Problem


When trying to connect to the ORACLE Server via DBTools.h++, I get the following error:
ORA-12154 Could not resolve service name


Cause


If you are on a UNIX platform, you can use the ORACLE utility oerr to find out exactly how to solve this problem. This error is usually generated by an invalid service name.

Service is a connection descriptor used since SQL*NET V2. It encapsulates the Oracle server name and database name. Misuse of the server name or/and database name will cause this problem.


Action


The service name should be used instead of the server name. Look in the file $(ORACLE_HOME)/network/admin/tnsnames.ora for the correct service names. Then use sqlplus to connect to the server before attempting to use DBTools.h++.
