I am facing a confusing problem.
I can connect to a database from my local machine using Toad. When I use the same tns entry in a Solaris server, it always give me the following error, on tnsping.
"TNS-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist"
My local machine is a WinXP machine. The db server is setup in a VMWare virtual machine. It is an Oracle 9i db instance.
What can be the possible reason for this?
Me and the IT wing of our company has been breaking our heads on this for 2 days. Googling give me only this forum as a good result. Please help...
