OGG Studion Can't Establish Remote Connection (Doc ID 2117358.1)

Last updated on MARCH 19, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle GoldenGate Studio - Version 12.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When trying to create a remote connection in GoldenGate Studio using service name and put something like

'jdbc:oracle:thin:@<HOST>:<PORT>/<SERVICE_NAME>' into URL, the following error is returned:




sql to the data store from the os. This connection works just fine.

Also  if we replace  'jdbc:oracle:thin:@<HOST>:<PORT>/<SERVICE_NAME>' --->  'jdbc:oracle:thin:@<HOST>:<PORT>:<SERVICE_NAME>' then it works.

But both options must work. Moreover 'jdbc:oracle:thin:@:@<HOST>:<PORT>/<SERVICE_NAME>' is the only possible URL for pluggable database.

See the observation in the logs. Where does it take 'localhost'? We have specified the real hostname '<HOST>' in the connection string but OGG Studio replaces it with 'localhost'.
