With Oracle 18c and even better in Oracle 19c, you can manage your Oracle database users in Active Directory. This was supposed to be a very nice new feature as many of us struggle with many thousand users spread over many versions, environments, platforms and even cloud or exadata. Is this going to help you? […]
To have the same users in multiple databases and no single sign on is quite a nightmare for password expiration, synchronisation and validation. You probably were discouraged by the long long route to kerberos, where the 126.96.36.199 bugs are fixed in 188.8.131.52, the 12.1 bugs are fixed in 12.2. And lot’s of system changes that […]

For this workshop, I use two servers and two usernames. Having the […]
I had a question in my mailbox today about using TNS resolution with an unsupported LDAP Server like Sun Java System Directory Server. Supported in 9i and above are only Microsoft Active Directory and Oracle Internet Directory. In 8i also Novell. So I have done this once with OVID. 1) download Oracle Virtual Directory 2) […]
Yesterday I posted about tnsnames in Sun Java System Direcotry Server. I have to solve one problem : sqlnet requires anonymous search capability on the ldap server. Which I cannot offer in production. So I created an Oracle Virtual Directory, which matches my anonymous request to an authenticated request to the Sun Directory.
In this post, I did show how easy it is to use OID to resolve your network service names. Apart OID, AD (Microsoft Active Directory) is also supported. However, I do not want to use such products, as my customer already have a Sun Java System Directory Server running. It is quite easy. Here are […]
