I have recently upgraded ArcSDE Geodatabse from 9.3 to 10.0. The applications were using SDE connection through ArcSDE Windows service V 9.3
Now when I tried starting the same ArcSDE windows service on same instance and for same oracle database using following command - >> sdemon -o start -i sde_pumaqa2 -p sde
This is giving following error - sde_pumaqa2 service failed during initialization. Please check event log or error log files. Error starting sde_pumaqa2 service(0) Could not start ArcSDE -- Check Network, $SDEHOME disk, DBMS settings and dbinit .sde.
The event viewer shows following error - The description for Event ID 110 from source sde_pumaqa2 cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.
If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.
The following information was included with the event:
sde_pumaqa2 Connection to RDBMS failed
the message resource is present but the message is not found in the string/message table
There was no change is any of the dbinit / driver file. They are checked and confirmed. Please let me know if any step I am missing in this upgrade process.
