Hi Rajiv,

There are couple of questions for you :

1. What release of Oracle
2. What is the OS ( nt, unix flavour, W2k...)
3. Have you created a database ?

I've see this error a lot on NT platforms. So assuming that you have 8i installed on a NT platform, try the following:

- Start the oracle related service either from control panel --> services icon or from command prompt using "net start <servicename>"

- Set the oracle_sid value at the cmd prompt and try invoking it again.

Regards,
Sudhi.

Hi,

Please give more details ie. Os, platform etc.

Most of time this happens on NT/2000 box, either you have not started the service of oracle or may be even you not created any database yet.

If you are totally new to oracle, it is recommended to use Database Configuration Assistant.

To start service of database in NT/2000:

Goto :-
Control Panel --> Services --> OracleHOME<oraclesid>, START

If you have created database named ORACLE the service will appear like oracleHOMEORACLE.

If you have already created database and even service is running try to stop and start service again.

Best luck
NK

Adapter Protocol error happens if you have not defined tnsnames.ora in your client or if listener services not running. I would suggest to check your listener.ora file in $ORACLE_HOME/network/admin/listener.ora.

Check the setup there. of course it will solve your problem.

If you have net8 ( Network Administration) windows, walk through the setup again for the Listener services. Fix the problem right there.

Good luck!

Hi,

There could be some problem with the installation of your Oracle Protocol Adapter. To resolve this problem, turn on tracing and review the output to identify the severity of the problem.

You can turn on network tracing by Net8 Assistant.
Drill down to the Profile node, select the General work area from the drop-down list box, and click the Tracing tab.

Hope this helps

It happens because you didn't set up default ORACLE_SID in oracle users's profile. You can try:

on UNIX:
export ORACLE_SID=sid (your database sid)
svrmgrl

on NT:
set ORACLE_SID=sid (your database sid)
svrmgrl


another possibility is that you just installed oracle software and haven't created database. Then create database first before try svrmgrl. Hope this help.
