Prior to BDA V2.5 OL5 Upgrade from BDA V2.4 the OFED_VERSION Reported by "imageinfo" on Many Servers is Incorrect (Doc ID 1915341.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 13, 2019

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 2.4.0 and later


NOTE: In the examples that follow, user details, cluster names, hostnames, directory paths, filenames, etc. represent a fictitious sample (and are used to provide an illustrative example only). Any similarity to actual persons, or entities, living or dead, is purely coincidental and not intended in any manner.


1. Prior to BDA V2.5 OL5 upgrade from BDA V2.4 running the "dcli -C imageinfo" for BDA V2.4 image verifcation indicates that all but two of the servers in a cluster have an out-dated OFED_VERSION.  All other information is correctly reported.

The OFED_VERSION for BDA V2.4 OL5 is: OFED-IOV-1.5.5-2.0.0088.
The OFED_VERSION for BDA 2.3.1 OL5 is: OFED-IOV-1.5.5-1.0.0120.

Running 'dcli -C imageinfo' shows like:

bdanode01: OFED_VERSION : OFED-IOV-1.5.5-2.0.0088  
bdanode02: OFED_VERSION : OFED-IOV-1.5.5-1.0.0120
bdanode03: OFED_VERSION : OFED-IOV-1.5.5-1.0.0120
bdanode0n-x: OFED_VERSION : OFED-IOV-1.5.5-2.0.0088  
bdanode0n: OFED_VERSION : OFED-IOV-1.5.5-1.0.0120

2. The output collected below to determine if the problem is due to imageinfo not having been updated correctly or if the actual OFED version and kernel versions is incorrect shows that on all but two of the nodes the OFED_VERSION is incorrect for BDA 2.4 but the kernel version is correct for all nodes.

a)  Collecting the OFED_VERSION for each server shows only two nodes have the correct OFED_VERSION:
