Q6750030: When monitoring my Oracle database, Network Monitor gives me the following error: 'Failed to load Oracle Client modules'.
To monitor Oracle with ActiveXperts Network Monitor, you need to have installed one of the following Oracle clients: Standard Oracle client; Oracle Instant Client. If you do not want to run Oracle applications on your monitoring server, but only want to check Oracle availability through ActiveXperts, it is recommended to install the Oracle Instant Client. It is a free product, and can be downloaded from the Oracle download area. For more information on monitoring Oracle using ActiveXperts...

Q6750033: I'm trying to monitor our Oracle database, but I can't figure out what the correct connection string is. Can you please assist?
There's no fixed connection string syntax for Oracle; the format of the connection string depends on the Oracle version, the authentication method and the type of security used. Please check the following web site for more information about Oracle connection strings: www.connectionstrings.com.

Q6750025: I can't get my ODBC check to work. What should I do?
First check your System DSN settings, and test them from the Control Panel. Be sure you are using the right DSN with Network Monitor. Or use ADO as an alternative; ADO works similar as ODBC but doesn't require DSN configuration.
