On restart of the OS (Solaris 5.10), I need the Oracle 9i database 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? You have advised:
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:How can this task of running dbstart and dbshut by SysAdmin be done automatically?
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.
