    check your semaphores setting using 'ipcs' and list them too....along with your os / oracle versions.

    The OS is Windows 2000 Service pack 4. As far as script is concern, we are using the same script since last 6 to 7 months. I've never come across such error.

    I hope this helps.

    Please let me know the problable reason and the solution for it.

    Thanks for your time.
