This utility displays the property settings associated with an OpenEdge DataServer for Oracle configuration, and checks that the syntax and values are valid.
The ORACONFIG utility runs locally, on the machine on which the AdminServer is running. The utility does not run across the network.

-name DataServer-name
Specifies which existing OpenEdge DataServer for Oracle configuration to examine. The name must match the name of an existing OpenEdge DataServer for Oracle configuration defined in the specified properties file. If you do not specify a DataServer by name, the ORACONFIG utility analyzes all OpenEdge DataServer for Oracle configurations defined in the properties file specified by the -propfile parameter.
-propfile path-to-properties-file
Specifies a filename or pathname to a file that contains the property settings to be validated, for example If a filename or pathname is not specified, it defaults to the installation version of the file, such as:
*%DLC%\properties\ in Windows
*$DLC/properties/ on UNIX
Checks the syntax and values of property settings defined in the specified properties file.
Displays command-line help.


*The file stores all the configuration definitions for each instance of the NameServer, AppServer, DataServer, and WebSpeed Transaction Server products. Each configuration definition contains environment variables, registry entries if Windows, and property settings for each product instance. OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer and certain command-line utilities such as ORACONFIG use this file to store, validate, and manage the configurations for the products.
*The file is installed in the properties subdirectory of the OpenEdge installation directory. For example, $DLC/properties/ on UNIX, or %DLC%\properties\ in Windows.
*The file consists of a hierarchical structure of configuration entities, where parent entities provide configuration information that you can override or extend in each child entity. For more information about the file, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
