2)How you stop Your RAC Database configue with ASM?
Ans: This is a bit tricky.But a simple logic is Database depends on storage and storage dependson node.Hence We can tell like this,Important is to remember that node application and cluster isstarted and stopped only with 'root'user or the user having sudo privilege to do this in /etc/sudoers file.One more point to remember always asm instanceshould be started first.
