Sometime shutdown abort is necessary. However, its not recommended. I would rather not risk having to recover a database w/o a good reason. If all that is needed is to monitor a shutdown immediate. there are a lot of ways to handle that. If nothing else, you can tail the alert log, and see the id thats keep the instance form shutting down, then kill that session. That would be much safer than an abnormal termination of the instance.

What's wrong with shutdown abort? Sometimes it is necessary. In flight transactions get rolled back either way. -- Jared Still Certifiable Oracle DBA and Part Time Perl Evangelist
