Hi,
You can add:
PRIMARY=(DESCRIPTION=(CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=primary))(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(HOST=mac.localdomain)(PORT=1521)))
to /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/network/admin/tnsnames.ora
Regards,
Franck.

The error you are getting means tnsping cannot locate an entry tot primary in the tnsnames.ora file.

Check  /u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/db_1/network/admin/tnsnames.ora for an entry for primary.

If it isn't there, add it.

You could but from your other question, netmgr isn't letting you.

From your other question as well:  If you aren't comfortable manually editing the tnsnames.ora file, try netca.
