Oracle Database Console Error Message

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I tried to install Oracle Database 11g on my pc running on Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit. When I tried to run the program, an error message appeared on my screen.

Here is the exact error message:

Windows Could not start the OracleDBConsoleorcl on Local Computer.

For more information, review the system Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specificerror code 2.

In select installation type, I selected enterprise edition and followed the typical installation procedure. I’m also sure that the installer verifies that my system meets all of the minimum requirements for installing and configuring the products that I have chosen to install. I also tried to reinstall the program but this error dialog box keep showing again. Is there any command that I could run to fix this problem?

Hope you guys can help me out!

Hi Collin_,

  • This problem is being caused by the fact that the Oracle DcConsole detects the PC to be working in an isolated mode from the network. To remove this problem, you will need to configure Oracle to run as a local host.
  • The procedure for this is as follows;
  • In the directory ORACLE_HOMEoc4jj2ee, (e.g  C:app????product11.1.0db_1oc4jj2ee ) there is a directory OC4J_DBConsole_localhost_orcl or OC4J_DBConsole_HOSTNAME_orcl. Make a copy (or set a link) from the directory and rename it to the specified name.
  • So you have two directories:
  • OC4J_DBConsole_localhost_orcl
  • OC4J_DBConsole_HOSTNAME_orcl

you will also need to set the following variables

Restart your machine to automatically start the service.

Try to follow these steps:
1- Start the OracleService which starts you database : Typically OracleServiceorcl
2- Start the TNS Service : typically OracleOraHome_dbhome1_TNSListener (Or Something like that)
3- Start the DBConsole service : OracleDBConsoleorcl

Hope that can help you.
