RE: 10g - ASM

Koivu, Lisa


Hi Mladen,=20

It doesn't work without the ffci.com anywhere. I prefer to keep that
out of the mix, it's just more typing and more mess.

I can't tnsping. Guess I should have checked this first.=20

Used TNSNAMES adapter to resolve the alias
Attempting to contact (DESCRIPTION =3D (ADDRESS_LIST =3D (ADDRESS =3D
(HOST =3D floex0cwdev01)(PORT =3D 1521))) (CONNECT_DATA =3D =
TNS-12533: TNS:illegal ADDRESS parameters

C:\Documents and Settings\lkoivu2>

Does the server need to have a static ip? This one doesn't.=20

As far as I can tell, tnsnames and listener are correct, the listener
reports +ASM as a service. Sqlnet.ora only has
authentication_services=3D(NTS) set.=20

This used to be so simple. WTF?

Lisa, it you should have the following configuration:
   (ADDRESS =3D3D (PROTOCOL =3D3D TCP)(HOST =3D3D floex0cwdev01)(PORT


Then, test the TNS descriptor locally (Make the files ~/.sqlnet.ora=20
and ~/.tnsnames.ora) using tnsping and sqlplus. When it works,
then you can put in the parameter local_listener. If you have domain
(NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN ) in sqlnet.ora , then it must be a part of the
tnsnames.ora descriptor name, or the things will not work. Welcome to=20
the Oracle*Net configuration nightmare.
