Today I am getting this error when a startup;
SQL> startup nomount ORA-07217: sltln: environment variable cannot be evaluated. ORA-07217: sltln: environment variable cannot be evaluated. SQL> exit
The problem is that this environment is OpenVMS. And I have connected as follows;
$ sqlplus ‘/ as sysdba’
Everything works fine when I connect as follows;
$ sqlplus "/ as sysdba" SQL*Plus: Release 10.2.0.2.0 - Production on Thu Sep 17 21:06:51 2015 Copyright (c) 1982, 2005, Oracle. All Rights Reserved. Connected to an idle instance.
