Service account

Hello all,


I have a problem with my Oracle XE

Today I have tried to change account, under which are services running (OracleXE and OracleXEListener).

My new functional account has is in group administartors on the PC, where Oracle is running.

I have restarted PC after change and after restart I could see that services were started.



When I tried to connect, I got an error "tns listener does not currently know of sid given in connect descriptor".

I have checked listener with LSNRCTL STATUS and I could see, that there are missing services XE and XEXDB.

So my personal feeling is, that service OracleXE is not started correctly...

If I return the service account back - to Local system, it is working correctly.


Please, could you advice me, what I should check?
