I want to use oracle express edition with windows encrypted file system. I tried some possibilities like encrypting xe folder. But connection can not be established when efs is used. Is there a compatibility problem between oracle xe and windows efs? On Oracle's page, it is declared that oracle database is compatible with Windows EFS.
Thank you for help.
Welcome to the forums !
Pl post exact versions of "Oracle Express" and "Windows" - pl also post a link to the Oracle website that states that Oracle database is supported on Windows EFS. Pl note that XE does not include all of the capabilities that come with a full fledged Oracle database
Thanks for your attention.
Oracle XE version is 11 G and Windows version is Windows 7 SP1. The link for the support of Oracle for EFS is http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/windows/faq-100614.html#EFS.
Pl identify which version of Win 7 - 32-bit or 64-bit ? Home version or something else ?
The 11g XE install is only available for 32-bit version of Win 7 Professional or higher - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17781_01/install.112/e18803/toc.htm#BABHICJH. If you are installing on 64-bit version or Home version of Windows, then you are on your own. What is the reason for enabling EFS on this database ?
