Can't connect to oracle pluggable database (18c)

Hi Guys,

Is there any specific trick to create a connection from ArcCatalog to a pluggable 18c database?

The database is installed on Windows Server 2019 and I am able to connect to it's $CDB container from ArcCatalog. SDE schema is created on a pluggable container and I can't login no matter the connection info I use:

- tns name (XEPDB1)

- full connection string (HOSTNAME:1521/XEPDB1)


Fail to connect to specified server. Do you want to continue?

Bad login user.


ArcCatalog is hosted on another Windows Server machine (same network).

I am able to login with SQLPlus from ArcCatalog machine, including to the pluggable container.

I have both 32/64bits clients.

I do not see anything in the log locations (e.g. C:\Users\%user_profile%\AppData\Local\Temp)

Thank you,
