Hello experts,
I need your help, I have been experience a odd thing when I connect to my oracle database through the command prompt on the client side.
Yesterday, I deinstalled and reinstalled my oracle fat client installation on the client side;  when I tried to connect using sqlplus /nolog and then "connect / as sysdba" or using the "user/pass@service_name" I got an Ora-12560 TNS:protocol adapter error, but if I connect using "sqlplus user/pass@service_name" I am able to connect.

I will appreciate any ideas that help me to find out the problem.

Thank you

I can see where 'as sysdba' wouldn't work but there should be no difference using "user/pass@service_name" on the command line or with a CONNECT after '/nolog'.

Can you provide screen shots where one works and one doesn't (not the "as sysdba" one)?

If your new password has an '@' in it, you'll get this because it confuses the format of the user/pass@service looks like user/p@ss@service

there is no '@' on the password, I typed user/pass@service_name.

Thanks

If you look at examples 1 and 3 that you provided, where is the database name?

Example3, the command should be:

connect scott/pass@oraDB

I cannot see in example1 where you are specifying anything.  However the way you are using it in example1, I have only seen when connecting to a local database.  I believe that when it prompts for user, you should use:  scott/pass@oraDB, but I don't 100% remember how to do that one.

You were right, thank you johnstone, I forgot to set the oracle_sid and oracle_home before trying to connect.
