"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

what program do you try to connect with?
Is the database a local or remote database?

please post the connect string (annonymize it)

A lot of things to check. See if you have listener running on your database. Try to use the tnsping to see if there's connection.

And of course let us know what tool are you using to connect: SQLPlus, OEM?
