fionbarr has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

use strict; use warnings; apologies if this is duplicate
use DBI; my $host = "yyy.xxx.com"; my $user = "user"; my $password = "password"; my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Oracle:host=$host;sid=orcl;port=7010", $user, $password, { RaiseError => 1, AutoCommit => 0 }) +;
I am getting the error:
TNS:listener does not currently know of SID in connect descriptor

    Have you consulted with your database administrator whether the sid=orcl is the correct SID to use?

    Most likely, you want to inspect your TNSNAMES.ORA to find out whether that SID is listed there.

    Have you looked at the ::Troubleshooting files in DBD::Oracle for your operating system(s)?

      do I have to install DBD::Oracle (windows 7)
        No, you don't have to install it, it's already installed. But yes, DBD::Oracle must be installed.
