Overview

Configuration Wizard ends with the following error:

Database Configuration Failed. Exception while configuring plugin Orion Core Services component Orion Database. Unable to determine the DbProviderFactory type for connection of type 'System.Data.SqICIient.SqIConnection'. Make sure that the ADO.NET provider is installed or registered in the application config.

Environment

NPM 11.5.1 and earlier

Cause 

Providers for Oracle have been added (probably by installing some 3rd party software).

Resolution

  1. Go the Orion server and create a backup of these configs:
    c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.*\Config\machine.config
    c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.*\Config\machine.config
  2. Rename machine.config.default to machine.config.
  3. Rerun the Configuration Wizard.
