    Installing the software doesn't necessarily create a database. And, if you did create a database your environment may not be properly configured with the ORACLE_SID for that database. There are any number of reasons why you see such a message; without knowing your environment and configuration any attempt to answer your question would be guesswork.

    Provide more information on your configuration and environment so somone can assist you.
