Error code 2 starting OracleDbConsole service
Posted on 2014-09-02
I have oracle 11g running on windows server 2008, I am able to connect to the db with SQL Developer and from the command prompt sqlplus. All the other services are running except for OracleDbConsoleorcl. I have tried to start the service from both from the command line and from the manage computer guy. Below is the error I get. I have also tried changing who starts the service from system to administrator but that did not work.
Windows could not start OracleDbConsoleorcl on
Local Computer. If this is a non-Microsoft service,
contact the service vendor, and refer the service
specific error code 2
I have tried editing the hosts file and adding the FQDN and the ip address as well as the localhost and loop back ip address. I have also tried copying the folders in the following two directories.
We are an educational institution and the administration cannot or will not pay for oracle support, so I am paying for this out of my pocket. The professor that took care of oracle before me retired and I missed a staff meeting where I was elected to maintain the server. We have several adjuncts that use it through out the semester. It was running and configured correctly in May but we have had several power outages during the summer. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I can send log files tomorrow during the day.
