Last updated on APRIL 19, 2013

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 11.2.0.1 to 11.2.0.3 [Release 11.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This article explains the option of srvctl to failover the service when we stop the instance.

Normally Clusterware doesn't failover any of the resource during a planned shutdown.
 
The failover will work during unplanned outages and any srvctl shutdown is basically a planned shutdown from a clusterware point of view.
