Hi,
I have 2 node 11gR2 RAC running on AIX 6.1, after I shutdown the database and restart crs using crsctl start crs, ASM instance comes back up but not the database and I had to start the database using srvctl, isn't that the database should come up when I start the crs? can someone clarify?
Thanks

It would be helpful if you followed Posting Guidelines - http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/88153/0/311

Computers/OS are dumb & only do what instructed to do.
If you did not include DB startup script, then DB does not automagically start

but wouldn't the CRS start the ASM instance and the database when we issue crsctl start crs?

you report the DB does not start & I believe you.

post excerpt from script that show the DB is supposed to start (& fails to start)

Perhaps the database isn't registered in the CRS for automatic start? Check this with
srvctl config database -d whatever
and set this with
srvctl modify database -d whatever -y automatic
or possibly, if the nodes are busy, the automatic startup of the instances can fail because of timing issues.

(ps - anyone know why the switch is "-y"? Actually, a whole lot of the switches in srvctl are bizarre)
