  • Hey there, could you rework your question to make it a little clearer? Maybe walk thru what happened before you shutdown the server, reasons why you did. – Anthony Genovese Apr 24 '18 at 0:04

I think you did the following steps and caught this error.

SQL> shut immediate
Database closed.
Database dismounted.
ORACLE instance shut down.
SQL> exit
Disconnected from Oracle Database 12c Enterprise Edition Release 12.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production

You tried to start SQL*PLUS and starting the database.

[oracle@myserver oracle]$ sqlplus

Enter user-name: 

The problem is the database has not started to do the authentication for these supplied usernames.

You could connect to the idle instance using as as sysdba as the username to start the instance.

Enter user-name: sys as sysdba
Enter password: 
Connected to an idle instance.

SQL> startup
