Experts -

We're getting intermittent connection issues with the databases.

The error we're getting is "ORA-12537: TNS: Connection closed"

This server is running 13 databases with their own oracle homes.

Where should I start looking to fix this issue?

Thanks,
Stanley

Try to ping the server's IP to see if it is fine.

Check also if the database is up or not.

I hate to post blind links but it appears there can be many things that might cause this error.

I would probably open an SR with Oracle Support so they can set up the proper tracing to make sure you find the correct cause.

Thanks Experts.

We did make some changes on the memory settings that help to resolve this error on few databases. Still working with Oracle support on this.

If you didn't get an answer I suggest you delete the question.

That is better than accepting answers that didn't help locate a solution, like ping the servers and make sure the database is up...
