VMWare Fusion did such a sweet job of managing the Windows XP x64 installation, it lulled me into a false sense of security. It’s ashame VM Workstation doesn’t do the same. I dashed right off and installed Oracle Database 11g. After working through the security key steps for Firefox 3.0, I noticed to my chagrin that resolution was against the IP number, as you can see in the screen shot:

So, I went about changing things. The steps are here if you’re interested. The result is a correctly configured Oracle Enterprise Manager with a valid Windows Hostname.
