 Oracle 8i 8.1.6 on RedHat 6.1

Hello everybody,
I just installed Oracle 8i on Linux RedHat 6.1
(Oracle8i Enterprise Edition Release 8.1.6.1.0 - Production
PL/SQL Release 8.1.6.0.0 - Production
CORE 8.1.6.0.0 Production
TNS for Linux: Version 8.1.6.0.0 - Production
NLSRTL Version 3.4.0.0.0 - Production)

but I cannot connect towards other Oracle installations like 8.0.5.
Why?
The tnsnames.ora is the same I used for Oracle 8.0.5 on the same
machine.

Thanks to everybody.

Francesco

I noticed the same problem. It appears they have changed the
tnsnames.ora syntax. For instance under Oracle8 my entry for alias
mymachine used to be

mymachine =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS =
        (PROTOCOL= TCP)
        (Host= mymachine.domain.org)
        (Port= 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =
        (SID = ORCL))
  )      

Under Oracle 8i above alias didn't work at all. I ended up running
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/netasst which is the Net8 Assistant. The resulting
entry for alias mymachine ended up like this

MYMACHINE.DOMAIN.ORG =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS_LIST =
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = mymachine.domain.org)(PORT =
1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SID = ORCL)
    )
  )          

Give Net8 Assistant a shot.
