      Hi, Experts. Can you tell me that what's this file named 'cssfatal' use for?

        • 1. Re: What's this file use for?

          within oracle11g clusterware, key control files called SCLS_SRC that control some important cluster functions exist since release 10g for oracle rac these control files enable and disable processes,


          such as allowing the oracle11g clusterware processes OPROCD and oslsvmon to be either enabled or disabled, stoping key daemons for clusterware for crsd.bin and ocssd.bin and preventing the


          oracle clusterware from being started up when the machine reboots occur,within the CSSD family of clusterware backgroud processes.


          for the linux os , these control files are located under the following directories /etc/oracle/scls_scr/raclinux1 and /etc/oracle/scls_scr/raclinux1/root.


          the first directory structure under /etc/oracle/scls_scr containts the control file cssfatal,


          whereas the secondary directory structure located under the /etc/oracle/scls_scr/{nodename}/root contains the other configuration file required for

          the CSSD process.

            oracle/cssfatal - indicates is ocssd should be running in FATAL mode. In our case we should have 'disable'. FATAL mode is used only when we have a cluster installation
