unable to shutdown application/database

I'm in a tough situation. I'm running ECC6 on Oracle10g on a Solaris 10 box

The home directory of user <sapsid>adm is lost & there is no backup for it . Hence I cannot log in as user <sapsid>adm and shutdown the application & database for backup

However in directory /sapmnt/PRD/exe I can see executables files stopsap , stopj2eedb & stopdb as seen below





root@PRD#ls -ltr stop *

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 49066 Jan 26 2007 stopsap

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11119 Jan 26 2007 stopj2eedb

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11119 Jan 26 2007 stopdb

is it safe to use these files to stop & start the application and database ?

is there a way round this. ?

Try as per juan said.

Try to login with ORA<SID> user then shutdown the db and take full backup of the system.

And for the user id <SID>adm issue.

Try to create new user id and then copy the env files from some other user id which is user for SAP system.

and modify all the *.sh and *csh files.

In which you have to mention the SID , oracle home, NLS settings.

and after that shutdown the sap sys as usual.

it was a Solaris problem. I solved as follows

Commented out 3rd line in the file /etc/auto_master i.e.


/net -hosts -nosuid,nobrowse

#/home auto_home -browse

Restart autofs service ie

svcadm restart autofs

the files (ie for SAP users SAPSID>adm & ora<SID> ) in the home directory reappeared

you could logon as ora<sid> and stop the database manually... then take a full offline backup of the DB.

(A) Stoping the appl and CI server

Login to SID<adm>

Run the "stopsap r3"

(B) Database shutdown

Login to ora<SID>

#sqlplus /nolog

SQL> connect /as sysdba

SQL> shutdown immediate
