I don't find sgadef.def & ik.def files on my system.
It did not work as other database was shutdown properly.
The "lk" and "sgadef.dbf" files are used for locking shared memory.
It seems that even though no memory is allocated, Oracle thinks memory is
still locked. By removing the "sgadef" and "lk" files you remove any knowledge
oracle has of shared memory that is in use. Now the database can start.
