openrowset - problem in reconnecting to oracle

Hi Guys ,
We are trying to use openrowset function to connect from
sqlserver 2000 to oracle 10g database . If we provide a correct oracle
database name , it works fine but if we somehow provide a wrong
database name , it keeps on failing even if we correct the db name.
This problem is only corrected if we reboot the server itself! Looks
like sqlserver is caching this value somewhere and keeps on picking it
from there ..
What can we do to avoid this problem? Are there any registry settings
to change or some other setting to do in sqlserver.

Everything else from that box is working fine - sql*plus/odbc/ole db
using dts etc..
Has anyone else have faced similar issue ?
Any help will be much appreciated .
