After creating the Oracle MA using the Oracle 11G client, FIM indicates that it cannot see the 11g 64-bit installation of the administrator client. The existence of the client on the FIM Server can be tested by creating a UDL (Universal Data Link) file.

Creating a UDL file

  1. Create a new .txt file in a folder
  2. Navigate to said folder from a command prompt
  3. Change the file extension of the created .txt file to .UDL
  4. Double-click on the newly renamed file
  5. See if the Oracle provider is listed


To resolve the issue according to the provide Oracle article it is necessary to:

  1. Open an elevated command prompt
  2. Reregister oracledb11.dll
    1. Regsvr32 oracledb11.dll
