    ORA-01033 Oracle initialization or shutdown in progress error

    Rooney

      Hi All,

       

      I am using windows 7 on my 64-bit machine, and I installed oracle database 12c. Everything was installed fine, and i was able to connect to the HR schema. However, the next day when I wanted to connect, I got the ORA-01033 Oracle initialization or shutdown in progress error. What did I do wrong ? and what can I do to fix it ?? Thank you for the help.
