(In Net8 Administrator Guide asking HostName,Service Name,and Oracle 8i Global Name.What name i should give for those three things)
Please Guide me
Go find the tnsnames.ora file for the server/database you are trying to connect to. Copy that information into your local version of the file located in ORACLE_HOME/network (or net80)/admin.
Host name is your computer name (if database is on the local machine ), or ip address of the server where the database is physically residing, service is TCP IP ( usually ) and last input is SID of your database.
