Run control script for Oracle


Hi - I have a newly built RHEL 5.2 machine and Oracle (10.2.04)was just loaded. I have a startup script that was provided by one of my coworker admins, which "works" but I need info on exactly where to put it, and whatever else needs to be done to correctly start/stop the oracle deamons. Would rc4.d be the right place???

You can start these type of scripts thru /etc/rc.local system script.
Check your script for a line which is something like below :

"# chkconfig: 345 26 74".

If this line is there then you can do chkconfig -add <script file> and control it thru chkconfig

Hope this helps.

Hi kutty_prasad -

Thanks...
I did this:

chkconfig --add dbora

and it apparently did this, that I looked at...

[root@s1 rc0.d]# ls -al *ora*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jan 13 16:07 K65dbora -> ../init.d/dbora
[root@s1 rc0.d]#
[root@s1 rc0.d]# pwd
/etc/rc0.d
[root@s1 rc0.d]# cd ../rc1.d
[root@s1 rc1.d]# ls -al *ora*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jan 13 16:07 K65dbora -> ../init.d/dbora
[root@s1 rc1.d]#
[root@s1 rc1.d]# cd ../rc2.d
[root@s1 rc2.d]#
[root@s1 rc2.d]# ls -al *ora*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jan 13 16:07 S30dbora -> ../init.d/dbora
[root@s1 rc2.d]#
[root@s1 rc2.d]# cd ../rc3.d
[root@s1 rc3.d]#
[root@s1 rc3.d]# ls -al *ora*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jan 13 16:07 S30dbora -> ../init.d/dbora
[root@s1 rc3.d]#
[root@s1 rc3.d]# cd ../rc4.d
[root@s1 rc4.d]#
[root@s1 rc4.d]# ls -al *ora*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 15 Jan 13 16:07 S30dbora -> ../init.d/dbora
[root@s1 rc4.d]#

Does this look right? What has to be done with /etc/rc.local ?

You can ignore rc.local for now since the script will be controlled thru chkconfig command.

Run the following command to verify if things are as expected.

# service dbora start <- This should start the script.

# chkconfig --list dbora <- This will tell you whether the dbora will start automatically or not when runlevel changes or when the host reboots.

Hi kutty_prasad -

Thanks a lot for the info... I did the last thing you suggested, and it looked good at face-value. Although when I shutdown or reboot the machine, it appears that Oracle does not shutdown correctly. After the machine comes up, I look in the Oracle logs and do not see any entry in there of Oracle shutting down. Oracle daemons DO get started though when the system boots....

If we shutdown Oracle manually, the Oracle logfile DOES get populated with shutdown info...

Any ideas?
