Creating the ORACLE instance doesn't work with "sqlplus /nolog" command instead of "svrmgrl"

Hi there.

Just to remind you that we're not migrating from 7.3.4 to 8.0.6 yet.

I'd like to create another instance by using the Command "sqlplus /nolog" not "svrmgrl" because of the future migration to 9i version which recommands us to use "sqlplus /nolog".

I've followed your instructions and this is what I've found :

1. the "svrmgrl" command allows me to startup the database after commenting/removing hte parmater LOCK_SHARED_MEMORY setted in the initora123.ora file (With this, I'm happy and thanks for your assistance)

------------------------------------------------------------------------

# By default, this is false.
#lock_shared_memory = false

# define parallel server (multi-instance) parameters
# ifile = ora_system:initps.ora

# define two control files by default
control_files = ($ORACLE_HOME/admin/etrecia/oradata/ctrl1ora123.ctl,$ORACLE_HOME
/admin/etrecia/oradata/ctrl2ora123.ctl,$ORACLE_HOME/admin/etrecia/oradata/ctrl3o
ra123.ctl)

2. the 'sqlplus' command doesn't allow me to startup the ORACLE instance:

=========================================================================

Would you please explain me why "sqlplus /nolog" command can not be run successfully with Version 8.x? (Because it is a part of Oracle 8 Entreprise Edition, we have the choice to select one of the two commands).

I'll appreciate your assistance.

Best Regards,

Engo.

Re: Creating the ORACLE instance doesn't work with "sqlplus /nolog" command instead of "svrmgrl"

I believe that the full set of svrmgrl commands weren't available in sqlplus until 8i (8.1.5 and up). So in 8.0.6 I you're stuck with using svrmgrl.
