ORA-00604 ORA-04031 while issuing a DROP USER USER_NAME CASCADE statement

Hello,

I received this error message when I issue the drop statement. We are
using a 9.2.0.3 DB on UNIX OS. I have been able to drop other users
within the same session, but this particular user is causing problems.
I flushed the shared pool, but I still received the same error
message. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Hi,

You can try flushing sharedPool . If that doesn't help, you can even
try bouncing the db once.

Keep us posted.

Thanks.
