'zigzagdna' has now developed the habit to post all his queries *both* on OTN (using an anonymous handle) and on this forum. On OTN he denies his ulimit settings are a problem. Zigzagdna, instead of involving all of the globe, posting your 'I can not be bothered to read documentation' queries all over the globe, and involving DBAs all over the globe to do your work, can you please *STOP* this behavior, *NOW*
