    Unanswered: ORA-12500 on Standby Database

    I am a newbie to Oracle. I am attempting to set up a standby database. I believe I have everything configured correctly, but, when the primary attempts to archive the logs to the standby, or when you attempt to connect to the standby data base, you get ora-12500 errors.

    This is a lab environment using downloaded Oracle 8i on Windows 2000. I am trying this so that when I get a job, hopefully, I will actually be able to do the work. Novel approach don't you think?

    Thanks for any assistance.

    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
