Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version 18.104.22.168.0 to 22.214.171.124.1 [Release 11.1 to 11.2] Linux x86-64
Exadata Storage Servers and database servers running Oracle Linux may encounter a file system corruption that results in the root file system mounted read-only after reboot. This issue may occur only if the following conditions are met:
Exadata hardware is Oracle's Sun servers. HP Oracle Database Machine servers are not affected by this issue.
Installed Exadata version is older than 126.96.36.199.0.
Installed Linux ofa package is older than 1.5.1-4.0.28.
This document explains how to reduce the chance of root file system corruption prior to performing system reboots that occur during Exadata Storage Server and database server software updates.
