Hi

we are using PV Wave 8.5 on an UNIX machine. i get the following error


DB_CONNECT: Error while trying to retrieve test for error ORA-12545

Execution halted at DATABASE_INIT <nm55.pro> (DB_CONNECT)

Called from NM55 <nm55.pro>
called from $MAIN$

how to solve this?

does PV Wave rely on tnsnames.ora file to connect to the database?

Thanks
Ashok

PV-WAVE does not use the tnsnames.ora file.
This file defines the database addresses and is used by Oracle.
Have you tried connecting to the Oracle outside of PV-WAVE using the same login?

This seems to be a problem with the database setup because the error code you are getting means:
ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist

Refer to this site on how to fix this error:

Hi

Thanks for your reply. I was not able to connect to the Oracle DB even outside PV wave using the same login. I changed the ORACLE_HOME variable to the correct path. Now it is working fine and i am able to run PV Wave without any issues.

Thanks for your help.
