why do you want your own session to get killed??

it seems that you are trying to practise on kill session..

identify the correct sid,serial# combination to kill the session..


if you want to kill your own session then easy way wouold be to login from other session and you can execute the same command.. it will get killed..

I presume you are trying to kill a different session.  Try:

select * from sys.v$session where USERNAME LIKE ‘SCHEMA_NAME here%’ and status=’ACTIVE’;

as mentioned already, you cannot kill the current session from the same session. so either kill some other session or when you disconnect/log off, then your session gets closed off automatically.

but the syntax you had used to kill the session is correct but it just needs some other sid & serial#
