22.168.0
So much for backwards compatibility.
P.S., the source database is a production 22.214.171.124 database that will not be upgraded for at least a year.
