Applies to:

Oracle Enterprise Governance, Risk, and Compliance Manager - Version 8.6.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The grcDbSid setting is used as both instance name and service name in different steps of the EGRCM installation.  This works in a non-RAC install where service and instance names match up.  Customer is using a RAC Database where instance name and service name do not match.

What should the grcDBSid be set to in a RAC environment?

Customer is installing EGRCM 8.0.1 and is using a RAC database.

When setting grcDbSid = grcdev11 in the $MW_ORA_HOME/grc/scripts/ file the install fails with the following error message:

When setting "grcDbSid=xxxx" in the $MW_ORA_HOME/grc/scripts/ file, then "grcDS" DataSource failed to work. (It gets set to "jdbc:oracle:thin:@xxxxx:xxxx:xxxxx").
