Hello,

I have installed Oracle 10g on SUN V240 running Solaris 10, and built two databases.
One of them is running fine, but the other one refused to start after I did an import from an export generated with an older release (Oracle 8.1.7).
After the import, I got ORA-39700 (database must be started in upgrade mode), so, I started it with startup upgrade and tried catupgrd.sql to fix this error.
Catupgrd.sql also refused to "upgrade" my DB, because of a version mismatch.
So, I decided to start again from scratch, dropped the entire database, cleaned up all Oracle directories, and re-created the DB. This worked, so, I did a shutdown immediate to ensure that everything's well, and now, I'm again unable to start the DB because of ORA-39700.
So it seems that there's something leftover somewhere from the old installation?!

Here's what I get when I try to start the DB:

sqlplus "/ as sysdba"

Post the exact output.

Hi,

thanks for the fast reply! I used exp/imp in interactive mode for the export, and when I faced the starting problems afterwards, I cleaned up my system and deleted the import log, so I can't post it, sorry...
But I tried catupgrd.sql again, and here's what I got:

And that's it. I also tried catalog.sql and catproc.sql, catalog.sql runs fine, but catproc.sql stops with the following error:

(and of course, the DB still refuses to start with ORA-39700).

Did you do a full import?
Usually, you are supposed to import only the custom schemas (users/schemas you created and not sys/system/dbsnmp etc).
And just for exp/imp, catupgrd.sql does not need to be run.
I would recomend to startover.
Import only the custom schema.
and by these last two statements
>>Datenbank mit MOUNT angeschlossen.
>>Datenbank ge÷ffnet.
I reckon the database is mounted and opened.

Hi Mahesh,

that's a good point, the next time, I will only import the schemas, and not the system stuff.
But, the problem at the moment is that I can't start over: I created the database again from scratch without importing anything, and now I get these errors - with "startup upgrade" I get the DB mounted and opened, but I can't start this newly created DB in normal mode. So I guess there's still something wrong, and maybe there's something lyin' around from the old setup, although I cleaned up oradata etc.

If it is a new 10g database, why are issuing startup upgrade?

It is supposed to be issued only after doing "some kind of upgrade".

Hi,

yes, that's clear: I was also wondering why I should upgrade a newly created database, but the DB refuses to start in normal mode, I always get ORA-39700 - and using startup upgrade was the only suggestion I've found, so I decided to give it a try.

post your environment. Values of
ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_BASE and PATH, contents of oratab file, your login.sql or glogin.sql .
I assume you do not have both versions in same Host.
Did you copy the oracle users profile (environment) from old server to new server?
Did you use DBCA to create database or manual options?
Try these logged into sql*plus( after startup upgrade, as there is no other option).
If you find something like this, that is a possible issue.
c > show com
compatibility version NATIVE
c > show sqlpluscompat
sqlpluscompatibility 8.1.7

you are supposed to see something like this
SQL> show com
compatibility version NATIVE
SQL> show sqlpluscompat
sqlpluscompatibility 10.2.0

Hi,

I have both versions on the same host, but with different users. And, I have one 10g and one 8i database running fine on it...
Here's my environment for the oracle10 user:

(One word to glogin.sql: When I checked sqlpluscompat, the first time I got 8.1.7, so I edited glogin.sql and set this to 10.2.0. Now, I get 10.2.0 in sqlplus as supposed, but I still can't start the DB...)

The damage is already done Smile
Try recreating the database.
This is something very basic and I am running out of ideas.
If it does not work, please open a ticket with Oracle Support.

Hi Mahesh,

thanks for your support and the fast answers!
As a last try, I will drop the database again and recreate it with the new glogin.sql.
If this fails, I'm also out of ideas...

Hi Mahesh,

I've dropped the database, re-created it with sqlpluscompat 10.2.0, and voila, it's working, Smile.
I'd like to know what happened, but, I think that was something weird, and I will never figure it out.
Nevertheless, everything's fine now, Smile.
Thanks again for your support!
