tnsnames usage for entire site vrs. OID

I'm considering the use of tnsnames for simplicity of installation and ease of maintenance in my environment, rather than staying with OID. There are about 300 desktops, and 6 Oracle servers to maintain with oracle connections to the IIS webserver on the Microsoft platforms.
The IIS admin tells me when I change tnsnames, IIS has to be rebooted since it doesn't recognize the connection string changes in the tnsnames update. I've never seen this
type of problem before, does anyone have experience with using tnsnames for connection to the IIS server and if any parameters, connection pools, or config has to be done on
the IIS side to allow for changes to the tnsnames file?
Thanks in advance,
