I'm getting a ORA-12557: TNS:protocol adapter not loadable when trying to login to any component of Designer e.g. RAU. I have a local db installed and wondering if this might have to do with the Microsoft Loopback Adapter that had to be installed for the 10g database.
I assume that this is a new install of Designer.
1. Find your tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files from your DB.
2. copy thoes 2 files to <IDS home>\network\admin directory.
3. now try to log on. ( assuming your DB is up and working).
If this does not work log a Service Request.
Thanks. I did copy those two files from my db \network\admin directory into the IDS\network\admin directory and still get the same error. I will log a SR, but the cause given in the error is the following: Can you shed some light on this cause?
The .msg message file 'c:\orcldb102\rdbms\mesg\oraus.msg' for product "RDBMS", utility "ORA" could not be found.
