I'm trying to create an oracle instance but when trying to create a database i obtained the following error message :

ORA-00443: background process "RECO" did not start
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available

What's the purpose of the RECO process ?

How can i start the RECO process or see the process status ?

Any idea of why this process didn't want wake up or keep dead ?
