Symptoms

Getting "Provider cannot be found" error while trying to define Oracle based service source in Service Source Configuration Utility

Diagnosis

When trying to connect to Oracle for the Publisher service source in Service Source Configuration Utility, I get an error saying the Provider cannot be found, and may not be properly installed. I know Oracle is working since I have a GeoMedia geoworkspace displaying features from this Oracle database.

Solution

Under the Metadata Connection Details screen of the New Service Source Wizard, select ‘Microsoft’ as Provider instead of the default option ‘Oracle’.
