I am seeing the following in my log files and I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction in resolving this. I am new to Oracle so I apologize if I did not contact the right person. Any help at all would be appreciated.
The database version is: Oracle8i Enterprise Edition , 184.108.40.206.0, 400
ORA-01115: IO error reading block from file 1 (block # 6963)
ORA-01110: data file 1: '/oracle/system/oraprd1g/system01.dbf'
ORA-27041: unable to open file
SVR4 Error: 24: Too many open files
Additional information: 3
It looks as though you have exceeded an operating system limit on open files. I'd suggest consulting your system administrator.
