starting oracle database automatically

November 13Hits:2

I am using Fedora 8 and Oracle 10g Express Edition.

Every time I start my fedora I have to click on start database.

How can I add startdb.sh to startup so that it automatically executes when Fedora starts?

I have tried adding the path to /etc/rc.d/rc.local but it still doesn't work.


I have even tried to add this script in /etc/init.d/oracle

#!/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/" 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 

and even this doesn't work.

startdb.sh is located at /usr/lib/oracle/xe/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/server/config/scripts/startdb.sh

Chect the execute permission on /etc/init.d/oracle. Test it by running /etc/init.d/oracle start, It should try to start oracle for you.

Check /etc/oratab has an entry for for your database flagged Y in the autostart column.

Check that you have the rc.d links using ls /etc/rc?.d/*oracle. There should be several entries for K19oracle and S91oracle. If not run chkconfig /etc/init.d/oracle and recheck.
