    Unanswered: Starting DBA Studio

    Can any one help. I've just installed Oracle 8i on Windows NT but when I try to start DBA Studio I get the following error when I enter SYS as the username, CHANGE_ON_INSTALL as the password connecting as SYSDBA.

    "ORA-12545: Connect failed because target host or object does not exist"

    Should I be trying a different username and password?.
    Insidently, I can't get into anything else except SQL+ as SCOTT and TIGER.

    Please help as I seem to have fallen at the first hurdle.

    Soln for u

    I suspect that the disk where the user details were written to by oracle has bad sectors. You may need to uninstall->Disk defragment->Disk Repair->Reinstall.
    Seems you are gonna have long day...better hammer it out today so that you may rest properly over weekend
