SAS VA uses the same SAS software to connect to Oracle as other SAS components. That means you would need to have installed and licensed SAS/ACCESS to Oracle or SAS/ACCESS to ODBC.
Run the following code to confirm what SAS products you are licensed for: proc setinit noalias; run;
Please advise which of these products you have. If you have neither then you will not be able to connect to Oracle.

SAS/ACCESS to ODBC gives you the flexibility to use it for other databases apart from Oracle without getting another SAS/ACCESS product.
I'm not sure what you mean by "complete process with command".
If you want to know how to install or configure SAS/ACCESS to ODBC then here is a starting point for post-install steps: https://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/en/ikfdtnunxcg/66380/PDF/default/config.pdf
You can search further in the install documentation for the rest of the process.
If you want to know how to use SAS with Oracle then it is the same for all operating systems. Search on the SAS support site for SAS 9.4 ODBC documention. You can use both SQL, SAS DATA steps and procedures on Oracle via ODBC.

Here is a link to a relavent page in the VA User's Guide:
It also briefly describes the assumptions made to opening the connection to Oracle, which I will reiterate as:
1. The server has access the Oracle client installed
2. The server is licensed with SAS/ACCESS Interface to Oracle
For help with installation you should reference the guide for your specific OS to make sure the SAS/ACCESS interface is properly installed and configured.
