Oracle 9i Client
Posted August 13, 2003

Installing Oracle 9i client software on Windows 2000, connecting to a database called planb, which is running on a FreeBSD 5.1 machine called bsd5...

  • "Service name" is bsd5.cis2.selkirk.bc.ca.
  • "Host name" is bsd5.cis2.selkirk.bc.ca.
  • "SID" is planb.cis2.selkirk.bc.ca.

Choose the "runtime" package and everything works fine.

Choose the "administrator" package and you get an error message about Microsoft Transaction Services (omtsrv.exe or something like that). Close the Windows error box, then click "Ignore" on the oracle installer error box.

When you restart your machine, you'll get that MTS error message again. To get rid of it:

  • Open Start / Programs / Oracle Installation Products / Universal Installer.
  • Click "Deinstall products."
  • Expand "OraHome92" (or whatever your home is called).
  • Expand "Oracle9i Client 9.2.0.1.0".
  • Expand "Oracle Windows Interfaces".
  • Select "Microsoft Transaction Services".
  • Click "Remove..."

Reconfiguring the client for planb

  • Start / Programs / Oracle - OraHome92 - Configuration and Migration Tools / Net Configuration Assistant
  • Local Net Service Name configuration / Next
  • Reconfigure / Next
  • PLANB / Next
  • Oracle8i or later database or service
  • Service Name: planb.cis2.selkirk.bc.ca / Next
  • Protocol: TCP / Next
  • Host name: planb.cis2.selkirk.bc.ca / Next
  • Yes, test it / Next
  • If the test does not succeed because of invalid username/password, then you are probably doing fine.
  • Next
  • Net Service Name: planb.cis2.selkirk.bc.ca / Next
  • Configure another? No. / Next
  • Net service name Configuration Complete! / Next
  • Welcome. / Finish
