my dbstart script starts manually now how do I create softlinks to make sure it starts each time the machine is rebooted by the way my version is LINUX
you'll need to go in /etc ... look there for scripts in rc1.d, rc2.d and so on.
some scripts have a name beginning with S (like start), and some others have a name beginning with K (like kill).
these scripts start and stop what must be started and stopped according to the runlevel your box is actually using.
you just have to add scripts in the right directories for your database to automatically startup and shutdown.
my boxes run in runlevel 3 (who -r to know the runlevel you're in), so I have added 1 start script in runlevel 3 and 4 kill scripts in runlevels 0, 1, 2 and S
(I called him S80oracle since 80 was free on my system, check yours so you do not have 2 scripts with the same number).
# ls rc*/*ora*
here is my S80 script :
su $ORA_OWNER -c "$ORA_HOME/admin/admin_ora start" >/dev/null 2>&1
note : easy, isn't it ??
