You claim V10 & Oracle report V9.2
Why the disagreement?
Is TNSPING issued from remote client or DB Server itself.
When did it last work & what has changed?You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
The average person thinks he's above average!
For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
