Configuring Oracle SQL Connector for HDFS for Oracle Database systems on IBM AIX (Doc ID 2152000.1)

Last updated on MAY 18, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle SQL Connector for Hadoop Distributed File System - Version 3.0 to 3.4.0 [Release 3.0 to 3.4]
IBM AIX on POWER Systems (64-bit)


Oracle Big Data Connectors are supported for use with Oracle Database systems on IBM AIX and this note points out two install and configuration points when using Oracle SQL Connector for HDFS (OSCH) with a database on AIX. 

1. Support for Hadoop Client

2. Clock skew when Kerberos enabled

When the Apache Hadoop cluster has Kerberos enabled, a clock skew problem can occur when attempting to use OSCH from a database running on IBM AIX.

All other Oracle Big Data Connectors need no configuration on the database system, and have no dependency on a Hadoop client on the database system.
