Hello,


I an stuck with my counter part DBA in argument regarding changes i have made in oratab file after he installed two new db in server .
Previously there was two DB were running and two entries were there in in oratab after that he created two more DB but i didnt find rellavent entries
in oratab so i just added them in oratab . As per my experience these are industry standards that we need to modify oratab when we add new DB in server accordingly and when we go for decommission of database that time also we have to remove relevant entries from oratab. It is good thing to find at the time of server crash that how many databases were running there before. He just said "it is not required to make any configuration changes. E.g. /etc/orata" please revert back all other irrelevant changes that you had made and your reasons for doing so.

Please give me some lines to counter him on this issue.

Thanks

If you generate database creation scripts with the DBCA utility, you will see this in the driving shell script:
echo You should Add this entry in the /etc/oratab: orcl:/u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1:Y
