16.3.1 cannot create datasource

Installed 16.3.1 core server and all of the supporting frameworks, redist, clients, etc., etc.

16.3.1 gives an error when trying to create a new datasource:

'The type initializer for 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnectionStringBuilder' threw an exception.'

Any ideas?  The db target is the same as another server that works, so, this is related to this specific server.

Does 16.3.1 not support Oracle 11 any longer?

  • I have the implementation guide you've indicated.
    Following the instructions, the error 'The type initializer for 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnectionStringBuilder' threw an exception.' is given.

    What does this mean? How can this be resolved? Are there any successful installations anywhere of eB 16.3.1 connecting to Oracle?

    To provide some background - The server this is being installed on was running successfully for many months. Following the directions in the 16.3.1 implementation guide exactly, 15.6.1 was uninstalled and 16.3.1 was installed. The Oracle client has not changed or been modified in any way. The Oracle database has not been modified in any way. The only changes made to the server have been for the Bentley eB components as directed by the implementation guide.
