When trying to connect from SQL Developer, I get this error message:

Listener refused the connection with the following error:
ORA-12505, TNS:listener does not currently know of SID given in connect descriptor
The Connection descriptor used by the client was: localhost:1521:xe

Upon trying to resolve it, c:\>tnsping xe produces this message:
Used TNSNAMES adapter to resolve the alias
Attempting to contact (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = solarpc)
(PORT = 1521)) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVER = DEDICATED) (SERVICE_NAME = XE)))
OK (40 msec)

Having used MSSQL Server and MySQL for the past 10 years, I have just recently started using Oracle. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Is that localhost same with "solarpc" ?
I mean is that server running on your node(solarpc)?

post out put from your tnsnames.ora file

How many systems are involved?
If more than 1 PC exists, what s/w is installed on each PC involved?

Has SQL*NET ever worked?
If so, what changed.

Try the following:

lsnrctl stop
Now rename listener.ora to a new name so listener won't find it.
lsnrctl start
lsnrctl status
lsnrctl service

Try to make a new connection.
Try to make new connection using actual HOSTNAME; not localhost

Hello,

thanks a lot for your suggestion. I had the problem before, and it was solved after a listener restart, but not today - today nothing seemed to be helping.
After I followed the steps in your post though, the service is working properly again. In between I renamed the listener.ora and here are the results for listener status and service calls (nbeva is my localhost):

I'm sorry. I posted the logs, but forgot to ask for an explanation. How come the listener can function properly without the "listener.ora" file? I thought that a new one would somehow be generated, but it has not been...

Thanks

Without any listener.ora file, listener just wakes up & starts to listen on port 1521; just default behavior.
