ORA-28511: lost RPC connection to heterogeneous remote agent

A client has been seeing this error when holding sessions open over HS for lengthy periods of time (greater than an hour or so).

Some workarounds that have worked are:

  • when possible, issue, alter session close database link, and re-open it for subsequent queries


  • Set INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT_<listener_name>=0 in listener.ora
