Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, that did not do the trick. I am now consistently getting the following error:
An error occurred while communicating with Oracle.
Bad Connection: Tableau could not connect to the data source.
Oracle database error 1034: ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
Unable to connect to the Oracle server "xx.xxx.xxx.xxx". Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested database.
Not sure why since I can still log in with my other tools.
Are you able to set up the ODBC data source connectivity in your system?
To check, just open the ODBC data source administrator>
System DNS>Add the db source which you wants to connect. If its already exists then check the configuration.
Test the connectivity if its successful then close the apps and restart your system and try.
Let us know if this help.
I had a ODBC connection established from another application. Tableau did recognize this connection and accepted it, however I was unable to see any tables when I tried to test out the worksheet. I put in a helpdesk request for the more formal connection process. I'll update this thread as I find out more. Thanks!
