Salman,

Check this

This error will come if Listener is not up or problem in tnsnames or database is not up.

1.Check the listener status by executing lsnrctl status

To check the listener status
Quote:
Go to start>Run>cmd>lsnrctl status

2.check the tnsnames entry is proper t not by
tnsping INSTANCENAME

To check the tnsnames
Quote:
Go to start>Run>cmd> tnsping <SID>

3.Check the database is up r not by checking the service in windows
Quote:
Go to Control panel>Services and Devices
Check whether OracleServiceORCL is RUNNING or Not.



Regards
Srini...

srinivas,

when i am executing lsnrctl status at dos prompt it says 'lsnrctl status' is not recognised as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file,Same with the commands that you have mentioned.

And in control panel there is nothing like "Services and Devices"
Pls srinivas i know i m doing something wrong but pls try to bear with me.I m not able to start still.

TNS-12560 : TNS :PROTOCOL ADAPTER ERROR
TNS-00511 : NO LISTENER
32-BIT WINDOWS ERROR :2 :NO SUCH FILE OR DIRECTORY

TNS-12560 : TNS :PROTOCOL ADAPTER ERROR
TNS-00511 : NO LISTENER

and when i used tnsping tcm -

Salman,

Don't be panic...where did you give the command lsnrctl status .You install oracle in c: drive or d: drive doesn't matter,lsnrctl status should work when you execute that command in the command propmt.Can you check whether in services, oracle is up or not.

Go to Controlpanel>Administrative Tools>services.
or
Type services.msc in run

Check whether OracleServiceORCL is Running or not.


Thanks
Srini...

Did you actually create a database, or just install the software?
search your filesystem for a file called system.dbf

no sample schema but when i install the database version aren't some of the database already created??
like dept,emp??
the only problem i am facing is that the oracle service is not running in my administrative tools/services and i am not able to find a solution to that.No other problem is there!

Can somebody just tell me how to start oracle service?

If you dont have database its useless.


Create database before starting service.


Use DBCA For database creation.

In run dialog type DBCA and create database with sample schema then emp and dept would be there.

Did you read the documentation I posted?
Of course, no!

No, I never was like you.
I always follow the advice of my seniors.
When I was a kid, didn't know a word and ask my father what it means, you know what? My dad gave me the dictionary, that's all.
Now not only I know what the word means but I know how to find the meaning of ANY word.

If you read the doc I posted you will now know much more than you do when some try (and fail) to explain you something when you don't know the basics.

It took me just one post from you to know that this will be an endless topic.
Read the basics, understand the basics, learn the basics then you can go further.
Until you do that, it will be useless to try to explain you something.
Maybe today, tomorrow, in a week or a month, DreamzZ will come that you start your database (by the way do you have one?) but you will still not understand why and next time you will come back here with the same problem.

Michel

and michel another thing is that if i had to read the whole of the document why would i come to the experienced people here with big mind??
by the way my lectures are started in college and i dont have that much time to read these 150-200 pages just for the sake of starting oracle!
i have other subjects too to concentrate upon!

Well, it's up to you.
I prefer to be the one that knows or knows how to know by himself.
You prefer to be the one that asks.
