Hi

I installed Oracle 9i on XP with some files missing during the process of installation, nevertheless it is installed.
Now when I try to run SQL* Plus it generates following errors


Ora-01034 Oracle not available
Ora-27101 Shared memory realm does not exists

Can any body suggest me solutions.
As i am installing oracle first time but i know about the configurations .

any suggestion would be appreciate.
Thanks in advance

First of all look at windows services to see if main oracle services ara running (like the listener, database service)
then :
Open Sql plus
Try to login as : connect sys/password@yourdatabase as sysdba
type : 'startup open' to open the database
select status from v$instance; -- to see the status of the database.
Bye

Thankyou Salam,

I got it , the problem was as you expected that i did not started the instance , now i started by connecting as sysdba.
But when i quit the session and tried to relogin as scott/tiger
it is giving me error: Oracle initialization and shutdown in progress. will it come after some time or is it a serious problem.
Thankyou

Hi,

I am getting the same problem stating that Oracle Error: ORA-01034: Oracle Not Available.

The TNS Listener is not starting.

Have you tried what Littlefoot posted above? You could try this locally on the database server without having to start the listener. You don't mention it, but if you are on Windows, then ensure that the Oracle Window's service is started prior to connecting to the database.

For the listener not starting, do you see any errors in the listener.log file? Has the listener ever started?
