Virtualized ODA Upgrade 18.8.0.0 to 19.8.0.0 – Journey to 12.1.2.12 – 19.13.0.0 – Part 3

Share on:

Oracle Database Appliance

Hope previous blog posts were useful to address ODA (Oracle Database Appliance) upgrade issues for the virtualization platforms. 

19.13 will be the last upgrade for the virtualized platform, After that oracle going to discontinue OVM and they are moving to KVM-based virtualization. This is going to game changer for ODA for performance.

In this article, I will cover the 19.8.0.0 upgrade steps. I will write another article to cover the issues we encountered during the 18.8.0.0 – 19.8.0.0. This is the major jump for ODA. This is going to be more challenging than other upgrades Mainly because previously we had to tackle mainly grid upgrades. Here we need to upgrade the operating system (OS) from oel6 to oel7. So we need to ensure the OS (Operating System) is stable before moving forward with any other component.

Two major upgrades are:

  1. OS upgrade OEL 6 to OEL 7.
  2. Grid update from 18c to 19c.

Journey to move virtualized ODA to 19.8.0.0. We found this below-mentioned plan from looking at the oracle documents link.

Section 1: Gather ODA Server Information

Find the ODA hardware version.

######### Find ODA version:
[root@ecl-oda-DOM0-0 ~]# ipmitool sunoem cli 'show System' | grep model
        model = ODA X5-2
        component_model = ORACLE SERVER X5-2
[root@ecl-oda-DOM0-0 ~]#

[root@ecl-oda-DOM0-1 ~]# ps -ef | grep pmon
root      5577  4433  0 13:57 pts/2    00:00:00 grep pmon
[root@ecl-oda-DOM0-1 ~]# ipmitool sunoem cli 'show System' | grep model
        model = ODA X5-2
        component_model = ORACLE SERVER X5-2
[root@ecl-oda-DOM0-1 ~]

Find the server version:

[root@ecl-odabase-0 delshare]# oakcli show server

Find hardware version:

[root@ecl-odabase-0 delshare]# oakcli show env_hw
VM-ODA_BASE ODA X5-2
[root@ecl-odabase-0 delshare]#

Check for running VMs and repositories :

If the environment is virtualized you will need to note down the VM names and repository names before patching. These repositories are ACFS mount points, which stores allocated to store the virtual machines and virtual disks.

Section 2: Pre-patching Preparation Steps

2.1 Space Check

First of all, we need to ensure we have enough space on /, /u01, and /opt file systems. At least 20 GB should be available. If not, we can do some cleaning or extend the LVM partitions. 

 Usage of below mentioned mount points :

  •  Unpacking is happening in /opt mount point 
  •  Grid and DB patching and upgrades are happening in /u01 mount. 
  •  OS upgrade is happening in / mount point. 

Note: After unpacking the root “/” mount point we need 8GB free on both nodes. /u01 we need 15GB free on both nodes

 

Space Check

2.2 Unpacking Patches and Upgrading Repository

In virtualized environments, copy the patch bundle to ODA_Base on both nodes. Use the below-mentioned commands to unpack 19.8.0.0 patches to /opt mount point.

oakcli unpack -package /db_backup/19.8.0.0/p31481822_198000_Linux-x86-64_1of3.zip
oakcli unpack -package /db_backup/19.8.0.0/p31481822_198000_Linux-x86-64_2of3.zip
oakcli unpack -package /db_backup/19.8.0.0/p31481822_198000_Linux-x86-64_3of3.zip

2.3 Health Check Report

I would recommend performing a health check on the system before proceeding with patching. For health checks reports can be obtained by “oakcli validate -d “, There are many other options for validating the command. I normally do this when planning for Exadata patching. 

 Execute Validate command, check the health status

Main Pre-patching to validate OS and components

  ################# Pre-Patching steps OS

  oakcli update -patch 19.8.0.0.0 --pre-patchreport --local            - First

Note: Patching only can run after everything looks clean on pre-check reports.

Please find the Sample pre-patching report, This report has failed due to unallocated ASM disks to DATA and RECO.

Note: 1st attempt failed with ASM disk failure.

OS Pre-patching

################ Note 
This will stop the  local node, run the oakcli update -patch with the pre-osupgrade option to stop the Virtual Machines, shared repositories, Oracle Clusterware, and databases:

oakcli update -patch 19.8.0.0.0 --pre-osupgrade --local              - Second 

3rd party rpm list pre-patching will create a directory in “/root/oda-upgrade” this has information about the 3rd party rpm list.

########## Validate 3rd party rpms 

cd /root/oda-upgrade

Note: On the local node, run the oakcli update -patch with the pre-osupgrade option to stop the Virtual Machines, shared repositories, Oracle Clusterware, and databases.

Patching Operating System

 Make sure to stop all the database and other application services before starting the work and back up the ODA_BASE in case you need to restore the backup to 18.8. 

  •  Stop database services and other application services. 
  •  Backup ODA_BASE
  1. Stop the OEM Agent 
  2. Stop Virtual Machine and Repo 
  3. Stop Cluster on Patching Node
####################### stop emagent - both nodes 
/u01/agent13.3/agent_13.3.0.0.0/bin/emctl stop agent 



####################### Stop Servers 
####################### VM stop commands 

oakcli show vm - note down the running vm's
oakcli stop vm  dns_10_7 -node 1 -- example 

oakcli stop vm  dns_10_7


###################### Repo stop commands 
[root@ecl-odabase-0 ~]# oakcli stop repo vmstor1 -node 0
[root@ecl-odabase-0 ~]# oakcli stop repo vmstor1 -node 1

Note: OS patching can be executed using option –local. Make sure to run on one node at a time as this is a risk involved in the upgrade.

Note : OS Path needs to be complete on both nodes , move the server patching.

########### Before OS upgrade 
1. stop vm 
2. stop repo 
3. stop cluster : /u01/app/18.0.0.0/grid/bin/crsctl stop crs -f

Once completes the os-upgrade run the post-upgrade as the last step to validate all the components.

Conclusion

Moving to 18.8.0.0 – 19.8.0.0 is a really critical upgrade Because this upgrade includes the os component. Make sure you are a consistent backup to recover in case of failure. As a best practice create a proactive SR with an Oracle. Also, validate OS precheck before proceeding further on the upgrade. Virtualized ODA is very stable after moving to 19.8.0.0.

Next article I will cover the 19.13.0.0 upgrade.
