RAC SRVCTL and CRSCTL useful commands-

Below are some of the commands which we have used regularly in our RAC system. There are many more RAC commands for 11gR2/12c Clusterware and Grid Home you must need to know as a DBA..!

srvctl –help
srvctl –h — a complete list
srvctl modify database -d p20cr120 -s ‘MOUNT’

show parameter CLUSTER_DATABASE
if it is true it is running in RAC
false –no RAC

or

BEGIN
IF dbms_utility.is_cluster_database THEN
dbms_output.put_line(‘Running in SHARED/RAC mode.’);
ELSE
dbms_output.put_line(‘Running in EXCLUSIVE mode.’);
END IF;
END;
/

select instance_name, host_name, archiver, thread#, status from gv$instance
Create the dictionary views needed for RAC by running catclust.sql

SQL> START ?/rdbms/admin/catclust.sql

srvctl start instance -d <db_name> -i <inst_name> —>Starts an instance
srvctl start database -d <db_name> —–>Starts all instances
srvctl stop database -d <db_name> — —->Stops all instances, closes database
srvctl stop instance -d <db_name> -i <inst_name> —–>Stops an instance

Cluster Related Commands:

crs_stat -t —- Shows HA resource status (hard to read)
crsstat —- Ouptut of crs_stat -t formatted nicely
ps -ef|grep d.bin —– crsd.bin evmd.bin ocssd.bin
crsctl check crs —- CSS,CRS,EVM appears healthy
crsctl stop crs —–Stop crs and all other services
crsctl disable crs* —- Prevents CRS from starting on reboot
crsctl enable crs* —– Enables CRS start on reboot

Disable/enable Oracle HAS.(High availabilty services)
crsctl enable/disable has —>command to disable automatic startup of the Oracle High Availability Services stack when the server bounce.

check the current settings :
crsctl config has

Stop the Oracle clusterware stack:
With root user:
crsctl stop crs or crsctl stop has

crsctl start crs or crsctl start has

To start all Oracle RAC instances for a database-
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/srvctl start database -d db_name

To shut down all Oracle RAC instances for a database:

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/srvctl stop database -d db_name

Start/stop the Oracle Instance:
$ORACLE_HOME/bin/srvctl start/stop instance –d db_name –i instance_name

Stop/Start Listener-SCAN_LISTENER:

srvctl stop/start listener -n node1
srvctl stop/start listener -n node2
srvctl stop scan_listener

Stop ASM-

srvctl stop asm [-o stop_options] [-f]
srvctl stop asm -n node1

RAC regular commands:

STOP SEQUENCE

COMMAND DESCRIPTION
——————————————————————————————
srvctl stop database -d ORCL STOP DATABASE
srvctl stop instance -d ORCL -i ORCL1 STOP first INSTANCE (skip it if running ‘stop database’ as that will stop both instances)
srvctl stop instance -d ORCL -i ORCL2 STOP second INSTANCE (skip it if running ‘stop database’ as that will stop both instances)
srvctl stop asm -n NODE1 STOP ASM INSTANCES on NODE 1 (In 11G , we have OCR on ASM so we cannot stop ASM, but if you have OCR in NON-ASM you should stop it)
srvctl stop asm -n NODE2 STOP ASM INSTANCES on NODE 2 (In 11G , we have OCR on ASM so we cannot stop ASM, but if you have OCR in NON-ASM you should stop it)
srvctl stop nodeapps -n NODE1 STOP NODEAPPS on NODE 1
srvctl stop nodeapps -n NODE2 STOP NODEAPPS on NODE 2
/etc/init.d/init.crs stop STOP CRS PROCESSES (AS ROOT USER)

START SEQUENCE-

COMMAND DESCRIPTION
——————————————————————————————-
/etc/init.d/init.crs start START CRS PROCESS (AS ROOT USER)
srvctl start asm -n NODE1 START ASM INSTANCE on node 1
srvctl start asm -n NODE2 START ASM INSTANCE on node 2
srvctl start database -d ORCL START DATABASE
srvctl start instance -d ORCL -i ORCL1 START first INSTANCE (skip it if running ‘start database’ as that will start both instances)
srvctl start instance -d ORCL -i ORCL2 START second INSTANCE (skip it if running ‘start database’, as taht will start both instances)
srvctl start nodeapps -n NODE1 START NODEAPPS on NODE1
srvctl start nodeapps -n NODE2 START NODEAPPS ON NODE2
