I need to connect to an Oracle database from a perl script, it works in my tests and when using sqlplus, but not in production. This is a summary of the situation:
Oracle 11g XE (126.96.36.199.0) : (Test environment) sqlplus : OK perl : OK Oracle 11g (188.8.131.52.0) : (Production environment) sqlplus : OK perl : ERROR
The error reported is:
Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
I have triple checked the connection settings and are not mistaken.
- Test Server: Windows Server 2012
- Production Server: Windows Server (Unknown version)
- Client: Ubuntu 18.04 x64
- Perl: 5.26.1
- SQL*Plus: 184.108.40.206.0
#!/usr/bin/perl use DBI; $driver = "Oracle"; $sid = "db_sid"; $host = "192.168.0.1"; $dsn = "DBI:$driver:sid=$sid;host=$host"; $dbh = DBI->connect($dsn, "user", "password");
Note: I won't be able to test or execute anything in the production environment until next month.
What could be the issue?
