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.

System z: WebSphere Application Server

This report is part of a series that examines common designs in the discrete server environment and presents the equivalent design using virtual machines for System z9 and Linux for System z. The paper presents the original design for a WebSphere environment, the System z9 alternative design and a discussion of the pros and cons of the alternate design from a technical and business viewpoint.

This paper is targeted to decision makers and technical staff responsible for evaluating platform hosting decisions. Some technical familiarity with infrastructure design principles is assumed.
