I use the TNS_ADMIN environment variable and the tnsnames files get pushed out to the clients and servers on a daily basis. If the network file server is down, no big deal unless they require the lastest modification which is unlikely.

Or, as we do, put the tnsnames on the network and have all the clients point to it in their windows environment by setting TNS_ADMIN. Then there is only one file to replace (not counting other servers).

Hello everybody:

Can anyone point me to a document/article/book explaining how to use OID to
resolve service names instead of tnsnames.ora?

thank you
