Circumstances do not rise to meet our expectation. Embrace what you actually get. Open your eyes. See things for what they really are Thereby sparing yourself the pain of false attachements.
Check to make sure the SERVICE_NAME specified in the connect descriptor is correct.
Ensure the database instance is running. If the instance not running, start it so that it can register with the listener. You can use the Listener Control utility SERVICES command to see what services are currently registered with the listener.
I can not find error 12535, make sure that you have put the correct error code.
Cause: The requested connection could not be completed within the timeout period specified by the CONNECT_TIMEOUT parameter in LISTENER.ORA. This error arises from the TNSLSNR.
Action: Either reconfigure CONNECT_TIMEOUT to be 0, which means wait indefinitely, or reconfigure CONNECT_TIMEOUT to be some higher value. Or, if the timeout is unacceptably long, turn on tracing for further information.
I already have connection_timeout_listner=0 in listner.ora and also my database service is also started. but i am not sure how to regester service under listner.ora.I think that is the problem.i also tryed lsnrctl utility but it's not showing any service which is in tnsname.ora file. i think service is missing in listner.ora so tell me how to register service in listner.ora ans is there any parameter do i have to set in init.ora file?
