    Unanswered: How to mount another database.

    I got this to work, but then my computer goofed up on me and I didn't record what I did.

    I've got two databases: the default one and another one I created with the database configuration assistant.

    I want to load up the second database, but I just can't figure out how.

    When I log on sys as sysdba, I can't mount "travelexperts". When I type: "startup mount travelexperts", I get:
    ORA-01504: database name 'TRAVELEXPERTS' does not match parameter db_name 'orant10g'

    I know there's a way to start a travelexperts without changing any system files or anything messy like that. Can anyone shed some light on this?

    ORA-01504: database name name does not match parameter DB_NAME

    Cause: The name in a CREATE DATABASE or START UP command does not match the name given in the initialization parameter DB_NAME.

    Action: Determine which name is correct, then resubmit the command after
    correcting the name in the appropriate place.

    In English: You're starting up TRAVELEXPERTS but your init.ora file has the Db Name as ORANT10G. Either your init.ora file is wrong or you're looking in the wrong place for it.

    You can set your ORACLE_SID to the instance you want up and run the STARTUP MOUNT again. I guess this should make a difference.
