After issuing a 'shutdown immediate' command, if the command does not execute after an hour, the Oracle Server automatically cancels the operation. A message will appear in the alert log as follows:
SHUTDOWN: Active sessions prevent database close operation
Unfortunately this has the added effect of shutting down all the job queue slaves as part of the shutdown process. Any jobs listed in the DBA_JOBS view will not run. This can affect a wide variety of functions, such as statistics gathering, replication propagation, materialized view refresh, etc.
