ORACLE_SID not defined ????
I am trying to start the dbconsole on Oracle 10g installed on Solaris . I type /export/ORACLE_HOME/bin/emctl start dbconsole
I get the response "ORACLE_SID not defined" I have defined it in my home .profile file as follows:
ORACLE_SID=Jacob export $ORACLE_SID
Is my syntax correct?
Also I was advised to define it in the .bashrc file. I cannot find any .bashrc file, so I created one and entered the following:
ORACLE_HOME = /export/ORACLE_HOME export $ORACLE_HOME
ORACLE_SID =Jacob export $ORACLE_SID
Can anyone offer some help?
Re: ORACLE_SID not defined ???
Hey thanks for the followup. I removed the .bashrc file and cleaned up the .profile syntax as you suggested. However, I am still getting the error the same as before. Still says that the ORACLE_SID is not defined and that I need to define it. It is too vague an error message and shoule inform someone like me just where the heck I should define it!@#$%^& Other than in the .profile file, what about the oratab file? When I orifinally looked at it yesterday there was no definitions written to it, so I manually entered the following:
Any other suggestions?
