I have oracle 8i on Win NT in home pc.
I am able to startup the Database thru the NT services.
But if I do the startup from server manager, at the time of
giving the command
i am getting the error TNS:Protocol Adapter Error.
I have given my sid in the tnsnames.ora and the host
name is my ip address.
Is there any default ip address which can be given so that i can do a startup from the server manager or what can be the alternative host name other than the ip address.
Very NEW to ORacle isn't it?
Ok Follow the steps.
After creating the database successfully and running the req. scripts u r ready to enter into the db but u r not able to do and this is ur problem....
goto C prompt set oracle_sid = ABCD
(ABCD - your db sid)
It gives help or straightaway type this..
C:\oradim -new -sid ABCD -intpwd password -pfile filepath(This pfile is optional)
Run this if there is any error see the help by typing oradim
then goto svrmgr
Still u can not solve the problem then mail me and my mail id is firstname.lastname@example.org
