    Question to connect Tableau to Oracle data source

    Annie Antony

      I have been recently introduced to Tableau and am hooked. I am using the trial version of Tableau Desktop v 6.0. I don’t have server installed.

      I am having problems connecting to any of Cisco’s Oracle databases.

      I get the following error: "Oracle Data base error 12154:ORA-12154 TNS Could not connect to the identifier specified. Unable to connect to the server. Check that the server is running and that you have access privileges to the requested data base"

      I have individual tnsnames.ora to modify. We have sqlnet.ora which points to the file with all connections on the server.

      Is there any solution to this issue? Would appreciate any help, since search on the tableau website wasn’t of much help.

      Any pointers welcome..
