Hello everybody,

I have a problem with the restart of my databse.

All night we shutdown it to do a backup but when we want to restart, we have this error message :

sculkget: failed to lock /oracle/v10gR2/dbs/lkinstS3G exclusive
sculkget: lock held by PID: 14673
Oracle Instance Startup operation failed. Another process may be attempting to startup or shutdown this Instance.
Failed to acquire instance startup/shutdown serialization primitive

The database can not restart and we have to do a shutdwon immediate then a startup.

The database is ok after that but I will that the database can start without human interaction.

I have found some topics on Internet but I don't find some interesting things. Could you help me please ?
