Hi All,
I am at a client site which has installed oracle 10g on solaris 10. everytime I perform a shutdown immediate the system hangs and does not come back to the sql prompt. I have to do a system reboot to get the system back. The database starts fine and there are no errors in the alert log file. Does anyone have any similar problems with 10g not shutting down correctly?

I hade similar problem. Try 'shutdown abort' Then 'startup' (it will take a while) and then 'shutdown immediate.'

I think it is cleaning up after itself and logging off users, perhaps even switching logs, when it seems to hang. Have you let it try the shutdown immedate for at least 20 or 30 minutes depending on the number of users?

Do you have anough disk space? Is it writting alert or other logs?

More information please.
