I had a hardware failure on one of my old legacy servers that runs Windows NT 4 and an old Oracle 8.0.5 install.
The solution was to move everything to a virtual machine. Now I've imaged the machine and loaded it onto the new box and now I'm getting odd errors out of Oracle. First, the listener would not start because of a line in the listener.ora referring to IPX/SPX. I was getting errors like this:
Attempted to listen on: (DESCRIPTION=(CONNECT_TIMEOUT=10)(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(Host=appserv2)(Port=1521)))
TNS-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
TNS-12560: TNSrotocol adapter error
TNS-00515: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist
32-bit Windows Error: 1001: Unknown system error
and the port keeps going up by two each time, up to 4521. Is this still an Oracle issue or is it my Millennium application?
And I guess my overall question: Is there anything I need to be aware of when imaging a box running Oracle like this? The only thing that really changed was the network card, the physical one removed and the virtual one added. I've checked over all the hosts files and tcp/ip settings and I'm lost as to what is going on.
