    Unanswered: Accessing Oracle Internet Directory on 10g Database

    I have Oracle 10g (10.1) running on my PC (Windows XP).

    I am not clear if I can access OID (Oracle Internet Directory) on the data base or not. My understanding is that Oracle uses its data base to implement the LDAP server, and that it should be available with the DB install, but I am not sure how to access it. Default LDAP port is 389, but I do not see anything
    running on that port.
    I use Oracle Directory Manager to access the OID. If I specify localhost:1521 as a OID server, it shows the server as active, but if I try to log in as sys/<password>, or if I try to browse the schema it takes forever.

    Can someone please explain me what are the steps (if possible) to access
    OID through Oracle Directory Manager, and what would be concrete
    entries for the user (dn) and for the server. Also please, let me know if I need to start any specific services for OID. Oracle 10g documentation is not very helpful on this subject.

    Thank you,
    Edmon Begoli

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    This manual refers to the components that are not there

    Thanks for the reply. I looked into this manual before. It really refers to the
    components that are available with Oracle 9.2i but that are not in
    10.1g. For instance, in the ORACLE_HOME/bin directory there
    is no oidmon utility any more - just oidca and oidprovtool.

    That is why I posted here - is there someone who is using Oracle 10.1g data base with OID. It seems that starting with 10.1g you have to have Oracle Application Server 10g installed in order to manage and access OID.

    Can someone please confirm or deny this.

    Thank you,
    Edmon

    AFAIK, starting with 9iAS R2 OID was bundled in this can of worms.
    OID is/was a core component of the Infrastructure support of 9iAS R2.
