Problem Starting SAP with Oracle


Dear Experts,

Our production system rebooted due to some electricity issue and since then we are not able to start SAP. We are on oracle 10g and AIX OS. We have done all the options but no avail.

Following is screen output when I run command : "startsap".


Checking ABC Database


ABAP Database is not available via R3trans

Starting SAP-Collector Daemon



  • This is Saposcol Version COLL 20.94 700 - AIX v10.35 5L-64 bit 070123*

  • Usage: saposcol -l: Start OS Collector*

  • saposcol -k: Stop OS Collector*

  • saposcol -d: OS Collector Dialog Mode*

  • saposcol -s: OS Collector Status*

  • The OS Collector (PID 884754) is already running .....*


saposcol already running

Running /usr/sap/ABC/SYS/exe/run/startdb

Trying to start ABC database ...

Log file: /home/ABCadm/startdb.log

No SQLNet V2 connect to ABC available.*

Check that the listener is running: "lsnrctl status".

Start the listener as user oraABC: "lsnrctl start".

/usr/sap/ABC/SYS/exe/run/startdb: Terminating with error code 14

DB startup failed

prodserver:ABCadm 2>

Any help & advice to solve this issue will be appreciated.
