TNS-12533: TNS:illegal ADDRESS parameters

Cause: An illegal set of protocol adapter parameters was specified. In some cases, this error is returned

when a connection cannot be made to the protocol transport.

Action: Verify that the destination can be reached using the specified protocol. Check the parameters

within the ADDRESS section of TNSNAMES.ORA. Legal ADDRESS parameter formats may be found in the Oracle

operating system specific documentation for your platform. Protocols that resolve names at the transport

layer (such as DECnet object names) are vulnerable to this error if not properly configured or names are misspelled.
