MC Service guard and Oracle

Hello All,

I have a question regarding MC service guard with Oracle. When It trys to failover, Does it requires oracle restart?

I have two HP machines and setup with MC service guard. But, Whenever HP has a problem, It didn't failover. I mean MC looks ok but Oracle is always in the middle of backup.
And, Oracle had a problem because it was in the middle of backup.

Thanks

The database is in backup mode, you need to switch in end backup mode, and restart

Hope this will help you.

Yeah, I know. So, I'm looking for solution to avoid manual recovery.

You can set a flag when you stat your backup that MC/SG can look for first and if it sees the flag, you can run a script to take oracle outta backup mode before doing and oracle shutdown and restart after cluster has switched over.

I have samples of script taking oracle outta backup mode that we use.
