Re: openvms RAC won't start

john d parker


No spfile at this point,but it's in the plan for the future. I've compared the init files repeatedly, there is no difference except for the appropriate instance settings. I've looked at everything I can think of but I'm not having much luck.

do you not have a shared spfile on shared storage? have you checked the actual values in the other instances?

Adding a second instance to VMS RAC. It was not previously configured as RAC. After issueing the startup command, the error returned is "ORA-00061: another instance has a different DML_LOCKS setting". This is not true, the init file for each instance has the exact same setting. The files are copies of each other with the proper entries changed. OpenVMS V7.3-2 and Oracle I've managed to forget most of my VMS knowledge so any help would be appreciated.
