Automatic Startup and Shutdown the Oracle Database and Listener on Linux

Automatic Shutdown and Startup of Oracle Database and Listener on Linux

We need to edit the /etc/oratab file and make sure that the databases are set to Y.

ora11g:/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1:Y
ora12c:/u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1:Y

Next we will create a script to take advantage of the dbshut and dbstart commands when you are shutting down or rebooting the server.

vi /etc/init.d/dbora

#!/bin/sh
# chkconfig: 345 99 10
# description: Service to start and stop Oracle Database and Listener
#
# processname: oracle
# config: /etc/oratab
# pidfile: /var/run/oracle.pid

# Source function library.
. /etc/init.d/functions

RETVAL=0
ORA_OWNER=”oracle”
ORA_HOME=”/u01/app/oracle/product/11.2.0/dbhome_1″

# See how we were called.

prog=”oracle”

start() {
echo -n $”Starting $prog: “
su – $ORA_OWNER -c “$ORA_HOME/bin/dbstart $ORA_HOME”
RETVAL=$?
echo
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && touch /var/lock/subsys/dbora

return $RETVAL
}

stop() {
echo -n $”Stopping $prog: “
su – $ORA_OWNER -c “$ORA_HOME/bin/dbshut $ORA_HOME”
RETVAL=$?
echo
[ $RETVAL -eq 0 ] && rm -r /var/lock/subsys/dbora

return $RETVAL
}

restart() {
stop
start
}

case “$1” in
start)
start
;;
stop)
stop
;;
restart)
restart
;;
*)
echo $”Usage: $0 {start|stop|restart}”
exit 1
esac

exit $?

Now change permissions and make the service active.

[root@oracle ~]# chgrp  dba /etc/init.d/dbora
[root@oracle ~]# chmod 750 /etc/init.d/dbora
[root@oracle ~]# chkconfig –level 345 dbora on
