ORA-06413: connection not open tips

Oracle Error Tips by Stephanie F.


The Oracle docs note this on the ora-06413 error:

ORA-06413 Connection not open.

Cause: Unable to establish connection.

Action: Use diagnostic procedures to ascertain exact problem.

On Oracle DBA Forums,  a user questioned ORA-06413 as it was thrown each time they tried to log on.  ORA-06413 appeared in Oracle Enterprise Manager Console, after the user installed the 9i database in Windows Storage Server 2003.

The response stated that ORA-06413 is a warning, with a few possible resolutions:

A Windows Service call a method in an assembly which connects to Oracle db.

Problem 1:
When filename of service executable contains an extra dot ORA-06413 is thrown. The file was called Project.UpdateService.exe When I renamed it to ProjectUpdateService.exe no exeception i thrown.

Problem 2:
On my development server the exception is still thrown when executable is in folder with "illegal" path: "E:\My Documents\My Webs\Project(port 81)\bin". I don't know if it is the blank space or the parentheses that causes the exception, but I guess the latter. When I place the executable in "E:\Services", no exception is thrown.
