Re: Solaris 10 - 10g - auto startup and shutdown with ASM

Have you checked the startup logs to see if any errors are report? Since you are using ASM, it needs to be up prior to the database services starting. The configuration I have is for a RAC enviornment. On testing system reboot, all services come up without any problems - of course the environment I have differs from yours. Why not start initially with having ASM boot up automatically, check the system logs for startup and the asm alert log - are there any messages being logged if so what are they?

Hi all,

I have a Solaris 10 machine with installed (it was

Automatic startup and shutdown does not work. I have an on SR with Oracle Support, which originated on 23 Oct 2006. We did get the automatic startup working, but not the shutdown.

I was asked to upgrade to, which was supposed to solve the problem, however, it has brought me back to square 1, no auto startup, and no auto shutdown. Orcale Support seem to be dragging their feet on this matter, I get the feeling that they do not have the solution.

Anyone have a similar installation which works? Or any pointers where I can do my own research to crack this?

As an aside, I'm getting grief from the anti Unix fanatics in the office who point at Windows and tell me "it just works", but what the heck eh.
