You conned using SQL Plus to the root container of a multitenant container database (CDB) with SYSDBA
The CDB has several pluggable databases (PDBs) open in the read/write mode.
There are ongoing transactions in both the CDB and PDBs.
What happens alter issuing the SHUTDOWN TRANSACTIONAL statement?
The shutdown proceeds immediately. The shutdown proceeds as soon as all transactions in the PDBs are
either committed or rolled hack.
The shutdown proceeds as soon as all transactions in the CDB are either committed or rolled back.
The shutdown proceeds as soon as all transactions in both the CDB and PDBs are either committed or
The statement results in an error because there are open PDBs.
* SHUTDOWN [ABORT | IMMEDIATE | NORMAL | TRANSACTIONAL [LOCAL]]
Shuts down a currently running Oracle Database instance, optionally closing and dismounting a database. If the
current database is a pluggable database, only the pluggable database is closed. The consolidated instance
continues to run.
Shutdown commands that wait for current calls to complete or users to disconnect such as SHUTDOWN
NORMAL and SHUTDOWN TRANSACTIONAL have a time limit that the SHUTDOWN command will wait. If all
events blocking the shutdown have not occurred within the time limit, the shutdown command cancels with the
ORA-01013: user requested cancel of current operation
* If logged into a CDB, shutdown closes the CDB instance.
To shutdown a CDB or non CDB, you must be connected to the CDB or non CDB instance that you want to
close, and then enter
Oracle instance shut down.
To shutdown a PDB, you must log into the PDB to issue the SHUTDOWN command.
Pluggable Database closed.
* Prerequisites for PDB ShutdownWhen the current container is a pluggable database (PDB), the SHUTDOWN command can only be used if:
The current user has SYSDBA, SYSOPER, SYSBACKUP, or SYSDG system privilege.
The privilege is either commonly granted or locally granted in the PDB.
The current user exercises the privilege using AS SYSDBA, AS SYSOPER, AS SYSBACKUP, or AS SYSDG at
To close a PDB, the PDB must be open.
