I'm trying to create a new Metadata DB Connection in Open Studio 5.1.1 DBType: Oracle RAC Db Version: Oracle 10 Server: DWMARTD2 String of Connection: DWMARTD2 When I click on the "Check" button, I got "Connection Failure. You must change the Database Settings." After I click on the "details", I got "impossible to initialize the connection". I have no problem to connect to the server in TOAD on the same machine. Please help! Thanks in advance. Shawn
Hi I tested it on v5.1.1 and it works. You must have some wrong settings, please see my screenshot. The server URL: jdbcracle:thin:@(description=(address=(protocol=tcp)(host=192.168.30.19)(port=1521))(connect_data=(service_name=talend))) change it to fit your database.

Thanks for your quick response, Shong. I still have a few questions on this one: 1) For the "Server field", do we always need such a long URL? If so, Talend may change the field label to Server URL instead of "Server". Otherwise, user may assume it's just a server name. 2) Do we need to specify the exact IP address for the "host"? Will Open Studio be able resolve a server name to IP address? 3) It seems that the "String of Connection" is always the same as "Server" field. Do we really need both fields here? Cheers!
Finally, I figured out the easiest way to find the info based on Shong's suggestion. I used "tnsping" to get the whole connection string. Then, you can get all the info you need for the connection setup. Cheers!
I am facing a weird problem. when I give the connection string as mentioned above and then check, it works fine. After that when i click the connection either in profiling or from MDM the service_name is being empty and the connection fails. I dont know why the service_name becomes empty once i come out of the connect screen. Can anyone help me? Thanks.
