Notes 8.5 Oracle Connection Problem

Hi

I have several agents that conect to an oracle database using LCConnections.  These agent work fine on a version 7 Notes client running on the client and they also run fine as scheduled agents on a recently upgraded 8.5.1 server.  They won't however run on an 8.5.1 client, always failing when trying to create the first LCConnection with an error of "Cannot find Connector 'oracle'".

Anyone have any ideas why they refuse to run on an 8.5.1 client (32-bit)?

Here is an example
SELECT * FROM
ALL_CONS_COLUMNS A
JOIN ALL_CONSTRAINTS C  
ON A.CONSTRAINT_NAME = C.CONSTRAINT_NAME
WHERE C.TABLE_NAME = <your table>
AND C.CONSTRAINT_TYPE = 'R'

ideas:
- is the 8.5.1 client a fresh install?
- can you copy the working 7 install to the other computer and upgrade it with 8.5.1?
- on the 8.5.1 client, can you open the db: help/lccon6.nsf (Title: Lotus Connector and Connectivity Guide), and test the connection using DCTEST? (see chapter 1)
- which version of Oracle are you using?  Using the help db mentioned above , can you verify that the requirements for a connection are met?

Hi,

Yes, it's a fresh install.  DCTEST works and connects fine to the DB and we run on Oracle 11.

It's wierd, it looks like it should work fine, but still fails with the above error...

The issue was the oracle client needed an update to a later version due to a change in the oracle db...
