Upgrading Oracle Big Data Appliance From 4.2.0 to 4.5.0 Fails with "ERROR: Script could not be sent to some nodes" (Doc ID 2148194.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 28, 2020

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance Integrated Software - Version 4.5.0 and later
Linux x86-64


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. 


During upgrade to 4.5 from 4.2, on the cluster which was recently expanded, hosts become unreachable and may need to be started via an ILOM powercycle.

This is reflected in upgrade failures during Step 3 and Step 5.  Both steps fail with "ERROR: Script could not be sent to some nodes Cannot continue with install" like below:

ERROR: Sending puppet script to node bdanode04 returned error 3
