I colud not able run two instance of oracle with two different ORACLE_SID and DataBase. I am using Oracle8i
(8.1.5). For example, I login as "oracle" and set my ORACLE_SID=xyz and start the database in one session. It happens perfectly. After I go to another session and again login as "oracle" with ORACLE_SID=abc. now when try to startup the database, it says, "ORA-27146 post/wait initialization failed". Can you please give a solution?

Thanks in advance...

ORA-27146 means that the system is running out of semaphores.
You can either decrease the "processes" parameter in the init.ora file, or increase the kernel setting in /etc/system file. The semamphore parameter is called "semmns".
