I got frustrated in managing the TNSNAMES.ORA for more than 300+ users using varioous Oracle DB vesion 9i up to v11g
usually I send email for all of the users to manually copy and update the TNSNAMES.ora
so I wonder If Implementing this Oracle Internet Directory is the proper way to do it ? [http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/id-mgmt/overview/index-082035.html
1. is it free ?
2. what is the prerequisite and the limitations ?
3. can I use it for both Oracle Server in WIndows Server and Unix install ?
my understanding is that this OID is like DNS to the computer systems.
Any kind of comments and help would be greatly appreciated.
