Hello, I am new to Oracle and need to create a test database as the backend
for a vb frontend.
I am trying to set up a new database using Oracle 8i on an NT4 Server. We
already have a database running so we know the system works.
I have set up the ORACLE_SID to be CMAXDEV in the registry. I have created
and started an NT Service named OracleServiceCMAXDEV. I then adapted the
init.ora file and renamed it initCMAXDEV.ora
I have then started the svrmgrl utility and connected as SYSDBA. I issued
the command to STARTUP NOMOUNT and then CREATE DATABASE CMAXDEV;
At this point it comes back with the message:
ORA-01501 Create Database Failed
ORA-01991 invalid password file 'e:\oracle\ora81\DATABASES\PWDcmaxdev.ora'
I am unsure of where this file comes from and what should be in it.
Could someone offer some help as to what I am doing wrong.
