We've been doing this for 2 years with various combinations of OS, mostly Linux (RH 6.2 mainly, a little RH 7), but also Solaris and HP-UX. Once the machine your AOLserver is running on can see the database, you should be fine. A quick test of this: type tnsping your_SID at the OS prompt should give you back an OK. I presume you know the only difference in terms of your AOLserver setup is that you enter the SID in the DataSource parameter in your nsd.tcl, whereas you can leave it blank if AOLserver is installed on the same machine as a correctly configured Oracle database?
