Cause

Check the $ORACLE_HOME\Admin\Network directory to see whether the TNSNames.ora file exists. Although the agent does not use the information in this file to perform the Oracle scan, it still must reside in the expected directory in order for the agent to connect to the database instances.

Resolution

Create an empty tnsnames.ora file in the $ORACLE_HOME\Admin\Network directory.
