Configuring the ADI client to connect to the database
This post outlines how to configure the ADI client software to connect to the database. It’s aimed at non-technical people and assumes that you have already configured the TNSNAMES.ora file.
Assumed TNSNAMES.ORA file settings
ADI database connection settings
To get to the settings displayed below, from the ADI toolbar click on the signon button. In the Signon screen, on the bottom left hand side of the screen you should then click on the Define Basis button and configure your connection.
The name and description you give to the database connection can be user defined. The GWYUID and FNDNAM settings are consistent for most databases that you connect to and lastly, the connect string should be the same as the SID contained in the TNSNAMES.ORA
