I always got this error when I remotely logon with MS' Terminal Services and launched SVRMGRL. It work well if you run SVRMGRL at local box. My question is 'is there any other tools is samilar as Terminal Services but can launch SVRMGRL properly?' My environment is Oracle8.1.6 EE/Win2k.
Any opinion will be appreciated.

it explains why this doesn't work, unfortunately, I cannot help you since I have very little knowledge about M$ products, sorry ...
If you are using Win NT then you have to define ORACLE_SID into the registry to avoid the protocol adapter error.
Here define a string ORACLE_SID and give it the name of your instance
