I am trying to connect to the database server (sun solaris) from my machine (Win XP). When I use discover nodes and put the IP of the database server it discovers the node successfuly but the database is not there under the database tree.

What am I missing here?

DB version: Oracle 9.2.0

Thanks Smile

The other day it gave this output;
D:\tnsping uat

I tried today and it gave me this:

And there was no error message because the discovey ends successfully yet there's no database under the databases tree in OEM.

^Have you ever used Windows??!

Hehehe.. I'm kidding.. I may have done some minor changes to SQLNET.ORA, unfortunately I didn't take backup of it before I did the changes.

What to do?

I avoid Windoze like the plague which is why this message comes from an Ubuntu.

Revert the changes.
Alternatively, try renaming sqlnet.ora out of the way.

I seriously doubt that you've read the main topic.. that's why I'm going to copy and paste it BELOW:

I am trying to connect to the database server (sun solaris) from my machine (Win XP). When I use discover nodes and put the IP of the database server it discovers the node successfuly but the database is not there under the database tree.

What am I missing here?

DB version: Oracle 9.2.0


Now after trying tnsping which was "suggested" by MR. Gentlebabu, the problem still there. In other words, I'm still not able to discover the remote database.

Still confused?!!!

Just so we can be on the same page:
- I've modified listener.ora and added global_dbname variable with the name of the instance+domain name.
- I've deleted *.q, services.ora, snmp_ro.ora and snmp_rw.ora files and bounced the agent.
