And then you stopped and re-started the agent, I hope?

Well, it's not clear from your post whether you did or not, but you can't expect that file to suddenly acquire new content without stopping and starting your agent service. If you like, delete services.ora and *.q from O_H\network\agent before trying to re-start the agent.

The tnsnames has got nothing to do with it at all. But yes, the file is re-constructed every time the agent is re-started, by taking a fresh look at the listener.ora's SID_LIST section.
