Setting GLOBAL_NAMES to false to use dblink

I am trying to connect to a remote database with dblink. I am getting following error: ORA-02085: database link DVOA002.WORLD connects to PROA002.WORLD. The solution that I found is: There is a parameter in init.ora called GLOBAL_NAMES. If you change it to false, you can do your database link and it will work. Are there any other solutions? What if the GLOBAL_NAMES need to be set to true?

If the GLOBAL_NAMES need to be set to true, then you must create a database link with the same name as the database to which it connects.
