Help! Im getting really confused!  Linux Oracle 9 to Windows 2000 MS SQL.

Please can someone explain the process and what needs doing.
I am trying to connect an oracle 9i database which is running on Linux Red Hat Enterprise 4, to a MS SQL database which is running on Windows Server 2000.
I have read the following document,p14_docid,p14_show_header,p14_show_help,p14_black_frame,p14_font:NOT,231458.1,1,1,1,helvetica
But I am confused as to where each configuration file sits.
I have downloaded oracle 9i for windows and installed the OTG and tg4msql on the windows 2000 server. On the windows 2000 server I have created the following files:
tnsnames.ora: =
(PORT=1521) )
(SID = tg4msql))
(ORACLE_HOME = D:\oracle9i)
(PROGRAM = extproc))
(SID_NAME = tg4msql)
(ORACLE_HOME = D:\oracle9i)
(PROGRAM = tg4msql)
Then on the Linux server I have the following tnsnames.ora:
(SID = tg4msql))
I then created a database link on the Linux Oracle server:
create database link tg4msql connect to "sa"
identified by "password" using 'tg4msql';
I then tried a:
select * from [email protected];
and get:
Ora-28545: error diagnosed by Net8 when connecting to an agent
Unable to retrieve text of NEWTORK/NCR message 12571
ORA-02063: preceeding 2 lines for TG4MSQL
I feel I have done everything I have read but its not very clear where everything has to be put or how it all ties together.
Any help would be useful!

well I don't see how your ODBC driver on linux is configured. You need one (ODBC driver on linux, it's not there by "default") You can buy one or use a free one
find it here
then once you set up ODBC and able to connec to your SQL SERVER from command line using iSQL or TSQL from linux then do all these steps you described and it should work.
I didn't have any problems setting it up, works like a charm

  • Oracle 8i vs Windows 2000 profesional

    Hi! Guys
    Need help please! I 'm trying to install Oracle 8i on windows 2000 and I keep getting the error "No top level NT products". I tried chnging the symcjit.dll to symcjit.old as sugested in other forums but I'm still not winning.

    Oracle8i is not certified on Windows XP Professional. The earliest Oracle DB release certified on Windows XP Professional is 9.0.1. To get more info on Oracle product certifications, checkout the certification matrix available on MetaLink. It's accessible from OTN home page -&gt; Get Support -&gt; Product certifications drop-down menu.

  • Installation of oracle 10g by window 2000 Server or Window XP professional

    Dear all
    Did you tried installatin of oracle 10g in Window 2000 Server and/or Window XP professional
    installation on which one will be more reliable and stable?
    As I am choosing which OS will be better as a Server
    please help
    Francis SZE

    I don't think XP professional would be recommended as server.
    would be better if you use 2000 Server or best if you use 2003 if you like windows environment

  • Installing Oracle 8i on WIndows 2000

    I have installed Oracle 8i on WIndows 2000, and I want it
    configured to work locally on one machine. I get it installed
    with no problem with the seeded database. When I try to log
    into SQL*Plus as anything, i.e. SYSTEM/MANAGER or SCOTT/TIGER or
    SYS/CHANGE_ON_INSTALL, it tries to connect through my modem. Is
    there a way to configure the tnsnames.ora so it doesn't try to
    go through a network?

    You probably have to navigate to inside the INSTALL folder. Sometimes the SETUP.EXEs on the root of the CD won't launch. Should be something like INSTALL\WIN32\setup.exe

    I am using an Oracle 8i database for the installation on the same machine. Can anyone help please?
    -Ashok Manian

    Thanks for the reply Rohini.
    The SYS password is change_on_install and SYSTEM password is manager. It still causes the same problem. The database I am using is an Oracle 8i database which is automatically created while installing Oracle 9iAS.
    I also tried to install Oracle Portal on an Oracle 9i Database on the same machine and this comes out with a different error. It tells me the SHARED_POOL_SIZE is less than 31457280 whereas as I checked through SQL*Plus its actually much more than that!
    Can you please help?

    Seems that 8.1.7 is not compatible with Windows 2000 Server Service Pack 2. The database worked just fine until I installed the SP2. After that I cannot connect to it. When I run sqlplus to connect I get this error:
    ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
    ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
    I don't know what to do, and I cannot find any more informaiton about SP2 and Oracle. Please share if you have any.

    Sorry, but my english is terrible.

  • Error while Installing Oracle 8i on windows 2000 box

    When trying to install the Oracle 8i software, I get the following error from the event log:
    The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( PctSpk ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. The following information is part of the event: PctSpk error: 1063, StartServiceCtrlDispatcher failed..
    If anyone have suggestions to solving my problems, please advise.
    Note: I've started all possible services that I could think of.

    Definitely 8i won't work with windows vista. 10gR2 ( was not certified to run against vista, Oracle had to release an specific for Windows Vista. Previous releases are Not supported at all and there are no plans to support them.
    If you are planning to use 8i on your Vista OS, it won't be possible, but you can create a Virtual Machine with a supported guest OS for 8i, Windows 2000 is certified for 8i, Windows XP is not supported for 8i, but I have been working with it for years without any issue (this is not a suggestion for production environments).

  • Insatlling Oracle 8i on Window 2000,Window me

    Can Oracle 8i be install on Window 2000 or window millenium( window me). I tried to install Oracle8i on Window me and got the following errors:
    There was a problem in accessing the staging area.Please make sure the specified values for 'source' and 'Destination' are valid.

    I hpe you are not trying to install Oracle 8i enterprise edition on Windows Me. Remember Windows Me is just a glorified senior brother of Windows 98 SE, and of course ORA 8i ED will NOT install in this environment for obvious reasons. However it will install on Windows 2000 PE and Adv. Server (both based on WinNT WS and Server respectively).
    My guess and suggestion is that you should try to install Oracle 8i Lite on Windows ME and trust the installation should go without any problem.

  • Developer 6i Installation with Oracle 8i on Windows 2000 Server

    Hi Folks,
         We are using Oracle 8i (8.1.7) with Developer 6i for the past 2-3 years. Oracle 8i is installed on Windows 2000 Server and the client machines have Developer 6i installed. Using the Net 8 Easy Configuration Utility, the clients and the server are linked perfectly and we have never experienced any major issue regarding the connectivity from the client’s sides.
         Now my question is that, is there any possibility that we can also install Developer 6i on the server, ‘cause we have tried this several times and every time after installing Developer 6i on the server, the Net 8 Easy Configuration Utility does not invokes and obviously we are unable to use any of the Developer 6i products and moreover after installing Developer the already installed 8i Database does not gets mounted and we are also unable to use the database.
         Are we missing some basic stuff here or do we need to run some patch for Windows 2000 Server?
         Another thing, all our forms and reports are residing on client’s hard disks; can we also have the option that the forms and reports should also reside on the server so that we can easily update our forms and reports definitions from the server side?

    Yeah, I installed both the products i.e, database and developer in separate directories.
