This MOS Note provides information on basic Sanity checks of EMOC which can be done in Exalogic Virtual rack to ensure EMOC is in healthy state.
It is a best practice to do Sanity checks on EMOC using steps in this MOS Note on a regular basis and for any changes which happen to the system, for e.g. changes as follows (few listed):
- Upgrading the rack to latest PSU. It is recommended to do Sanity checks on EMOC before and after PSU upgrade.
- One off patches applied on EMOC (recommended by Support). It is recommended to do Sanity checks of EMOC after applying one off patch.
- Configuration changes/Domain Model changes on EMOC which are usually recommended by Support via Service Request. In this scenario recommended doing Sanity checks of EMOC after the configuration/domain model changes.
- Infiniband Switch replacement activity. It is recommended to do Sanity checks of EMOC after Infiniband Switch replacement end to end procedure is completed (which involves deleting the old switch and rediscovering the new switch).
- Compute nodes Motherboard replacement. It is recommended to do Sanity checks of EMOC after Compute nodes Motherboard replacement end to end procedure is completed (which involves deleting and rediscovering Compute nodes from EMOC/OVMM).
- After fixing any Asset credential issues or other issues in EMOC (usually Exalogic Support assists with this.). In this case it is recommended to do Sanity checks of EMOC after fixing credential/ other issues from EMOC.
- OVMM DB corruption issues. In this case it is recommended to do Sanity checks of EMOC after OVMM DB corruption issues have been fixed.
- Control stack had to be restored from Exabr backups. In this case it is recommended to do Sanity checks of EMOC after control stack has been restored.
