Hi Pete,

But what about shutdown on a normal reboot? I followed the OBE instuctions and removed the rc script that would stop/start the database. Of course the database does a crash recovery. Does any one know if this is what Oracle Corp now expects to be done, that there is no (or at least very little) chance of there being a corruption in the database that cannot be recovered from, when the instance is still running when the server reboots?
The reason why the databases will not be shutdown during server reboot is that ohasd init script is
not creating a lock file in /var/lock/subsys/ during service startup.
During server reboot or shutdown the directory /var/lock/subsys/ will be checked, and only services for which a lock file exist will be cleanly stopped with init scripts. Remaining processes will be killed
by "kill -SIGTERM".

As a workaround include "touch /var/lock/subsys/ohasd" in the ohasd init script.

BTW: the same problem apply to Grid Infrastructure for cluster ...
