I need to create a linked server.. and I am not very clear about the configuration steps in the creation of a linked server. The objective here is to create link to an oracle db through sqlserver ssms

I am not sure what is the information i need to provide for the following columns. All i have right now is access to the oracle db. ie username and pwd.

these are the steps i am following to create a linked server

right click --> server objects-->create new linked server -->

entering the following information --

linked server : Linkedserver001 Server type : other datasource provider : Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle product name : Oracle

Data source........... what info should i provide

Provider String: --- what info should i provide here

Next tab: Under security
