Last updated on JANUARY 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Net Services - Version to 12.2 BETA1 [Release 12.1 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Client connections including OEM report ORA-12514 error messages.

OEM will not be able to properly report the instance up/down status after the USE_SID_AS_SERVICE parameter is added.


 The USE_SID_AS_SERVICE parameter has been added to the listener.ora file.  Note that the way to confirm this is to review the listener.ora file.  It is not reported by any lsnrctl command.
