(Doc ID 2700151.1)
Last updated on AUGUST 18, 2020
Applies to:Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software - Version 220.127.116.11.0 and later
Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 [Release 11.2]
This document describes transitional support for Grid Infrastructure 126.96.36.199 on Exadata systems running Oracle Linux 7, such as Exadata System Software 20.x and 19.x.
Previously a system running Grid Infrastructure 188.8.131.52 required Exadata running Oracle Linux 6 (Exadata versions 12.x or 18.x). Grid Infrastructure upgrade from 184.108.40.206 to Long Term Support Release 19 required a three-step upgrade path:
- Upgrade Grid Infrastructure from 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168, or 22.214.171.124, or 18.
- Upgrade Exadata System Software to a release running Oracle Linux 7 (e.g. 20.x or 19.x).
- Upgrade Grid Infrastructure to 19.
Transitional support of Grid Infrastructure 126.96.36.199 on Exadata systems running Oracle Linux 7 is added to enable Grid Infrastructure upgrade from 188.8.131.52 directly to Long Term Support Release 19, thus eliminating the requirement to first upgrade Grid Infrastructure to an intermediate release.
