This appendix describes how to stop all processes in an Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) database, in preparation for installing Database Vault.
Note:Before you make any changes to the Oracle software, Oracle recommends that you create a backup of the Oracle Database installation.
To stop all processes in an Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) database, use the following steps:
Note:You must perform these steps in the order listed.
Establish the Oracle Database logical name as follows:
Login to OpenVMS using the Oracle 10.2 administrator's account.
ORAUSER for the installation you want to upgrade.
$ @DISK:[DIR]ORAUSER 'sid'
In this example,
DISK:[DIR] is the location of the existing 10.2.0.4 installation.
Shut down any processes in the Oracle home on each node that can access a database.
Shut down all RAC instances on all nodes. To shut down all RAC instances for a database, enter the following command, where
db_name is the name of the database:
$ SRVCTL STOP DATABASE "-d" db_name
Stop the database listener.
$ SRVCTL STOP LISTENER "-n" node_name
node_name is the name of the database listener on the node where the command is run.
Note:You must run the preceding command on all nodes. You can run the
SRVCTLcommand from any node in the Oracle RAC cluster.
