Adding a New Instance to Existing Oracle RAC Client

You can add a new instance to the existing RAC client. You must use SYS login as connect string to connect to the database. Make sure that the Connect String value does not include "/" when used with Use SQL Connect as RAC will have multiple nodes.

If you want to use a SCAN connect string for an instance, use connect string as: sys/sys@nodename:1521/service name of the database where, service name is the database name.

Example: sys/sys@devrac11gr2-1.commcell.com:1521/DEVRAC11.commcell.com

    1. Select the Oracle Wallet Auto Login check box.
    2. Enter the Oracle Service Name in the Connect String third box.

      Note: If you provide the user name and password, the software ignores the Oracle Wallet feature.
