Unable to fetch modified tnsnames.ora file

Unable to fetch modified tnsnames.ora file

Unable to fetch modified tnsnames.ora file


When I modify the tnsnames.ora file and restart the sql navigator . the new database names are not getting reflected in the logon.

can anyone tell me the solution to this?
I really need to fix this asap.


RE: Unable to fetch modified tnsnames.ora file

Do you have multiple tnsnames files on your computer?  Do you have multiple Oracle Homes?


A computer only does what you actually told it to do - not what you thought you told it to do.

RE: Unable to fetch modified tnsnames.ora file

Hi ,
The problem was solved.
This sometime occurs when you modify the tnsnames.ora file  for the first time after the we install the sql navigator.

We also need to modify the ORACLE_HOME to point to the correct location in the registry file if we have oracle client installed on your machine.
