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

I’m not an expert on 9i, but it sounds like you are installing as a client? In other words, it’s trying to connect to a database. I’m sure someone else will join in on this discussion, so this is only a suggestion from an non-DBA.

    Like mentioned,it's very likely you're doing a client side installation. You can see this on your CD. If it's mentioned 'client installation', you're using the Client CD. As I understand well, you want to install and run a local Oracle database. Therefore it's best you install 'Personal Oracle'. This is a personal use version of the standard or enterprise Oracle DBMS version. For the installation, just put the CD in your CD drive and follow the installation wizard. You can get a "demo" database on installation. The ORA-12560 error is due to the fact that your client installation, can't find the definition of the database server. You have to specify your database directives in a file called tnsnames.ora in $ORACLE_HOMEnetworkadmin. Or you can use the Net Configuration Assistant who'll do everything for you.

    It Seems U have not configured the network on ur operating system.just installed it if u do not have a network card on ur machine then take ms loop back adapter from the list of adapters. then install oracle it will be ok. this is happening because ur tns listner service is not being started automatically. and if u try it to start u will be reported same error. so do it and enjoy oracle Rakesh K.

    The version of Oracle 9i may not work under Windows 2003. You me need Windows 2000. Unless you have verified compatibility. What is the full version number of your 9i installation?

    I have Oracle 9i running on two Windows 2003 servers and it works fine. I don't think the OS is the issue. Te 12560 error sounds like the tnsnames.ora file or some other net configuration isn't set up properly. If you got the original error during installation I'd start by uninstalling, then reinstalling. If possible make sure as little as possible is running on the box when you're doing the install.

    Do you remember if during your install you were asked about a global database name. Its very possible that you installed the database components but never created a database. In order to find out type dbca at a command prompt. Thats the database configuration assistent. It will assist you in creating, deleting or managing a database. If you have the option of managing a database then there is one already on your box.
