How to Add Big Data SQL Resource to CRS When Install User and Grid User are Different (Doc ID 2443842.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Big Data SQL - Version 3.2.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The Big Data SQL(BDS) 3.2+ installer is unable to add a BDS MTA extproc resource to Cluster Ready Services (CRS) for Oracle Clusterware (Grid) when database and Grid are running with different users.

If Grid is available, by default the BDS extproc process is added into CRS. This behavior can be changed with the --crs parameter to the script. In the case that Grid is not available or --crs=false was used in the bds-database-install script, the BDS MTA extproc needs to be manually managed. This means that in case of a crash, it needs to be manually started.

BDS MTA extproc is not able to run properly if is registered in CRS on BDS pre-3.2.0 versions when database and Grid run with different users. Starting from 3.2.0, the BDS installer prevents CRS registration in this case.

The goal of this note is to provide a workaround for the above scenario in BDS 3.2.

In the BDS 3.2 failure case the install message looks like this :
$ ./ --install --reqkey=db.reqkey --aux-run-mode=su
