The Oracle Restart Feature
The Oracle Restart feature provides the ability to start, stop and restart an Oracle Database or Oracle ASM instance (if used) on the same server as part of the management provided by Oracle Grid Infrastructure. The Oracle Restart feature is available via the Oracle Grid Infrastructure Standalone and the Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a Cluster deployment and will be applied to Single Instance Oracle Databases only. The potential restart of an Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) or Oracle RAC One Node database instance is governed by a different feature provided by Oracle Grid Infrastructure for a Cluster deployment. Consequently, Oracle Restart does not provide failover of any kind. The restart of an Oracle Database instance provided by Oracle Restart requires the server, the operating system as well as the Oracle Grid Infrastructure stack to be running properly in order to succeed.
The deprecation of Oracle Restart has been withdrawn
Effective July 10th 2017, Oracle has withdrawn the deprecation of Oracle Restart.
Enhancement Requests filed against Oracle Restart during the deprecation period
Defects (a.k.a. BUGs) were addressed during the deprecation period of Oracle Restart and BUG fixes (patches) have been provided as necessary. Enhancement Requests were not entertained during this period and may need to be re-opened. Enhancement Requests against Oracle Restart will be entertained going forward, as long as they do not intend to extend the restart functionality to non-Oracle resources. In other words, Oracle Restart provides the ability to start, stop and restart an Oracle Database or Oracle ASM instance on the same server and this functionality will no be extended to include the management of user-defined resources. If such a management of additional resources is required, a single node cluster should be used instead.
No immediate actions need to be taken, as the deprecation of Oracle Restart has been withdrawn.
