srvctl command does it down the package?

Hi all.
I have hpux11.11 install with oracle9iDB,rac and backup raw disk env.
I need to down the db and list before backup start by execute command srvctl stop -p prod.
When backup end will issue command srvctl start -p prod. My question is
1) Will the oracle package down when we issue this command?
2) will the package down if we reboot the server?

Thanks

Shalom Fauziah,

Answers:1 To be sure you need to test it. after issuing svrctl start -p issue echo $?
If the reply is a zero then it probably worked. For the sake of throoughness, identify the server process and check its status with a ps -ef |grep

Probably not without further intervention by the systems administrator.

You must first create a start/stop script in /sbin/init.d

Generally I make and modify a copy of /sbin/init.d/template as /sbin/init.d/oracle

Then you must issue in the script the correct command to start/stop oracle. This should be su - oracle -c "database commaned"

This switches to the oracle user, or whatever non-root user owns the oracle binaries. It must not be root. It then uses that user environment and starts or stops the database.

ln -s /sbin/init.d/oracle /sbin/rc3.d/S900oracle

ln -s /sbin/init.d/oracle /sbin/rc2.d/K100oracle

Creates soft links for automatic start and stop of the database to the script you just created.

Plan some debugging if you can't borrow the script from a working server.

The thing to remember about start/stop scripts is they are run without environment. The need PATH, they need everyting handled by the script author. Kind of like babies.
