OracleDBConsole Service Does Not Start
After starting up without any problems following a recent install of Oracle 10g Standard Edition on Windows 2000, the OracleDBConsole%Oracle_SID% (OracleDBConsolestarter in our case) is no longer starting. Whether it's set to Automatic or started manually, we get a Windows error 1053 (service did not start in a timely manner).
As a result, we are unable to open Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM).
Oracle support has had us drop the sysman user and run the Enterprise Manager Config. Assistant from the command line to remove and recreate some configuration files, but this has not helped. They have also asked us to verify that there are no Oracle system or user environment variables set, which we have verified.
We are using Automatic Storage Management (ASM), and did have some problems with that along the way, but those seem to be straightened out for the moment.
