Need assistance with resolving "status blocked" message from listener for Oracle 10g database.
This is Oracle 10g on Windows 2003 server

Have tried ASM installed on different and same homes with no difference.
Understand that is normal for ASM blocked report. Concerned that database instance is also blocked.

Inrease PROCESSES.

Cause
By way of instance registration, PMON is responsible for updating the listener
with information about a particular instance such as load and dispatcher
information. Maximum load for dedicated connections is determined by the
PROCESSES parameter. The frequency at which PMON provides SERVICE_UPDATE
information varies according to the workload of the instance. The maximum
interval between these service updates is 10 minutes.

The listener counts the number of connections it has established to the instance
but does not immediately get information about connections that have terminated.
Only when PMON updates the listener via SERVICE_UPDATE is the listener
informed of current load. Since this can take as long as 10 minutes, there can be
a difference between the current instance load according to the listener
and the actual instance load.

When the listener believes the current number of connections has reached maximum
load, it may set the state of the service handler for an instance to "blocked"
and begin refusing incoming client connections with either of the following
errors:

TNS-12516 TNS:listener could not find instance with matching protocol stack
TNS-12519 TNS:no appropriate service handler found

Additionally, an ORA-12520 error may appear in the listener log.

The output of the LSNRCTL services command will likely show that the service handler is "blocked".

e.g. '"DEDICATED" established:1 refused:0 state:blocked'
Solution
Increase the pfile or spfile setting for PROCESSES.

Thanks for the responses so far.  The problem may have a different root cause since the suggestions provided have not lead to an answer.  The attached file shows that the cause may be related to the database not mounting.  Can you provide assistance with this area as a possible cause for this situation?

Thanks in advance.

This is the problem.  If you are not the System Admin, talk to her/him:
ORA-15001: diskgroup "DATA" does not exist or is not mounted
ORA-15077: could not locate ASM instance serving a required diskgroup




ORA-00202: control file: '+DATA/database1/controlfile/current.265.662393849'
ORA-17503: ksfdopn:2 Failed to open file +DATA/database1/controlfile/current.265.662393849

So now that the problem - or question is clear -  I still don't know how to fix it. Why would the diskgroup mount and then unmount so that it is unavailable?

It is obvious you are not the System Admin.  Talk to him/her.  Where I work after rebooting some server I have to talk to the Sys admin, telling that a filesystem is not mounted, is missing, they do soething which I don't know what it is and then I can see the filesystem again.

Several days of additional troubleshooting have not resolved the root problem causing the listener error, that being that the database will not function with the disk as indicated in the log snippet previously provided.  Thanks for the assistance to date but no solution can be accepted as this has not lead to problem resolution.
