To Mike R:

Thank you for adding the update for 6.2/12c OEM plug-in.

Unfortunately, the sequencing of the post makes it appear that the post is describing the new 6.2/12c OEM plug-in, when in fact the post is describing the old OEM plugin for 10g/11g.

REQUEST: Please add a clear deliniation between the 6.2/12c update, and the remainder of the post. Indicate clearly that this post is describing the old OEM plugin for 10g/11g. Also, clearly indicate that the downloads at the bottom of the page are for the old OEM plugin.

Thank You,

KenW
