ORA-09923: Can't spawn process - user log directory not created properly

Cause : ORACLE was unable to spawn a background process because the directory that holds the trace files of the dedicated server processes was not created properly.

Action - How to fix it : DBA Scripts :: www.high-oracle.com/scripts

Examine the directory pointed to by the initialization parameter "user_dump_dest". Make sure that all of the following is true: 1. The directory exists. 2. The name indeed points to a directory, and is not a file. 3. The directory is accessible and writable to the ORACLE user.
