ORA-01620:

no public threads are available for mounting
Cause: The INIT.ORA parameter "thread" is zero, its default value. There are no threads which have been publicly enabled, and not mounted.
Action: Shutdown the instance, change the INIT.ORA parameter to a thread which is privately enabled and not mounted. If the database is open in another instance, then a thread may be publicly enabled.
