We have a MS SQL DB server for Cricket DB .
The requirement is to Enable a Oracle Subscription for a sql server Publisher on our cricket DB, so that we can send live updates in real time.
I am facing an issue while configuring the subscription.
This is what I have tried:
1. Configured a sql server publication with articles
2. Tried to configure an Oracle subscriber to publication configured in step 1 but seems like the Data source Name is not being recognized by the sql server.
It does say the subscription is configured but it gives error while initializing the snapshot.
Any idea on what could be going wrong here?
Also, one issue here is, I think it looks for TNSNAMES.ORA file for the data source name that I provide. I have sql developer as the oracle client and I don’t connect using the TNS name.
In this case where do I need to place the TNSNAMES.ora file?
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
Also if you are aware of any alternate way to approach this it would be helpful. Please advise.
