Hello All,

We are implementing a 2 node cluster database . I did create the database on the first node successfully . For enabling the second node when I'm starting the ASM instance its giving me as :

[oracle@node2 ~]$ export ORACLE_SID=+ASM2
[oracle@node2 ~]$ sqlplus / as sysdba

SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.1.0 - Production on Wed Aug 20 17:55:22 2008

Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle. All rights reserved.

Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> startup
ORA-01506: missing or illegal database name
SQL>


I dont understand what is the problem . I did enabled the cluster_database=true ,created the undo tablespace and the second thread also and bounced the database also on the fist node.

On the second node , all the services are up and running (CRS Services)

Please help me out .

Regards,
Raj

Error:
ORA-01506: missing or illegal database name
Cause:
You tried to execute an ALTER DATABASE command without a specified database name, and there is no value specified for the DB_NAME initialization parameter in the initialization file.
Action:
The options to resolve this Oracle error are:
Either specify a database name in the ALTER DATABASE command or set a value for the DB_NAME parameter in the initialization file.



and also check alertlog file for more information.

But i guess in the ASM instance pfile we dont specify any database name .

The error is not matching with the given error no. message .


As i told you I'm starting the ASM instance and not the Database instance.

Please help me out.

Raj

Why not just post your file exactly, instead of explaining what you did.
While it is certainly possible to create instances manually, for beginners i strongly recommend DBCA.
Use DBCA to identify the RAC nodes and create ASM instances in both nodes followed by creating RAC databases.

I guess old age has finally caught up with me & I am officially blind.

I can not see "instance_type=asm" pfile details in post above.

You can lead folks to knowledge, but you can't make them think.
