I have setup Enterprise Manager on an NT 4.0 workstation to administer
database instances on a Solaris 2.5. I have used the orapwd utility to
setup the orapw<sid> files under $ORACLE_HOME/dbs.
I am able to access all instances via Enterpise Manager. Logging in as
SYSDBA I am able to shutdown a running instance from Enterpise Manager.
However I cannot write the initialization parameters to a file on the local
(NT) directory. The file is always saved as 0 bytes.
I cannot also startup the instance from Enterprise Manager (probably
because there are no initialization parameters and therefore remote login
password file not set to EXCLUSIVE?). The startup fails with the message -
MGR cannot start database and ORA 1031 - insufficient privileges.
Thanks in advance for any help.
