Goal

This document is intended to assist field support and/or customer with general procedures for turning an Oracle VTL server off.

This technical instruction deals with issues relating to stopping VTL services before shutting down the server operating system.  Using reboot, shutdown, init 0, or init 6, causes a Solaris server to stop the operating system, so the server can be turned off, or rebooted. On a VTL server, before using these commands, the VTL services must be stopped gracefully. Otherwise unpredictable events like panics may occur. This may be caused by the operating system shutting down VTL services out of order.
