TNS-01100: TNS returned error number when attempting to start the listener
Cause: d by the fact that the TNSLSNR executable cannot be found in the place expected in your platform's ORACLE environment. Verify that the full pathname of the TNSLSNR executable as displayed by LSNRCTL is correct.
Action: If NS error code 12538 is also returned then the BEQ driver is not installed; call Oracle Worldwide Support as the BEQ driver should always be installed. If this is not the problem then the error is probably
TNS-01101: Could not find service name string
Cause: The ervice name could not be resolved by name-lookup.
Action: Verify that the listener name or service name specified to LSNRCTL has the correct name and address defined in LISTENER.ORA or in TNSNAMES.ORA.
TNS-01102: TNS application contacted was not the listener
Cause: Another TNS application such as the Interchange was listening at the address contacted. There may be another TNS application listening at the address contacted and the data returned is not in the appropriate format.
Action: Verify that the listener name or service name specified to LSNRCTL has the correct name and address defined in LISTENER.ORA or in TNSNAMES.ORA.
TNS-01103: Protocol specific component of the address is incorrectly specified
Cause: The ADDRESS used to contact the listener is not correctly specified. This error occurs because the address fails to specify the destination of the listener. The address is well formed (for example, there are no missing parentheses) but it is missing a protocol specific component. For example, this is the error returned when the HOST component is missing from a TCP/IP address string.
Action: Edit the ADDRESS in LISTENER.ORA to include the required protocol-specific keywords. For more information about the keywords required by different protocol adapters, see the Oracle operating system specific documentation for your platform.
TNS-01106: Listener using listener name string has already been started
Cause: Another listener is already listening on one of the ADDRESSes specified.
Action: Shutdown the previous listener specified by the listener name before starting this one.
TNS-01107: A valid trace level was not specified
Cause: Failed to specify a valid trace level for the LSNRCTL trace command.
Action: Specify one of OFF, USER, ADMIN, or SUPPORT. Type "LSNRCTL help trace" for more information or consult Chapter 2 of this manual for an introduction to the concepts of tracing.
TNS-01108: Listener password prompt failed
Cause: Password not entered via tty
Action: Enter the listener password on a tty device
TNS-01109: Listener password encryption failed
Cause: Possibly garbled password entered
Action: Re-enter the listener password, using valid ASCII characters. If problem persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01110: Mismatch - password unchanged
Cause: New password and reentered new password are different"
Action: Re-enter the listener password, make sure that New password and reentered new password are the same
TNS-01111: Log status can either be ON or OFF
Cause: Failed to specify a log status value for the LSNRCTL log_status command.
Action: Specify one of ON or OFF. Type "LSNRCTL help set log_status" for more information or consult Chapter 2 of this manual for an introduction to the concepts of logging.
TNS-01112: Plug and play can either be ON or OFF
Cause: Failed to specify a valid value for the LSNRCTL use_plugandplay command.
Action: Specify one of ON or OFF. Type "LSNRCTL help set use_plugandplay" for more information.
TNS-01113: save_config_on_stop can either be ON or OFF
Cause: Failed to specify a valid value for the LSNRCTL save_config_on_stop command.
Action: Specify one of ON or OFF. Type "LSNRCTL help set save_config_on_stop" for more information.
TNS-01114: LSNRCTL could not perform local OS authentication with the listener
Cause: LSNRCTL failed to obtain system resources (heap memory, or shared memory) needed to perform local OS authentication with the listener.
Action: Make sure that system resources like shared memory and heap memory are available for LSNRCTL tool to execute properly.
TNS-01115: OS error string creating shared memory segment of string bytes with key string
Cause: The shared memory segment could not be created as requested. For example, a segment with the provided key may already exist, or the size may be outside of system allowed range.
Action: Use the error code to determine the exact cause of the problem. In certain cases the problem may be resolved by adjusting the system-imposed limits such as the maximum number of allowed shared memory segments, or their maximum and minimum sizes. In other cases, resources need to be freed up first for the operation to succeed.
TNS-01116: Listener alias name given as connect identifier is too long
Cause: The listener alias name you were attempting to resolve was too long.
Action: The maximum length of a listener alias name is 255 bytes; this limit has been exceeded. Use a smaller listener alias name.
TNS-01150: The address of the specified listener name is incorrect
Cause: The address on which the listener attempted to listen contains a syntax error.
Action: For the listener name or service name specified to LSNRCTL, check that the address or connect descriptor is well-formed. You can find the listener name in LISTENER.ORA, or you can access the listener through the service name is TNSNAMES.ORA.
TNS-01151: Missing listener name, string, in LISTENER.ORA
Cause: The listener could not find the listener name specified.
Action: Make sure valid addresses on which to listen are specified for the listener name in LISTENER.ORA.
TNS-01152: All addresses specified for the listener name, string, failed
Cause: The listener failed to listen on any of the specified addresses.
Action: Make sure that another application is not listening on the addresses specified or check that the appropriate protocol adapters are installed. Turn on tracing and execute again for more information.
TNS-01153: Failed to process string: string
Cause: The string specified is not well-formed.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01154: SID detected in old format that is no longer supported
Cause: One of the SIDs was specified in an obsolete format.
Action: Check LISTENER.ORA for a line of the form: <sid> = (SID=(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)) OR <sid> = (SID_DESC=(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)) The above format is no longer supported and SID_LIST_<listener_name> format described in the Oracle9i Net Services Reference Guide should be used. For example, SID_LIST_LISTENER = (SID_LIST=(SID_DESC=(SID_NAME=<sid>)(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)))
TNS-01155: Incorrectly specified SID_LIST_string parameter in LISTENER.ORA
Cause: SID_LIST_<listener_name> in LISTENER.ORA has an error in it.
Action: Be sure this parameter is specified as described in the Oracle9i Net Services Reference Guide. For example, SID_LIST_LISTENER = (SID_LIST=(SID_DESC=(SID_NAME=<sid>)(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)))
TNS-01156: Missing or inappropriate PROTOCOL, TIMEOUT or POOL_SIZE parameter from PRESPAWN_DESC
Cause: PRESPAWN_DESC in each SID_DESC does not have required fields.
Action: Be sure the parameters required for PRESPAWN_DESC are specified in each SID_DESC. For example, SID_LIST_LISTENER = (SID_LIST=(SID_DESC=(SID_NAME=<sid>)(PRESPAWN_MAX=5)(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)(PRESPAWN_DESC=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(POOL_SIZE=10)(TIMEOUT=30)))) Add or correct these parameters in the LISTENER.ORA file
TNS-01157: Can only listen on number addresses - ignoring string
Cause: Too many addresses were given to listen on.
Action: Reduce the number of addresses to listen on and use another listener to listen on the remaining addresses.
TNS-01158: Internal connection limit reached, preventing dispatcher from connecting
Cause: The internal Oracle Net connection list is full. Too many dispatchers are connected to the listener; therefore, no more dispatchers are allowed to connect.
Action: For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01159: Internal connection limit has been reached; listener has shut down
Cause: The internal Oracle Net connection list is full. The listener is configured to use too many Oracle Net connections.
Action: Reduce the number of listen addresses or services connected to the listener. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01160: Trace level was not specified
Cause: Failed to specify a trace level for the trace command.
Action: Specify one of OFF, USER, ADMIN, or SUPPORT. Users should not see this error if LSNRCTL is being used.
TNS-01161: Spawn alias string was not found. Check listener parameter file
Cause: The alias specified to spawn a program was not found in LISTENER.ORA.
Action: This is not seen in normal use of Oracle Net.
TNS-01162: Syntax error in the address resolved from the spawn alias: string
Cause: The alias specified to spawn a program was not a valid NVstring.
Action: This is not seen in normal use of Oracle Net.
TNS-01163: Failed to spawn process: string
Cause: The process failed to start correctly.
Action: This is not seen in normal use of Oracle Net.
TNS-01164: No spawn alias sent to listener
Cause: The spawn command was issued without an alias.
Action: This is not seen in normal use of Oracle Net.
TNS-01165: Spawn alias has no program name set in it
Cause: The spawn alias in LISTENER.ORA is incorrectly specified.
Action: This is not seen in normal use of Oracle Net.
TNS-01167: The command string is not supported by the listener contacted
Cause: The listener does not recognize the command.
Action: This is caused when a newer version of LSNRCTL contacts an old listener. Upgrade listener if executing this command is important.
TNS-01168: Cannot allocate memory
Cause: Sufficient memory could not be allocated to perform the desired activity.
Action: Either free some resource for TNS, or add more memory to the machine. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation.
TNS-01169: The listener has not recognized the password
Cause: The listener has the password security mechanism enabled and requires the correct password to execute any command other than VERSION. The user attempted to issue one of the privileged administrative commands, but could not be successfully authenticated with the password provided.
Action: If an authorized user is attempting the command, then use the SET PASSWORD command at the LSNRCTL prompt with the listener password. If you do not know the password, then you are trying to execute an inappropriate command.
TNS-01170: Event detection broke for address: string
Cause: The event detection mechanism for the address specified returned an error.
Action: Future attempts to detect events on this address will fail. The listener will deallocate the listen address and connections will no long be accepted for this address. This error is not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01171: Event detection broke for dispatcher: string
Cause: The event detection mechanism for the dispatcher specified returned an error.
Action: Future attempts to detect events on this dispatcher will fail. The listener will deallocate the dispatcher and connections will no long be redirected to this dispatcher. This error is not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01172: Listener has shut down since all listen addresses have been deallocated
Cause: The event detection mechanism broke and caused all listen addresses to be removed.
Action: Error 1170 has occured and caused all the listen addresses to be deallocated. Since all the listen addresses have been removed, no more connections can be established to this listener so it shuts itself down. This error is not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01173: Missing or inappropriate PRESPAWN_MAX parameter from SID_DESC
Cause: PRESPAWN_MAX in each SID_DESC does not have required fields.
Action: Be sure the parameters required for PRESPAWN_DESC are specified in each SID_DESC. For example, SID_LIST_LISTENER = (SID_LIST=(SID_DESC=(SID_NAME=<sid>)(PRESPAWN_MAX=15)(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)(PRESPAWN_DESC=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(POOL_SIZE=10)(TIMEOUT=30)))) Add or correct these parameters in the LISTENER.ORA file
TNS-01174: The sum of the POOL_SIZEs from each PRESPAWN_DESC is greater than the PRESPAWN_MAX
Cause: The minimum value for PRESPAWN_MAX should be the sum of the POOL_SIZEs.
Action: Be sure the parameters required for PRESPAWN_DESC are specified in each SID_DESC. For example, SID_LIST_LISTENER = (SID_LIST=(SID_DESC=(SID_NAME=<sid>)(PRESPAWN_MAX=15)(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)(PRESPAWN_DESC=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(POOL_SIZE=10)(TIMEOUT=30))(PRESPAWN_DESC=(PROTOCOL=ipc)(POOL_SIZE=5)(TIMEOUT=15)))) Add or correct these parameters in the LISTENER.ORA file
TNS-01175: Password unchanged
Cause: Unable to set the new password
Action: Be sure to see that the new password has legal ASCII characters. Try to set the password again.
TNS-01176: Error in loading the new parameter value
Cause: Illegal values given for the parameters
Action: Make sure that the parameter values are valid refer to the manual for the legal values for paramters
TNS-01177: Log Status is OFF. Log file/directory unchanged
Cause: Log status needs to be set ON for changing the log file
Action: use command set log_status ON to set the log status of the listener ON.
TNS-01178: Trace Level is 0. Trace file/directory unchanged
Cause: Trace Level needs to be set for changing the trace file/directory
Action: use command set trc_level ON to set the trace level
TNS-01179: Listener cannot load instance class "string"
Cause: Instance tried to register as a class unknown to listener.
Action: check LISTENER.ORA and/or instance configuration, and reference platform documentation to find the instance classes available for the listener on this platform.
TNS-01180: Missing listener object string in Directory Server
Cause: The listener could not find the listener object specified.
Action: Make sure the listener object is present in the Directory Server.
TNS-01181: Internal registration connection limit reached
Cause: The number of registration connections has reached the maximum. No more registrations are allowed until some of the existing registration connections are completed.
Action: Disconnect existing registration connections if they are no longer needed.
TNS-01182: Listener rejected registration of service "string"
Cause: Received registration information could not be processed because it was invalid, or an internal error occurred.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and restart the instance. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01183: Listener rejected registration or update of instance "string"
Cause: Received registration or update information could not be processed because it was invalid, or an internal error occurred.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and restart the instance. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01184: Listener rejected registration or update of service handler "string"
Cause: Received registration or update information could not be processed because it was invalid, or an internal error occurred.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and restart the instance. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-01185: Registration attempted from a remote node
Cause: It was determined that the registering instance is not located on the same node as the listener. It is required that the instance be colocated with the listener for this type of service registration.
Action: Check the configuration of the registering instance. Ensure that local_listener parameter specifies only local listeners. Use remote_listener parameter to specify remote listeners.
TNS-01186: Client connection was dropped based on a filtering rule
Cause: Listener was configured with a filtering rule which explicitly specified that the client connection should be terminated without returning an error to the client.
Action: Modify the filtering rules if the client should be allowed access to the requested service.
TNS-01187: No proxy service handler available
Cause: One of the following conditions has occurred:

- the proxy service was not registered

- the proxy service was registered, but was blocking new connections

- all of the registered proxy service handlers were blocking new connections

Action: If the proxy service is not registered it may need to be restarted. If the proxy service handlers are busy and not accepting new connections more of them may need to be started to handle the load.
TNS-01188: Listener cannot operate with incompatible transport protocols
Cause: Listener was configured with multiple listening addresses with different and incompatible transport protocols. Listener cannot operate efficiently in such configuration.
Action: Modify the existing listener configuration by removing the listening address that caused the error. Configure a separate listener to listen on this address.
TNS-01189: The listener could not authenticate the user
Cause: The user attempted to issue a privileged administrative command, but could not be successfully authenticated by the listener using the local OS authentication mechanism. This may occur due to one of the following reasons:

1. The user is running a version of LSNRCTL that is lower than the version of the listener.

2. The user is attempting to administer the listener from a remote node.

3. The listener could not obtain the system resources needed to perform the authentication.

4. The local network connection between the listener and LSNRCTL was terminated unexpectedly during authentication message exchange, such as if LSNRCTL program was suddenly aborted.

5. The communication between the listener and LSNRCTL is being intercepted by a malicious user.

6. The software that the user is running is not following the authentication protocol, indicating a malicious user.

Action: Make sure that administrative commands are issued using the LSNRCTL tool that is of a version equal or greater than the version of the listener, and that the tool and the listener are running on the same node. You can issue the VERSION command to find out the version of the listener. If a malicious user is suspected, use the information provided in the listener log file to determine the source and nature of the requests. Enable listener tracing for more information. If the error persists, contact Oracle Support Services.
TNS-01190: The user is not authorized to execute the requested listener command
Cause: Most of the listener administrative commands are only intended to be issued by privileged users, for example DBAs or system administrators. If the listener password is not set, then the listener only accepts administrative requests from LSNRCTL running with the same OS credentials, or running as a local administrator (also referred to as super user).
Action: If an authorized user is attempting the command, then make sure that LSNRCTL is executed with the same OS user credentials as the running listener, or as a local administrator.
TNS-01191: Failed to initialize the local OS authentication subsystem
Cause: Initialization of the security subsystem failed during listener startup or reload. The listener could not obtain system resources (memory, or file descriptors) needed for local OS authentication security mechanism.
Action: Make sure that system resources like shared memory and heap memory are available for listener to execute properly. For further details, turn on tracing and execute the operation again. If the error persists, contact Oracle Support Services.
TNS-01192: Missing SID_LIST_ value left of equation for SID description in LISTENER.ORA
Cause: SID description in LISTENER.ORA had an error in it.
Action: Make sure the lines of code in LISTENER.ORA containing SID_DESC or SID begin with SID_LIST_<listener_name> on the left side of the equation. For example, SID_LIST_LISTENER =(SID_LIST=(SID_DESC=(SID_NAME=<sid>)(ORACLE_HOME=<oracle_home>)))
TNS-01193: Listener cannot operate with specified secure transport
Cause: Listener was configured with transport protocols which are either invalid or none of the secure transport protocols are present in listening addresses.
Action: Modify the existing listener configuration by specifying a valid tranport protocol in secure transport list.
TNS-01194: The listener command did not arrive in a secure transport
Cause: Most of the listener administrative commands are only intended to be issued in a secure transport, which are configured in secure_control_ parameter. If the parameter is set, then the listener accepts administrative requests only on those secure transports.
Action: Make sure the command is issued using a transport specified in secure transport list.
TNS-01200: The listener must be suid root
Cause: The ownership privileges of the TNSLSNR executable are incorrect.
Action: Contact your DBA or system administrator to change the ownership of the file to be suid root and restart the listener. This action is necessary because the user that started the process should claim ownership.
TNS-01201: Listener cannot find executable string for SID string
Cause: The executable for the Oracle dedicated server process cannot be found.
Action: Check the appropriate SID_DESC in LISTENER.ORA to make sure that the ORACLE_HOME component is pointing to a valid location. If this component is not set, then check the value of the ORACLE_HOME environment variable.
TNS-01202: Missing the dba group (string) specified by DBA_GROUP in SID_DESC
Cause: The dba group specified is missing from /ETC/GROUP.
Action: Check the DBA_GROUP parameter in the SID_DESC in LISTENER.ORA and verify it has a valid entry in /ETC/GROUP.
TNS-01203: Missing the account (string) specified by DEFAULT_USER_ACCOUNT in SID_DESC
Cause: The unprivileged OS account is missing from /etc/passwd.
Action: Check the DEFAULT_USER_ACCOUNT parameter in the SID_DESC in LISTENER.ORA and verify it has a valid entry in /etc/passwd. This is the account that the Oracle shadow process will be started with if the the connecting client has database privileges or does not exist on this machine.
TNS-01204: Unprivileged account (string) is in dba group (string)
Cause: The unprivileged account has DBA privileges. The unprivileged account specified by DEFAULT_USER_ACCOUNT in the SID_DESC in LISTENER.ORA is a member of the dba group specified by DBA_GROUP in SID_DESC.

Action: Reestablish connection.
TNS-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified
Cause: A connection to a database or other service was requested using a connect identifier, and the connect identifier specified could not be resolved into a connect descriptor using one of the naming methods configured. For example, if the type of connect identifier used was a net service name then the net service name could not be found in a naming method repository, or the repository could not be located or reached.
Action:

- If you are using local naming (TNSNAMES.ORA file):

- Make sure that "TNSNAMES" is listed as one of the values of the NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH parameter in the Oracle Net profile (SQLNET.ORA)

- Verify that a TNSNAMES.ORA file exists and is in the proper directory and is accessible.

- Check that the net service name used as the connect identifier exists in the TNSNAMES.ORA file.

- Make sure there are no syntax errors anywhere in the TNSNAMES.ORA file. Look for unmatched parentheses or stray characters. Errors in a TNSNAMES.ORA file may make it unusable.

- If you are using directory naming:

- Verify that "LDAP" is listed as one of the values of the NAMES.DIRETORY_PATH parameter in the Oracle Net profile (SQLNET.ORA).

- Verify that the LDAP directory server is up and that it is accessible.

- Verify that the net service name or database name used as the connect identifier is configured in the directory.

- Verify that the default context being used is correct by specifying a fully qualified net service name or a full LDAP DN as the connect identifier

- If you are using easy connect naming:

- Verify that "EZCONNECT" is listed as one of the values of the NAMES.DIRETORY_PATH parameter in the Oracle Net profile (SQLNET.ORA).

- Make sure the host, port and service name specified are correct.

- Try enclosing the connect identifier in quote marks. See the Oracle Net Services Administrators Guide or the Oracle operating system specific guide for more information on naming.

Cause: Unable to locate parameter file.
Action: Verify that a valid parameter file exists, and is readable.
TNS-12159: TNS:trace file not writeable
Cause: The trace file to be generated is not writeable by this user.
Action: If the user does not have write permissions in the directory to which the trace file will be written, contact an administrator to get the proper permissions or set the TRACE_DIRECTORY_CLIENT parameter in the net profile (SQLNET.ORA file) to a directory the user can write to.
TNS-12160: TNS:internal error: Bad error number
Cause: Corrupt error reporting subsystem.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12161: TNS:internal error: partial data received
Cause: The connection may be terminated.
Action: Reconnect and try again. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12162: TNS:net service name is incorrectly specified
Cause: The connect descriptor corresponding to the net service name in TNSNAMES.ORA or in the directory server (Oracle Internet Directory) is incorrectly specified.
Action: If using local naming make sure there are no syntax errors in the corresponding connect descriptor in the TNSNAMES.ORA file. If using directory naming check the information provided through the administration used for directory naming.
TNS-12163: TNS:connect descriptor is too long
Cause: The connect descriptor corresponding to the net service name specified as the connect identifier is too long. The maximum length for a connect descriptor is 512 bytes and this limit has been exceeded.
Action: Check the net service name's connect descriptor in the local naming file (TNSNAMES.ORA) or in the directory server (Oracle Internet Directory). Use a smaller connect descriptor. If this is not possible, contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12164: TNS:Sqlnet.fdf file not present
Cause: The sqlnet.fdf file doesn't exist in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin.
Action: The sqlnet.fdf file is required for Oracle Tracing to occur. Either install the sqlnet.fdf file in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin or turn off tracing in your ORA file.
TNS-12165: TNS:Trying to write trace file into swap space.
Cause: Oracle Trace doesn't allow writing trace information into your swap space.
Action: Oracle Trace cannot write trace information into swap space so either disable tracing or redirect trace files to be written to another area of your disk.
TNS-12166: TNS:Client can not connect to HO agent.
Cause: NVstring contained DESCRIPTION/HO.
Action: Call HO agent from integrating server.
TNS-12168: TNS:Unable to contact LDAP Directory Server
Cause: Cannot contact LDAP directory server to get Oracle Net configuration.
Action: Verify that the directory server is up and accessible from the network. Verify that directory access configuration is correct. For more information see the Oracle Internet Directory Administrators Guide or the Oracle Net Administrators Guide.
TNS-12169: TNS:Net service name given as connect identifier is too long
Cause: The net service name you are attempting to resolve is too long.
Action: The maximum length of a net service name is 255 bytes; this limit has been exceeded. Use a smaller net service name. If this is not possible, contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12170: TNS:Connect timeout occurred
Cause: The server shut down because connection establishment or communication with a client failed to complete within the allotted time interval. This may be a result of network or system delays; or this may indicate that a malicious client is trying to cause a Denial of Service attack on the server.
Action: If the error occurred because of a slow network or system, reconfigure one or all of the parameters SQLNET.INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT, SQLNET.SEND_TIMEOUT, SQLNET.RECV_TIMEOUT in sqlnet.ora to larger values. If a malicious client is suspected, use the address in sqlnet.log to identify the source and restrict access. Note that logged addresses may not be reliable as they can be forged (e.g. in TCP/IP).
TNS-12171: TNS:could not resolve connect identifier: string
Cause: A connection to a database or other service was requested using a connect identifier, and the connect identifier specified could not be resolved into a connect descriptor using one of the naming methods configured. For example, if the type of connect identifier used was a net service name then the net service name could not be found in a naming method repository, or the repository could not be located or reached.
Action:

- If you are using local naming (TNSNAMES.ORA file):

- Make sure that "TNSNAMES" is listed as one of the values of the NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH parameter in the Oracle Net profile (SQLNET.ORA)

- Verify that a TNSNAMES.ORA file exists and is in the proper directory and is accessible.

- Check that the net service name used as the connect identifier exists in the TNSNAMES.ORA file.

- Make sure there are no syntax errors anywhere in the TNSNAMES.ORA file. Look for unmatched parentheses or stray characters. Errors in a TNSNAMES.ORA file may make it unusable.

- If you are using directory naming:

- Verify that "LDAP" is listed as one of the values of the NAMES.DIRETORY_PATH parameter in the Oracle Net profile (SQLNET.ORA).

- Verify that the LDAP directory server is up and that it is accessible.

- Verify that the net service name or database name used as the connect identifier is configured in the directory.

- Verify that the default context being used is correct by specifying a fully qualified net service name or a full LDAP DN as the connect identifier

- If you are using easy connect naming:

- Verify that "EZCONNECT" is listed as one of the values of the NAMES.DIRETORY_PATH parameter in the Oracle Net profile (SQLNET.ORA).

- Make sure the host, port and service name specified are correct.

- Try enclosing the connect identifier in quote marks. See the Oracle Net Services Administrators Guide or the Oracle operating system specific guide for more information on naming.

TNS-12196: TNS:received an error from TNS
Cause: The navigation layer received an error from TNS.
Action: See the error log file for the specific TNS error.
TNS-12197: TNS:keyword-value resolution error
Cause: The navigation layer received an error while trying to look up a value for a keyword.
Action: Check the syntax of the connect descriptor.
TNS-12198: TNS:could not find path to destination
Cause: Could not navigate a path through Interchanges to the destination. This error occurs if an invalid community is in the address string, or the address includes a protocol that is not available or the TNSNAV.ORA file does not have a correct CMANAGER address specified or the Interchange is down.
Action: Assure that Interchanges necessary to get to the desired destination are up and have available capacity for an additional connection. Also check that the correct community and protocol have been specified in the CMANAGER address used.
TNS-12200: TNS:could not allocate memory
Cause: Out of memory on machine.
Action: Reconfigure machine to have more storage or run fewer applications while the Interchange is running.
TNS-12201: TNS:encountered too small a connection buffer
Cause: TNS connection buffer supplied by the application was too small to retrieve the data sent back.
Action: Supply a larger connection buffer. If problem persists, call Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12202: TNS:internal navigation error
Cause: Internal navigation error.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12203: TNS:unable to connect to destination
Cause: Invalid address specified or destination is not listening. This error can also occur because of underlying network or network transport problems.
Action: Verify that the net service name you entered was correct. Verify that the ADDRESS portion of the connect descriptor which corresponds to the net service name is correct. Ensure that the destination process (for example the listener) is running at the remote node.
TNS-12204: TNS:received data refused from an application
Cause: The application using Connection Manager refused the connection at the listener.
Action: Make sure that the application listener at the destination is functioning correctly. If it is and the problem persists, contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12205: TNS:could not get failed addresses
Cause: Internal navigation error.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12206: TNS:received a TNS error during navigation
Cause: Internal navigation error because of an unexpected TNS error.
Action: Look at the log file to find the TNS error. If necessary, turn on tracing and repeat the operation.
TNS-12207: TNS:unable to perform navigation
Cause: Improperly configured navigation file TNSNAV.ORA.
Action: Check the syntax of the TNSNAV.ORA file on the application`s machine, and verify that it lists the correct communities.
TNS-12208: TNS:could not find the TNSNAV.ORA file
Cause: Either the ORACLE environment is not set up correctly, or the TNSNAV.ORA file is not present.
Action: Ensure that the ORACLE environment is set up appropriately on your platform and that a TNSNAV.ORA file is present.
TNS-12209: TNS:encountered uninitialized global
Cause: Application calling navigation routine has not properly configured the global variables. There are no TNSNAV.ORA files available, or they are defective.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Worldwide Customer Support.
TNS-12210: TNS:error in finding Navigator data
Cause: Application calling navigation routine has not properly configured the TNSNAV.ORA file.
Action: Check the syntax of the TNSNAV.ORA file.
TNS-12211: TNS:needs PREFERRED_CMANAGERS entry in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: TNSNAV.ORA does not have a PREFERRED_CMANAGERS defined.
Action: Add a PREFERRED_CMANAGERS entry to the TNSNAV.ORA file.
TNS-12212: TNS:incomplete PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: The PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding in the client's TNSNAV.ORA file does not have a CMANAGER_NAME specified.
Action: Define the CMANAGER_NAME as part of the PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding. Use of the Oracle Network Manager should eliminate this error.
TNS-12213: TNS:incomplete PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: The PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding in the client's TNSNAV.ORA file does not have an ADDRESS specified.
Action: Define the ADDRESS as part of the PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding.
TNS-12214: TNS:missing local communities entry in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: There is no LOCAL_COMMUNITIES entry in TNSNAV.ORA.
Action: Define the LOCAL_COMMUNITIES for this node in the TNSNAV.ORA file.
TNS-12215: TNS:poorly formed PREFERRED_NAVIGATORS Addresses in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: Address binding for PREFERRED_NAVIGATORS entry is improperly entered. entry.
Action: Check your PREFERRED_NAVIGATORS entry and fix it in TNSNAV.ORA
TNS-12216: TNS:poorly formed PREFERRED_CMANAGERS addresses in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: Address binding for the PREFERRED_CMANAGERS entry in the client's TNSNAV.ORA file is improperly entered.
Action: Define the ADDRESS as part of the PREFERRED_CMANAGERS binding.
TNS-12217: TNS:could not contact PREFERRED_CMANAGERS in TNSNAV.ORA
Cause: There is a syntax error in the PREFERRED_CMANAGERS entry, or addresses specified are wrong, or the intended Connection Managers are unavailable.
Action: Check the PREFERRED_CMANAGERS entries in the client's TNSNAV.ORA file and correct them or talk with your network administrator to determine if the specified Connection Managers are available. Verify that the Interchanges are active by using the INTCTL STATUS command.
TNS-12218: TNS:unacceptable network configuration data
Cause: Poorly formed network configuration data. For example, a PREFERRED_CMANAGERS entry may have an incorrect CMANAGER_NAME in the client's TNSNAV.ORA file. Or an Interchange downtime parameter (TIMEOUT_INTERVAL) on the Navigator may be set to zero in INTCHG.ORA.
Action: Check the entries in TNSNAV.ORA and the Interchange configuration files and correct them. If necessary, talk with your network administrator to determine if the specified Interchanges (Connection Managers) are available and properly configured. Use the Oracle Network Manager to generate the configuration files if necessary.
TNS-12219: TNS:missing community name from address in ADDRESS_LIST
Cause: This error occurs when an ADDRESS_LIST has some ADDRESSes in it that have no COMMUNITY component and others that do have a COMMUNITY component.
Action: Check that in the connect descriptors you are using either all the ADDRESSes have a COMMUNITY component or all do not.
TNS-12221: TNS:illegal ADDRESS parameters
Cause: An illegal set of protocol adapter parameters was specified. In some cases, this error is returned when a connection cannot be made to the protocol transport.
Action: Verify that the destination can be reached using the specified protocol. Check the parameters within the ADDRESS section of TNSNAMES.ORA or in the directory. Legal ADDRESS parameter formats may be found in the Oracle operating system specific documentation or the Oracle Net Administrator's Guide. Protocols that resolve names at the transport layer are vulnerable to this error if not properly configured or names are misspelled.
TNS-12222: TNS:no support is available for the protocol indicated
Cause: The protocol requested in the ADDRESS portion of the connect descriptor identified through the net service name is not available. If the supplied ADDRESS is typographically correct then support for that protocol is not installed.
Action: Install support for the protocol or correct typographical error, as appropriate. Note: if the supplied address was derived from resolving the net service name, check the address in the appropriate file (TNSNAMES.ORA, LISTENER.ORA) or in the directory server.
TNS-12223: TNS:internal limit restriction exceeded
Cause: Too many TNS connections open simultaneously.
Action: Wait for connections to close and re-try.
TNS-12224: TNS:no listener
Cause: The connection request could not be completed because the listener is not running.
Action: Ensure that the supplied destination address matches one of the addresses used by the listener - compare the TNSNAMES.ORA entry with the appropriate LISTENER.ORA file (or TNSNAV.ORA if the connection is to go by way of an Interchange). Start the listener on the remote machine.
TNS-12225: TNS:destination host unreachable
Cause: Contact can not be made with remote party.
Action: Make sure the network driver is functioning and the network is up.
TNS-12226: TNS:operating system resource quota exceeded
Cause: The current user has exceeded the allotted resource assigned in the operating system.
Action: Acquire more operating system resource, or perform a different function.
TNS-12227: TNS:syntax error
Cause: The supplied connect descriptor contains illegal syntax.
Action: Check the syntax of the connect descriptor in TNSNAMES.ORA.
TNS-12228: TNS:protocol adapter not loadable
Cause: On some platforms (such as Windows) protocol support is loaded at run-time. If the shared library (or DLL) for the protocol adapter is missing or one of its supporting libraries is missing then this error is returned.
Action: For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. The trace file will include the name of the shared library (or DLL) that could not be loaded.
TNS-12229: TNS:Interchange has no more free connections
Cause: One or more Interchanges along the path to the destination desired has no more free connections available to be used for this call.
Action: Try again later when the Interchanges are less busy, or contact your network administrator to have him determine which interchange it is, and increase the number of connections available on that interchange.
TNS-12230: TNS:Severe Network error occurred in making this connection
Cause: This error is reported by an interchange which fails to make contact with the destination due to a physical network error while calling a destination.
Action: Try again later when the network service may have been fixed or report the problem to your Network Administrator so that he may fix the problem.
TNS-12231: TNS:No connection possible to destination
Cause: This error is reported by an interchange which fails to find a possible connection along the path to the destination.
Action: Report the problem to your Network Administrator so that he may fix the problem.
TNS-12232: TNS:No path available to destination
Cause: This error is reported by an interchange which fails to find a possible path to the destination.
Action: Report the problem to your Network Administrator so that he may fix the problem.
TNS-12233: TNS:Failure to accept a connection
Cause: This error is reported by an interchange which fails to accept a connection due to a redirect failure.
Action: Report the problem to your Network Administrator so that he may isolate the interchange problem.
TNS-12234: TNS:Redirect to destination
Cause: This error is reported by an interchange which determines that this interchange is not the right gateway and needs to redirect the connection to another gateway along the path to the destination.
Action: None
TNS-12235: TNS:Failure to redirect to destination
Cause: This error is reported by an interchange which fails to redirect a connection to another interchange along the path to the destination.
Action: Report the problem to your Network Administrator so that he may fix the problem.
TNS-12236: TNS:protocol support not loaded
Cause: On some platforms (such as Windows) protocol support is loaded at run-time. If the shared library (or DLL) for the protocol adapter has not been loaded, then this error is returned.
Action: For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. The trace file will have the name of the shared library (or DLL) that has not been loaded.
TNS-12500: TNS:listener failed to start a dedicated server process
Cause: The process of starting up a dedicated server process failed. The executable could not be found or the environment may be set up incorrectly.
Action: Turn on tracing at the ADMIN level and reexecute the operation. Verify that the ORACLE Server executable is present and has execute permissions enabled. Ensure that the ORACLE environment is specified correctly in LISTENER.ORA. The Oracle Protocol Adapter that is being called may not be installed on the local hard drive. Please check that the correct Protocol Adapter are successfully linked. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12502: TNS:listener received no CONNECT_DATA from client
Cause: No CONNECT_DATA was passed to the listener.
Action: Check that the service name resolved from TNSNAMES.ORA has the CONNECT_DATA component of the connect descriptor.
TNS-12504: TNS:listener was not given the SERVICE_NAME in CONNECT_DATA
Cause: The listener was not configured with a default service and SERVICE_NAME was missing from the CONNECT_DATA received by the listener.
Action: Possible solutions are:

- Configure DEFAULT_SERVICE parameter in LISTENER.ORA with a valid service name. Reload the listener parameter file using reload [<listener_name>]. This should be done by the LISTENER administrator.

- If using a service name, Check that the connect descriptor corresponding to the service name in TNSNAMES.ORA has a SERVICE_NAME or SID component in the CONNECT_DATA.

TNS-12505: TNS:listener does not currently know of SID given in connect descriptor
Cause: The listener received a request to establish a connection to a database or other service. The connect descriptor received by the listener specified a SID for an instance (usually a database instance) that either has not yet dynamically registered with the listener or has not been statically configured for the listener. This may be a temporary condition such as after the listener has started, but before the database instance has registered with the listener.
Action:

- Wait a moment and try to connect a second time.

- Check which instances are currently known by the listener by executing: lsnrctl services <listener name>

- Check that the SID parameter in the connect descriptor specifies an instance known by the listener.

- Check for an event in the listener.log file.

TNS-12508: TNS:listener could not resolve the COMMAND given
Cause: d by incompatible Oracle Net or Net8 versions. Do not include in error manual.
Action: This is not seen in normal use of Oracle Net.
TNS-12509: TNS:listener failed to redirect client to service handler
Cause: The dispatcher terminated unexpectedly
Action: Attempt to connect again and if the same error occurs, contact the DBA to check the state of the dispatchers for this SID. If the problem persists, turn on tracing in the listener to determine the TNS error caused by the redirect.
TNS-12510: TNS:database temporarily lacks resources to handle the request
Cause: The dispatchers appear to be busy handling other requests.
Action: Attempt the connection again. If error persists, ask the DBA to increase the number of dispatchers and/or dispatchers' limit on number of connections/sessions that they can accept.
TNS-12511: TNS:service handler found but it is not accepting connections
Cause: The dispatchers notified the listener that they temporarily do not accept new connections.
Action: Attempt the connection again. If error persists, contact the DBA to check the state of the dispatchers and/or ask him to increase the number of dispatchers.
TNS-12513: TNS:service handler found but it has registered for a different protocol
Cause: The dispatchers registered for this service are connected to the listener by way of a different network protocol than that of the client.
Action: Contact the DBA to register a dispatcher on your protocol.
TNS-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor
Cause: The listener received a request to establish a connection to a database or other service. The connect descriptor received by the listener specified a service name for a service (usually a database service) that either has not yet dynamically registered with the listener or has not been statically configured for the listener. This may be a temporary condition such as after the listener has started, but before the database instance has registered with the listener.
Action:

- Wait a moment and try to connect a second time.

- Check which services are currently known by the listener by executing: lsnrctl services <listener name>

- Check that the SERVICE_NAME parameter in the connect descriptor of the net service name used specifies a service known by the listener.

- If an easy connect naming connect identifier was used, check that the service name specified is a service known by the listener.

- Check for an event in the listener.log file.

TNS-12515: TNS:listener could not find a handler for this presentation
Cause: None of the listener's known service handlers are registered as supporting the presentation protocol required by the connecting client.
Action: Check that the destination service is configured to accept the presentation protocol.
TNS-12516: TNS:listener could not find available handler with matching protocol stack
Cause: None of the known and available service handlers for the given SERVICE_NAME support the client's protocol stack: transport, session, and presentation protocols.
Action: Check to make sure that the service handlers (e.g. dispatchers) for the given SERVICE_NAME are registered with the listener, are accepting connections, and that they are properly configured to support the desired protocols.
TNS-12518: TNS:listener could not hand off client connection
Cause: The process of handing off a client connection to another process failed.
Action: Turn on listener tracing and re-execute the operation. Verify that the listener and database instance are properly configured for direct handoff. If problem persists, call Oracle Support.
TNS-12519: TNS:no appropriate service handler found
Cause: The listener could not find any available service handlers that are appropriate for the client connection.
Action: Run "lsnrctl services" to ensure that the instance(s) have registered with the listener, and are accepting connections.
TNS-12520: TNS:listener could not find available handler for requested type of server
Cause: None of the known and available service handlers for requested type of server (dedicated or shared) are appropriate for the client connection.
Action: Run "lsnrctl services" to ensure that the instance(s) have registered with the listener and that the appropriate handlers are accepting connections.
TNS-12521: TNS:listener does not currently know of instance requested in connect descriptor
Cause: The listener received a request to establish a connection to a database or other service. The connect descriptor received by the listener specified in addition to the service name an instance name for an instance (usually a database instance) that either has not yet dynamically registered with the listener or has not been statically configured for the listener. This may be a temporary condition such as after the listener has started, but before the database instance has registered with the listener.
Action:

- Wait a moment and try to connect a second time.

- Check which instances are currently known by the listener by executing: lsnrctl services <listener name>

- Check that the INSTANCE_NAME parameter in the connect descriptor specifies an instance name known by the listener.

- Check for an event in the listener.log file.

TNS-12522: TNS:listener could not find available instance with given INSTANCE_ROLE
Cause: There are not any available and appropriate database instances registered with the listener, that are part of the service identified by SERVICE_NAME given in the connect descriptor and that have the specified INSTANCE_ROLE (and INSTANCE_NAME, if specified).
Action: Check to make sure that the INSTANCE_ROLE specified is correct. Run "lsnrctl services" to ensure that the instance(s) have registered with the listener and that they are ready to accept connections.
TNS-12523: TNS:listener could not find instance appropriate for the client connection
Cause: The listener could not find any available (database) instances, that are appropriate for the client connection.
Action: Run "lsnrctl services" to ensure that the instance(s) are registered with the listener, and have status READY.
TNS-12524: TNS:listener could not resolve HANDLER_NAME given in connect descriptor
Cause: The HANDLER_NAME in the CONNECT_DATA was not found in the listener's tables for the specified SERVICE_NAME and INSTANCE_NAME.
Action: Check to make sure that the HANDLER_NAME specified is correct.
TNS-12525: TNS:listener has not received client's request in time allowed
Cause: The listener disconnected the client because the client failed to provide the necessary connect information within the allowed time interval. This may be a result of network or system delays; or this may indicate that a malicious client is trying to cause a Denial of Service attack on the listener.
Action: If the error occurred because of a slow network or system, reconfigure INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT to a larger value. If a malicious client is suspected, use the address in listener.log to identify the source and restrict access. Turn on tracing for more information.
TNS-12526: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are in restricted mode
Cause: Database instances supporting the service requested by the client were in restricted mode. The Listener does not allow connections to instances in restricted mode. This condition may be temporary, such as during periods when database administration is performed.
Action: Attempt the connection again. If error persists, then contact the database administrator to change the mode of the instance, if appropriate.
TNS-12527: TNS:listener: all instances are in restricted mode or blocking new connections
Cause: All appropriate database instances supporting the service requested by the client reported that they either were in restricted mode or were blocking the new connections. The Listener does not allow connections to such instances. This condition may be temporary, such as at instance startup.
Action: Attempt the connection again. If error persists, then contact the database administrator to check the status of the instances.
TNS-12528: TNS:listener: all appropriate instances are blocking new connections
Cause: All instances supporting the service requested by the client reported that they were blocking the new connections. This condition may be temporary, such as at instance startup.
Action: Attempt the connection again. If error persists, then contact the administrator to check the status of the instances.
TNS-12529: TNS:connect request rejected based on current filtering rules
Cause: Connection Manager and its listener were configured with filtering rules specifying that the connect request be rejected.
Action: If this connect request should be allowed, then contact the administrator to modify the filtering rules.
TNS-12531: TNS:cannot allocate memory
Cause: Sufficient memory could not be allocated to perform the desired activity.
Action: Either free some resource for TNS, or add more memory to the machine. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation.
TNS-12532: TNS:invalid argument
Cause: An internal function received an invalid parameter.
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12533: TNS:illegal ADDRESS parameters
Cause: An illegal set of protocol adapter parameters was specified. In some cases, this error is returned when a connection cannot be made to the protocol transport.
Action: Verify that the destination can be reached using the specified protocol. Check the parameters within the ADDRESS section of TNSNAMES.ORA. Legal ADDRESS parameter formats may be found in the Oracle operating system specific documentation for your platform. Protocols that resolve names at the transport layer (such as DECnet object names) are vulnerable to this error if not properly configured or names are misspelled.
TNS-12534: TNS:operation not supported
Cause: An internal function received a request to perform an operation that is not supported (on this machine).
Action: Not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation. If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.

TNS-12536: TNS:operation would block
Cause: An internal operation did not commence because to do so would block the current process and the user has requested that operations be non-blocking.
Action: None needed; this is an information message.
TNS-12537: TNS:connection closed
Cause: "End of file" condition has been reached; partner has disconnected.
Action: None needed; this is an information message.
TNS-12538: TNS:no such protocol adapter
Cause: The protocol adapter requested (by way of the "(PROTOCOL=..)" keyword-value pair in a TNS address) is unknown. If the supplied address is typographically correct then the protocol adapter is not installed.
Action: Install the protocol adapter or correct typographically error, as appropriate. Note: if the supplied address was derived from resolving the service name, check the address in the appropriate file (TNSNAMES.ORA, LISTENER.ORA or SQLNET.ORA).
TNS-12539: TNS:buffer over- or under-flow
Cause: Buffer too small for incoming data or too large for outgoing data.
Action: This restriction (which is associated with CONNECT DATA) is not normally visible to the user. For further details, turn on tracing and reexecute the operation; contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12540: TNS:internal limit restriction exceeded
Cause: Too many TNS connections open simultaneously.

TNS-12631: Username retrieval failed
Cause: The authentication service failed to retrieve the name of a user.
Action: Enable tracing to determine which routine is failing.
TNS-12632: Role fetch failed
Cause: The authentication service failed to retrieve one of the user's roles.
Action: Enable tracing to determine which routine is failing.
TNS-12633: No shared authentication services
Cause: The list of authentication services specified by the user does not match those supported by the process.
Action: Either specify another list or relink the executable with the desired services.
TNS-12634: Memory allocation failed
Cause: Process was unable to allocate memory.
Action: Terminate other processes in order to reclaim needed memory.
TNS-12635: No authentication adapters available
Cause: The executable was not linked with any authentication service adapters but the sqlnet.ora parameter that determines whether or not authentication is required was set to true.
Action: Either disable the parameter or relink the executable with service adapters.
TNS-12636: Packet send failed
Cause: A process was unable to send a packet to another process. Possible causes are:

1. The other process was terminated.

2. The machine on which the other process is running went down.

3. Some other communications error occurred.

Action: If the cause is not obvious, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12637: Packet receive failed
Cause: A process was unable to receive a packet from another process. Possible causes are:

TNS-12638: Credential retrieval failed
Cause: The authentication service failed to retrieve the credentials of a user.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12639: Authentication service negotiation failed
Cause: No match was found between the types of authentication services that the client supports and those that the server is using.
Action: Possible solutions:

1. Change the entry in sqlnet.ora that determines which services are to be used.

2. Relink the client with at least one of the authentication service adapters that the server supports.

3. Relink the server with at least one of the authentication service adapters that the client supports.

4. Disable authentication on both the client and server.

TNS-12640: Authentication adapter initialization failed
Cause: The function specified in the authentication table entry for the service failed.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12641: Authentication service failed to initialize
Cause: The authentication service failed during initialization.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12642: No session key
Cause: A process has no session key associated with it because the authentication service being used does not use one.
Action: If a session key is required, use another authentication service.
TNS-12643: Client received internal error from server
Cause: The client process received an error from the server that indicated that an internal Oracle Net native services error had occurred.
Action: Enable tracing on both processes and attempt to recreate the problem. If successful in recreating the problem, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12645: Parameter does not exist.
Cause: A sqlnet.ora parameter from which a value was needed does not exist.
Action: Set the parameter in the parameter file.
TNS-12646: Invalid value specified for boolean parameter
Cause: The value specified for a parameter was set to a value other than true/false or on/off.
Action: Correct the value of the parameter.
TNS-12647: Authentication required
Cause: The parameter that controls whether authentication is required was set to true, but the executable does not have an authentication service linked in.
Action: Either re-link the executable with an authentication service adapter or disable the parameter.
TNS-12648: Encryption or data integrity algorithm list empty
Cause: An Oracle Advanced Security list-of-algorithms parameter was empty, e.g. "()".
Action: Change the list to contain the name of at least one installed algorithm, or remove the list entirely if every installed algorithm is acceptable.
TNS-12649: Unknown encryption or data integrity algorithm
Cause: An Oracle Advanced Security list-of-algorithms parameter included an algorithm name that was not recognized.
Action: Either remove that algorithm name, correct it if it was misspelled, or install the driver for the missing algorithm.
TNS-12650: No common encryption or data integrity algorithm
Cause: The client and server have no algorithm in common for either encryption or data integrity or both.
Action: Choose sets of algorithms that overlap. In other words, add one of the client's algorithm choices to the server's list or vice versa.
TNS-12651: Encryption or data integrity algorithm unacceptable
Cause: The algorithm the server chose to use for encryption or data integrity was not one of the choices acceptable to the client. This is either the result of an internal error, of a network data transmission error, or of deliberate tampering with the transmitted data.
Action: For further details, turn on tracing, re-execute the operation, and contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12652: String truncated
Cause: Not enough memory was allocated for a string so it had to be truncated
Action: If it is OK that the string is truncated, then it is not an error. Otherwise, call the routine that reported the error again with a larger string buffer.
TNS-12653: Authentication control function failed
Cause: The control function utilized by the authentication service driver failed.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12654: Authentication conversion failed
Cause: The authentication service was unable to convert the credentials of a user from the format specific to the format into the ORACLE format.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12655: Password check failed
Cause: The authentication service being used was unable to verify the provided password.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12656: Cryptographic checksum mismatch
Cause: The cryptographic checksum received with a packet of incoming data didn't match the checksum computed by the receiving end. This indicates that the packet was tampered with or otherwise corrupted in transit.
Action: Look for sources of data corruption, perhaps including deliberate tampering.
TNS-12657: No algorithms installed
Cause: The near side of the connection required the use of a service (either encryption or checksumming) when no algorithms for that service were installed.
Action: Remove the "ON" requirement for that service.
TNS-12658: ANO service required but TNS version is incompatible
Cause: A client process that is running an earlier version of TNS attempted to connect but the connection failed because the server process required that an ANO service (authentication, encryption, etc.) be used.
Action: Relink the calling executable and retry the connection or eliminate the requirement that the service be used on the server side.
TNS-12659: Error received from other process
Cause: An error was received by one or more services from the process on the other side of the connection.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error(s). The error(s) is (are) not returned directly because an error generated by a server may not make sense on the client side and vice-versa.
TNS-12660: Encryption or crypto-checksumming parameters incompatible
Cause: One side of the connection specified "REQUIRED" for encryption or crypto-checksumming, while the other side specified "REJECTED".
Action: Change the "REQUIRED" side to "REQUESTED" if the you want encryption or crypto-checksumming to be optional, or change the "REJECTED" side to "ACCEPTED" if you do not want the service to be optional.
TNS-12661: Protocol authentication to be used
Cause: The Oracle Advanced Security authentication service has determined that the Oracle Net transport protocol in use is to be utilized to authenticate a user's identity.
Action: This error is used solely to communicate information between the authentication service and the Oracle Net session layer and should not normally be visible. If the error is seen, contact Oracle Worldwide Support.
TNS-12662: proxy ticket retrieval failed
Cause: The authentication adapter used by Oracle Net failed to retrieve the credentials needed to authenticate a database link.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error.
TNS-12663: Services required by client not available on the server
Cause: Service(s) that was (were) required by the client process were not available on the server process.
Action: Configure the server with the services required by the client (best solution) or delete the requirement from the configuration file of the client (least secure).
TNS-12664: Services required by server not available on the client
Cause: Service(s) that was (were) required by the server process were not available on the client process.
Action: Configure the client with the services required by the server (best solution) or delete the requirement from the configuration file of the server (least secure).
TNS-12665: NLS string open failed
Cause: A native service was unable to make a string available for use by the National Language Support component.
Action: Make sure the National Language Support component has been properly. If it has, enable tracing and report the problem to Customer Support.
TNS-12666: Dedicated server: outbound transport protocol different from inbound
Cause: The protocol specified for an externally-identified outbound connection from a dedicated server (database link) was not the same as that used for the inbound connection. It is not possible for Oracle Net to authenticate a proxy connection that uses a protocol that is different from that which was used for the connection to the dedicated server.
Action: Specify the same protocol in the Oracle Net connect descriptor for the outbound connection as that used for the inbound connection.
TNS-12667: Shared server: outbound transport protocol different from inbound
Cause: The protocol specified for an externally-identified outbound connection from a shared server (database link) was not the same as as that used for the inbound connection. It is not possible for Oracle Net to authenticate a proxy connection that uses a protocol that is different from that which was used for the connection to the shared server.
Action: Specify the same protocol in the Oracle Net connect descriptor for the outbound connection as that used for the inbound connection
TNS-12668: Dedicated server: outbound protocol does not support proxies
Cause: The protocol specified to perform an externally-identified proxy connection (database link) from a dedicated server does not support proxy connections.
Action: Specify a protocol in the Oracle Net connect descriptor used for the connection that does support externally-authenticated proxy connections. NOTE: Because of a limitation in Oracle Net, the protocol used for the proxy connection must the same as that used for the connection from the client to the server.
TNS-12669: Shared server: outbound protocol does not support proxies
Cause: The protocol specified to perform an externally-identified proxy connection (database link) from a shared server does not support proxy connections.
Action: Specify a protocol in the Oracle Net connect descriptor used for the connection that does support externally-authenticated proxy connections. NOTE: Because of a limitation in Oracle Net, the protocol used for the proxy connection must the same as that used for the connection from the client to the server.
TNS-12670: Incorrect role password
Cause: A password supplied for a role could not be validated by the authentication service.
Action: Supply the correct password.
TNS-12671: Shared server: adapter failed to save context
Cause: The adapter for the authentication service failed when it tried to save the data needed for proxy connections (database links) through the shared server.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error. Contact Oracle Customer Support if the reason is not obvious.
TNS-12672: Database logon failure
Cause: The authentication service adapter in use encountered an error it attempted to validate the logon attempt of a user.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error encountered by the adapter.
TNS-12673: Dedicated server: context not saved
Cause: A connection was marked as being a proxy connection (database link) from a dedicated server but no inbound context was present.
Action: This error should not normally be visible to the user. Contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12674: Shared server: proxy context not saved
Cause: A connection was marked as being a proxy connection (database link) from a shared server but no inbound context was present.
Action: This error should not normally be visible to the user. Contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12675: External user name not available yet
Cause: The authentication service in use was not able to return the external name of a user of the ORACLE server because it is not available to the service yet.
Action: This is just an informational message and should not normally be visible to the user. If the error does appear, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12676: Server received internal error from client
Cause: The server process received an error from the client which indicated that an internal Oracle Net native services error had occurred.
Action: Enable tracing on both processes and attempt to recreate the problem. If the problem recurs, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12677: Authentication service not supported by database link
Cause: The authentication service used by the proxy process (database link) was unable to find the adapter being used by the client in its list of authentication mechanisms.
Action: Specify an authentication adapter that is shared by the client and the server being used for the database link.
TNS-12678: Authentication disabled but required
Cause: The configuration parameters that control whether Oracle Advanced Security authentication is disabled or required were both set to TRUE.
Action: Set one or both of the parameters to FALSE.
TNS-12679: Native services disabled by other process but required
Cause: The remote process has disabled native services but the local process requires them.
Action: Enable native services on the remote process or disable them locally.
TNS-12680: Native services disabled but required
Cause: The process has disabled native services but at least one service is required.
Action: Enable native services or change the configuration file so that none of the available services are required.
TNS-12681: Login failed: the SecurID card does not have a pincode yet
Cause: The SecurID card that is used to logon to Oracle, does not have a pincode assigned to it.
Action: Use one of the programs supplied by Security Dynamics to assign a pincode to the card.
TNS-12682: Login failed: the SecurID card is in next PRN mode
Cause: The SecurID card and the SecurID server are out of sync and the server requires the next cardcode to resynchronize the card.
Action: Use one of the programs supplied by Security Dynamics to resynchronize the SecurID card.
TNS-12683: encryption/crypto-checksumming: no Diffie-Hellman seed
Cause: The "sqlnet.crypto_seed" parameter is missing from the SQLNET.ORA parameters file for Oracle Advanced Security.
Action: Add this line to SQLNET.ORA: sqlnet.crypto_seed = "randomly-chosen text"
TNS-12684: encryption/crypto-checksumming: Diffie-Hellman seed too small
Cause: The "sqlnet.crypto_seed" parameter in the SQLNET.ORA parameter file for Oracle Advanced Security is too small.
Action: Add more randomly-chosen text to it, perhaps using Network Manager.
TNS-12685: Native service required remotely but disabled locally
Cause: A native service is required by the remote process but native services have been disabled locally.
Action: Enable native services locally or change the configuration parameters on the remote host so that no native services are required.
TNS-12686: Invalid command specified for a service
Cause: An operation which does not exist was specified for a native service.
Action: This is a programming error and should not normally be visible to the user. If the error does appear, contact Oracle Customer Support.
TNS-12687: Credentials expired.
Cause: The credentials that are used to authenticate the user for the requested connection have expired.
Action: Renew your credentials. Refer to the documentation specific for your Network Authentication Adapter on how to do this.
TNS-12688: Login failed: the SecurID server rejected the new pincode
Cause: There are a number of reasons why the SecurID server would refuse a pincode:

- The user might not have permission to make up his own pincode.

- The pincode was either too short or too long. Valid pincodes consist of minimal four, but no more than eight characters.

- The pincode contains any non alphanumeric characters.

Action: Reexecute the operation and make sure to use a pincode that satisfies the above requirements. If the problem persists, turn on tracing at the Oracle Server side of the connection and examine the trace file for the exact error.
TNS-12689: Server Authentication required, but not supported
Cause: Server Authentication is required for this connection, but not supported by both sides of the connection.
Action: Make sure both sides of the connection have the correct version of Advanced Networking Option, and that the Authentication Adapter supports Server Authentication.
TNS-12690: Server Authentication failed, login cancelled
Cause: Server Authentication is required, but the server's credentials were found invalid by the client.
Action: Make sure that the server has a valid set of credentials. Refer to your authentication adapter specific documentation on how to do this.
TNS-12696: Double Encryption Turned On, login disallowed
Cause: The user is using a Secure Protocol Adapter that has Encryption turned ON as well as ANO Encryption.
Action: Turn OFF either ANO Encryption or the Protocol Adapter Encryption if possible. Refer to Oracle Advanced Security Administrator's Guide on how to do this.
TNS-12699: Native service internal error
Cause: An internal error occurred in the native services component.
Action: Enable tracing to determine the exact error. Contact Oracle Customer Support.
