Hi all,

That may be true, but only for the RHEL case.
The two others didn't have the database, and still showed the same error.

Exactly. In the meanwhile I however (together with a collegua and a DBA) managed to get over it:

Besides the instantclient -basic and -devel, I now also installed -sqlplus (all 11.2).

And like 'a b' suggested, made an additional link, in my case (this time on CentOS) like this:
sudo ln -s /usr/include/oracle/11.2/client64 $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/public

Not sure which of the two was the solution (or if both were), but it did the trick.

Thanks for your help!

Ah well, acomplishing something is more rewarding if it took much effort.
So now I finaly have it working using only a records table (view) in 3.3.1, yay :)
But the very recent change in pdns 3.4's SQL schema for oracle broke the SOA lookup (and so the ANY lookup to) :(


Met vriendelijke groet,
With kind regards,
