You can configure your system so that the database, global listener and X servers (database communication servers necessary for remote communication) are started automatically when the database computer is started and are stopped automatically when it is shut down.

    1. Activate the automatic database start when you create the database.

      More information:

      The system sets the Startup Type for the database kernel service, the global listener and the X servers to Automatic.

      More information: Glossary, Service

    2. To activate or deactivate the automatic database start later, use Database Manager CLI.
