sqlplus ' /as sysdba'

SQL * plus : Release 9.2.0.6.0

ERROR:

Hi Trng,

when you haltpkg from Node2 and trying to run on the Node1,

cmviewcl --> status does it shows that your package running in Node1 ..?

Can you cross check wether the package has sucefully fall-back to Node1 ..?

/etc/cmcluster/pkg.log ..?

Thanks,
Johnson

Re: Oracle :ORA-12705

Hi,


The problem could be due to improper env settings (.profile, .bash_profile, .login) for the oracle user on Node 1.Please do env on both the nodes and confirm the variables.

$env

Re: Oracle :ORA-12705

Hi,

check environment ORA_NLS33 in addition and make sure that the location it points to has the correct Oracle client SW release (9.2.0.6)

Re: Oracle :ORA-12705

I rather think you have a problem with your pfile or spfile.

I guess you don't have RAC, but a single-istance database that swithces between the nodes.
So I also guess you have a different pfile per system, and on system 1, there will be some NLSxxx parameter the database cannot understand. Or something has changed in your pfile since you last started the database on system 2, and now the database cannot start.

To my knowledge, nothing is wrong with environment parameters. This type of error is for an initialization parameter.

Re: Oracle :ORA-12705

Hi,

Please execute the following as the oracle database owner user (typically oracle) and post the output:

$echo $NLS_LANG
