First Time Learning Screen

Filed under: Uncategorized — mdinh @ 7:58 pm

So there I was, learning screen for the first time and was not liking the inability to scroll within screen session.

After a lot of googling, I believe to have found the solution as shown in .screenrc

DEMO:

Screen customization:

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ cat .screenrc
# Set scrollback buffer to 100000
defscrollback 100000

# Customize the status line
hardstatus alwayslastline
hardstatus string '%{= kG}[ %{G}%H %{g}][%= %{= kw}%?%-Lw%?%{r}(%{W}%n*%f%t%?(%u)%?%{r})%{w}%?%+Lw%?%?%= %{g}][%{B} %m-%d %{W}%c %{g}]'

# Enable mouse scrolling and scroll bar history scrolling
termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$

Start screen session name testing and log to screenlog.0
I was informed screenlog.0 would overwrite but in my test case, it did not.

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ ls -l
total 0
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ screen -SL testing

In screen session

Simplest Automation: Source RAC GI/DB Environment

Filed under: automation,RAC — mdinh @ 1:18 pm

The conundrum I am facing is whether or not to prepend or append db_name for it’s specific environment.

For example, if db_name is hawk, then hawkprod, hawkqa, hawkdev, etc…

If the hosts have the specific environment, e.g. prodhost, qahost, devhost, then isn’t hawk database on qahost a qa database?

Understandably, every organizations have different requirements and conventions as there’s no one size fits all.

One thing to consider is consistency for easy automation.

So there I was, preparing to patch 8-nodes RAC cluster and thinking how can I make this easier and automated.

First thought was to have a consistent method to source RAC GI/DB.

Once that is done, create shell script to apply the patch.

Patching VM can take hours and too lazy to copy and paste all the commands.

Just run the script and be done with it. I could have scripted patching to loop through all instances vs running them individually per host.

[root@racnode-dc1-1 ~]# /media/patch/jan2019_patch_28833531.sh
[root@racnode-dc1-2 ~]# /media/patch/jan2019_patch_28833531.sh

Have I deployed this in real life? Not to the extreme where everything is scripted because there are too many inconsistencies across environments.

Framework and demo.

Solving DBFS UnMounting Issue

Filed under: DBFS,GoldenGate,RAC — mdinh @ 11:34 pm

Often, I am quite baffle with Oracle’s implementations and documentations.

RAC GoldenGate DBFS implementation has been a nightmare and here is one example DBFS Nightmare

I am about to show you another.

In general, I find any implementation using ACTION_SCRIPT is good in theory, bad in practice, but I digress.

Getting ready to shutdown CRS for system patching to find out CRS failed to shutdown.

Check /var/log/messages to find errors and there’s no clue for resolution.

ACTION_SCRIPT can be found using crsctl as shown if you have not found where log of script agent is at.

oracle@host02 ~ $ $GRID_HOME/bin/crsctl stat res -w "TYPE = local_resource" -p | grep mount-dbfs.sh
ACTION_SCRIPT=/u02/app/12.1.0/grid/crs/script/mount-dbfs.sh
ACTION_SCRIPT=/u02/app/12.1.0/grid/crs/script/mount-dbfs.sh

Here’s a test case to resolve “failed to unmount /ggdata: Device or resource busy”.

First thought was to use fuser and kill the process.

# fuser -vmM /ggdata/
                     USER        PID ACCESS COMMAND
/ggdata:             root     kernel mount /ggdata
                     mdinh     85368 ..c.. bash
                     mdinh     86702 ..c.. vim
# 

Second thought, might not be a good idea and better idea is to let the script handle this if it can.
Let’s see what options are available for mount-dbfs.sh:

oracle@host02 ~ $ /u02/app/12.1.0/grid/crs/script/mount-dbfs.sh -h
Usage: mount-dbfs.sh { start | stop | check | status | restart | clean | abort | version }

oracle@host02 ~ $ /u02/app/12.1.0/grid/crs/script/mount-dbfs.sh version
20160215
oracle@host02 ~ 

Stop DBFS failed as expected.

oracle@host02 ~ $ /u02/app/12.1.0/grid/crs/script/mount-dbfs.sh status
Checking status now
Check -- ONLINE

oracle@host02 ~ $ /u02/app/12.1.0/grid/crs/script/mount-dbfs.sh stop

umounting the filesystem using '/bin/fusermount -u /ggdata'
/bin/fusermount: failed to unmount /ggdata: Device or resource busy
Stop - stopped, but still mounted, error
oracle@host02 ~ $

Stop DBFS using clean option. Notice PID killed is 40047 and not the same as (mdinh 86702 ..c.. vim)
Note: not all output displayed for brevity.

It would have been so much better for mount-dbfs.sh to provide the info as part of the kill versus having user go debug script and trace process.

If you have read this far, then it’s only fair to provide log of script agent.

Final Conclusion for 18c Cluster upgrade state is [NORMAL]

Filed under: 18c,RAC — mdinh @ 3:46 am

Finally, I have reached a point that I can live with for Grid 18c upgrade because the process runs to completion without any error and intervention.

Note that ACFS Volume is created in CRS DiskGroup which may not be ideal for production.

Rapid Home Provisioning Server is configured and is not running.

The outcome is different depending on whether the upgrade is performed via GUI or silent as demonstrated 18c Upgrade Getting to Results – The cluster upgrade state is [NORMAL]

Rene Antunez also demonstrates another method UPGRADE ORACLE GI FROM 12.1 TO 18.5 FAILS AND LEAVES CRS WITH STATUS OF UPGRADE FINAL

While we both encountered the same error “Upgrading RHP Repository failed”, we accomplished the same results via different course of action.

The unexplained and unanswered questions is, “Why RHP Repository is being upgraded?”

Ultimately, it is cluvfy that change for cluster upgrade state and this is shown from gridSetupActions2019-04-21_02-10-47AM.log

I would suggest to run the last step using GUI if feasible versus silent to see what is happening:

/u01/18.3.0.0/grid/gridSetup.sh -executeConfigTools -responseFile /sf_OracleSoftware/18cLinux/gridsetup_upgrade.rsp

So how did I get myself into this predicament? I followed blindly. I trust but did not verify.

18.1.0.0 Grid Infrastructure and Database Upgrade steps for Exadata Database Machine running 11.2.0.4 and later on Oracle Linux (Doc ID 2369422.1)

Step 2.1 - Understand how MGMTDB is handled during upgrade

****************************************************************************************************
Upgrading GI 18.1 does not require upgrading MGMTDB nor does it require installing a MGMTDB if it currently does not exist. 
It's the user's discretion to maintain and upgrade the MGMTDB for their application needs.
****************************************************************************************************

Note: MGMTDB is required when using Rapid Host Provisioning. 
The Cluster Health Monitor functionality will not work without MGMTDB configured.
If you consider to install a MGMTDB later,  it is configured to use 1G of SGA and 500 MB of PGA. 
MGMTDB SGA will not be allocated in hugepages (this is because it's init.ora setting 'use_large_pages' is set to false.

The following parameters from (Doc ID 2369422.1) were the root cause for all the issues in my test cases.

Because MGMTDB is not required, it makes sense to set the following but resulted in chaos.

Starting with Oracle Grid Infrastructure 18.1.0.0.0, when you install Oracle Grid Infrastructure, the Rapid Home Provisioning Server is configured, by default, in the local mode to support the local switch home capability. 

Rapid Home Provisioning Server is configured, by default and there does not look to be documented or easily found option to not install or bypass default.

RHPS is interchangeable between Server and Service.

gridsetup_upgrade.rsp is used for upgrade and pertinent info shown.

## To upgrade clusterware and/or Automatic storage management of earlier     ##

Let me show you how this is convoluted.
In my case, it’s easy because there were only 2 actions performed.
Do you know what GridSetupAction was performed based on the directory name?

oracle@racnode-dc1-1:+ASM1:/u01/app/oraInventory/logs

drwxrwx--- 2 oracle oinstall 4096 Apr 21 18:56 GridSetupActions2019-04-21_02-10-47AM

This is how you can find out.

It might be better to use GUI if available but be careful.

For OUI installations or execution of critical scripts it is recommend to use VNC to avoid problems in case connection with the server is lost.

I was using X and connection was lost during the upgrade. It was a kiss of death with this being the last screen capture.

Rene’s quote:

After looking for information in MOS, there wasn’t much that could lead me on how to solve the issue, just a lot of bugs related to the RHP repository.

I was lucky enough to get on a call with a good friend (@_rickgonzalez ) who is the PM of the RHP and we were able to work through it. So below is what I was able to do to solve the issue.

Also it was confirmed by them , that this is a bug in the upgrade process of 18.X, so hopefully they will be fixing it soon.

I concur and conclude, the process for GI 18c Upgrade is overly complicated, convoluted, contradicting, and not clearly documented, all having to do with MGMTDB and Rapid Home Provisioning (RHP) repository.

Unless you’re lucky or know someone, good luck with your upgrade.

Lastly, it would be greatly appreciated if you would share your upgrade experiences and/or results.

Did you use GUI or silent?

UPDATE 1:

FAQ: 12c Grid Infrastructure Management Repository (GIMR) (Doc ID 1568402.1)
====================================================================================================
What’s the implications of not configuring Management Database during installation/upgrade?

In 12.1.0.1, GIMR is optional, if Management Database is not selected to be configured during installation/upgrade, all features (Cluster Health Monitor (CHM/OS) etc) that depend on it will be disabled.

This changed in 12.1.0.2, it’s mandatory to have GIMR and it’s not supported to be turned off with the exception of Exadata.
====================================================================================================

This may explains why having the following parameter for RAC (Non-Exadata) would fail.

-J-Doracle.install.mgmtDB=false -J-Doracle.install.mgmtDB.CDB=false -J Doracle.install.crs.enableRemoteGIMR=false

Due to Exit Status is -1 is probably why – The cluster upgrade state is [UPGRADE FINAL]

Why Upgrading RHP Repository when oracle_install_crs_ConfigureRHPS=false?

In conclusion, the silent upgrade process is poorly documented at best.

Starting to wondering if the following parameters contributed to the issue:

-J-Doracle.install.mgmtDB=false -J-Doracle.install.mgmtDB.CDB=false -J Doracle.install.crs.enableRemoteGIMR=false

18c Upgrade Getting to Results – The cluster upgrade state is [NORMAL]

Filed under: 18c,RAC — mdinh @ 12:54 am

There are/were a lot of discussions about Check 18c Upgrade Results – The cluster upgrade state is [UPGRADE FINAL]
on how cluvfy stage -post crsinst -allnodes -collect cluster -gi_upgrade could have changed the cluster upgrade state to [NORMAL].

Running gridSetup.sh -executeConfigTools in silent mode, the next step cluvfy is not run.

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ /u01/18.3.0.0/grid/gridSetup.sh -executeConfigTools -responseFile /sf_OracleSoftware/18cLinux/gridsetup_upgrade.rsp -silent

You can find the logs of this session at:

[WARNING] [INS-43080] Some of the configuration assistants failed, were cancelled or skipped.
   ACTION: Refer to the logs or contact Oracle Support Services.
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$

Running gridSetup.sh -executeConfigTools in GUI, there is an option to ignore Failed Upgrading RHP Repository and continue to the next step to run cluvfy.

I don’t think cluvfy modify the state of the cluster but rather ora.cvu did due to the existing of the following files.

[root@racnode-dc1-1 install]# pwd
/u01/app/oracle/crsdata/@global/cvu/baseline/install
[root@racnode-dc1-1 install]# ll

[root@racnode-dc1-1 install]# 

When checking RESULTS from ora.cvu, there are no errors.

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl stat res -w "TYPE = ora.cvu.type" -t

Hell! What do I know as I am just a RAC novice and happy the cluster state is what it should be.

Create Linux Swap File

Filed under: shell scripting,Vagrant,VirtualBox — mdinh @ 1:26 pm

Currently I am using oravirt (Mikael Sandström) · GitHub (https://github.com/oravirt) vagrant boxes.

The swap is too small, wanted to increase for 18c upgrade test, tired of doing this manually, and here’s a script for that.

#!/bin/sh -x
swapon --show
free -h
rm -fv /swapfile1
dd if=/dev/zero of=/swapfile1 bs=1G count=16
ls -lh /swapfile?
chmod 0600 /swapfile1
mkswap /swapfile1
swapon /swapfile1
swapon --show
free -h
echo "/root/swapfile1         swap                    swap    defaults        0 0" >> /etc/fstab
cat /etc/fstab
exit

Check 18c Upgrade Results – The cluster upgrade state is [UPGRADE FINAL]

Filed under: 18c,RAC — mdinh @ 11:13 pm

After upgrade and apply RU for Grid 18c, the cluster upgrade state was not NORMAL.

The cluster upgrade state is [UPGRADE FINAL] which I have never seen before.

Searching Oracle Support was useless as I was only able to find the following states:

The cluster upgrade state is [NORMAL]
The cluster upgrade state is [FORCED]
The cluster upgrade state is [ROLLING PATCH]

The following checks were performed after upgrade:

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl query crs releaseversion
Oracle High Availability Services release version on the local node is [18.0.0.0.0]

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl query crs softwareversion
Oracle Clusterware version on node [racnode-dc1-1] is [18.0.0.0.0]

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl query crs softwarepatch
Oracle Clusterware patch level on node racnode-dc1-1 is [2532936542].

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl query crs releasepatch

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl query crs activeversion
Oracle Clusterware active version on the cluster is [18.0.0.0.0]
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$

Check OCR: Grid Infrastructure Upgrade : The cluster upgrade state is [FORCED] (Doc ID 2482606.1)
I was desperate and OCR was fine.

[root@racnode-dc1-1 ~]# olsnodes -c
vbox-rac-dc1

[root@racnode-dc1-1 ~]# olsnodes -t -a -s -n
racnode-dc1-1   1       Active  Hub     Unpinned
racnode-dc1-2   2       Active  Hub     Unpinned

[root@racnode-dc1-1 ~]# $GRID_HOME/bin/ocrdump /tmp/ocrdump.txt

[root@racnode-dc1-1 ~]# grep SYSTEM.version.hostnames /tmp/ocrdump.txt
[SYSTEM.version.hostnames]
