Deprecated SRVCTL Subprograms or Commands

A number of SRVCTL commands and parameters have been deprecated in this release:

Single Character Parameters for all SRVCTL Commands

Single-character parameters have been deprecated in Oracle Database 12c. Use the full keyword for each parameter instead. To support older tools and scripts that still use single-character parameters, the current version of SRVCTL supports both single-character parameters and full keyword parameters.

The command reference in this appendix shows the keywords for each SRVCTL command. Table A-2 lists the deprecated single-character parameters.
