Auto Start Script for Oracle

Autostart the Oracle DB:
You can also use $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart to startup the database, and $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbshut to shutdown the database. You can place $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart into the /etc/rc.d/rc.local boot script to automatically bring up the database at system boot time. To get $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart and $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbshut working, you need to change the third field for your Oracle SID in /etc/oratab from "N" to "Y".

For example, for the Oracle SID "test" I changed the line in /etc/oratab from:

to read:

I have performed the above procedure and when I just execute dbstart it is working fine but I have to do this at each boot of the server. To get the result I have added the line



but when I reboot the machine it is not going to be execute so I have to start the db manually.
