Oracle10g Client - SQLPLUS Error

There's a problem running SQLPLUS on MGR account in our Oracle10g client. However I don't encounter running the same command using ORACLE10G account.

Pls note though that running SQLPLUS under MGR using "...@beyield" results an error but running SQLPLUS under MGR using "...@beyield.company.com" is OK.

Pls see below for details.

Re: Oracle10g Client - SQLPLUS Error

By the way, OpenVMS version is 8.3

Re: Oracle10g Client - SQLPLUS Error

What do you have specified in sqlnet.ora for your default domain?
If nothing add
NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN = world

You can also try to connect @beyield.world because you specified beyield.world in your tnsnames.ora

Re: Oracle10g Client - SQLPLUS Error

Finally found the cause of the problem. Thanks Marc for leading me to examine sqlnet.ora.

As with tnsnames.ora, sqlnet.ora also needs conversion in OVMS 8.3.

$ CONVERT/FDL=SYS$INPUT x.x sqlnet.ora
RECORD
CARRIAGE_CONTROL carriage_return
FORMAT stream_LF
^Z

Re: Oracle10g Client - SQLPLUS Error

Thanks for following up with a resolution!
Much appreciated.

fwiw, I wrote a modest DCL script to check Oracle files line LISTENER.ORA, TNSNAMES, SQLNET...
It suggests a 1-line fix for those files that need it.


$! --- Check_fix_oracle_file.com ----
$if p1.eqs."" then goto help
$!p1 = f$elemenent(0,";",p1) + ";0"
$old = ""
$loop:
$ file = f$search(p1)
$ if file.eqs."" then exit
$ if file.eqs.old then exit
$ old = file
$ rat = f$file(file,"rat")
$ rfm = f$file(file,"rfm")
$ if rat .eqs. "CR" .and. rfm .eqs. "STMLF" then goto loop
$ name = f$pars(file,,,"NAME") + f$pars(file,,,"TYPE")
$ write sys$output name, ": RFM/RAT = ''rfm'/''rat'. Should be STMLF/CR."
$ write sys$output "Issue: $ CONVERT/FDL=""RECORD; FORMAT STREAM_LF;
CARRIAGE CARRIAGE"" ''name' ''name'"
$ goto loop
$help:
$type sys$input:

-- Please provide (wildcarded) file specification as parameter

$exit


Cheers,
Hein.
