server manager error
i seem to be getting this error when i try to invoke server manager on linux: 'error while trying to retreive text for error ORA-12545'
Anyone have any idea? Thanks in Advance.
If you are using oracle 8i or 9i then you cannot invoke server manager. The only way you can logon to the database is by using sqlplus. try sqlplus '/ as sysdba' and then you can run server manager commands.
well the problem there is that it cannot find the real text for that error message. Make sure ORACLE_HOME is set and your path.
what error 12545 really is is that the database you are connecting to doesnt seem to exist,
This is from oerr
12545, 00000, "Connect failed because target host or object does not exist"
// *Cause: The address specified is not valid, or the program being
// connected to does not exist.
// *Action: Ensure the ADDRESS parameters have been entered correctly; the
// most likely incorrect parameter is the node name. Ensure that the
// executable for the server exists (perhaps "oracle" is missing.)
// If the protocol is TCP/IP, edit the TNSNAMES.ORA file to change the
// host name to a numeric IP address and try again.
NO!! Of course you can use svrmgrl in 8i, have you tried it?

That's true you can use server mgr in oracle 8i....tend to forgot. I agree to setting up the Oracle_home for the ora-12545 error first if your are not on 9i.With 9i you should try sqlplus first.
