Last updated on NOVEMBER 29, 2017

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.1.0 to 4.1.0 [Release 4.1]
Linux x86-64

Purpose

This document provides details for re-imaging the Oracle Big Data Appliance Base Image to version 4.1.0. The document describes the steps on how to re-image a single server or an entire Oracle Big Data Appliance or a cluster of BDA servers.

WARNING:  This note is NOT valid for installing BDA Mammoth v4.5.0 and higher. Check: Oracle Big Data Appliance Patch Set Master Note(Doc ID 1485745.1), to confirm which base image is required for your BDA version.  Currently based on the patch set master,for BDA V4.5 and higher follow Oracle Big Data Appliance Base Image Version 4.5.0 for New Installations or Reprovisioning Existing Installations on Oracle Linux 6 (Doc ID 2173434.1).

Scope

This information is intended to be used by field support or a system administrator when re-imaging the Oracle Big Data Appliance X3-2, Oracle Big Data Appliance X4-2, or Oracle Big Data Appliance X5-2 to version 4.1.0. This is for new installs only in which the newest OS image available is not the same as shipped from the factory. It's recommended to re-image to the latest BDA 4.1.0 on a machine that came from factory with a lower release say 2.6.0 or lower, as the 4.1.0 image will install OL6 with UEK v2.

Upgrades will continue to run OL5 and UEK v1. This is because Oracle Linux does not offer an upgrade path from OL5 to OL6.
