I was wondering if anyone have seen this problem:
I'm running Oracle 8.1.7 on NT 4.0, sp6a. Oracle Service and Agent are set up to start automatically.
1. Shut down the db.
2. Shut down the server.
3. Boot up the server.
4. Log on to the domain.
5. After about 2 min., I get an error message: "One of the srvices failed at startup, check the Event Log". It turns out to be the Oracle Agent. The error message in the Event Viewer is: "Oracle Agent hung on startup". When I check the services, the Agent starts up right away after the login. It stays up and running.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Did you try stopping and restarting from Services or from lsnrctl command line ? Try stopping and restarting and see.
Thanks for reply.
I don't have to do start service from lsnrctl since the service gets started automatically when NT boots up.
I'm just wondering what that anoying error message means and how to get rid of it...
I've got exactly the same pb with 8.1.7 agent/server at boot: error message, event log saying that agent does not start, but it starts anyway (maybe a little later?)
No solution though, sorry...
Did you folks try using the net to try starting and stopping the agent. In windows, using the lsnrctl had no effect on starting the listener. You would use the net command to start and stop applications on the windows. Here is how you use the net to start and stop the agent
c:> net start OracleAgent80
c:> net stop OracleAgent80
To find the list of services that you can start or stop,
c:> net help services
To get help on command try:
c:> net help command
To read help page one at a time
c:> net help command | more
Here are some of the commands that can be useful to you.
NET CONFIG SERVER
NET CONFIG WORKSTATION
If you have any problems, please let us know. Hope this would help you folks.
Life is a journey, not a destination!
I have no problem starting the Agent eitehr way (through Services or NetStart). My problem is the error message I'm getting from NT even though the Agent is started. I know that the agent is runnign bcause I can ping it.
Is it one of these things we should blame Bill Gates for :-)?
