correct way to stop RAC

Hello,

I have a Oracle RAC environment with two nodes and I always get confuse with what is consider the "graceful" way to shutdown a RAC environment

Stop the database and instance
srvctl stop database -d
stop the services
srvctl stop nodeapps -n
Stop CRS
as root
$CRS_HOME/bin/crsctl stop crs
or as root:
/sbin/init.d/init.crs stop


what if I just do
as root:
$CRS_HOME/bin/crsctl stop crs
or /sbin/init.d/init.crs stop

both option will do the job I just do not know if the second approach, which is easier will increase changes of data corruption.

Thanks,

Re: correct way to stop RAC

this is what i found for you
1. Shut down the Oracle applications, if any.
2. Shut down Oracle.
3. Deactivate the database volume groups or disk groups.
4. Shut down the cluster (cmhaltnode or cmhaltcl).

Thanks Aussan,

Base on our answer and the information from the link I think I should keep using my first option.
