oracle thread: Re: ORA-12640 - Authentication adapter initialization failed


Message #1 by "Katie Gerg" <kgerg@i...> on Tue, 16 Jul 2002 19:49:36
Problem Solved

I found it on Google.

I set ORACLE_SID as an env. variable (also made sure the ORACLE_SID registry
entry was set too).

Thanks

failed


I am also having a problem with starting up the database after I rebooted
(even though the w2k services started OK).

I found I was getting an error ORA-12640 - Authentication adapter
initialization failed.  and the solution was to set
sqlnet_authentication_services=(NONE)  in the sqlnet.ora file.

that didn't work.

then I found this error,

DBSNMP for 32-bit Windows: release 8.1.7 - Production on 12-JUL-02 15:45:52
Discovering services on COFFEE configured on host addresses
Warning : No databases discovered
Warning : Error while sourcing third party discovery file nmiforms.tcl :
can't read "env(ORACLE_HOME)": no such element in array

In oracle 9i they said they fixed Bug 1479367, "version 8.1.7
nmiforrms.tcl is looking for an ORACLE_HOME env. variable in the wrong way"

I couldn't find a fix for this bug.  Does anyone know the fix (hopefully
there is one!)?

Also I'm new to oracle, I found the svrmgrl.exe but do not know the
command to execute to start the database.  Anyone have any pointers to
some documentation for this, or can tell me the command?

Thanks.
