Memory segment not released at shutdown

On shutting down an Oracle 9.2.0.6 instance on Sun Solaris 5.9 Sun-Fire-F15 server, the memory segment was not released, preventing the instance from being restarted. We needed to manually delete the memory segment before the instance would start up.

This can happen on occasion, especially if the database did not come down cleanly. In a case like this, you will have to manually delete the memory segment before you can restart the database. If, however, this does occur even after shutting down the database normally, a TAR should be opened with Oracle Support to investigate this.
