Needs scripts to start oracle 9i

I have successfully install oracle 9i database
on HP 11i. Currently, i do not have any script to test this database. If it is possible would you show me some sample of them?...

Re: Needs scripts to start oracle 9i

Hi,

Try this one:

#!/sbin/sh
#
# Args:
# start : start Oracle
# stop : stop Oracle
#
# Return Values:
# 0 : successfull completion of task
# 1 : failure to complete task

# NOTE: If your script executes in run state 0 or state 1, then /usr might
# not be available. Do not attempt to access commands or files in
# /usr unless your script executes in run state 2 or greater. Other
# file systems typically not mounted until run state 2 include /var
# and /opt.

rval=0

# Check the exit value of a command run by this script. If non-zero, the
# exit code is echoed to the log file and the return value of this script
# is set to indicate failure.

set_return() {
x=$?
if [ $x -ne 0 ]; then
echo "EXIT CODE: $x"
rval=1 # script FAILed
fi
}

case "$1" in
'start_msg')
# Emit a _short_ message relating to running this script with
# the "start" argument; this message appears as part of the checklist.
echo "Starting Oracle"
;;
'stop_msg')
# Emit a _short_ message relating to running this script with
# the "stop" argument; this message appears as part of the checklist.
echo "Stopping Oracle"
;;
'start')
echo "Start Oracle"
/usr/bin/su - oracle -c "dbstart"
/usr/bin/su - oracle -c "lsnrctl start LISTENER"
set_return
;;
'stop')
echo "Stop Oracle"
/usr/bin/su - oracle -c "lsnrctl stop LISTENER"
/usr/bin/su - oracle -c "dbshut"
set_return
;;
*)
echo "usage: $0 {start|stop}"
rval=1
;;
esac

exit $rval

If you wish to have it enabled for automatic startup of the system you can use the above script in /sbin/init.d/oracle and then create symbolic links like below:

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

Stop:
ln -s /sbin/init.d/oracle /sbin/rc2.d/K900oracle

Re: Needs scripts to start oracle 9i

hi,

Oracle does NOT create a boot-time auto-start script. edit /etc/oratab and change 'N' to 'Y' for the database you want to autostart. Then create the following file as /sbin/init.d/oracle

#!/sbin/sh
#Match ORACLE_HOME with whatever is in oracle/.profile

case $1 in
start)
su - oracle -c $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart

su - oracle -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl start"

exit 0
;;

stop)
su - oracle -c "$ORACLE_HOME/bin/lsnrctl stop"
su - oracle -c $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbshut
;;
esac


#cd /sbin/init.d
ln -s ../init.d/oracle /etc/rc2.d/S95oracle
ln -s ../init.d/oracle /etc/rc2.d/K15oracle
chmod 0755 /etc/init.d/oracle

Re: Needs scripts to start oracle 9i

Hi

Your quiestion is not quite clear. If you have installed the ORacle9i Software and want to CREATE a database, you'll have to issue the create database statements ++++

Have attached a script that creates directories for datafiles etc and creates a database and runs necessary scripts.

Re: Needs scripts to start oracle 9i

Hi Andreas,

Thank you for the scripts. I haven't start to use it yet but I do have several questions in reagards to it?
1. What steps prior to it do I need to know?
create vg? logical volumes?
2. This script will be executed from which user? root or oracle?
3. Do I need to edit any file before issued this script to run?

Database is not my expertise, and please be patient with me. Thank you very much for your time.
