  1. That’s good news. It’s a rather quirky service but we use it for all our production servers (non-RAC) and it works well. Oracle didn’t seem to have a planned replacement for it.

    • Simon,

      there was a replacement planned – thus the deprecation notice for RESTART. But things have changed now. And therefore RESTART is (still) fully supported and nothing is deprecated anymore.

      Cheers
      Mike
