Try copying an init.ora file for a RAC system to a new system and start up the instance (restore control files and just mount the database for database restore). Wait a bit - and then try to connect to the original database service name (example: sqlplus user/password_at_original:1521/ORCL. Database is ORCL with instances ORCL{n}. You will eventually start getting ORA-01033 errors - database is starting up or shutting down. It will drive you mad until you realize that (and search MOS) the new database has registered with the original listener and it is the only one the SCAN tries to send the new connections. Can we say DoS!!! Luckily, the "original" in this case was a TEST cluster! Received on Fri Apr 27 2012 - 16:56:07 CDT
