Thread: ORA-01034

    All -

    I am not quite sure why, but all of a sudden, my database stopped working (8.1.5 on Solaris 7) and now I get error ORA-01034 when I try to run:
    %>sqlplus username/password@servicename

    I have tried setting TWO_TASK, increasing virtual memory, restarting the database, and restarting the machine.

    I also noticed that in listener.trc, I get the following message whenever I try to connect:

    nstimarmed: no timer allocated

    I am not sure if this is significant, but am now out of ideas. Any thoughts?

    On the other hand, you have different fingers.

    Does this happen when you connect on the server machine itself or from a client .

    It seems that you have a problem at the session level , if you have this problem happening from a client machine try to use an Oracle client from the same version or higher 8i Ver. 1 or later.

    Mainly Two task problem happen if there is a problem with the listener of from a conflict between SQL/Net8 networking layer.

    Check if you have lately altered the listener file and if so try to resotor a backup and reload the listener .

    Good Luck

    This happens when I am trying to connect from the localhost. The only change made to the system recently was to force 100M/full-duplex in /etc/system. I changed that back to how it was previously, but to no avail. I have checked, rechecked, and checked again the listener.ora,tnsnames.ora,etc... and there appears to be no problems.

    I have tried setting TWO_TASK, but that does not help either.

    One interesting note, is that when I run

    %>lsnrctl test ORCL.world

    I get the following:

    TNS-12504: TNS:listener was not given the SID in CONNECT_DATA

    I have verified tnsnames.ora, and CONNECT_DATA is in there:

    ORCL.world =
    (ADDRESS =
    (HOST =
    (PORT = 1520)

    What else can I look for to resolve this problem?
