Compatibility with oracle 8i

By aperezalonso ·
I'm trying to install Oracle 8i server on a Windows 2000 advanced server but the installation doesn't run well. It gets stuck at the "initializing database" part.
It doesn’t go anywhere from there. What can it be?

Compatibility with oracle 8i

by Jeremy The IT Guy In reply to Compatibility with oracle ...

Oracle 8i seems to have problems like that often with Windows 2000 operating systems. I got aroung this by doing this:

Stop the installation and find your sqlnet.ora file. Then look for SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=
It should = (NTS) and if it does, change it to (BEQ, NONE)and re run the installation. Hope this helps, Jeremy
