Last updated on MAY 24, 2018
Applies to:Oracle Provider for OLE DB - Version 188.8.131.52 and later
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 184.108.40.206 and later
Oracle ODBC Driver - Version 220.127.116.11 and later
SQL*Plus - Version 18.104.22.168 and later
Oracle Net Services - Version 22.214.171.124 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
After applying 126.96.36.199 or 188.8.131.52 to an existing 184.108.40.206.0 installation, it may be noticed that
- establishment of a connection takes longer than before the patch, or
- errors such as ORA-12638 Credential Retrieval Failed occur during connection.
This behavior may affect all tools, such as SQLPlus, ODBC, ODP.NET, OLEDB, OCI, JDBC-OCI, etc.
The slow connection behavior may be much more noticeable if using LDAP for naming resolution.
This behavior is observed in higher versions like 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 as well
Application of 22.214.171.124 or 126.96.36.199 to existing 188.8.131.52 install.
Also on higher versions than 184.108.40.206.0.
