Dear Friends,

Machine Type: Intel P4 with 845g Motherboard
OS Type: Windows Server 2003.
Database: Oracle 8i for Windows NT and 2000 .

I am trying to start the Oracle 8i server automatically with the machine boot up. As machines will be handled by users only in remote locations , Its important to start the database automatically . But not happening.

TNS Listners start automatically , status showed in the Services Applet as starting .

If we start database by going to svrmgrl , connect internal , then startup , it works fine .

How to start database automatically . Please help .
