I have set up a standby database under oracle and everything looked great except for a minor detail - the archived logfiles do not get copied to the standby server. When I look at the v$archive_dest view I see

      ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified 03-18-2009 10:47:32 pcrp01d
for dest_ID which correspond to my standby.

I have checked the tnsnames.ora on the primary side and it looks OK. tnsping finds the standby; I can
ping the host. I have tried bouncing the listener on the standby side; bouncind the standby DB itself
as well as primary db, but this error keep reapearring after 5 min pause. If tnsnames.ora is OK, what
else could be the issue?

thank you
