I'm very fresher in Oracle DBA field.I'm using Oracle 8.1.7.Pls help me

SELECT STATUS,SERVER
  FROM V$SESSION
 WHERE AUDSID = USERENV('SESSIONID')

Above query returns "dedicate"

And there is no "server=dedicate" entry in tnsnames.ora in server.

And following entries are available while i ran "show parameter"

mts_service=smsora
mts_servers=1
mts_dispatchers=(PROTOCOL=TCP)(SER=MODOSE)
mts_max_dispatchers=5
mts_max_servers=20

SO I'M IN CONFUSION IF MY DATABSE SERVER IS IN DEDICATE OR SHARED SERVER CONFIGURED MODE.

Look at your client m/c's TNSNAMES.ORA and check if the SERVER is set to DEDICATED OR SHARED?

IF the server paramater in TNSNAMES is set to DEDICATED, then it will created a DEDICATED connection

Check whether the server is MTS configured

select server, count(*) from v$session where username is not null GROUP BY server;

The above query returns "shared" only when at least one user is connect as shared. Even if the Database is MTS, the client has the option to connect as shared or dedicated by editing tnsnames.ora file entry.

select server, count(*) from v$session where username is not null GROUP BY server;

Above query results like below:

DEDICATED -2
None-67
PSEUDO-10

I think dedicated is the default mode if nothing is specified in your TNSNAMES.ora
