Auto-start Oracle on reboot problem

Oracle on Solaris 10 (64-bit SPARC)

I'm having a problem getting my Oracle database to auto-start upon reboot (init -6) on . Yet when I run the dbora script manually (./dbora start) using the root account, the database starts without a problem (i.e. the script works as expected).

-rwxr-xr-x 1 oracle dba 1193 Nov 18 19:03 /etc/init.d/dbora

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Jan 7 11:20 /etc/rc0.d/K01oracle ->

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 Jan 7 11:19 /etc/rc2.d/S99oracle ->

My UNIX Admin tells me there are no errors in any log files during the reboot. I wouldn't expect any errors as it seems to skip both shutdown and startup of Oracle and as previously mentioned I am successful (shutdown and startup) when running the script manually after the server is up.

I don't encounter this problem on another server running Solaris 9/Oracle, so I'm not sure if Solaris 10 is somehow different.

Anyone else encounter this problem on Solaris 10 and find a resolution?
