Information in this document applies to any platform.
You may find that a 3rd party program / application "Tenable Security Center" cannot seem to connect to your 12.2 Database through the SCAN Listener.
However, connections using SQL*Net and JDBC with the same credentials, connects perfectly.
* Source is "Tenable Security Center"
* Target is 12.2, Grid SCAN Listener.
This is the Tenable error :
(Default): AUDIT_ERROR_DB_CONNECTION: an error happened while connecting to the database
As an example, the connection data for Tenable is :
* the username (same as the SQL*Plus and JDBC one)
* password (same as the SQL*Plus and JDBC one)
* the SCAN Host <scan_hostname>, and the Port (1523), and
* the SID <instance_name>.
SQL*Plus examples that work:
sqlplus user/pwd@'(description = (address = (protocol = TCP)(Host = <scan_hostname>)(port = 1523))(connect_data = (server = dedicated)(service_name = <service_name>)))
sqlplus user/pwd@'(description = (address = (protocol = TCP)(Host = <scan_hostname>)(port = 1523))(connect_data = (server = dedicated)(sid =<instance_name>)))
