  Installing Oracle 9i on Mac OS X, Part 1

Does Oracle work on (and was this article written for) plain OS X or OS X Server?

They're obviously similar :-) but perhaps OS X Server has working support for shutting down services. Most OS X users (your grandmother!) want a machine to just turn off when they shut it down, which may be Apple's argument for not shutting things down cleanly on OS X. But server users have different requirements.

    When I was testing scripts for these articles I was hoping that Apple had done exactly what you are suggesting to make Mac OS X server behave differently. So I bought a copy of Mac OS X Server 10.2 (updated to 10.2.1) and found that it behaved exactly the same way - shutdown scripts still don't get executed.
    Of course this is a significant issue for a server operating system and I mentioned it to one of the product marketing managers for Mac OS X at Apple. I got positive confirmation that this is an important issue and that they would definately look into it.
    I have been at Oracle World this week and have not had a chance to test the 10.2.2 update to see if it works differently in regards to this issue.
