RE: shutdown abort / startup restrict / shutdown vs. shutdown imm

That is EXACTLY what happened a week and a half ago. We had to do a shutdown abort because it wouldn't go down, and when we tried to restart it, it wouldn't come back... redo log corruption... and this being test... it isn't in archive log mode (another "valid solution" but no longer really an option in our case).

After we can get back in to the building after the teeny little fire and vandalism thing we have going this morning and I can get all concerned parties in the same place (sans smoke and water) my suggestion is going to be that since we don't know why, and there isn't much of a work around yet, that test and development (at least for now) go into archive log mode, as well.

Couldn't agree with you more. I recently had a database fail to restart after a shutdown abort because the redo log got corrupted somewhere along the line. Ended up doing a full restore and roll forward. Admittedly, this was on 7.1.4 (don't ask;-)

I have steel belted radial tires on my car that are supposed to be puncture resistant. Is this a good reason for me to go out of my way to drive by a construction site every morning? By my way of thinking, no. If my regular road is blocked and I have no alternative, then I will drive by the construction site reasonably confident that the debris will not puncture my tires. If I'm in a big hurry and driving by the construction site is significantly quicker, then I will consider it. But, I don't go out of my way looking for trouble.  

Does anyone have a better argument than "I've been doing this for years and it has always worked?"
