    Description

      https://www.zabbix.com/integrations/oracle#oracle_odbc

      If try to use how it's described on the page, i.e. specify as single line:

      export ORACLE_HOME=/usr/lib/oracle/19.6/client64
      

      then the env variable will not be propagated to a running processes, which you can see by:

      strings /proc/`cat /var/run/zabbix/zabbix_server.pid`/environ
      

      But it put that in classic way with 2 lines:

      ORACLE_HOME=/usr/lib/oracle/19.6/client64
      export ORACLE_HOME
      

      it will work.

      Not sure why single line syntax was used. This issue should be checked and more robust approach selected for the doc.

      Tested on CentOS Stream release 8
