Hi all

In ArcGIS 10.2  with I type n the command line:

sdemon -o info -I users -s <server number> -i <service number> it works,

but when I type the the same command using Oracle Direct Connection it fails

sdemon -o info -I users -s <server number> -i  sde:oracle11g:<instance>

I get the following error message:

Entry for SDE instance not found in services file, Unable to get users

This last syntax worked in ArcGIS 10.0

Which version of Oracle are you using? What client are you using (Administrator or Instant)? In case of Administrator client, see if the entry of the service in services file is there in client TNSNAMES.ORA file as well. If not copy it from Oracle home services file.

I hope that works.

  • What is the version of the sde geodatabase?
  • Are you able to list and disconnect connections from the "Geodatabase Administrator" window in ArcGIS Desktop uding the direct connect?
  • Are you able to connect via SQLPlus to that sde gdb using the same Oracle_netservice?
