Hi All,

I have been trying to upgrade my personal laptop with 11G from 10G.

Since I didn't had any important data, so i removed 10G and tried to go for a fresh install of 11G.

Below are the entries of my files:

Listener.ora
# listener.ora Network Configuration File: C:\app\Nik\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\NETWORK\ADMIN\listener.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = ORCL.WORLD)
      (ORACLE_HOME = C:\app\Nik\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1)
      (SID_NAME = ORCL)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
      (ENVS = "EXTPROC_DLLS=ONLY:C:\app\Nik\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\bin\oraclr11.dll")
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (GLOBAL_DBNAME = Oracle8)
      (ORACLE_HOME = C:\app\Nik\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1)
      (SID_NAME = ORCL)
    )
  )

LISTENER =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = Nik-Laptop)(PORT = 1521))
  )

ADR_BASE_LISTENER = C:\app\Nik

      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = Nik-Laptop)(PORT = 1521))
    )
    (CONNECT_DATA =
      (SERVICE_NAME = ORCL.WORLD)
    )
  )

If i start the database in nomount it doesn't give any error.

Once I try to mount it, it gives the following error:

SQL> alter database mount
2 ;
alter database mount

ERROR at line 1:
ORA-00205: error in identifying control file, check alert log for more info

ORA-00205: error in identifying control file, check alert log for more info
 *Cause:  The system could not find a control file of the specified name and
           size.
 *Action: Check that ALL control files are online and that they are the same
         files that the system created at cold start time.

Regards
Michel

Restore them from a backup or use CREATE CONTROLFILE statement.

It is a new created database. I m unable to find any ctl file in the directory structure.

Could you please suggest if I should recreate the new database?
If yes, could you please provide me with the relevant steps for removal and creating a new one.

Thanks and Regards,
Nik

Do you upgrade an existent database or do you create a new database?

If you deleted the database why do you try to start it?
Create a new one before, using dbca.

Michel

Thanks Michel for all your inputs..

I removed the Database and created a new one using Database configuration Assistant.

Now its working fine as expected.

TNS for 32-bit Windows: Version 11.2.0.1.0 - Production

A small query though, while connecting from cmd prompt i am able to do it successfully as sysdba and any other user like hr

But while connecting using sys or system and providing the Oracle SID it gives me the following error:

You do not need SQL*Net (and @ connection) for a local database, just set ORACLE_SID (and ORACLE_HOME).
