We attempted to switch our Metalib 4 to production yesterday and the process failed.
The failure occurred (I think) the second step of Step 2: Upgrade Express Conversion Steps for STP.
From the logs I get the following error:
Step begin 1000
DBI connect('janeway.services.brown.edu.meta4','METALIB_ADMIN',...) failed: ORA-12518: TNS:listener could not hand off client connection (DBD ERROR: OCIServerAttach) at ./sourc$
A_ERROR: couldn't connect to database
Start at : 2008-02-10 10:52
source = M31_ target = M43_
Step end 1000
So it appears there's something wrong with the Oracle Listener? What should I do now?
If you also have an earlier release of Metalib on the same sever (e.g. v3.13) this may be confusing the Oracle listener.
In this case, try changing the sharing/dedicated parameter in some of the Oracle files. For example:
This should resolve the “listener could not hand off client connection".
