RE: user authentication without OID

Wow....ok, interesting timing here.....  

I was just reading the 10gR2 AS manual on identity management, and came across a section titled "Integrating with Windows User Provisioning" when your message landed in my mailbox.....;-) Really, the link is right here: eploy.htm#sthref114  

No, that doesn't help you, cause you're trying to do it without the AS suite, right?    

But, it got me thinking....CAN it be done without OID and Identity Management and the huge infrastructure (and licensing) that implies....?  

Then I found an Oracle whitepaper from 2004....a relevant quote is here:
Oracle 9i Database and Oracle Database 10g directly integrate with Active Directory through support of single sign-on and integrated user provisioning. These features facilitate integrated user provisioning. These features facilitate integrated Oracle database and Active Directory user access and administration, while maintaining enterprise-scale security. Because these database features integrate directly with Active Directory, they do not require Oracle Internet Directory."  

(Empahasis is mine.)  

The URL to the complete whitepaper is: ctory_TWP.pdf  

Hope that helps,

"Exception: Some dividends may be reported as qualified dividends but
are not qualified dividends. These include: * Dividends you received on any share of stock that you held for less than 61 days during the 121-day period that began 60 days before the ex-dividend date. The ex-dividend date is the first date following the declaration of a dividend on which the purchaser of a stock is not entitled to receive the next dividend payment. When counting the number of days you held the stock, include the day you disposed of the stock but not the day you acquired it. See the examples below. Also, when counting the number of days you held the stock, you cannot count certain days during which your risk of loss was diminished. See Pub. 550 for more details." --IRS, Form 1040-A Instruction Booklet, Line 9b: Qualified Dividends ________________________________ From: [] On Behalf Of Ruth Gramolini Sent: Tuesday, February 28, 2006 10:38 AM To: oracle-l Subject: user authentication without OID Win2K domain WinXP clients AIX5.2, Oracle 9i server Good morning all, We are looking for a solution which will allow us to let users authenticate their database connections using their Windows logon credentials and Active Directory. We do not use OAS therefore do not have OID. Apparently this is the only easy way to do this according to Oracle Support and searches thru Metalink. I was hoping that someone has an easy (read cheap) solution that we can adapt to our needs. Using Active Directory is not a must, but we do own it. The problem is that users have to change their login passwords in too many places, We have to be IRS security compliant so we cannot see the passwords when they forget them, and once in awhile they do forget.;-)) Thanks in advance, Ruth --
