On my web site I am accessing an oracle database using oo4o and ODBC through ASP

I keep getting this message

Unable to make connection, ORA-00020: maximum number of processes (30) exceeded

Can anyone advise.

I have messed about with the connection pooling in the global.asa file for oo4o and with connection pooling in ODBC but to no avail.

I am using oracle version 8.0.6

I use 8.1i and have seen this message. It concerned the DB configuration. There is a DB variable which you can change to increase this number, but I can't remember which one (there are several). Maybe you could ask your DB administrator to check this out.

Thanks nigel..

There is a connection pooling setting in the global.asa file when using oo4o

You could check up in the instance manager on the Oracle Enterprise Manager, for any instances that appear to be hanging. Try to end that process. These kind of errors normally come up due to some process either occupying too much of the alloted CPU usage, or forking more processes.
It would be a good idea to check up the DB activites by a DBA if the database is in prodcution.
