Hello Everyone,

I am facing a problem with Oracle service on Windows 2000 server o/s.

The Problem is : sometimes when i restrat the system the Oracle service instance is not gettting started automatically eventhough its set as Automatic, and i need to go to DBA Studio GUI to start the database instance with SYSDBA privilege. My Oracle is 8.1.6 , Please help me how to solve this problem. This is the second time am facing this problem. When i faced this problem for the first time, while restarting automatically CHKDISK was executed and this problem was solved , but now its not running CHKDSK. In services list the service related to ORACLE is shown as 'Starting' and its not completely getting started.

Thaks in advance for the replies.

Check your registry settings at the following location:
You will have a number of settings but the two you need to check are:
ORA_(SID)_AUTOSTART should be set to True
ORA_(SID)_PFILE should hold the correct path for the init(SID).ora file for the database (SID being the name of the database). If either are wrong, to change them right-click and click Modify then insert the correct value. If you have more than one database running on the same server, you will have more than one HOME entry in this area of the registry (HOME0, HOME1, HOME2, etc). You need to check entries for each one. It is always a good idea to take an export of the registry before changing any settings.
Hope this helps.
