I am having problems with my standby and its driving me up the wall. I created the standby on Saturday, ready to go Live today. I created it from a cold backup. This was working fine, switched a few logfiles on the primary and these were applied on the standby. I had a hot backup run on the primary at 5.30 pm on the same day. Come in this morninga and the logs are not being applied to the standby. I get the following when I look at the trace file

kcrrfail: dest:2 err:12154 force:0
ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve service name
*** 2007-10-22 13:02:19.026
Error 12154 connecting to destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 standby host 'PRD01STBY'
Error 12154 attaching to destination LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_2 standby host 'PRD01STBY'
Heartbeat failed to connect to standby 'MCSPRD01STBY'. Error is 12154.

This is very baffling as nothing has changed, my tns is fine and so is the listener. I am running Oracle 9i on AIX 5. Could someone please help as its a live environment
