    Hi,

    I suspect some problem with shared memory or semaphore parameters in /etc/System file.Either they are set too high or not set properly.It's just a guess.

    Do not allocate more than 1/2 the RAM available on the server for the instance(s). Check settings in /etc/system also.

    Don't forget to reboot the server for these parameters to take effect.I think your sysadmin needs to give a boot -r for these changes to affect the kernel.

    Exclamation

    Hello, I have the same problem and I resolved it.

    <ORACLE>$ export ORACLE_SID= <INSTANCE>
    <ORACLE>$ sqlplus /nolog
    SQL> connect /as sysdba
    SQL> shutdown abort
    SQL> exit

    2 processes are not stoped and I kill them.
    For me, these processes are: "ora_dbw0_xxx" and "ora_pmon_xxx"

    and after-, I can start my database without problem:
    <ORACLE>$ sqlplus /nolog
    SQL> connect /as sysdba
    SQL> startup
