Last updated on JULY 10, 2017

Applies to:

Advanced Networking Option - Version 12.1.0.1 to 12.1.0.2 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Enhancement 13401605 introduces a feature where a Kerberos connection
that would otherwise fail is able to fall back to user/password
authentication and successfully connect with the database.

When sqlnet.kerberos5_cc_name=[location] is set in sqlnet.ora fallback works
properly however if the cc location is not set the connection will fail.
