    Hi;
    The advanteges are the disadvantages too;

    Your ServiceNames are managed in one Point;
    So you need not to distibute the tnsnames.ora file any more.

    But when you add or change an entry this has effect on many clients, so be carefully.

    Please use 2 NamesServer so when one is down then the second can take the Job;

    If all are down then Oracle will still try tu use the local tnsnames.ora. This depends form the configuration.

    In my opinion i think not many are using nameservices.

    Orca
