Last updated on APRIL 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version and later
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha


When making remote connections to Rdb V7.2, there is confusion as to what file should be used on the remote server.

Typically, the RDBSERVER process is used for remote connections, however, after installing Rdb 7.2 on an Itanium or Alpha, RDBSERVER is using USER ID: RDB$REMOTE even though the installation guide states it will be using RDB$REMOTE72.

In some instances this account (RDB$REMOTE) does not exist, nor does its login file.


New Rdb installation on Itanium or Alpha platforms
