    Thanks for sharing

    It wont work on all system tho. For example on Solaris there is no /etc/oratab only /var/opt/oracle/oratab

      True, we only use HPUX so I had not tested it elsewhere. However it is pretty easy to modify.

      I have worked on Sun/Solaris sites that symbolically link /var/opt/oracle/oratab to /etc/oratab to maintain the same scripts across different Unix servers (and also because so many DBAs are used to looking at /etc/oratab to see what databases are created etc)

        Or the script can me modified to accept a parameter to point where the oratab is :-) or have a function to check what OS is in place

        A good start nonetheless.
