ORA-24962: Connect String Could Not Be Parsed, Error = 303

since we moved to 19c Database last week we observe a lot of this ORA-24962 errors in the alert log, but we are shure, that our centralised tnsnames.ora is correct. I tried the solution in Metalink Doc ID 2245576.1, but it won't help.

I observed this:

Using with TNS_ADMIN setted the centralised tnsnames.ora and connecting with sqlplus, no alert log entry is generated. As well when using TOAD.

But when we use our application (it's a Opentext Team Developer 6.3 application) each connect generates the error. So I enabled via sqlnet.ora the clientside trace facility, but within the trace, the error is not reported.

Howdy, Stranger!
