I installed oracle 9i Rel 2 on Windows XP Pro SP 1 everything went ok and installation is successful. When I tried to start the management server I got an error directing me to the Sysman/log directory to look at the oms.nohup file for the error messages. The contents of the file are listed below. Any body had the same problem before... I looked at the other solutions but none address it every solution is guessing ... Thanks

Hi Ahmad66,

I haven't personally seen this issue but there are bunch of Metalink notes (574160.999, 344271.995, 337174.999, etc.) that reference *exactly* the same error and get resolution.

Your management server is configured to use a DNS server but the DNS server does not have an entry that corresponds to the output of the hostname command for your management server. You may easily test this by opening a command window and typing:

c:\ > hostname

c:\ > nslookup <hostname>

The resolution for this issue is to have an entry in the DNS server. The workaround is to place an entry in /windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts for your hostname and IP address. Your management server should start after that.
