Last updated on JUNE 22, 2017

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 2.0.6.2.0 to 2.0.6.2.170117
Linux x86-64
Oracle Virtual Server x86-64

Symptoms

In Exalogic virtual 2.0.6.2.X racks, issue of duplicate instances of same Guest vServer running on multiple Dom0 Compute nodes is seen.

For e.g. if we have vServer with name "test", we see that this "test" vServer is running on multiple Compute Nodes.

From EMOC we see only one instance of vServer running. But when checking the "xm list" command output on Compute nodes and VM's from OVM Manager BUI we see two instances with same vServer UUID running on two different compute nodes .

Following is example for illustrating the problem. Here we see vServer with UUID "04fb0000060000870b99f4114f9df9" running on CN02 and CN08.

This duplicate vserver may not impact the original vserver but running for long may cause vserver corruption.
