    Angry Remove Oracle-DB from Windows

    Hi,

    my installation of Oracle 8.1.7.0.0 crashed during the installation because of ORA-12560. Now I got a Database that can not been connected. The db service seems to run. When I try to start the listener it stops because there is no Database.

    How can I remove this half installation of db on Windows?
    The second question is: How can I avoide this error in future?

    Thank you for your help in advance!

    Christian

    start up dbca - it should be able to remove it.

    You usually get that error when the service isnt running - and a listener wont stop because of no database - you have a different problem there

    The dbca could not connect to the instance. I wanted to check the status of the instance but I could not connect to as well.
    ORACLE_SID is set ...

    Can I remove the DB manually by removing the db files.
    -> I found a tool to remove the Oracle- and Listener-Service as well. Could this work?

    Thank you,

    Christian

    Hi.

    These are pretty agressive methods, but they work for me:

    Hi Tim,

    I will go this way because there is an (maybe only for my) misteriose thing on that system: I found an ora81- And Ora81-Folder in the same Directory under Win2003. Is that possible? Maybe my database installation script took the first (empty) Ora81 directory an failed therefore?

    The Oracle- and the Listener-Services are installed but NO db file is created in the db directory...

    I installed Oracle many times but this never happened to me.

    Maybe my fault is, I installed the Oracle software not by myself ...

    Greetings from Christian
