Dear all,
I have installed on a Client with SO VISTA:
- ArcSDE 10.1 Command lines +SP1.
- ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 + sp1 +qi.
- oracle instant client:  instantclient-basiclite-win32-

On a Linux server I have an enterprice geodatabase (direct connection architecture) on linux/oracle11gr2

Now, when I execute sdemon by cmd:

sdemon -o status -i sde:oracle:<ipserver>/<sidname> -s<ipserver> -usde

the following error appear:

Cannot connect to database because the database client software failed to load.
Be sure the database client software is installed and configured correctly., Un
able to get instance configuration


If I connection ArcMAP to Oracle with the some parameter the connection work fine.

All ArcSDE command-line utilities are 64-bit.  You must have a 64-bit database client
for them to work with Direct Connect.
