Depending on your business scenario, a regular geodatabase might not be enough to be used along with your ArcGIS. For example, in order to use some of Maximo Spatial's functionalities, a Feature Service must be configured in your published Map Service. To have a Feature Service configured, only a normal .gdb database will not be enough. You will have to install one of the supported enterprise databases (such as SQL Server, Oracle, et cetera) and configure it as a Data Store, which will have to be connected with your ArcGIS. Please notice that this document will only describe the process for Oracle databases.
1. Download (both can be found at Oracle's website):
<addressname> = (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS_LIST = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(Host = <hostname>)(Port = <port>)) ) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVICE_NAME = <service_name>) ) )?
14. Replace the tags (such as "<port>") for the values that match with the machine's info (e.g. "<hostname>" for "000.000.0.000"). You can name <addressname> however you like.
Done! Now you should be able to create your database connection in ArcMap without any issue.
