Fatal NI Connect Error - what does it mean

Fatal NI Connect Error - what does it mean

Occasionally, Crystal will generate a sqlnet.txt file and place it in the same folder the report I'm working on originated from.  The latest one included the following text:

Fatal NI connect error 12560, connecting to:
 (DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=BEQ)(PROGRAM=oracle)(ARGV0=oracleORCL)(ARGS='(DESCRIPTION=(LOCAL=YES)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=beq)))'))(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=ORCL)(CID=(PROGRAM=C:\Program Files\Crystal Decisions\Crystal Reports 9\crw32.exe)(HOST=UWMF20436)(USER=jjgiemz))))

    TNS for 32-bit Windows: Version - Production
    Oracle Bequeath NT Protocol Adapter for 32-bit Windows: Version - Production
  Time: 18-MAY-2004 07:39:42
  Tracing not turned on.
  Tns error struct:
    nr err code: 0
    ns main err code: 12560
    TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error
    ns secondary err code: 0
    nt main err code: 530
    TNS-00530: Protocol adapter error
    nt secondary err code: 126
    nt OS err code: 0

Is there something wrong with Crystal or is there something I should be doing?  What is this message trying to tell me?
Thanks for the insight!


RE: Fatal NI Connect Error - what does it mean

Hi, That message is usually created when any failure to connect to an Oracle database happens ( ofted because the wrong tnsnames.ora alias was used.)
As long as you eventually get it to connect you can delete the error file.
