2153975 - Connection to RAC failing with ORA-12154

Symptom

You have a RAC cluster, a service is configured using srvctl for instance specific connection. If you run a lsnrctl status, you will see the service listed:

Service "P8S_D01" has 1 instance(s).
  Instance "P8S1", status READY, has 1 handler(s) for this service...

When trying to connect an R3 system to a RAC database instance, the R3trans -d fails and you see the error bellow in the trans.log:
