Oracle supports the rolling upgrade of the operating system in a cluster when both versions of the operating system are certified with the version of Oracle Database you are running. Note mixed operating system versions are only supported for the duration of an upgrade (i.e., within 24 hours)--the cluster should never be operated with mixed operating systems for an extended period.
The purpose of this note is to outline the steps one may take to manage Oracle Grid Infrastructure during Operating System Upgrade.
