Thread: Installed Dev/Des6i, now svrmgrl wont work.

  1. #1
    Hi there,
    ok, Platform is NT4, SP5.
    Database is 8.1.7
    PC 256 Mb ram, 800Mhz, 6+gb free.

    I have an 8.1.7 database on this machine. I installed Dev & Designer 6i into a new oracle home as instructed by the install guide.

    Now when i run svrmgrl it fails to work properly, even after I use the Oracle Home Selector for the installer to point at the 8i home of the database.

    In Svrmgrl I get:
    Microsoft(R) Windows NT(TM)

    C:\>set oracle_sid=o01d

    SVRMGR> connect internal
    SVRMGR> startup
    ORA-01081: cannot start already-running ORACLE - shut it down first
    SVRMGR> shutdown
    ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

    In sqlplus I get similar when I connect internal

    LRM-00109: could not open parameter file
    ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters

    Any ideas?

    you can do one thing if it is NT Server Stop the Oracle instance services and then again start the service that's all ok

    if it is Linux, Solaris, Unix kill the process Or Restart the server it work's fine...

    and please check once again The init.ora parameters...

    In the windows env, try stopping and starting through the services and it would fix. The server manager option was about to be removed.

    Try first shutting down as

    shutdown abort and then starting it again. One other thing is instead of connecting through the server manager, try connecting as

    sqlplus sys/passwd as sysdba

    SQL> shutdown immediate
    SQL> startup

    or if it was a fresh install, then try

    shutdown abort

    Hope this would help you.

    Life is a journey, not a destination!

    Hi guys,
    yes, you are of course right. I got so caught up in thinking about multiple-homes, and why dev/designer should affect svrmgrl that I missed the obvious thing of trying a shutdown abort. After that, the db and svrmgrl acted normally... I guess that the dev/des thikng was just a red herring :-)

    ta lots,
