|SVRMGR>connect internal as sysoper
|Password:
|Connected.
|SVRMGR>startup force
|<<some text come here, total system global area etc etc>>
|Database mounted. Database opened.
|
|and now i can connect...
|
|I've restarted the database twice, it works now. But i just
|don't understand what happend and why! drive me nuts! Besides
|this command overwrite your SGA with a new copy, and i would
|like to avoid it in the future....
