Database Links and OS Authentication

Database Links and OS Authentication

Post by Jeff Hunte » Fri, 17 Apr 1998 04:00:00

Greetings all,

I know that I have done this in UNIX but can't seem to get it to work in
NT 4.0
using Oracle 8.0.3. I have two instances: OEM and DEV. They both have
public (anonymous) database links pointing to each other. I have users
each of those databases being authenticated at the OS level. (OPS$).
When I try to access the database link from any of the OPS$ accounts,
I get the following message:

/* -------------------- SNIP ----------------------------*/

C:\WINNT\system32>plus80 /

SQL> select user from dual;


ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01004: default username feature not supported; logon denied
ORA-02063: preceding line from DEV

/* -------------------- SNIP ----------------------------*/

Any suggestions?!?!?!?

Thanks in advance

1. Problems with database links on SUN OS.

Oracle 7.3.4 on Sun OS 5.6. I have a database link. SQLPlus works on the
client. But I can't get it to work on the server. This is my statement and
error messages. Anyone have any idea?

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-02248: invalid option for ALTER SESSION
ORA-02063: preceding line from database

Thank you
