How can I tell what service is being requested in the connect descriptor of a keyfile?

How can I tell what service is being requested in the connect descriptor of a keyfile? I am running Business Objects 6.5.1 on a Windows laptop.

When I try to bring up Business Objects or Supervisor or Designer for a particular keyfile, I receive the error:

Server Error (USR0057)

N/AORA-12514:TNS: listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor12514

It's possible that the keyfile is obsolete, it may request connection to an obsolete database. I'd like to know.

Is there a way I can learn what database the keyfile is trying to reach?

    6.5.1 ???

    How are you able to run it on a modern OS ?


    You can enable trace in Oracle client and see which DB it tries to reach.
    Also, if you're still able to run it, that means you have unlimited license, so that means you can just create new bomain.key.
