    Automatic startup and shutdown Oracle 10gR2 on RHEL AS 4 per Tim@oracle-base.com

    Script /etc/init.d/dbora recommended in the article "Oracle 10gR2
    installation on RHEL AS 4" at


    might cause your system to hang during boot up. Please, be advised, that instructions regarding automatic startup and shutdown Oracle 10gR2 on RHEL AS 4.X suggested by Tim@oracle-base.com are valid only for non-ASM databases

    Just read carefully the comments to $ORACLE_HOME/bin/dbstart:-

    # If ASM instances are to be started with this script, it cannot
    # be used inside an rc*.d directory, and should be invoked from
    # rc.local only. Otherwise, the CSS service may not be available
    # yet, and this script will block init from completing the boot
    # cycle.
