shutting down Oracle 10G on RedHat 4


Hello,

I've added the Kill scripts for Oracle (ln -s /etc/init.d/dbora K10dbora) and added them to /etc/rc6.d and /etc/rc0.d - yet Oracle is still not shutting down.

Is there a required directory that the symbloic links have to be put into for redHat?
thanks!

The links need to be in the runlevel (and the one below it) that you have Oracle running in. If "who -r" shows your run level as 3 then put the K10... in rc3.d AND rc2.d.

jilightner, thx for reply.

According to some info I've read:

At run levels 1 and 6 the script is run with a stop parameter, and in run levels 2,3,4,5 it receives a start parameter.

So either this or you is wrong...

Scripts in the format "K##command" are stop scripts and those in the format "S##command" are start scripts.

Since S and 0 are stop runlevels they would ONLY have K## scripts in them. All other run levels can have both K## and S##.

Its always possible there's a distro that does this differently but so far what I've seen only differs in where the files actually are located and additional links to where it wants them. What I wrote works for SVR4 based UNIX, as well as RedHat, Fedora and Debian Linux.

thx for your help.

The software I'm working with actually has a script which makes a call to dbora stop. But the script was looking for a /var/lock/subsys/oracle. In Oracle 10G, it looks as though file no longer gets created - therefore our script was failing.

Added this line to /etc/init.d/dbora to resove issue.

touch /var/lock/subsys/oracle

thanks again
