environment variable ORACLE_SID not defined. please define it.
ive tried set ORACLE_SID=test but seem to be at stand still
i apologize to any if this question has been solved, but i did a search and found nothing. do to reading the not from STICKY i apologize again for possibley repeating this question
youd ont say what you are doing, how you set it and how you ensure it is set, what os you are on, what version of oracle you are on.
in fact any information whatsoever
did you try
bash# export ORACLE_SID=dbname
bash# set ORACLE_SID=dbaname
verify all ur ora env variables
bash#env | grep ORA
if yes then
check ur init"sid".ora and create dbscript has the same name as ur ORACLE_SID and check the db_name paramter has the same name as ur ORACLE_SID
People with goals know where they are going
