Unanswered: Installing and bring up pages to the database
I just loaded 10.2.0.1 and went thru fine on a Windows clusted box. I started the EM from the start\programs menu and waited. I have no interface to the database or way to bring the database up. Please advise.
Didn't SQL*Plus get installed with the the database binaries? It has on every installation I have ever done, it should be available from the start bar.
Wait, you said you installed Oracle, but you didn't say anything about creating a database. Have you created a database and started the listener? Since this is windows, you can start and stop the Oracle instance via Windows services. If the database service is started, you can also pop into a command prompt and start/stop the database and/or listener from there.
