hot to auto start oracle application server on Redhat AS3 at the boot time


I have a Redhat AS 3 server and it is running oracle application server and infrastructure 9i.

For me to start this I have to start many process, (database, LDAP etc). Can some one tell me how to start this using service command and or how to start all this when the server boots up

can some one give me a reference

Thank you

To use service to start it you have to have created an init script in /etc/init.d that does the same steps you would do manually.

I recently wrote a startup init for what we do on RHEL 3 for Oracle Mid Tier but it is 10g Mobile rather than 9i.

Also most DBAs do NOT like to automatically start databases. This is because if the system crashed (had a panic, hardware failure, or power outage) it is not known what state the database was in. An automatic attempt would change the DB to the point where you might not be able to roll your archive logs forward.

This doesn't mean you can't write scripts to do it - just that they should probably not be automatic. Here the DBAs write scripts they call SIDctl for each instance we run. They execute these scripts.

If your app and DB are on the same machine then you probably don't want to start app automatically because it shouldn't be started until after the DB is up.
