Hi guys,

I am pretty new at solaris and oracle, right now i have oracle 11gr2 installed in my Solaris 10 machine.

I managed to create 2 databases with 2 different ORACLE_SID, (e.g. A & B)

my question is, is it possible to have both of this Databases mounted and opened??

here is the step i have done so far:

1. go to /ORACLE_HOME/bin

2. I started my one and only LISTENER - ./lsnrctl start LISTENER

3. ORACLE_SID=A

4. ./sqlplus / as sysdba

5. SQL>STARTUP

Everything went well, until i set another ORACLE_SID (in another terminal) to ORACLE_SID=B, and when i tried to start it up using SQLPLUS, i get this "Segmentation Fault - core dumped".

It seems like i start the 2nd database wrongly, is there proper way to do this? i need the 2 databases (SID A & SID B) to be running concurrently. thanks

Do not just explain what you did and got, SHOW us: copy and paste your session (inline, in text, NO image or screen shot).

Before, 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.
Also always post your Oracle version, with 4 decimals.

Regards
Michel

Is SDB3 a 11.2 database?
Check alert.log if there is any message at this startup time.
Check trace directory if there is any trace file generated at this startup time.

Michel

Would also be nice to see what the contents of the alert log for the other instance that faulted shows.
