OracleServiceSID does not start after installation

Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion

this is the error we get when we try to manually start the service.

We have just installed PI7.1 using multiple oracle homes on a host where Solman 7.0 was installed.

After the installation, the solman OracleServiceSID refuses to start.

1. The listeners and sap services are all working.

2. The OracleServiceSID for PI is working fine

3. We have checked the environment variables...all are set correctly

4. tnsping <SID> has status "OK" for both products

5. We have not tried recreating the service as we are not sure of the related settings/configurations/procedures

I could not find any SAP note on this! Can someone help out with a solution?

Thanks

    Hi,

    There is some mismatch of service in windows registry. It is not recommended to change the values in registry.

    You can delete the existing OracleServiceSID using following command

    oradim -delete -sid <SID>

    Then recreate the service by

    oradim -new -sid SID -srvc OracleServiceSID -intpwd PASSWORD -pfile FILENAME

    This will recreate the new entries in registry.

    Regards,

    Sachin Rane

      HI Sachin,

      I faced similar issue during my system copy procedure in SRM 5.0. I just deleted the oracle instance with command

      oradim -delete -sid <SID>. I retried the SAP installation and it went fine without any more issues. There is no need to recreate the oracle instance. As I believe SAP installation takes care of creating the oracle instance.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks & Regards,

      Karthik,

    Hai,

    Check the user which is used to start the service, it should be the admin user.

    Workaround:

    Set the registry key ORACLE_<SID>_Autostart to false.

    The key can be found at:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE/<Home of your 816 installation>

    Refer Oracle Metalink note 132086.1

    You can get the user id and password for metalink in SAP Note 758563.

    Regards,

      Hi Yoganand,

      Thanks for the info! That was quite helpful. But unfortunately my Oracle version is 10.2.0.4 and the said key is already set to False.

      Can you suggest anything else?

      Thanks

    I got this error when i tried to install one more instance in same server. I as trying to install one more database home. Unfortunately i couldn't cpmplete that. I restarted my system, i m getting this error when i manually strated the oracle service. I removed all the oracle software with universal uninstaller. then installed it again with the same file system as before. Applied patch too. Now my oracle is working fine.
