In other 10.2 database where the global_name is nice <db name> (without the domain suffix) I have no such problems. I guess the fix is to get rid of the domain name from the global_name. Is there an easier solution than new set up of the database?
update props$ set value$='<name>' where name = 'GLOBAL_DB_NAME' ;
Obviously not supported :)
