I'm trying to install Oracle Secure Enterprise Search (SES) on Windows server 2008 R2 x64
In configuration assistance step, when it reaches to oracle database configuration assistance it open new windows "Database configuration assistance", in first step "copying database file" it popup an error "ora-12560 TNS Protocol Error" .
on that server I don't have oracle database and even I don't sure it needed for SES or not !!
I search it and I found so many solution for this special error, but the problem is most of then were regarding to oracle data base not oracle SES, and I don't know which one of them should I use for solving my problem :(
I'm installing Oracle SES, as I mentioned it, in "Database configuration assistance" it shows this error, I think it is like when you want to install Oracle Database, but I haven't install Oracle DB till now and I am not familiar with that at all.
SES installs a database as part of its installation process. A few things to check:
1/ Is this the only Oracle product on the machine? If you have any other products which incorporate the database, you may be getting a clash
2/ Have you previously had an Oracle product installed? If so, check for left-over environment variables, especially ORACLE_HOME, ORACLE_SID or TNS_ADMIN
3/ If the machine has a dynamic IP address using DHCP, make sure you've installed the "loopback adapter" as specified in the install guide.
