I was trying to connect to my production database as INTERNAL and was getting this error and I have no clue.
Cause: The server context does not done exist.
Action: Establish the server context in the service context.
How to establish the server context? in the service context.
The action is superflux to me.
Please advise if you ever have that problem
0. Make sure that your environment is set correctly.
1. Are you on a unix system?
2. What is your DB version?
3. Are you trying to connect to the database through
4. In 9i the error could be because that the previous process was terminated abnormally and you have to kill that shadow process in-order to connect
connect / as sysdba
$ ps -ef|grep ora9i
$ kill pid
Hopefully one of these would provide you the answer.

SET ORACLE_SID= DB_NAME
