On the BDA Mammoth upgrades must take place from Node 1 of the cluster. This note documents what to do in the case of incorrectly starting the upgrade on another node.

If the Mammoth upgrade is started on a node other than node 1 it will fail at an early phase with something like:

INFO: Starting puppet services (as needed) on all nodes
INFO: Running as root: /usr/bin/ssh -l root <HOSTNAME1> /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/
INFO: Running as root: /usr/bin/ssh -l root <HOSTNAME6> /opt/oracle/BDAMammoth/bdaconfig/tmp/
INFO: Signing certificates from puppet agents. This will take some time ...
