Parameter Description
-diskgroup diskgroup_name

The Oracle ASM disk group name

-node "node_list"

Comma-delimited list of node names on which to stop the disk group resource

Note: This parameter can be used only with Oracle Clusterware.


This parameter does not stop the databases that depend on the disk group you are stopping, but instead performs a forceful dismount that may cause those databases to fail.


An example of this command is:

$ srvctl stop diskgroup -diskgroup diskgroup1 -node "mynode1,mynode2" -force
