Hi everyone,

My background is with Oracle 10g on Linux. I'm now looking to get an Oracle 9i and 10g install to coexist on a Windows server.

I was successful on installing each into their own ORACLE_HOME and had a single 10g listener accepting connections for each of my 9 & 10 databases I had created.

Then I rebooted.

Now the 10g listener and instance starts up fine, but 9i refuses. I tried setting my environment manually (ORACLE_HOME to the 9i install, ORACLE_SID appropriately, updating the path) and use SQLPLUS to start up the database, but I receive a ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error occurred.

Restarting the service through Windows Service Manager just throws a generic error that the service wouldn't start. The Event Log didn't yield anything useful either.

I had set up a separate directory to hold my net files using TNS_ADMIN, but I've also tried un-setting this and recreating these files using the Oracle 9 netca. Although... I'm not sure why the net files should have to get involved since I'm logging in locally.

Any help will be very welcome!

Hi,

You should stop your oracle service and start again.

I had set up a separate directory to hold my net files using TNS_ADMIN, but I've also tried un-setting this and recreating these files using the Oracle 9 netca. Although... I'm not sure why the net files should have to get involved since I'm logging in locally.

First you should set TNS_ADMIN for oracle 10g home not oracle9i.

then through netca ( oracle10g) create service for oracle 9i.

try and let us know

regards
Taj

I wasn't very clear about this. Looking in service manager, my OracleServiceORA092SE is not running at all. When I right-click and say start, Windows throws a generic service could not start error.

I have tried stopping all running Oracle services and then starting up this service but the result is the same.


First you should set TNS_ADMIN for oracle 10g home not oracle9i.

I actually have my TNS_ADMIN variable pointing to a directory of it's own separate from either of these installs where I have my sqlnet.ora, tnsnames.ora, and listener.ora file.

In the troubleshooting process I tried unsetting this variable and setting all other variables to my 9i install and running netca, but this didn't work either.

I hadn't tried using the 10g netca, but I did just now and it offers no change.


Thanks,

-- Mike
