With the management agent for Oracle Database, you can synchronize with Oracle10g Database.

  • Oracle10g Database

Management agent type

This is a call-based management agent.


The schema is generated based on the source database table definition. When you refresh the schema for this management agent, the connected data source schema is rediscovered, the current management agent schema is updated, and then Management Agent Designer starts. In Management Agent Designer, you can correct any inconsistencies introduced by the updated schema, such as deleted object types or deleted attributes.


  • Before creating a management agent for Oracle Database, you must install the Oracle client on the server running Microsoft® Forefront Identity Manager (FIM) 2010.

  • The Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 service account must have Full Control permissions to the root Oracle folder, for example C:\Oracle, and its subfolders. Use the folder properties to grant the Microsoft Forefront Identity Manager 2010 service account Full Control permission to the folder and its subfolders and files. Restart the FIM Synchronization Service in order for the new permissions to take effect.

  • By default, this management agent is run in the same process as the FIM Synchronization Service. However, it is recommended that you run this management agent in its own process to prevent a crash on the connected data source's client software from negatively affecting the FIM Synchronization Service. You can change this setting using the Run this management agent in a separate process option in Management Agent Designer. For more information, see Run a Management Agent in a Separate Process.

  • To support tables containing BLOB, CLOB, NLOB, or BFILE columns, the management agent for Oracle Database uses the Oracle OLEDB provider, instead of the Microsoft OLEDB provider.

  • One object type is created in the connector space for each table or view.

  • This management agent supports password management. For more information, see See Also.
