    Oracle shutdown and startup scripts

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23

    I would like to shutdown Oracle for this weekend and I would like to practice with our startup and shutdown. I don't see where it shutdown Oracle, can someone look at this for me when they get a chance and if Oracle is not getting shutdown, let me know what values to give for an Oracle shutdown.


    Note:  Oracle restart needs to be preceded by aleph_shutdown and followed by aleph_startup.  See the article " Proper way to restart Oracle on an Aleph server " in this regard.   As described in the article, in an "All-in-One" setup, Oracle can be restarted using util o/1/2 .


    Login as user oracle
    Run command
    $ dbshut
    It's located in $ORACLE_HOME/bin. or
    $ svrmgrl > connect internal > shutdown immediate {Oracle shutdown is not supposed to be included into aleph shutdown.}

    Oracle startup and shutdown script are $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart and $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbshut.
    It's a responsibility of sysadmin to create system script which calls those scripts when the server starts and stops.}
