Frequently, I like to save Oracle workspaces in TOAD. Often I have many windows saved so I can recreate an environment. There is a fatal flaw with this process and I have yet to find a reasonable workaround. If one of the connections is down, or unavailable, TOAD stops loading connections at that point - no more windows. I am currently getting an ORA-12505 TNS error for one my connections and I am locked out of my environment for the remaining windows.
The only way I know to workaround this is to edit the TNSNAMES.ORA file and spoof the connection, but that is not an easy task for me as my work computer is locked down tight. I cannot freely edit the TNSNAMES.ORA file.
Any other solutions to this problem?
