Some connection issues that may come up...

Get "SQL1598N An attempt to connect to the database server failed because of a licensing problem. SQLSTATE=42968" while connecting. This error also occurs when trying to connect to the database through the full client with Command Line Prompt (CLP) outside of Toad.
