Thanks for contacting us.

I understand that you are having authentication issues with SQL, correct?

- What is the version of the Oracle SQL you are trying to monitor? - What is the .NET version you are using from probe? https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/60543-which-net-version-does-prtg-require

Lastly, here's a really useful KB article about adding SQL sensors: https://kb.paessler.com/en/topic/70618-how-to-set-up-the-sql-v2-sensors-in-prtg-is-there-a-guide

Hope this helps.
