    Question Unanswered: Ora-12560: TNS: protocol adapter error

    Hi, I am trying to create a database using the "Database Configuration Assistant". It fails with this error: "Ora-12560: TNS: protocol adapter error"

    The listener is started and tnsping works successfully.

    The computer is a Pentium III with Oracle 8.1.6

    Thanks.

    Arrow OS ?

    Hi
    What version of OS are you working on.

    If it is Windows XP Home Edition, I am sure Oracle doesnt support it.

    If u have Professional or Linux or some other OS, please mention the details.

    If the listener on the server working fine.
    Thanx and Regards

    Arrow Read some documentation

    Hi
    goto otn.oracle.com, and read some documentation on troubleshooting with the listener not working.
    You would need to start the service call lsnrctl.

    Thanx and Regards

    Arrow Please share the solution

    Hi
    If you possibly get the lsnrctl, working on your Windows 2000 server, please do share the solution on the forum, as there are people like you or me, who at some point are struggling with the same.

    Hope you would agree.
