If this error occurs only when you are running user-written PL/SQL scripts within SQL*Plus, it is quite likely that you are attempting to perform a task within the database but are not logged on. Adjust your scripts accordingly to ensure that a login occurs prior to making calls to Oracle.
If this error occurs when performing other actions, review the alert log to determine whether there are additional errors accompanying the ORA-3113 errors. This error may also appear if network connectivity issues cause a disconnection between your client and database server.
