Problem with dblinks generated from Oracle Warehouse Builder

Hi, I am using Oracle Warehouse Builder 9i to implement my data warehouse. Normally, it generates dblinks containing a TNS reference: create database link <hostname>@<connector> connect to <user> identified by <password> using '<hostname>'; But sometimes it generates dblinks containing a TNS *definition* instead: create database link <hostname>@<connector> connect to <user> identified by <password> using '(DESCRIPTION=(ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP) (HOST=<hostname>)(PORT=<port>))) (CONNECT_DATA=(SERVICE_NAME=<service>)) )'; There are problems with the latter definition, but I have trouble finding how to avoid generating it. Oracle Support has so far not come up with a solution. Has anyone else had this problem? Regards, Kai Quale University of Oslo

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

But what is the actual problem ?
I use this form for my database links to be not dependent on tnsnames.ora stuff (we have several UNIX hosts with several Oracle instances and dummy DBAs who never keeps Oracle networking files in sync)

    There have been problems with SELECTs joining local and remote tables across these dblinks. We are hoping the problems will be solved by a coming upgrade to OWB 9.2.0.4... Rgds, Kai
