I initially installed version of the database and then applied the patch successfully. Now i cannot get the database started. I get this error: ORA-12505: TNS:listener does not currently know of SID given in connect descriptor (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach)

I've not changed anything. If fact, i made a copy of the listner.ora and tnsname.ora file and they both are identical. Please help.
