It is not bad, except that your names are restricted to the first . in the name. In our case CORE.PROD.MMS.US got tied up with CORE.TEST.MMS.US. Type either into tnsping and you got the first one that answered. You have to change them to CORE_PROD_MMS_US. Phooey! Dick Goulet ________________________________ From:

See: I looked at that a few months ago. Now I can't recall if I got it to work or not. The problem I see with that is the inevitable issues with any TNS name resolution errors, and working with support. Jared --
