OraStartStop does not stop the server
I'm running RedHat linux 5.5, and noticed that while OraStartStop was hooked into the right rcN.d locations, and it did start the server correctly when the system came up, it failed to stop the server when the machine was halted or rebooted. Turns out that that the version of OraStartStop (6.0.06) I have didn't touch /var/lock/subsys/OraStartStop when the server came up so rc's behavior is to then not even try to stop it. Added that touch in and now no problems. Just thought I'd pass that on.
