I gotta admit, I had problems this morning setting up a dblink to newly installed 11g XE beta using the same scripts that had worked perfectly a few months or years ago to two different 10g XE, or so I thought. All documented, but the errors can misdirect. I think the dash character should be allowed at least as a quotable character in a dblink definition, since it is completely reasonable for a host to have that in a name. Having to put in a domain name (even a bogus one) to avoid getting the local domain is just strange. The host is in the tnsnames, why should I have to?

And there are some way off blogs out there.
