db_link

Hello,

I create a database link.

When I test it with the function of TOAD Context menu I get following result:


Link Name : “DB_LINK_TEST”

Connection : Successful

DB Name : TEST

DB Version : Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.3.0 - 64bit Production


whe I run SQL-Statement “select 1 from dual@DB_LINK_TEST” I get the error message “ORA-02019: Connection description for remote database not found.”

Why ?

There may be something after DB_LINK_TEST that is needed. Maybe it’s really DB_LINK_TEST. or soemthing.

Turn on spool SQL when you test the db link. Then you can see how Toad queries it, and you can use it the same way.

Did you use the DNS name in the description?

Whenever I have created a link, I have had to use the I.P. address, not the DNS name.

Toad spool (12.11 latest beta):

SELECT ‘Link Name : “DB_LINK_TEST”’ || chr(13) || chr(10) ||
‘Connection : Successful’|| chr(13) || chr(10) ||
'DB Name : ’ || n.GLOBAL_NAME || chr(13) || chr(10) ||
'DB Version : ’ || v.banner info
FROM v$version@“DB_LINK_TEST” v, GLOBAL_NAME@“DB_LINK_TEST” n
WHERE ROWNUM = 1;

Unless you have a sqlnet.ora which defines names.default_domain with the same domain value (and have SQL Developer configured to recognise that), you will need to fully-quality the link name when you use it.

so if default, try to add “WORLD” in a way to change DB_LINK_TEST to DB_LINK_TEST.WORLD?

What I would always test is a way:

select * from dual@DB_LINK_TEST

What information is in the host column if you run

select *

from all_db_links

for the link you are referring to?
