This chapter describes installation and migration requirements for the Microsoft Transaction Server and Oracle Database environment.
This chapter contains these topics:
You can install OraMTS by choosing the Custom installation type when you install Oracle Database.
This section describes the Oracle and non-Oracle products you must install for OraMTS. Additional installation requirements include:
Only one Oracle MTS Recovery Service exists on each computer.
For Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) cluster configurations (or any failover configuration), install Microsoft Transaction Server on the node running the Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC) component. This ensures that the Oracle MTS Recovery Service migrates with the client application during failover. You can configure this when scheduling recovery transactions.
A data access driver that uses Oracle Services for MTS, such as:
OO4O, Oracle ODBC Driver, ODP.NET, Oracle Provider for OLE DB, and OCI are only required if you are building or using components with which they are required.
Depending on the installation, you are prompted to enter the port number on which the Oracle MTS Recovery Service will listen for requests to resolve in-doubt transactions
