When running the "CR" option in HDBSetup, getting error message: 28040 [CA Harvest SCM][ODBC 20101 driver]ORA-28040: No matching authentication protocol


Seems to be related to having differing versions of Oracle database and/or Oracle Client and/or ODBC software.

Here’s a link from the Oracle community that gives us a hint:


DBA updated the sqlnet.ora file on the Oracle server machine and added the following line:


This should allow older versions of the Oracle ODBC driver to connect to Oracle server.  After restarting the Oracle server the error message did not appear again.

Please help us improve!
