    Unhappy Unanswered: ORA-12540:TNS:internal limit restriction exceeded

    when i connect from the command prompt as sysdba the
    following message:

    ORA-12540:TNS:internal limit restriction exceeded

    On metalink i found a possible reason for this problem:

    The previous SQL*Plus session terminated abnormally which left a
    shadow process which was not properly cleaned up. If more than 3 of
    these shadow processes have been left, the next SQL*Plus session gets
    an error and is not able to connect.

    I want my 450 users to get connected to my database server
