TDM: Oracle RAC Connection from Portal as source/target

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


Portal version Oracle 12.

I don't think this is a product issue because I am getting the Oracle Error that indicates connection not getting to the Listener of the Oracle server. What I wanted to know is do I need any special JDBC Jar or Oracle connection parameters for RAC Server?


Release :

Component : CA Test Data Manager - TDM Web Portal





You can always review the supported Database connection from here:
Supported Data Sources (

We do support oracle 12C RAC:

by Default when making a connection to a RAC server from JDBC you should not need any additional; Connection properties.

You will need to confirm with your Oracle DBA that this particular instance does not need any extra parameters to make a connection.

I would start with simple tests from the TDM Portal server such as using telnet to the server name and port to see if you can make a connection.

If that works, install an oracle client on the TDM portal and test with things such as tnsping and sqlplus to make a connection.

Below is an example of JDBC connection strings.

In this case, it ended up being a IP/Ports and firewall issue.
