ENVIRONMENT

  • Empower 3 FR3 or any upgrade that goes through Empower 3 FR3 (FR2 to FR4 upgrade)

CAUSE

The Tnsnames.ora file is incorrect for the server stack.

FIX or WORKAROUND

  1. Go to the X:\empower\oracle\oracle12cClient\Network\Admin directory (where X:\ s the Empower Program Drive).
  2. Copy the TNSNAMES.ORA and place it in X:\Empower\Oracle\Oracle12c\Network\Admin directory.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • Empower uses the TNSNAMES.ORA file located in X:\Empower\oracle\oracle12cClient\Network\Admin directory.
  • Waters Database Manager uses the TNSNAMES.ORA located in X:\Empower\Oracle\Oracle12c\Network\Admin directory.
  • The two should be the same file.
  • Empower 3 FR2 did not have a tnsnames.ora in the Oracle12c directory. The upgrade process did not create a valid tnsnames.ora file and the error generated on saving the backup options in WDM.  PCS 56239 open in R&D.
