ArcView on SGI does not make SQL connection to Oracle databases

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Tables from an Oracle database can not be added to ArcView running on SGI machines.


A problem referencing the yellow pages.

Solution or Workaround

  1. Add yourself to the /etc/passwd file.
  2. Navigate to $AVHOME/lib and make links like this:

    Code: /usr/lib/ /usr/llib/

    When the SQL connection is made, it will be redirected and use these libraries instead.
