Execute and post (copy and paste your sqlplus session) the result of the following commands for both connection:
select instance_name, status from v$instance;
select name, open_mode from v$database;

So you are not connected to the same database.
Post "env|sort"

Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code, use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.

Note that you execute:
sqlplus sys/pwd@sid as sysdba

When you said in the previous post it was:
sqlplus sys/pwd as sysdba

They are 2 DIFFERENT things.

Regards
Michel

I am re-explaining my problem

I have installed oracle11gr2. When i start the database with the "dbstart" command and logon as "sqlplus / as sysdba" it always connected to an idle instance while the database is up and runing and i am also able to login via SqlDeveloper on Client machine with other created users.

However if i stop the database and start the database again with

sqlplus /nolog
conn / as sysdba
startup

then

i am able to connect successfully with "sqlplus / as sysdba"

It seems that dbstart command starting the database in such a way that it does not allow internal connection as after starting the database if i logon as "sys/pwd@tns[/email] as sysdba" then it connects to database successfully. Can somebody explain why i am not able to login as "sqlplus / as sysdba" when starting the database with "dbstart" command.

Thanks and appreciated

I am re-explaining your problem:
"sqlplus / as sydba" connects to your local database define by the variable ORACLE_SID.
"sqlplus sys/psw@tns[/email] as sysdba" connects to the database defined by the service name "tns".

So you are not connected to the same database.
