    Unanswered: Oracle 8i & Win XP Professional SP 2

    I HAVE LOADED ORACLE 8i ON WINDOWS XP. IT HAD LOADED SUCCESSFULLY AND
    I HAD WORKED ON IT. BUT ON NEXT REBOOT WINDOWS IS NOT ABLE TO START
    THE SERVICE CALLED OracleServiceORCL. WHEN I TRY TO START IT AGAIN IT
    ENDS WITH AN ERROR:-

    Could not start the OracleServiceORCL service on Local Computer
    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control
    request in a timely fashion

    Any help will be highly appreciate.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Jai

    Look in task manager and see if oracle.exe is running. Windows might have initialized thread space for Oracle but not started the instance into the thread space, which of course would preclude Oracle from opening a database. If oracle.exe is running, then go to a command prompt and try starting the database manually. This will isolate where the problem is.

    set oracle_sid=ORCL
    sqlplus /nolog
    connect sys as sysdba
    startup

    If startup fails because already started, then try to alter database mount and alter database open.

    On Win2K and XP you might try editing $OH/network/admin/sqlnet.ora and setting parameter sqlnet.authentication_services=(NONE) This is related to a bug fixed in 81721 and higher.
