I hope you can help me.
I need to restore an Oracle 9i (188.8.131.52.0) database on a Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 from a cold backup. I managed to get the 9i installer and the version patch (since I was told I need the exact Oracle version to restore cold backups).
I installed 9i and the patch, but the Database Configuration Assistant throws an "ORA-12546:TNS Permission denied" error when creating the database (In the first step "Creating and starting Oracle instance").
Windows firewall is disabled, and my user (Administrator) is in the ORA_DBA group.
I'm new to Oracle, therefore I don't know which steps should I follow in order to solve this, and I haven't been able to find any solution on the web (maybe because 9i support ended long time away). I'm assuming if I can't even create a database, I won't be able to restore the cold backup either. Please help
Thanks in advance
