ORA-00028 Tips

Oracle Database Tips by Donald BurlesonApril 20, 2015

We are executing a alter table drop partition command and after ten minutes the session is terminated and we are seeing the ORA-00028 error.  Is this ORA-00028 error a bug?  I did not kill the session, and I don;t know when a session would be killed.

Answer: The oerr utility show this on the ORA-00028 error:

ORA-00028: Your session has been killed

Cause: A privileged user has killed your session and you are no longer logged on to the database.

Action: Login again if you wish to continue working.

When you get an ORA-00028 error, make sure to check the alert log and look for any associated trace files.

Due to unknown issue (internal timeout, deadlock, or a bug), the procedure locks itself, and a re-start will usually resolve the ORA-00028 error.
