How to use DB connect against secondary Oracle DB ?


Hi all,

this is the issue:

an existing BI 7.0 based on Oracle has to acquire data from an external Oracle database. We want to use DB connect functionality.

1st Q: are the existing components (DBSL and Oracle db-client) sufficient for interfacing to the secondary database?

2nd Q: would it be better practice to look at the external database as a completely separate one? which means to install separate DBSL and db-client for it.

Unfortunately neither online documentation nor SAP notes provide full clarification. Is there any experience in the field? all comments and contributions are warmly appreciated!

THX, Harry
