SQLDeveloper working, SQLPlus does not work [message #615838] Mon, 09 June 2014 18:03 Go to next message

I am able to tnsping to my remote databases, I am able to SQLDeveloper connect to the remote databases without any problem. I am running Windows 7.

When I try SQLPlus command line, I record my user id and password and get a ORA-12560 TNS: Protocol Adapter error.

TNSNAMES.ORA file seems to work fine for TNSping and SQLDeveloper (below is an example remote database that I connect to).
QA.WORLD =
(DESCRIPTION =
(ADDRESS_LIST =
(ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = TLG0004.MYKFT.net)(PORT = 1521))
)
(CONNECT_DATA =
(SID = q153i0)
)
)

SQLNet.ORA file

NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = WORLD
NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (tnsnames, onames, host)

Path includes C:\oracle\product\11.2.0.4\client_1\bin
TNS_ADMIN=C:\oracle\product\11.2.0.4\client_1\network\admin

Any suggestions on what I should look at next? I saw people mention listener, but the Oracle database is not running on my computer, it is a remote server that I connect to.

Thanks in advance

Welcome to this forum!

I believe that default behavior for SQL Developer is to use JDBC Thin to connect to the database.
You can quickly & easily test this out by temporarily renaming tnsnames.ora file to a different name.
If SQL Developer can still successfully connect to the database, this proves it is NOT using tnsnames.ora to connect to DB.
ORA-12560 is a nasty catchall error on Windows.

Is OS of DB Server Windows or *NIX?

Database Server is on Linux. I cannot cut/paste from SQLPlus command line for some reason, but the error message is the nasty cathchall error.

Are you indicating I need to add AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS) in my SQLNet.ORA file?

I have a word document with the screen shots from my tnsping and from SQLPlus, but I do not have the ability to paste the document contents into this message. I use Windows snipping tool to capture the image (probably in HTML).

Windows allows you to copy and paste text from the command prompt, no need for images.
Just right click in the command window to see the options.

I see the Copy option from my CMD window, but it is greyed out, so I cannot copy/paste. I will type the results of my tnsping below.

To copy in cmd:
Right click
select mark
highlight the text you want to copy by holding down the left mouse button
Hit enter

That copies the text you want to the buffer, you can then paste it wherever.

Andy804, I think that your mistake is in not specifying the database name.

This is what you do:
