    Yes, I can connect using sqlplus as well as toad. I can also ping the DB machine and tnsping is successful. This makes me believe that everything on the oracle client is ok. I am also providing the "connect" code here that I am using:
    # DBI Initializations my $driver = 'Oracle'; my $hostname = 'host=oradev;sid=oradev;port=1521'; my $user = 'user'; my $password = 'password'; my $dsn = "DBI:$driver:$hostname"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn,$user,$password) or croak "Error $DBI::err +str connecting to $dsn\n";
    the last line is where it fails and gives me the error message!
      my $dsn = "DBI:$driver:oradev"; my $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn,$user,$password);
      make any difference?

      The code you currently have bypasses the tns alias, the code above uses the alias.


        Hi, I tried this format of the connection string, but it now gives this error:

        Error ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach) connecting to DBI:Oracle:ORADEV

        Any ideas? I am banging my head, wondering what environment variables etc might be missing!!!
