    Hi everyone,
    Here's my problem:
    I have an Oracle database running on Unix and a set of Unix (Korn Shell) scripts communicating with the database. I need to port the database and the scripts to a Windows 2000 Server.

    I'm exploring the option to use Microsoft Services for Unix 3.5

    Can someone tell me if it's possible to make this system work ?
    Will I be able to use the same Unix scripts to communicate with the Oracle database once I move it to Windows ?
    Is it possible at all to establish such connectivity between the scripts running in the SFU environment and a database running in the Windows subsystem on the same machine?

    Thanks in advance to anyone who is willing to help me,
    Mila
