        Thanks for the information.  What would be the great
frustration, to me & I'm not currently using 10G, is that Oracle has
these "root" daemons that they spawn in this way.  If it's an Oracle
needed process it should be controlled from the dbstart script, not an
inittab  entry.

10g - you won't need a dba

if O'Reilly ever puts out an "Oracle Annoyances" book, having ocssd
running for non-ASM, non-clustered installations in a respawn mode
without supplying the wooden stake to kill the unholy beast - well, it
gets my vote.

Yes, I commented out the line in the file /etc/inittab, but I do not
care to reboot this server on which I barely have a decent connection
thru vnc with no sysadmin at that site for another week. a reboot
could mean an unscheduled trip to Minnesota, which might even be more
inhospitable than Pittsburgh was last Sunday.

Yes, someone was nice enough to post the following on the thread listed

[root@mybox root]# /etc/init.d/init.cssd stop
Shutting down CRS daemon.
Shutting down EVM daemon.
Shutting down CSS daemon.
Shutdown request successfully issued.

Is that too difficult to include in a note, or even in the
btw - Oracle has re-released the 10g R1 for lin32 as, just
like they did for the 9i R2 as


Paul - back to bdbafh mode.
