Peter, the code does the right thing as it requires the instance's control file state to be either DB_SHUTDOWNED_IN_RECOVERY or DB_SHUTDOWNED. The documentation, on the contrary, implies that the instance just needs to be offline, which can be anything as long as the postmaster is stopped. That's how I understand the current wording. -- Michael
