Re: Oracle 8.0.5 svrmgrl startup problem

Check your alert log for error messages.

You can find this file in your background_dump_dest location under alert_SID.log or in the $ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/log directory (same name).

Most likely, you have a bad parameter in your init.ora (located in $ORACLE_HOME/dbs), however it might show up in the alertlog. Otherwise, you will have to go through the pfile and see if you can find the error. Oracle doesn't like tabs in this file, so I would check for that first.

Hope this helps.

Re: Oracle 8.0.5 svrmgrl startup problem


next to the init.ora also check your kernel parameters. When running more than 1 DB you might need to increase the advised defaults.

Try to avoid the habbit of using svrmgr, it's obsoleted as of Oracle8, and will not be supplied anymore with Oracle9 and above. Use "sqlplus /nolog" + "connect / as sysdba". If you start replacing svrmgr with sqlplus now, then you'll have less work when you migrate to Oracle9. (talking out of experience ;)

All unix flavours are exactly the same . . . . . . . . . . for end users anyway.

It seems to me you fogot to define ORACLE_SID and unset TWO_TASK. Please check your ORACLE environment.
