Pardon me if this is a dumb or insulting question, but did you try it with username/password (it or without _at_service_name)? Did the password contain '_at_'?

I know. It's a dumb question, but some time ago that happened here and the problem was that someone had a password with '_at_' in it.

Ok, this is really ticking me off. I created a user and when I try and connect via sqlplus I get ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve service name Yet I can connect with other users to the same instance from the same machine.

Why just this user? I checked roles, privs and everything else. I checked tnsnames file, sqlnet.ora file
