Bare Metal Restore Procedure for Compute Nodes on an Exadata Environment (Doc ID 1084360.1)

Last updated on APRIL 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Exadata Hardware - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This document describes the procedure to restore from bare metal on Sun Oracle Database Machine database server (Sun Fire X4170) and HP Oracle Database Machine database server (HP DL360 G5).


This document describes the procedure to rebuild a computer node that was determined to have been irretrievably damaged and replace it with a new, unconfigured computer node ("Bare Metal") that must be re-imaged to the proper specifications. At the end of the procedure, the Bare Metal compute node will be synchronized with the surviving members of the cluster with respect to Exadata and Oracle stack components.

This document does not include the diagnostics to determine that hardware has failed, the procedures to mechanically replace the failed hardware, the replacement of any customer scripting, cron jobs, maintenance actions, or non-Oracle software that may have been placed on the compute nodes of the cluster. After the Bare Metal Re-store Procedure is complete, the customer is responsible for restoring scripting, cron jobs, maintenance actions, and non-Oracle software.
