    Tableau Desktop MAC - ORA-12154: TNS: could not resolve the connect identifier specified

    Luis Esturban



      I have a Mac with El Capitan and today I tried to connect Tableau Desktop to Oracle DB, but the desktop showed the next message 'Oracle database error 12154: ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified'.  I followed the instructions in the link:


      Setting an Oracle Connection to Use TNSNames.ora or LDAP.ora on a Mac | Tableau Software


      but in the step 9, the system variable declare -x TNS_ADMIN="/etc" does not exist.  I confirm the correct executions of the steps 1 to 8 and I'm administrator in the MAC


      Can you help me with some ideas?


      Thanks for your help
