Hi Experts,

I'm able to connect through SQLPLUS, using tkeep/tiger@pepsi

Now created DB Link, in other DB, with the below command:

CREATE DATABASE LINK TKEEPDBLINK
   CONNECT TO TKEEP IDENTIFIED BY TIGER
   USING 'PEPSI';

When trying to do a
SELECT * from aug@TKEEPDBLINK  
gives the below error
ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve service name

Please do the needful.

Thanks.

pepsi host string should be in D:\oracle\ora92\network\admin\tnsnames.ora
and then
check/add  ORACLE_HOME environment variable to value "D:\oracle\ora92"
