Starting and Stopping Oracle 10g
To start and stop Oracle 10g using the "wajig start|stop" commands, we need to edit the /etc/oratab file, and create the appropriate script in /etc/init.d. First edit the /etc/oratab file. The format of this file is:
SID:ORACLE_HOME:AUTO_START

Put a Y in the AUTO_START field of the databases you want to start automagically, and a N for the ones you don't. Your file might look like this to start databases test1 and test2, and not start test3:
test1:/u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.0/db_1:Y test2:/u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.0/db_1:Y test3:/u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.0/db_1:N

Now we need to create the init.d script.
#!/bin/bash # # Run-level Startup script for the Oracle Instance and Listener # # chkconfig: 345 91 19 # description: Startup/Shutdown Oracle listener and instance ORA_HOME="/u01/app/oracle/product/10.1.0/Db\_1" ORA_OWNR="oracle" # if the executables do not exist -- display error if [ ! -f $ORA_HOME/bin/dbstart -o ! -d $ORA_HOME ] then echo "Oracle startup: cannot start" exit 1

fi # depending on parameter -- startup, shutdown, restart # of the instance and listener or usage display case "$1" in start) # Oracle listener and instance startup echo -n "Starting Oracle: " su - $ORA_OWNR -c "$ORA_HOME/bin/lsnrctl start" su - $ORA_OWNR -c $ORA_HOME/bin/dbstart touch /var/lock/subsys/oracle echo "OK" ;; stop) # Oracle listener and instance shutdown echo -n "Shutdown Oracle: " su - $ORA_OWNR -c "$ORA_HOME/bin/lsnrctl stop" su - $ORA_OWNR -c $ORA_HOME/bin/dbshut rm -f /var/lock/subsys/oracle echo "OK" ;; reload|restart) $0 stop $0 start ;; *) echo "Usage: $0 start|stop|restart|reload" exit 1 esac exit 0

(You may need to change the listener.ora to have the IP of the box, as opposed to the hostname, otherwise clients machines may not be able to connect.) To make the script run at boot-time, and let you "wajig start|stop oracle", do the following:
ln ln ln ln ln -s -s -s -s -s /etc/init.d/oracle /etc/init.d/oracle /etc/init.d/oracle /etc/init.d/oracle /etc/init.d/oracle /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/S99oracle /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/S99oracle /etc/rc.d/rc4.d/S99oracle /etc/rc.d/rc0.d/K01oracle /etc/rc.d/rc6.d/K01oracle

Now we can start and stop oracle by:
wajig start oracle wajig stop oracle
