-f dbshut

This BRSPACE function  shuts the database instance. For more information, see Shutting Down the Database with BR*Tools.

Function options:

·        -f|-force: Forces an immediate shutdown of the database instance, even if SAP users are connected

Default: Does not force a shutdown.

·        -i|-instance: Defines which database instances are to be shut

Syntax: -i|-instance all_inst|all_up|<instance>|<instance_list>

Ў        all_inst shuts all instances of an Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC). With option –f|-force, first starts up stopped instances before shutting them down, enabling a clean shutdown of aborted instances.

Ў        all_up shuts all database instances that are currently up, that is, running

Ў        <instance> shuts the specified instance

Ў        <instance_list> shuts the specified instances

Default: the database instance defined by the ORACLE_SID environment variable

You only need to specify database instances for Oracle RAC.

·        -m|-mode: Defines the mode in which the database instance shuts

Syntax: -m|-mode immediate|normal|transactional|abort

Ў        immediate shuts the database immediately after ending all user sessions and stopping all transactions (open transactions are rolled back)

Ў        normal shuts the database cleanly after waiting for all users to disconnect.

Ў        transactional shuts the database cleanly after waiting for all transactions to finish

Ў        abort shuts the database immediately without rolling back open transactions

For more information on shutdown modes, see the Oracle documentation.

Default: immediate
