Additional SRVCTL Topics

  • Use SRVCTL to manage Oracle-supplied resources such as listener, instances, disk groups, and networks, and CRSCTL for managing Oracle Clusterware and its resources.


    Oracle strongly discourages directly manipulating Oracle-supplied resources (resources whose names begin with ora) using CRSCTL. This could adversely impact the cluster configuration.

  • Although you may be able to cancel running SRVCTL commands by pressing the Control-C keys, you may corrupt your configuration data by doing this.

    You are strongly advised not to attempt to terminate SRVCTL in this manner.
