Would anyone know why an Oracle 8i database running on Windows 2000 will not automatically start on a server reboot?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I use Oracle under UNIX, but not under Windows. So, my response may not be of much help. Under UNIX, the file /var/opt/oracle/oratab has a line of the form
$ORACLE_SID:$ORACLE_HOME:<N|Y>, where the first and the second fields are the system identifier and home
directory of the database respectively. The third field indicates to the ‘dbstart’ utility that the database should, “Y”, or should not, “N”, be brought up at system boot time.

You may ask a Windows expert about a comparable file in Windows.

    Run regedit. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> ORACLE Find the Oracle Home where you see your database listed. Look for the key that says ORA__AUTOSTART Edit that key and set the value to TRUE Your database will now automatically startup on reboot.
