Restarting 9i database automatically after OS reboot

Hi, Happy New Year. This is the first time I am asking a question to you. After applying a restart of the OS (Solaris 5.10), the Oracle 9i database has to be restarted automatically when the OS is rebooted. What script should run or where does it have to be saved so as not to do a manual startup of the DB? Thanks.

In Solaris, you should have a /var/opt/oracle/oratab file. That file should have an entry for each instance on your server that looks like the following:
The "N" at the end tells the dbstart script to not start this instance. Change the "N" to a "Y." Next, have your SysAdmin run the $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart script on server reboot. The SysAdmin should also run the $ORACLE_HEOM/bin/dbshut script on server shutdown.
