   Put whatever you like into /usr/openv/netbackupo/bin/bpstart_notify -- but 
just be sure that it doesn't produce any output or NBU will probably get 
confused. (The script was orignally there to do just what you want: close down 
Oracle databases before a backup job ran.)
   Make sure that you also use the bpend_notify script to re-open your 
   I generally just have the /etc/init.d/dbstart script execute from 
bpend_notify (and dbshut from bpstart_notify -- don't get confused here) so 
that I don't have to maintain two parallel scripts.
