ORA-12154: TNS: could not resolve service name

Insufficient permissions

Change the IBM Cognos 8 service so that it is not run under the local system account, but rather from a named account and restart the service. This facilitates things like the use of UNC paths to specify configuration settings, printing services, and other important features.The named account must be part of the administrators group or power users group for the local machine. The users group does not have sufficient rights to modify/start/stop services.
