Cause: The value of the DB_FILES initialization parameter was exceeded.
Action: Increase the value of the DB_FILES parameter and restart Oracle.

sqlplus / as sysdba
SQL> show parameter db_files

SQL> alter system set db_files = 512 scope = spfile;

Restart your instance

SQL> shutdown immediate
SQL> startup open

Thanks Cola. I have a four nodes on the cluster. Now after I run the later system command do I need to reboot the nodes or just restart oracle on each?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Yes. This is a database level parameter, which means it is global to the whole cluster. According to docs either use a shared parameter file, or make sure the parameter is identical across all spfiles.

Restart all instances.
