When using Direct Connect on Solaris or Linux, ArcGIS Server does not connect successfully.
ArcGIS Server 9.2 is unable to direct connect to Oracle on Solaris. This is a limitation of 32-bit library availability on Solaris. This Article is for 9.1 and 9.0.1 versions.
This is a known issue in the ArcGIS Server installation; it applies the wrong name to a file that contains the direct connect resources.
Use the following procedure to work around this issue. Apply the normal procedure to enable direct connect between the ArcGIS Server Container and the database first.
SDEHOME=<ArcGIS Directory>;export SDEHOME
ORACLE_HOME=<Oracle Client Directory Location>;export ORACLE_HOME
ln -s ./bin lib
ls -al lib
