Re: why I can not reboot my linux?

Dear all, I check the previous question about this, for I remember that I have asked similar question, (Alas, it is the same machine once again), but got not resolve way. first of all, I know how to shutdown the oracle, i use "shutdown abort", and it useless, however, I need it to work again ASAP, and unfortunately, I have to drive hundreds miles to reset it, it I have to do.

so I am in trouble.

Re: why I can not reboot my linux?

can you kill oracle with "kill -9" ? You say you cant... are you root ?


the "shutdown -r" must not be working cause it is waiting for some process (maybe oracle) to shutdown first.

Re: why I can not reboot my linux?

as long as I can not "shutdown -r now", I use killall -9 oracle, however, once I
ps -A |grep orace, all they been there just like nothing happen

Hi,

If Oracle is not willing to shutdown? Can you still log on as oracle user and try to connect with svrmgrl to the oracle instance.
Then connect internal and do a shutdown abort.

If that does the trick you should be able to shutdown your linux system.

Sorry, did not read you second post complete, so ignore mine. You already know how to do the oracle shutdown.

Hi,
i think "killall -9 oracle" will not kill oracle processes. These processess are running under user oracle, but they have different name.

Re: why I can not reboot my linux?

try this command (as root):

/sbin/reboot -if

this will force reboot the system. it will also first bring down the network interfaces and sync the disks (so you should not lose any data).
