Subject: Re: Oracle Client not passing Windows Domain portion of connect info ?

I had some major problems with my Oracle servers under AD, but that
was primarily due to a very poorly designed Active Directory. During
the install, Oracle would automatically grab the AD domain and append
that to the SID, and in our case, AD was the only thing that knew
about the AD domin name, so the normal IP/DNS things would never
resolve the SID.doamin to the actual machine. Removing the servers
from AD before the install solved my problems (and I haven't re-added
them to AD since).

My own PC's (and those of my users) though don't seem to having any
problems connecting to the servers, so it doesn't appear that the
clients add any AD credentials to the connect string.
