Information in this document applies to any platform.
All database and ASM instances report the following message in their alert logs:
"connect: ossnet: connection failed to server <cell IP address>, result=5 (login: sosstcpreadtry failed)"
The message gets repeated many times as the cell server cannot accept new connections.
Database instances may become unresponsive and have to be shutdown aborted/restarted to recover.
