Connect String

Specifies the database connect string. You can change the database connect string by entering 1) database user ID, 2) password for the user ID @ 3) Oracle service name in the three spaces provided. The user ID must have SYSDBA privileges.

Alternatively, instead of the SELECT ANY TABLE privilege, you can create less powerful user IDs with the following object privileges:

  • SELECT ON "SYS"."V_$DATABASE"
  • SELECT ON "SYS"."V_$DATAFILE"
  • SELECT ON "SYS"."V_$SESSION"
  • SELECT ON "SYS"."DBA_TABLESPACES"
  • GRANT SELECT ON "SYS"."V_$ARCHIVE_DEST" TO "USER_NAME"

You can create a user ID with these privileges, or you can use the internal user ID.

TNS_ADMIN Folder

Identifies the path to the TNS Admin directory. If a value is not provided, a default value is created by appending the path \network\admin to the path of the $ORACLE_HOME directory, such as, if $ORACLE_HOME is \opt2\oracle, then TNS_ADMIN is \opt2\oracle\network\admin.

Click to establish or change the designated TNS_ADMIN directory.
