    When I have multiple ORACLE_HOME directories on a single system,
    I keep all the tnsnames.ora files as identical copies. Then you don't
    have to worry about which entry should be in which file, because
    all lines are contained in all files.

    It is like giving chicken soup to a dead man.
    It can't hurt anything & just might make things better.
