    Unanswered: oracle 8i personal installation problem

    I’m trying to instal the oracle 8i personal but a had some problems. Which tools I need to execute in order to create a database? I’m trying run first the “Database Configuring Assistant”, but when I’m at 90% of database installation one message error is shown “ORA-12560: TNS: protocol adapter error”. What need I to do?

    Are you on unix? Did you apply the recommanded kernel settings?
    I guess something goes wrong when the instance is started (memory sizing/issue)

    No, I'm in a windows 2000 server. The installation was ok. What need I to do now?

    I always get that part "out of the way" first ... but I always create databases by scripts ... I would rather setup the databases the way I believe they need to be and to also I like to SEE the results and what is happening.
    Try getting the database configured in the tnsnames and listener ...

    you also need an windows service for this db.
    the service can be created with oradim.
