TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error

TNS-00525: Insufficient privilege for operation

Linux Error: 1: Operation not permitted

The log error message shows that it has something to do with permissions, and finally we found a hidden message.

The /var/tmp/.oracle directory is special, if oracle does not have permission to operate this directory, oracle users cannot access the /var/tmp/.oracle folder.

The method is simple: chmod 777 /var/tmp/.oracle

and you’re good to go.
