edited Dec 29, 2010 2:09PM in Oracle Provider for OLE DB

Do I only have to install the Oracle 11g Release 2 ODAC software to establish a connection beetwen SQL and Oracle?
Do I need to restart the SQL service as well?

I do not have the "OraOLEDB.Oracle" Provider in my SQL linked server list though i have installed the ODAC components (including Instant client)

I am just starting with Oracle so sorry for this basic questions. If anybody knows something please let me know!!
Doese anyone have a documentation for configurung SQL Server for that?

Thank you very much, Daniel

    I have just figured out I don't need a link Server.

    I would like to connect my SSIS Project with Oracle. What I have installed so far:

    * AttunitySSIS (Oracle Integration in SSIS Projects
    * ODAC Driver

    I dont see the Oracle ODBC drivers right now. Do you know what is wrong?
    What I did (dont know if this was clever)

    * uninstalled the Oracle Client 11g
    * removed the ODBC settings in the registry since I was ont able to remove them in an other way ( I had two entries, one for the 11g client and one for the ODAC and neither was working)

    Do I need to uninstall all and reboot the machine?
    Do you know how to make the ODBC driver run again?

    Does anybody have an idea? Thanks a lot,

    These people do not respond to any requests... I have looked for information regarding this and found nothing.

    did you figure out what you need to get your SSIS project working? I'm in the process of getting this set up and keep hitting walls. Do I need to set up a linked server?

    Although my MS stuff is 64 bit on a Win Server 2008 R2, my Oracle app runs on 10G R3.
