    Does anyone know how to properly specified the destination name and physical destination name in the porperties page in GUI admin console? And how it would look like in the server.xml file?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Sha ,
    The exception you are getting is because you have specified
    the property name as "DestinationName" instead of "imqDestinationName".
    This is how you specify the destination name using the GUI console :
    1. Create a jms destination resource throught the admin
    2. Click the properties button to add imqDestination name.(property button is displyed after cliking on the jms destination resource)
    3. Add a property imqDestination, specify value say
    The SampleTopic name specified is the physical estination name
    1.To create a physical destination name , right click the Physical Destination node under jms->service
    2. Click new ,specify the Destination Name as
    After doing the above , you will find the following changes in your server.xml file -
    <jms-resource enabled="true" jndi-name="jms/topic" res-
    <property value="SampleTopic "
    Hope this helps.Get back in case of any issues.

  • OSX SQLPLUS error:ORA-12162:TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified

    Dear oracle community,
    just stepped today into oracle world.
    Installed OracleXE on my remote UBUNTU server.
    From the server, sqlplus works perfectly.
    From my client (followed this tutorial ), i can connect via the
    sqlplus connection string: #sqlplus hr/[email protected]/XE .
    But when i try just sqlplus and enter username/password later on, i get
    ORA-12162:TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified .
    My config:
    OS - MAC OS X LEOPARD 10.5.5
    #echo $ORACLE_SID
    #echo $ORACLE_HOME
    #echo $TNS_ADMIN
    # cat /opt/oracle/tns/tnsnames.ora
    XE =
    (SID = XE)
    Any ideas - is it that sqlplus doesn't locate my tnsnames.ora file, or, maybe, there's an error in it?
    thanks for any ideas, recipies, suggestions :)
    enjoy the day,

    If I understand you correctly you only give userid and password,but no connect string. That would be a LOCAL connection,which will not work,because you issue the command on the client,not the database server. For local connections you have to specify a value for ORACLE_SID. If you do that on your client (doesn't make sense , because you don't have a database here), you should see a message like 'Oracle not available'. If ORACLE_SID is not defined you get ORA-12162,which is a little misleading.

  • Please help ! "Oracle Reports Server CGI - Reports Server name is not specified."

    Hello Gurus,
    I have an html form that allows putting in a parameter. Upon
    submit the form, it'll pass a string URL with the parameter to a
    new browser.
    My url: http://localhost/servlet/oracle.reports.rwcgi.RWServlet?
    I also used keymap looks like this
    diary: report=Diary.rdf server=servername desformat=pdf
    destype=cache userid=id/[email protected] myoid=%1 %*
    But I get an Error: The requested URL was not found, or cannot
    be served at this time. Oracle Reports Server CGI - Reports
    Server name is not specified.
    However, if I move the cursor to the end of the same url (or put
    a space at the end) and hit Enter, then the report is
    displayed. I guess there must be something wrong with my
    configuration. Please help. I appreciated any inputs from you.
    Thanks in advance.

    I found the solution to my problem. It was nothing to do with
    the cgicmd.dat keymap file, but the html form itself. It's
    confused between the url arguments and form arguments from the
    submit button. So, what I did was open a new window with all
    arguments instead of using the submit function.

    "I have checked my tnsnames.ora file at the database system "
    when you start sqlplus ... is that on the same machine that is running the db, or some other machine? Remember .. (and I'm really feeling like a broken record on this one) <b><i>TNSNAMES.ORA IS USED BY THE <U>CLIENT</U> PROCESS.</i></b>
    Show us the contents of your listener.ora file -- from the server machine
    Show us the contents of your tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files -- from the client machine.

  • Net service name is incorrectly specified

    Please can anyone explain me why am I getting this error ?
    " ORA-12162: TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified "

    ORA-12162: TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified
    Cause:      The connect descriptor corresponding to the net service name in TNSNAMES.ORA or in the directory server (Oracle Internet Directory) is incorrectly specified.
    Action:      If using local naming make sure there are no syntax errors in the corresponding connect descriptor in the TNSNAMES.ORA file. If using directory naming check the information provided through the administration used for directory naming.

  • Database Service Name or Global Database Name with Oracle 10G, when Oracle

    I have an old installation of Oracle 9i (SID=ORCL) and now have installed Oracle 10G (SID=ORC2). I can get connection to Oracle 10G if i define it as an Oracle 8 compatible identification (ie I access to a SID, and don´t provide a Service Name.
    Now I want to install Oracle HTML DB, and succeeded to install the SQL-script that came with the download, but when I install Apache and HTML DB from the Oracle Companion CD I am asked to give the Database Service Name (in the Help it is explained as the Global Database Name).
    When i give the Net Service Name I get error messages (incomprehensible).
    When I look in Net Manager, the Net Service Name does not have a Service Name, but only points to a SID (ie ORC2).
    Where can I find the Database Service Name (or Global Database Name), OR define it if it is not defined??
    Thanks for your help,

    create a net service for oracle10g and provide the name of this service during HTML DB installation it is required for installation.

  • Fusion App Provisioning Wizard - DB Config - Service Name

    Dear all,
    I'm trying to create new Provisioning Plan for Fusion Apps, Linux. The Wizzard doesn't allow me to proceed with the Database Configuration (step 8 of 19):
    Our company domain contains character "-" in it's name, therefore Global Name of the database is in format ""
    Such Service Name is not allowed by the Provisioning Wizard.
    What can I do in such case?
    I'm surprised by such constraint... this kind of domain name is nothing unusuall, und other Oracle installers don't have any problem with such Service Name...
    Thanks for support

    I have just got to know, that DB_DOMAIN may be different from the network domain. I have changed the DB_DOMAIN to name without hyphen.

  • Oracle8i Start problem - TNS:Service Name Incorrect

    Hi Folks
    My installation of Oracle8i was working fine. I installed webDB today and that was worked fine too.
    But before shutting down the machine I forgot to shutdown the database.
    When I reboot and try to start the database as root thus: ./oracle8i start, I get the following error -
    ORA-12162 TNS:Service name is incorrectly specified.
    Looks like something is wrong with SID or TNSNAMES.
    Could somebody suggest a solution please.

    For information sake, if someone else comes across the same situation, here is the cause and solution:
    When webDB2.2 is installed it seems to make an entry in the /etc/oratab file for the service name that is provided during installation. Cosequently my 'oratab' file went from:
    Hence the problem when 'oratab' is invoked.
    I don't know if webDB is supposed to make this kind of a change.
    I replaced the '*' with 'ora8i' and everything works fine including webDB

  • Generic service 'Analysis Services (TEST1)' could not be brought online (with error '1060') during an attempt to open the service. Possible causes include: the service is either not installed or the specified service name is invalid.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    The error message is pretty straight forward, it's saying either the service isn't installed or it's not installed as the same service on that node. Did you install analysis services on the second node (from the error it seems like it isn't)?

  • ORA-12154 TNS Could not resolve the service name

    I am working on Oracle 9i(Release 2) windows version. I want to change the value of
    shared pool size, buffer size and others database parameter through "Enterprise Manager Console" but
    when i connect to sysdba mode message comes "ORA-12154 TNS Could not resolve the service name".
    How can I solve this problem?

    these problem are you getting from OEM?
    lsnrctl status
    lsnrctl services
    make sure database is running.. all the services running in services.msc
    check error code and start..
         TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor
    Cause:      The listener received a request to establish a connection to a database or other service. The connect descriptor received by the listener specified a service name for a service (usually a database service) that either has not yet dynamically registered with the listener or has not been statically configured for the listener. This may be a temporary condition such as after the listener has started, but before the database instance has registered with the listener.
    - Wait a moment and try to connect a second time.
    - Check which services are currently known by the listener by executing: lsnrctl services <listener name>
    - Check that the SERVICE_NAME parameter in the connect descriptor of the net service name used specifies a service known by the listener.
    - If an easy connect naming connect identifier was used, check that the service name specified is a service known by the listener.
    - Check for an event in the listener.log file.

  • What's the reason for this message, "A server with the specified host name could not be found" ? I'm using iPhone 4s, 16gB, iOS 7.0.4

    I get a pop-up message saying "A server with the specified host name could not be found", whenever I try to access any streaming websites/apps or even WhatApp over Wi-Fi and I cannot access the specific THING for that moment, and I've tried switching Wi-Fi On and Off both in my Phone and also in the Router. I got an internet connection and a Wi-Fi router just before two days, and it's happening since. I got the internet speed around 80kbps and i can easily stream YouTube videos except sometimes, I receive that annoying message. I can't even browse the internet in Safari, which says "No Internet Connection"(Even though the Wi-Fi is connected), and I can access it after somewhile (say 10 minutes, it'll be perfectly alright). I use iPhone 4s. And everything about the internet connection is totally fine in my Computer, but not in my iPhone, as I've explained the issues, above. If there are any technical settings that I should change/modify, either on my computer(Windows 7 OS) or in my iPhone(iOS 7.0.4), PLEASE let me know
    I hope I've provided enough information for the reader to understand my point. (I apologize for my verbal mistakes, if there are )

    Hello Paneesh,
    Thank you for the details of the issue you are experiencing with Wi-Fi on your iPhone 4s.  I recommend the following steps:
    Be sure you're in range of your Wi-Fi router (access point).
    Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi off and on. If your W-Fi setting is dimmed, follow these steps.
    Confirm that your Wi-Fi router and cable or DSL modem are connected to power, turned on, and connected to the Internet. If not, refer to your network administrator or Internet service provider (ISP) for assistance.
    Restart your iOS device.
    Tap Settings > Wi-Fi and locate the Wi-Fi network to which you're connected.
    Tap and Forget this Network.
    Try to connect to your desired Wi-Fi network.
    Note: You may need to enter your Wi-Fi password again if your network requires one.
    Turn your Wi-Fi router off and on2. If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
    Update your device to the latest version of software.
    Update your Wi-Fi router to the latest firmware2. For AirPort Base Stations, install updates using the AirPort Utility.
    If the issue is still unresolved Wi-Fi disconnects or signal strength is less than expected
    Move closer to the Wi-Fi router (access point).
    Check for sources of potential interference.
    Remove any case, stand, or other accessories from your iOS device and see if signal strength improves.
    Reset network settings by tapping Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings including
    previously connected Wi-Fi networks and passwords
    recently used Bluetooth accessories
    VPN and APN settings
