Oracle ORA-21561 : OID generation failed

Giving below error when trying to connect from Oracle client

“ORA-21561 : OID generation failed”

ERROR:

sqlplus <test_user>/<test_user_password>@<database_name>
xxxxx xxxx
xxxx xxxx
ERROR:
ORA-21561 : OID generation failed

Enter user-name: <username>/<password> @ <tns connect string>

SOLUTION:

Then the problem is most likely in the client machine hosts file.
Check that there is client machine fully qualified name and short name in the client machine hosts file. If these are missing you’ll get ORA-21561 errors when trying to connect server.
Example:

127.0.0.1            localhost.localdomain      localhost
10.160.116.10   dbamasters.oracle.com     dbamasters

Thank You !!
