Connecting to Oracle Grid with DbFit

While there is a good deal of info on the DbFit website, there is little about connecting to Oracle databases. The examples given didn’t help us at all because we used two nodes in our grid, and we have to give both of them in our connection string (if one node doesn’t respond the test will use the other).

!|Connect|(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=node1.grid.domain.net)(PORT=1521))(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=node2.grid.domain.net)(PORT=1521)))(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=WEB1_DEFAULT_SERVICE)))| UserName | PassWord |

As you can see you can end up with a very long row in your table, but it does connect.
