Shuts down the database in an orderly fashion. When you choose Unconditional Shutdown, PROMON begins the shutdown when you press RETURN. PROMON does not prompt you to confirm the shutdown.
Emergency Shutdown (Kill All)
Shuts down the database without performing cleanup and kills all processes connected to the database. Before performing the shutdown, PROMON displays the following message prompting you to confirm the shutdown:
This is rather extreme. All the processes connected to
the database will be destroyed. Do you really want to?
Please confirm by entering y for yes:
If you enter anything other than y or yes, PROMON cancels the shutdown and returns to the PROMON utility main menu.
