I am running 8.1.5 on NT. I had two databases (test). I wanted to delete them and create a new database.

After delete, when I invoke SVRMGRL, it comes up with the dreaded 12560 error.

1. I set my Oracle_sid=prod at the dos prompt.
2. My registry entry is the same.

My tnsnames and listener have an entry for prod.

All I want to do is nomount the instanace and create a new database.

Thanks for your help.
