The MIT Oracle 11gR2 client is a silent installer that installs the Administrator client in a standard, Windows-based location and configures a connection to the MIT Oracle Internet Directory Server. The Oracle Internet Directory Server provides lookup information for many MIT databases, including the Data Warehouse. It allows BrioQuery to connect to the Data Warehouse.
