Information in this document applies to any platform.


Customer would like to request some best practice guidance on how to configure the Authentication_Services parameter in SQLNET.ora in Oracle 12c on Exadata. In Oracle 11g, this parameter was defaulted to "NONE", what is the recommendation value for Oracle 12c.

Some background - OGG replicat abended with 2015-10-15 10:50:03 ERROR OGG-00664 OCI Error during OCIServerAttach (status = 12641-ORA-12641: Authentication service failed to initialize). This happens when Authentication_Services=(KERBEROSS). If we change it to (NONE), replicat will not encounter error.
