Problem with No TNS Listener error [message #615357] Mon, 02 June 2014 16:33 Go to next message

I am an Oracle rookie that uses Oracle in support of a software analysis product and I have the following problem:

From SQLPLUS when I connect using the following string I connect successfully: sys/user/localhost:1523/oraclese as sysdba

When I change localhost to the server name as follows: sys/user/@server_name:1523/oraclese as sysdba I get the message ORA-12541 TNS no listener.

The only difference is the server name vs localhost.

What am I missing?

I really appreciate any help!

Your database listener is not listening on whatever address server_name resolves to. Incidentally, an underscore "_" character is not actually legal in a host name (though it may sometimes work).

The difference in behavior is because the line above does not contain any at sign ("@") while the line below does.

>When I change localhost to the server name as follows: sys/user/@server_name:1523/oraclese as sysdba I get the message ORA-12541 TNS no listener.

You do not need to use SQL*Net to access any local database.
