ORA-12547 Terminating with error code 14


While stopping the solution manager 7.1 on oracle through stopsap script it gives me below error while trying to stop SAP:




ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact

SP2-0640: Not connected


ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact

ORA-12547: TNS:lost contact

------------------------------ Wed Oct 31 16:22:43 PDT 2012

Connect to the database to check the database state:

R3trans check finished with return code: 0

Database is still running

*** ERROR: shutdown failed

/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run/stopdb: Terminating with error code 13


The database is still up along with the listener.

But when I individually stop the three one by one, it stops without any error.

1.Stop SAP instance

2.Stop listener

3.Stop database

2. Also the similar is the issue with startsap as mentioned below :


Database is not available via R3trans


Trying to start SID database ...

Log file: /home/sidadm/startdb.log

No SQL*Net V2 connect to SID available.

Check that the listener is running: "lsnrctl status".

Start the listener as user orasid: "lsnrctl start".

/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run/startdb: Terminating with error code 14

DB startup failed

please send the tracefile /home/sidadm/startsap.trc to support


But if i start following one by one it starts with no error :

1. Start db using startup

2. start listener using lsnrctl start LISTENER_SID

3. start sap startsap

I have already gone through few forum suggestion & tried registering listener with oracle using "alter system register" still i get the same problem.

I have attached my network admin files, kindly request your help to solve the same. (459 B)
