Some days ago a client reach me because he was facing this error when installing Oracle Client 126.96.36.199.0 on Windows 10:
Researching on topic found this.
Seems Oracle client 188.8.131.52 requires MSVC 2010 redistributable to proceed Oracle Net Configuration step.
After this requested client to install “Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package” on server. And issue solved! 🙂
The download of Package can be performed from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=5555
Hope it helps you!
See you next week!
To flush DNS cache? Easy like that:
1) Flush DNS – “Auto”
service nscd restart
2) Flush DNS – “Manual”
service nscd stop
service nscd start
1) Flush DNS
For quick referece: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/rhel-debian-ubuntu-flush-clear-dns-cache/
It’s usual to use DNS Aliases pointing to scanlistener. This way, we create an abstraction/layer bewteen clients/application and the cluster where database is. Some activities like tierization/consolidation and database moving between clusters (converting to Pluggable, etc), would be much more transparent.
Buuuut, if after a database migration, all the services online and listening, your client is stucking with:
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor
Remmember you are using DNS to make this layer. Have you tried to flush DNS Cache?
I faced this problem with a Windows Application. The solution:
Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.
All working fine after that. 🙂
