    CANNOT RECOVER DATABASE INSTANCE

    LeeDuncan
      Hello,

      I have read various topics on the web on hot to startup my database with the following error:

      ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress (DBD ERROR: OCISessionBegin)


      I am trying to execute SQL code at the command prompt but keep getting the message below:

      ERROR:
      ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress
      Process ID: 0
      Session ID: 0 Serial number: 0

      How can I get past this error? I cannot startup my database instance.

      Thanks

      Larry
