I have an existing Ubuntu 16.04LTS 64bit system that connects to Oracle 11g ( 64bit/Windows).

From that Linux machine I can connect to Oracle via sqlplus instantly, using sqlplus uid/pwd@tnsname

I just installed a Linux 18.04LTS, on which I installed the same oracle client and RPM header packages, prepared for 18.04 via alien package converter:

oracle-instantclient12.2-basiclite amd64 Oracle Instant Client Light package
oracle-instantclient12.2-devel amd64 Development headers for Instant Client.
oracle-instantclient12.2-sqlplus amd64 SQL*Plus for Instant Client.

Copied the same tnsnames, sqlnet and listener files, added same environment variables.

But. From the old machine the actual connection to the database in sqlplus takes about 0.5sec:

SQL*Plus: Release Production on Tue Apr 16 16:17:13 2019

Copyright (c) 1982, 2016, Oracle.  All rights reserved.
Connected to:
Oracle Database 11g Release - 64bit Production

And from the new one there is a pause of about 1 minute before displaying "Connected".

After connection is established, both sessions appear blazing fast when doing the queries.

I looked at the initial ideas regarding network and DNS resolution, but both machines are the same in this respect.

Is there anything Oracle serverside that could account for this?
