Hi,

We have a problem where attempting to connect to an Oracle database we get the error message:

ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress



I've tried the following solution

1- SQL> shutdown abort
O/P- ORACLE instance shut down.



2- SQL> start database step by step
O/P- SP2-0310: unable to open file "database.sql"



3- SQL> startup nomount
ORACLE instance started.



But everytime I attempt to login to SQLPlus I get the 01033 error message, and no login takes place


Any ideas?????

startup nomount does not open database. invoke just
startup;

and then perform operation.

ARe you on windows or linux?
If on windows,go to task manager and kill the oracle process amd then try to start the instance.
If on linux, type ps -a and kill all tthe oracle processes and then try.

Do you know actually what is the purpose of "start" command in SQL*PLUS?

Yeah, there's a bit missing after the startup nomount command, but what I meant to say is that I cannot get past the login to run that

which service do I stop in the task manager? The problem is I know nothing about Oracle (dba is on holiday!!) so any help is greatfully received


Thanks

Click on the process option,search for oracle.exe and kill it.
After that start your instance, from the command prompt type
net start "yourservicename"
and then log in sqlplus

go to services.msc window and stop oracle services and again start.

start --- > run --- > services.msc <<hit enter>>
then connect with sys user to sqlplus and startup your database.
