Post connecting to oracle 9.2 Reply with quote

Downloaded the DBAudit application for evaluation.

We have two different versions of Oracle running here, 8.1 and 9.2 .
I can connect to the 8.x version fine, but when connecting to the 9.2
the message returns that i must have my default home set to 9i.
The home default key value is OraHome92.

I have tried a few things (altering the registry settings, etc.) to no avail.

What am I missing?

Thanks in advance for the assistance

Please don't confuse Oracle server version with Oracle client version. When giving you a choice of drivers for connecion DB Audit wants you to pick the one that is compatible with your client version. So if you got v8 on the client and v9 on the server please pick 8. This does not affect any fnctionality. IT is just te graphical console will look for different connectivity methods and files.

Tried that too.... and i have both versions loaded

When connecting to the 9.2 with the 8i selected, the connection string is
missing the 'as sysdba' option, which means i can't connect as sys. i can
connect as another user with dba authority such as sysadm, but that doesn't
allow for the full access to objects owned by sys.

Admittedly, this will likely wind up on the a server console that has only one
version loaded, but if the reporting mechanism operates under the same scheme,
then it could be a potential issue as well.

We don't expect to be running both versions forever, but it is likely for the
next year or so.

Any other suggestions?

In this case I think all you need to do is to re-arrange values in the system PATH environment variable and make sure path to version 9 client is listed before 8. You can change it in My Computer properties (see Environment Variables options)

Thanks for the assist. I had tried that after the last post and it works
great.

I'm thinking we'll be purchasing this!

Thanks again for the support.

Regards,
Randy
