Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Concurrent operations to open and close different PDB instances may cause these instances to hang indefinitely. 

Take this example below, let say you have 10 PDBs named PDB1, PDB2, etc. Upon the execution of below sequence of commands several times in a row, it will eventually hang:

a) at instance 1, alter pluggable database pdb1 close instances = all;
b) at instance 1, alter pluggable database all open;
c) at instance 2, alter pluggable database all open;


Using multiple PDBs with CDB.
