    ORA-00020: maximum number of processes (%s) exceeded

    Hi,

    I got this error. How do I get out of this. I am not able to get a new connection, so I cannot increase the processes in init.

    Pl. advice me.

    Thanks

    a) learnt to post in the right forum
    b) what version? you dont need a connection to update the init.ora file
    c) stop other connections if you want to get a connect

    To Increase the number of process
    Step-1
    Create pfile= /oracle/.... from spfile
    Step 2
    Shutdown database
    Step-3
    Amend that pfile and increase the number of processes
    Step -4
    startup the database with new pfile
    startup pfile='/oracle/....'
    Step-5
    Create spfile from pfile='/otacle/....'
    So that when you startup database next time it will read spfile (new)

    Best of luck.
    Regards

    Beacuse you can not change parameter called process by alter system

    Don't be silly, of course you can change it directly in spfile!

    Code:
    Connected to:
    Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release 10.1.0.4.0 - Production
    With the Partitioning, OLAP and Data Mining options
    
    SQL> alter system set processes=150 scope=spfile;
    
    System altered.

    I have clearly mentioned these steps are to increase the number of process in init.ora file.
    To get rid of connections I think she will have to kill connections so that application can make new connections.and this also calls for Increase of number of process in init.ora file
    ANY suggestion DAVEY23UK SIR
