If a Windows 2000 computer is not identified with a DNS domain name, then you will receive the following error message:

Microsoft Management Console, available in Windows NT as a separate item from Microsoft, is included in Windows 2000.

Oracle services autostart on Windows NT 4.0. After upgrading to Windows 2000, you may find that services start but the database does not start.
The solution is to use ORADIM to delete and re-create the services.
To delete an instance using ORADIM, enter:
ORADIM -DELETE -SID SIDA, SIDB, SIDC, ... ORADIM -DELETE -SRVC SRVCA, SRVCB, SRVC, ...
SIDA, SIDB, SIDC are values of the SIDs to delete.
SRVCA, SRVCB, SRVC are values of the services to delete.
During upgrading, the disk is converted to NTFS 5, and a different access authorization is used. The new services autostart under the same account, but they no longer hold the same Windows permissions as before.
