oracle emergency, seeking oracle expert
Posted on 2004-03-31
We are running oracle on a ERP system. We had a hardware failure that resulted in requireing a full restrore from backup of drive d: that holds the oracle database. We are currently running a raid 1(c:\) raid 5(d:\) I was told by the MRP company that we do buissness with that there would be no problems in doing the restore of the d:\ drive. I was also told as soon as the restore was finished that all was needed was a simple reboot and oracle would be up and going no problem. Well It didn't work that way. After restoring the d:\ drive the oracle services are failing with the error
Could not start the OracleServiceORCL service on Local Computer.
Error 3: The system cannot find the path specified.
This error is also duplicated in the event viewer.
Let me just say that I know nothing about Oracle. So Any information you need about this oracle setup I will supply you if you ask for it. I will be up all night trying to trouble shoot something I know nothing about so please anybody that knows Oracle I could use a hand on this one Bigtime. Also I will be glad to reward anyone who helps me to solve this as many points as they want.
