Hi, anyone has succeeded in using Oracle as snort output plugin? I used
Mssql as snort output plugin successfully. But when i try to use Oracle, it
My software version and install enviroment are as follows:
Window Server 2003
note: i installed Oracle client and Snort on the same server, and i want to
log data to remote server which installed Oracle.
snort config file:
output database: log, Oracle, host=22.214.171.124 port=1521 dbname=net
user=klu password=abc sensor_name=svctag-9d8bk2x detail=Fast
# tnsnames.ora Network Configuration File:
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 126.96.36.199)(PORT = 1521))
(SERVICE_NAME = net)
i can connect Oracle with sql*plus, but when i run Snort, it failed to
connect Oracle with following messages:
database: compiled support for ( odbc oracle )
database: configured to use Oracle
database: host = 188.8.131.52
database: port = 1521
database: database name = net
database: user = klu
database: password is set
database: sensor name = svctag-9d8bk2x
database: detail level = Fast
database : ORACLE_HOME environment variable not set
database: hostname not required for Oracle, use dbname
database: dbname must be in tnsnames.ora
ERROR: database: OCIInitialize : Connection to database 'net' failed
Fatal Error, Quitting..
anyone can tell me where to set ORACLE_HOME environment in snort?
What does "hostname not required for Oracle, use dbname" and "dbname
must be in tnsnames.ora" mean ?
Thank you in advanced!
