    shutdown rac database: srvctl vs shutdown

    Sivaprasad S
      I am new to Oracle and want understand the difference and which is the correct way of shutting down the Oracle 11gR2 RAC Database.

      Environment:

      O.S: HP-UX B.11.31 U ia64

      Oracle RDBMS: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.3.0 - 64bit Production

      using ASM Diskgroups

      Question:

      What is the diffrence between
       sql> shutdown immediate 
      vs
       node1>srvctl stop database -d racDB -o immediate 
      Which does Oracle recommend?
