We are encountering problems with Rac One Node database relocation in EM12c version 220.127.116.11 using database plugin 18.104.22.168.4.
When we are doing database patching on two half rack Exadata on which a lot of rac one databases exist (these two clusters are heavily consolidated) they are observing high concurrency on the OMS repository database and massive blocking sessions and because of this not all Rac One targets are relocated successfully to the other node. In order to avoid total crash of EM12c, as a workaround, they are stopping the agents on the involved servers and then continue with the database relocation. After the agents are stopped, all the locks from the database are gone, the high concurrency decreases immediately and the relocation job remains in suspended status. When the agents are started back, EM starts to correct the things but it didn't manage to do it for all forcing them the update manually the configuration at EM level applying different workarounds (blackout the target, relocate manually the target using emcli, update monitoring configuration accordingly depending on the status on which they;ve remained).
