I'm trying to connect to oracle databases (V11.1 and V11.2 which are running on windows servers) from Windows clients using oracle instant client V11.1
It appears that I need to eliminate NTS from the sqlnet.authentication_services=
line in sqlnet.ora for ODBC connections to work.
Is this usual, and why is this?
The problem is that I want to also run odbc connections out from the servers themselves. (for testing purposes)
If I eliminate NTS from the authentication services, then I can't run sqlplus using "/ as sysdba" locally.
Why would NTS need to be eliminated for ODBC connections to work.
