    V$thread shows the instance name ,but not the global name . You can set instance name and global name as same . If you set globalname = true . You have to use the same name to connect to database via database links ..May be emaster's can explain this better than me ..

    Thanks Raghu,
    I have another instance , i excuted the following scripts...
    1) select name,value from v$parameter where name
    like 'global_names';

    2) select instance,status from v$thread;

    3) select * from global_name;

    results are :
    1. FALSE
    2. BLAH
    3. BLAH

    so what do u say now..... even without setting the gloabal_name as TRUE , i am able to see GLOBAL_NAME and INSTANCE name as same,

    But in some other instance i was not able to ???

    May be some GURU can explian this ???

    Thanks again,
    Madhu
