I'm trying to create a 9i database. I've created the instance using the oradim utility.
then I connect to sql using sqlplus /nolog
when I try to do connect / as sysdba or
connect sys/passwd@dbname as sysdba, it gives me an error either saying service handle not initialised or invalid username/password.
Can you please let me know where I'm going wrong.
This is oracle188.8.131.52 on win2000.
thanks a lot
