sqlnet.ora file in Oracle
The sqlnet.ora file is very important file for database server and client machines, because it includes the profile configuration file ( tracing options, encryption, route of connections, external naming parameters etc).
Database server can be configured with access control parameters using the sqlnet.ora file.
sqlnet.ora is located under $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin directory.
Sample sqlnet.ora file is as follows.
NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (LDAP, TNSNAMES, HOSTNAME) NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = ORACLE.COM TRACE_LEVEL_CLIENT = ON SQLNET.EXPIRE_TIME = 60 SQLNET.IDENTIX_FINGERPRINT_DATABASE = MSDB AUTOMATIC_IPC = ON SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (ALL) SQLNET.CRYPTO_CHECKSUM_CLIENT = ACCEPTED TNSPING.TRACE_DIRECTORY = /u01/app/diag/traces
You can create the sqlnet.ora file by running the Network Configuration Assistant (NETCA) tool.
My sqlnet.ora file is as follows.
[[email protected] ~]$ cd $ORACLE_HOME [[email protected] install]$ cd network/admin/ [[email protected] admin]$ [[email protected] admin]$ cat sqlnet.ora # sqlnet.ora Network Configuration File: /oradata/install/network/admin/sqlnet.ora # Generated by Oracle configuration tools. NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT) SQLNET.ALLOWED_LOGON_VERSION_SERVER=8 SQLNET.ALLOWED_LOGON_VERSION_CLIENT=8
