Re: inetd error while starting the oracle


it looks like one of inetd service is giving problem.

may be bootp service i don't exactly.

please comment it in /etc/inetd.conf
and give

Re: inetd error while starting the oracle

This error has nothing to do with oracle.

Unless of course the oracle startup script is trying to boot the machine or obtain IP information from a BIND(DNS) server across the network.

Here is some information related to the actual error.

An 11.00 doc, but it should help.

Hope it helps.

It would be useful to know what version of BIND you are using.
