Hi,
I Have Installed oracle 10g database (Enterprise Edition)
On Sun Solaris (5.10) machine
(in oracle User)
installation was successful
But database is not getting started

I think the problem is with the PFILE because in my:

/export/home/oracle/dbs/

I don't have:

spfile.ora
init$ORACLE_SID.ora
spfile$ORACLE_SID.ora

only I have:

init.ora
spfileorcl.ora

but my $ORACLE_SID it was ORA10GR2 and I change to $ORACLE_SID=ORCL

and i have two questions:
First, how affect that change??

and second, how start the database??

please guide me... thnks...

Santti...

Why did you do this?

Is the database up or down now?

the change in ORACLE_SID I did because I don't have the file spfile.ora and i think that I did declare bad the ORACLE_SID....

and the database is down now...

Those commands work on Linux.
I don't have a Solaris system to test against.
You need to find the functional equivalent for them on Solaris.

Simply put are the any 'spfile' files or init<SID>.ora files anywhere else on this system?
If so, what are their timestamps & contents?

Please realize that *nix (Including Solaris) is a case sensitive OS

as user "oracle" or who ever own the $ORACLE_HOME software directory tree do:

ORACLE_SID=orcl
export ORACLE_SID
sqlplus
/ as sysdba
startup
exit

Either stay with MS Access or learn how to RTFM & follow installation procedures

Quote:
ORA-09925: Unable to create audit trail file
Cause: ORACLE was not able to create the file being used to hold audit trail records.
Action: Check the UNIX error number for a possible operating system error. If there is no error, contact ORACLE customer support.

Michel
