DOes this mean that when you "tnsping" you don't see a message, as Kevin Lange pointed out earlier in this thread, of which parameter file tnsping used to resolve the name?
I'm pretty sure that from 9i onwards you get a display of the parameter file used by tnsping. You certainly do in 10g and 11g.

Once you have the sqlnet.ora file, you will most likely find the tnsnames.ora file it is using, and if not, you can look inside for more clues.
Alternatively, once you know the sqlnet.ora file, you can set a trace within it so that it will give you more information to go on.
