Hi all,

Here is my scenario:
I Set on my solaris OS and oracle 9i database os authenfication .
Os authentification works fine both from my windows XP client and solaris too.

Now I created oracle ODBC source and Try to connect to my Oracle database via MS ACCESS.

I got a connect prompt to supply account and password but I would like only os authentification.

I get error like this : ODBC-- call failed

OF course It works fine with "user and password. "

Is someone know the matter ?

thanks

You must not have defined a user name and password on yuor DSN and give empty strings for this parameters on connection and of course having an Oracle account associated to your Windows one.

Forget: your remote_os_authent parameter should be set to true.

Of course, this is the GREATEST security hole you can create.

Michel

I said that os_authentification works fine from my client windows XP while trying to connect to my oracle database.

The matter is about ODBC source.
Why ODBC source setting can't authentified by OS ?
