I tried to edit Oradim from command mode. Its saying I should delete the services first. Server is running and many users are connected. I can disconnect server for some time but deleting the services means..database to be re created? Please advice me how to go abt that? Any other way out?
You can use ORADIM to start the database but you have to put this in AUTOEXEC.BAT to make sure it happens when you start the machine. Make sure the path includes the \ORANT\BIN directory already when the AUTOEXEC is running, or that it has already been set in AUTOEXEC then include the following command:
ORADIM -start -sid <sid name>.
