Error while executing database link [message #66072] Sun, 04 November 2001 23:28 Go to next message

Hi there,

I have created a database link.

When I try and run a query using my link:

select count(*)from regions@test

I get the following message:

ORA-02085: database link TEST.WORLD connects to

I know I need to make sure the
names are the same. Which files do I need to edit in order to solve this

Many thanks

Hi Ajay,

Check the global_names parameter in init.ora
file. it should be false.

give the command in the first database

(logon as system/manager)

select * from global_name;

you get like oralce.world
then go to the second database

create datababase link oracle connect .....

after use the select query.
