Q

Database instances starting with the system boot

I am working on Oracle9i on the Linux platform and want my database instances to start with the system boot. I have made changes in oratab file but in vain. I have also tried a few other things, but still it is not working. Please tell me the steps to configure it, along with the prerequisites for it.

The ORATAB file just determines which databases the dbshut and dbstart scripts will operate on. But you'll need to run dbstart on system bootup in order for this file to be read and for the databases to start automatically. You'll need to ask your Linux administrator to add an entry to /etc/init.d to run the appropriate script. More information can be found in the Oracle documentation, specifically the following URL: http://download-east.oracle.com/docs/html/A96167_01/post-inst.htm#BHACBJFH
