    Question DBlink Question... domians?

    I have just created a dblink between an 8i and 9i db. However, I have become slightly confused regarding domains...

    Db1
    Select * from global_name;
    _________________________________
    DB1.local

    db2
    select * from global_name;
    _________________________________
    db2

    I have set global_names = false on both databases but to get the db link working i had to reference db1 as db1.world...

    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    create database link db1.world connect to user1 identified by pass1 using 'DB1';
    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    why is this? I always thought turning the global_names=false meant you didn't have to do this...?

    Thanks in advance

    Kev

    Even though after making the global_names=false.When u create a database link it is appended with the default domain stored in the database at the time of its creation.That is even if u change the global_names this willn't have the effect on the default value means u can't make the global_names parameter as null.
