You shut down your database so the service is no more active and so the listneer can't know it.
Locally connect, without listener, and you will be able to restart the database.
Generally speaking, alway locally connect to make maintenance on your database (but maybe for backup).

Michel

Connect to the server.
Set ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID, PATH environment variables.
Execute sqlplus.

when i shutdown the database then database windows service also get stopped.
but when i try startup the database , then database windows service should also be
started automatically, otherwise we can't startup databasa in MOUNT or NOMOUNT mode
(because now we restart the database windows service then the database restarted in NORMAL mode),
without connecting locally,
as you told that set ORACLE_SID,ORACLE_HOME....etc.

so i am asking that is there any other way to startup the database in MOUNT or NOMOUNT mode from local machine.

thanks again....

No, you have to first start the service.

If you stop the database using SQL statement "shutdown" it should not stop the service.
If it does then have a look at the Windows application event log there should be a message; post it.

"shutdown" alone waits for all connections to end.
Use "shutdown immediate" instead.

Now you have to abort the instance, restart it and shut down immediate it.

as you told:-

SQL> conn sys@testdb as sysdba
Enter password:
Connected.
SQL> shutdown abort;
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup;
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor
SQL> conn sys@testdb as sysdba
Enter password:
Connected.
SQL> shutdown immediate;
Database closed.
Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup;
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor
SQL>



and...




SQL> shutdown;
Database closed.
Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup;
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor
SQL>


now i have restart the windows service, then i become able to connect again....

SQL> conn sys@testdb as sysdba
Enter password:
Connected.
SQL> shutdown immediate;
Database closed.
Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup;
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor
SQL>


again i have to restart the windows service, then i become able to connect

SQL> conn sys@testdb as sysdba
Enter password:
Connected.
SQL> shutdown abort;
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup;
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor
SQL>



and for transactional:-


SQL> shutdown transactional;
Database closed.
Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> startup;
ORA-12514: TNS:listener does not currently know of service requested in connect
descriptor
SQL>



in all cases it throws service error.

thanks.....

You must be connected on the database server.
ALWAYS do your database maintenance on the database server.
