I have installed a Oracle 10G R1 standard edition on my Win2003 server.
It was starting up and running fine.
However I am unable to start dbconsole with emctl start dbconsole
with the error message:
"The service name is invalid."
I checked the services and noticed that there is not even a service for dbconsole!
I have all usual ones like Oracle<SID>TNSListener, OracleService<SID> etc... but nothing that looks remotely like it belongs to dbconsole.
I then have re-installed the database control service with OUI, making sure it is ticked, although it says it is already installed.
Still no dbconsole service...
Have you tried accessing the dbconsole, using what the URL should be? (use port 1158 if it's the only database).
Otherwise, try the RECREATE option.
emca -config dbcontrol db -repos recreate
well emctl status dbconsole tells me that its not running, so i didnt even try to go to the website.
I have tried
emca -repos recreate,
getting the "severe" error that the repository already exists and that i should fix the error and then run emca in standalone mode.
not sure how to do that fixing though... ???
The whole point of the RECREATE option is that it deletes any existing repository & then creates a new one, so I don't know why it's not working.
But then again, you're not posting what's on your screen, just telling us that you get a 'severe error'. Screen output would help!
well that's the actual output:
it actually says "SEVERE":
[first it asks for the parameters like SID and all system passwords etc, and then:]
Do you wish to continue? [yes/no]: yes
DBConsole is already configured for the database Ora1
Would you like to re-configure DBConsole for the specified database? [yes/no]: y
Make sure that DBConsole has been shutdown
When you are ready to continue, press <Enter>
