srvctl stop asm

Stops an Oracle ASM instance.

Syntax and Parameters

Use the srvctl stop asm command with the following syntax:

srvctl stop asm [-proxy] [-node node_name] 
   [-stopoption stop_options] [-force]


  • To manage Oracle ASM on Oracle Database 12c installations, use SRVCTL in the Oracle Grid Infrastructure home for a cluster (Grid home). If you have Oracle RAC or Oracle Database installed, then you cannot use SRVCTL in the database home to manage Oracle ASM.

  • You cannot use this command when OCR is stored in Oracle ASM because it will not stop Oracle ASM. To stop Oracle ASM you must shut down Oracle Clusterware.
