Subject Re: Failed to start database
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2008 16:37:00 GMT
Hi Tom,

The database is successfully booted in only one VM and can be shut down 
only in that VM. The second application, running in a different VM, can 
not get a connection to the database and can not shut down the database, 
either. The second application should abandon its trial and not attempt 
a shutdown.

Hope this helps,
