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

[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ /u01/ -executeConfigTools -responseFile /sf_OracleSoftware/18cLinux/gridsetup_upgrade.rsp -silent
Launching Oracle Grid Infrastructure Setup Wizard...

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 -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
[root@racnode-dc1-1 install]# ll
total 36000
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle oinstall 35958465 Apr 14 06:05 grid_install_12.
-rw-r--r-- 1 oracle oinstall   901803 Apr 15 01:42
[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
Name           Target  State        Server                   State details
Cluster Resources
      1        ONLINE  ONLINE       racnode-dc1-2            STABLE
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ crsctl stat res -w "TYPE = ora.cvu.type" -p|grep RESULTS | sed 's/,/\n/g'
[oracle@racnode-dc1-1 ~]$ 

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

gridsetup_upgrade.rsp used for upgrade.
