Error while registering Oracle database for Server 10.2

I am getting the following error when I try to register the database on my new ArcGIS Server instance.
"The connection property set was missing a required property or the property value was unrecognized"


I was reading other forum posts from 10.1, and I have checked the following:
1.) Oracle 64bit and 32bit clients are installed on my server
2.) The 64bit client is listed first on the PATH system variable
3.) I created a new system variable TNS_ADMIN that points to the folder containing the tnsnames.ora file.
4.) I have stopped/started the ArcGIS Server service.
5.) I also restarted the entire server.

Other things...
6.) I am doing the database registering from a ArcCatalog desktop application also on the same server
7.) It is a virtual server.

Even after all of that, I am still getting the error. Any ideas on how to fix this?

Thanks, --Rick
