YaST-friendly Oracle Instance Startup Scripts

Appended below are 4 files which are a insserv-safe version of the Oracle instance startup script, modified to take advantage of the "standard" Yast features and /etc/sysconfig support. I also split up the database startup and the SQL*net startup by putting each into a separate script and adding a dependency on the database startup for sqlnet to initialize. All the configuration variables are pulled out into /etc/sysconfig files, and you can edit them individually with the YaST sysconfig editor.

Note that the /etc/sysconfig file related to each script is the same name as the init script, allowing you to use the same scripts for multiple database instances by renaming the script to a new name (eg, oracledb1, oracledb2, etc), doing an insserv on the renamed script, and the associated parameters are drawn automagically from the /etc/sysconfig file of the same name. Leads to a little bit of duplication, but it also means that you can't screw up the entire environment by mangling one config file.

To use these, just 'insserv oracledb; insserv sqlnet; cp oracledb /etc/sysconfig/oracledb; cp sqlnet /etc/sysconfig/sqlnet' and you can issue 'oracledb start; sqlnet start' and watch the fun. They even get the nice colored status indicators that the SuSE-supplied scripts get...8-)

Warning: check where lines end -- mailing these may have munged them somewhat.

/etc/init.d/oracledb

This is the actual init script itself.
