Issue:
Tested the build of 18.1 that uses the Oracle ODBC driver instead of the Microsoft ODBC driver on an L1 server. These servers currently have Windows Server 2012 R2 and Oracle Client 12.2.0.1. The install completed successfully and it seems the MDM Server is running as expected. However, the API doesn’t seem the be working. The service starts but when I attempt to access the Admin Console I get an error saying that the API isn’t available. Attached is an event viewer log.
Environment:
MDM 18.1
Oracle 12.2.0.1
Resolution:
CA Engineering is investigating a solution to be delivered in an upcoming hot fix
