In your first code snippet, you are still using the uppercase SID. Try it lowercased!.

tnsping works with the identifier, which most often is not the same as the SID.

$ head -4 $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/tnsnames.ora oradb_btest = ( DESCRIPTION = ( ADDRESS_LIST = ( ADDRESS = ( HOST = oradb )( PORT = 1521 )( PROTOCOL = TCP ))) ( CONNECT_DATA = ( SERVICE_NAME = basetest )) ) $ tnsping oradb_btest TNS Ping Utility for HPUX: Version - Production on 13-MAY-2 +013 18:24:26 Copyright (c) 1997, 2007, Oracle.
