I am trying to create a 8.1.7 database on a Windows 2000 machine. I get a ORA-03113 error during the service startup. The sample error is given below.

Note that these are the first 2 statements in the database creation script.

C:\>C:\oracle\ora81\bin\oradim -new -sid JSH -intpwd oracle -startmode auto -pfi
le "C:\oracle\admin\JSH\pfile\initJSH.ora"

C:\>C:\oracle\ora81\bin\oradim -startup -sid JSH -starttype srvc,inst -usrpwd or
acle -pfile "C:\oracle\admin\JSH\pfile\initJSH.ora"
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel
