When trying to import the Oracle export dump into Oracle database, the following errors occur:

IMP-00003: ORACLE error 3113 encountered
ORA-03113: end-of-file on communication channel
IMP-00003: ORACLE error 3114 encountered
ORA-03114: not connected to ORACLE

The errors occur on Oracle database installed in Windows machine too. Actually the problem can occurs in any platform of Oracle database. It usually happens when try to import into new database.

The problem occurs because imp utiliy encounters error out when trying to execute some commands.

The solution to solve the problem is as following:

Login as sys in the SQLPLUS and run the following sqls


After executing the above sql scripts, retry the import. The error should disappears.
