If your configuration of Sun Cluster Support for Oracle RAC is correct, Sun Cluster ensures that Oracle RAC is stopped and started correctly when you shut down and boot the cluster.
This task requires downtime. If you are verifying the installation and configuration of Sun Cluster Support for Oracle RAC on a production cluster where other data services are running, omit this task.
This procedure provides the long forms of the Sun Cluster maintenance commands. Most commands also have short forms. Except for the forms of the command names, the commands are identical. For a list of the commands and their short forms, see Appendix A, Sun Cluster Object-Oriented Commands, in Sun Cluster Data Services Planning and Administration Guide for Solaris OS.
Shut down the cluster.

Verify that all Oracle RAC resource groups and their resources are online.
# clresourcegroup status
The bringing online of all Oracle RAC resource groups might require several minutes to complete. If you perform this step before the resource groups are enabled on all nodes, the status on some nodes might be offline. In this situation, repeat this step until the status of all Oracle RAC resource groups is online on all nodes.
