Configuring Net Services with Oracle

by Agaba Philip

As an Oracle DBA, it’s very unlikely that your users will be connecting locally to the database server machine and network connections are the more typical approach. This course teaches you the basics of configuring an Oracle network.

What you'll learn

If the Listener is down, your users can’t reach the database. If your network client files are improperly configured, your applications won’t be able to find their data.

In this course, Configuring Net Services with Oracle, you'll learn the skills you need to avoid all the pitfalls of Oracle networking.

First, you’ll learn about Oracle’s client-server architecture, the Listener, and name resolution.

Next, you'll explore service registration, the dedicated server architecture, and the shared server architecture.
