I am trying to create a database connection from ArcGIS desktop 10.1 to Oracle server using easy connect syntax
So, from ArcCatalog I use "Add database connection"
then I chose Oracle in database platform

then in the instance I write down

myserver: port/serviceid

so I write


but it gives me ora-12154 TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier

I thought by using the easy connect I don't have to worry about TNS names
