I had 2 databases on my d/b server..of which 1 I removed....
Now I just shutdoen my database.....and whn i try to again mount it..it says that it cannot find the parameter file of the datatabse I deleted..
why would it need the parameter file of the deleted db when i want o start the xisting database?
i did an immediate shut down..it just seemed to hang..
then i just used cntl c to exit...
and again ewhen i connect to server manger an dtry to shutdown it says...not connect to oracle..and when i try to connect it says..shutdowen immediate in progress.....
just open another session of svrmgrl, and do a shutdown abort, then restart your db (for it to make a crash recovery), and just shutdown immediate again to have a clean stop (it should not hang since you'll have nobody connected to your database)
Originally posted by helpme Another questionI did the same..it wouked the fisrt time
But now when i give shutdoenabort...
then startup it gives me
ORA-01102: cannot mount database in EXCLUSIVE mode
wahst this and what o i do?
When you shutdown abort, you guarantee that you will have to do instance recover upon the next startup. If you are going to mount your database in exclusive mode make sure you shutdown immediate or normal first.
