    Issue the command
    SET oracle_sid=yourservice_name
    in ur dos prompt.
    TNS Protocl adapter error is mostly due to the service name.
    IT should work once you sset the Oracle_sid

    Thanks.

    I created ORACLE service using command line
    oradim -new -sid trax51 -intpwd oracle -startmode AUTO -pfile=E:\orant\admin\inittrax51.ora

    I used:
    SET ORACLE_SID=trax51
    in command line, but when I am trying to start svrmgrl, I am getting error:
    ORA-12560:TNS: protocol adapter error

    Any ideas would be very appreciated.
    Thank you.
    Best wishes!

    Hi,

    In 8.1.7 svrmgrl is not available. You must use sqlplus:

    sqlplus sys/password@sid as sysdba

    If doesn't work try with another this:

    sqlplus "sys/password@sid as sysdba"

    The last i use with some remote applications because it doesn't work i don't know why (was Oracle directly who recommended to use).

    Hope this helps

    As it was stated a couple of times recently in this forum: SVRMGRL *is* available and fully supported in 8.1.7. You can use SQL*Plus for managing the database, but you still can use svrmgrl also.

    Thanks for the correction Jurij, I didn't know. I'm new in this forum and I didn't read.

    Best regards

    if you have set the ORACLE_SID ok, and your tnsnames is ok, then maybe there was a previous installation of ORACLE in your server and that you may need to edit some registry entry like oracle home, or oracle SID i'm not so sure.

    Did you try sqlplus "sys/change_on_install@sid as sysdba" ?

    Try it with " ".

    Thank you.
    Sounds like your DB server is not properly configured.
