Are you using Amazon RDS instance or on-prem? 

Additionally, here are some articles you may not have seen:

https://documentation.commvault.com/2023e/expert/21222_troubleshooting_backup_oracle_rac_idataagent.html#rac0001-defining-oracle-rac-client-connections


https://documentation.commvault.com/2023e/expert/20938_configuring_oracle_rac_connect_string_with_physical_hostname_and_service_name.html


These outline supported connection methods.

Hi Chris,

thanks for the quick answer!
I think it’s on-prem.

But I don’t understand how the different kinds of login/registration belongs to this.
Fo me the point is that I can specify a connection address to an Oracle Database directly from a client application, without having to configure a tnsnames setting for the Instant Client.

In this description explained how to use the TNS connect syntax correctly or Scan connect syntax.
Maybe I just don’t understand your informations?
