I took your script and ran it on my network. Obviously changing the host, SID, etc. Tcpdump confirmed that it connected to my oracle server.

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.
