Cluster restart

While using the script egoshutdown.sh to shut down the cluster a lot of grid processes (pem and ssm) survive and turn into zombie processes.
Killing these zombies after running the script egoshutdown.sh leads to "Blocked Hosts" after starting the cluster again.

    The requirement can be solved by an external script to check enabled application names, and then re-enable those applications after a cluster restart.

    I think it is necessary to have a script to enable all applications, just like "soamcontrol app disable all". This way, users do not have to enable applications one by one.
