Didn’t get time to reply earlier. In case of RAC database (10.2) you need to perform following steps 1)Start CRS (as root) #crsctl start crs Actually if you have enabled automatic startup of resources and configured asm-instance dependency correctly, then it will start all resources automatically. Otherwise go to below steps 2)Start Nodeapps $srvctl start nodeapps -n <noden> 3)Start ASM instance srvctl start asm -n <noden> Repeat steps on other node. You can use srvctl command from any node 4) Now start cluster database $srvctl start database -d <dbname> You can also start a single instance using following command srvctl start instance -d <db_name> -i <inst_name> Author Posts You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
