ServiceNav has an embedded Oracle client. For successful monitoring of Oracle…
Configure the ServiceNav Box to communicate with the Oracle database. For this you either edit/ create a file tnsname.ora or connect to a directory with Oracle sqlnet.ora and ldap.ora (see your DBA).
The tnsname.ora file informs the Box ServiceNav how to access the Oracle database you want to monitor.
File rights: reading for all users (755): chmod + r tnsnames.ora.
Using ldap for Oracle allows you to bypass the tnsname.ora file; useful when there are many Oracle databases to monitor.
