Thats why I stated to always keep /etc/oratab updated, dbshut and
dbstart are based on it. :-)

Thanks for sharing your experience.

We used to have our SAs restart using a script until the day the standby
database server crashed and they used the regular database startup
script to restart it.

After that we asked to be called.

Why not give the SA the minimum knowledge to use dbshut/dbstart and
always update your /etc/oratab when you create, update or remove an
instance? I've worked this way for years and SAs always did a good
job. Of course I always change the shutdown method to immediate on

If I cannot trust that Oracle do a minimum quality health-check at
startup I should not sleep by other reasons.

Just my thinking.

Best regards,
