I keep on getting this error when i shutdown my vm improperly.
ORA-01033: ORACLE initialization or shutdown in progress
SP2-0751: Unable to connect to Oracle.
Very simple solution is to do below –
> login as sysdba
$sqlplus sys/password@SERVICE as SYSDBA
SQL> recover database until cancel;
SQL> alter database open resetlogs;
Let me know if this doesn’t work for you…
