Preventing Automatic Instance Restart

When a node in RAC stops & re-start, oracle clusterware try to start the instance as soon as node starts. This may not be desirable, because instance start-up may fail, if system components on which instance depends are not ready

For example: Volume Manager is not started, file system is not mounted automatically

This scenario might occur, if oracle clusterware does not manage system components.

To manager automatic restart, we can use AUTO_START attribute.

AUTO_START parameter may have three values

1. always (1)
2. restore (0)
3. never (2)

How to change this parameter?

$ crs_stat -p > .cap

then change AUTO_START to a new value

$ crs_register -u

verify the change by

$ crs_stat -p
