I am considering implementing Oracle Names Server, what briefly are the disadvantages when using this solution?
Also do many people use it?
Thanks in advance
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.
