Installing a New Node to an OID 10.1.4.2 Cluster Fails With: Configuration failed for IAS oracle.ias.configtool.config.ConfigException: IAS Instance exists already. (Doc ID 743227.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 08, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version: 10.1.4.2 to 10.1.4.2 - Release: 10gR3 to 10gR3
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

A 10.1.4.0.1 OID consisting of two or more nodes was installed.
The cluster was then upgraded to OID 10.1.4.2.

Because 10.1.4.2 is a patchset, not a full release, it is not possible to add a new 10.1.4.2 node to the cluster. But attempting to add an additional 10.1.4.0.1 node to the cluster fails because the Metadata Repository has been upgraded to 10.1.4.2, and thus the 10.1.4.0.1 installer rejects it as being at an
inappropriate version.


Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Install a DB (e.g., 10.2)
  2. Run 10.1.4.0.1 MRCA
  3. Install 10.1.4.0.1 IDM against that MRDB
  4. Upgrade MRDB & IDM tier to 10.1.4.2
  5. Install a new 10.1.4.0.1 IDM against that upgraded MRDB

Note: The two midtiers must reside on different physical machines to see the error

Changes
