[Quoted] [Quoted] I am using a central , shared tnsnames.ora with a multihome Oracle client (both 8.1.7 as 9.1.2) on Windows 2000.

I have set in both user environment as system environment the TNS_ADMIN variable directed to the directory of that shared tnsnames.ora (and also sqlnet.ora):
Dba studio of the 8.1.7 clinet recognizes and uses that central tnsnames.ora, but the OEM console (stand alone) says he uses that central tnsnames.ora, but in reality when i add a database to the tree, he makes a [Quoted] new tnsnames.ora with that entry in c:\oracle\ora92\network\admin and i cannot connect to that database, unless i do a manual copy of that entry to [Quoted] the central tnsnames.ora.

[Quoted] I looked in the registry for conflicting TNS_ADMIN enttires, but i did not find them.
