Solve the Oracle Database murder mystery and win a free ticket for yourself and a friend to the NoCOUG conference
Here are the solutions that have received so far. The last one is plausible but doesn’t explain the graceful shutdown of nine databases using SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE. The murder mystery is still unsolved.
- “From digits 10 if 1 falls, remains is 0 (ZERO).”
- “It’s a Cascade delete issue … If Main record is deleted, then any corresponding foreign records too would be deleted.”
- “Oracle does not keep any spot for the “Accidental” fall of bottles. If one bottle can fall accidently, then all ten bottles can also fall accidently. There should not be any scope for accidental falls.”
- “Perhaps Jack connected to a CDB and since he didn’t specify a PDB name, the commands impacted all PDBs contained therein?”
- “Since STARTUP FORCE does an SHUTDOWN ABORT/STARTUP—did he do it on a ASM Instance (NetApp storage) shared by 9 other running instances? There can only be one ASM instance per server. Other instances crashed and were restarted automatically with Oracle Restart (Oracle Grid Infrastructure)?”

It was a beautiful spring day. Popcorn was popping on the apricot tree. What does this have to do with databases? Nothing, but I’m trying to write…
