Is there a way to allow just (client) users from a certain domain to connect to the database?

Hi Brian,
I'm trying to use externally identified users on a Win2000 client against both a Win2000 and a HP-UX server. Is there any way to allow just (client) users from a certain domain to connect to the database by entering SQLPLUS /@tns_string?


Not to my knowledge. External OS authentication is meant to identify those users who have authenticated to the server where the database resides. It is not meant to identify those users who have authenticated on other platforms.

What you may want to investigate is the Oracle Connection Manager. Supposedly, you can authenticate to this central server and then connect to all the databases you are authorized on. I've never used Connection Manager myself, but it sounds likes it fits your bill!
