    8i won't Start from DBA Studio

    I have installed Oracle 8i on a development server running RedHat 7.2. This server should be similar to a data server in production.

    From DBA Studio, I have no problems with opening or shutting down the 8i database on the production data server.

    However, after connecting to Oracle on the development server, when I try to Open the database, it fails during the "Starting up" stage.

    Unfortunately, as a newbie, I have no idea how to resolve this, or even where to start from.

    Any suggestions would be most appreciated!

    I can't locate an Alert.log (or alert.log) even after running locate -u.

    Any other suggestions please?
