Did I ever get back to you on this, Carsten?

Anyway, most of this time it has to do the the Oracle naming services, 
ie sqlnet.ora and tnsnames.ora.  Often the installer put in a 
NAMES.DEFAULT_DOMAIN in the sqlnet.ora, but the name is unqualified in 

Usually there's like a sqlnet.log file generated when the name isn't 
being resolved properly.
