At my work, we have too databases, one for development and the second for production.  Both are oracle databases. I have no issues connecting to them in arcDesktop. I recently got a license to use ArcGIS Pro as we will  be converting soonish. However ArcGIS Pro will not connect to the databases we use. I keep getting the error message


"Failed to connect to the specified DBMS instance.

A database connection exception has occurred. Cannot connect to database because the database client software failed to load. Be sure the database client software is installed and configured correctly."


I'd really appreciate any help solving this.
