8i - service up, cannot start database, error 1031?
Posted on 2003-11-19
Oracle 8i on a machine that has recently changed domains.
Services start ok. Database not started.
Using DBA Studio, I connect as a sysdba and try to open the instance (or start, mount, etc) using same config files as before. This fails almost immediately.
In the system event viewer we get the following message (verbatim)...
"Audit trail: ACTION : 'connect INTERNAL' OSPRIV : OPER CLIENT USER: TRIBALDATA\TDS^Admin CLIENT TERMINAL: DEV2K STATUS: FAILED ( 1031 ) . "
Have tried this with several user accounts. Get paired messages in the event log, one with the above message and status "SUCCEEDED ( 0 ) " and this one that fails, same timestamp.
We have inherited this database and the account info may be wrong.
As far as I know the only thing that has changed is that the OS domain has changed. Operating System is Windows 2000 Server.
Any ideas anyone please, about where to look or what the cause may be?
