ORA-12545: TNS: name lookup failure (Oracle 8.1.6)
Posted on 2001-07-04
Connecting to an Oracle 8.1.6 database on HP-UX server.
I am able to tnsping the ORACLE_SID from the NT server MS-DOS command prompt. However, when I try to connect using e.g. SQL*Plus 3.3 I get the following error and cannot proceed:
ORA-12545: TNS: name lookup failure
The entry in the c:\orant\network\admin\tnsnames.ora file looks fine.
Can anyone help?
