Failure to connect a 19c database with an old style OCI C program (Centos 7.6 x86_64)

I created a user "CAO/safirs" in 19c database.

I can access to this user with Sqlplus but not with a very simple old style C Ici program.

This same program can access to 12c database.

ret=orlon(&lda, &hda,"CAO",3,"safirs",6,flag);

It returns 0 (OK) when accessing to 11g, 12c Database, but 1017 when accessing 19c Database.

Thank you

    What Oracle versions are you using (to 4 significant digits)?

    Are you connecting on the database server or from a client machine?

    Are you trying to connect to the right instance, the one  where you actually created the user in 19.x.x.x?

    Are you connecting to the correct PDB in the 19.x.x.x database or are you trying to connect to the CDB?

    Are you using the correct service_name?

    There are many possible reasons your code is failing. It is very difficult to help diagnose when the code is non-visible and the configuration of db's is unknown etc.

    Oracle Client (Centos 64-bit 7.6 IP= release




        (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = = 1521))

        (CONNECT_DATA =

          (SERVER = DEDICATED)

          (SERVICE_NAME = orasid)



    Oracle Server (Centos 64-bit 7.6 IP= release

    I'm connecting from the client

    I'm connecting to the right Database on host

    In the client, I have :
    export ORACLE_SID=orasid

    export TWO_TASK=orasid

    My simple program is :

    #include <stdio.h>

    #include "oratypes.h"

    #if defined(SS_64BIT_SERVER) || defined(__64BIT__)

    #define CDA_SIZE 88


    # define CDA_SIZE 64

    ret=orlon(&lda, &hda,"CAO",-1,"safirs",-1,flag);

    printf("\nRetour orlon =%d=\n",ret);



    The result is:

    Retour orlon =-1017=
