When I look at DBX-> Configuration -> settings -> Drivers .. All of them are marked X No for the Installed column including Oracle.

Any thoughts ?

Greetings @sdevireddy1,

Everything sounds right to me. Have you done this yet? The bounces should not be necessary, but I'm putting them there anyway.

  1. Bounce the instance
  2. Navigate to: "Splunk DB Connect > Configuration > Settings > Drivers > Reload"
  3. Bounce the instance

Cheers,
Jacob

Edit: I just noticed your drivers are in .tar format. Our working drivers are all in .jar format. Also try unzipping them.

Cheers,
Jacob

Thank you for the answer. That worked.

tar -xvf ojdbc8-full.tar gave the jar files.. but in a sub folder. I moved them to the drivers directory.
