    How do I configure TNS_ADMIN variable when using LDAP?

    Michel Roberge

      Hi all -


      I am not an ORACLE admin, so please forgive me if my question seems straightforward.


      But how does this work? From what I have seen, if we configure LDAP.ora, TNS Names is typically empty and system will rely on LDAP.ora. Does it mean that the TNS_ADMIN variables should point to the LDAP.ora file? Or should the TNSNames.ora file contains some reference to LDAP.ora? Or should this automagically work?


      I have followed all instructions there:




      And I still get error ORA-12154: TNS: could not resolve the connect identifier specified.


      I think it's something to do with that variable, but I can't figure it out.
