The srvctl config database command returns output similar to the following:

$ srvctl config database -db myDB
Database unique name: myDB
Database name:
Oracle home: /scott_st2/oracle
Oracle user: scott
Password file:
Start options: open
Stop options: immediate
Database role: PRIMARY
Management policy: AUTOMATIC
Server pools: myDB
Database instances:
Disk Groups:
Services: scottsvc1
Type: RACOneNode
Online relocation timeout: 30
Instance name prefix: myDB
Candidate servers: node1 node2
Database is administrator managed

The preceding sample output shows the database type as RACOneNode, an Oracle RAC One Node database. Other potential types are RAC and SingleInstance. The Online relocation timeout, Instance name prefix, and Candidate servers fields only apply to Oracle RAC One Node databases and do not display for the other two database types. Similarly, the Database instances field is empty because the database type is RACOneNode.
