Logged in as the oracle user if I issue a tnsping it works:

-bash-3.00$ tnsping mm70a

TNS Ping Utility for Solaris: Version 11.1.0.6.0 - Production on 10-DEC-2010 02:39:58

Copyright (c) 1997, 2007, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Used parameter files:
/export/home/oracle/product/11.1.0/db_3/network/admin/sqlnet.ora


Used TNSNAMES adapter to resolve the alias
Attempting to contact (DESCRIPTION = (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = 149.235.72.31)(PORT = 1524)) (CONNECT_DATA = (SERVER = DEDICATED) (SID = mm70a)))
OK (20 msec)


If I try the same from another user on the same server I get the following:

bash-3.00$ tnsping

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have looked and tried everything I can think of and still can't get it to work.
BTW, from the client I can log in using username/password if I set the sid in the env but username/password@SID does not work.

Thanks,
AI
