Hi all,

There seems to be an issue with having comments in the dbcheck.ini file, using # after specific tests really messed up things. Now everything is working fine, thanks to both Jeremey and Phil for your suggestions.

This is weird, and it got even more weird when I realized that dbcheck does not even try to communicate with the Oracle instances, it simply logs the error message and exits. I ran tcpdump to verify this and there is no connection attempt being made by dbcheck.

Try running the script through strace.
