Hello,

I receive an ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error when I try the
following:
sqlplus /nolog
conn / as sysdba

I currently have 8i installed and working properly on the same
machine.  I used DBCA to install the new 9i software.  I am now trying
to connect to sqlplus so I can create the Database.  I am using Remote
Administrator to work on the machine.  I think I set all of the
correct parameters on the machine, but is there a document somewhere
to determine the specific parameters that are necessary?

Any assistance that you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you - Brett
