Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle ODBC Driver - Version: 10.1.0.2.0 and later   [Release: and later ]
Generic Windows

Symptoms

The ServiceName field in ODBC DSN setup dialogue restricts the field to 44 characters, which can prevent the use of an Instant Client form of the connect string for longer domain/service_name combinations.

For example:
     //mylonghostname.mylongdomain.com:1521/mylongservicename
