Connected to an idle instance.
ORA-27100: shared memory realm already exists
SQL> shutdown immediate
ORA-01034: ORACLE not available
ORA-27101: shared memory realm does not exist
Restarting the service, the same error is encountered.
Rebooting the server does not help as well (because that also restarts the service).
The parameter sga_max_size was increased, e.g. from 2GB to 3GB.
