OCI: How to Use Boot Volumes for Oracle Linux Instance Recovery (Doc ID 2336058.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 05, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Linux Cloud Service - Version Oracle Linux 6.0 and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A to N/A [Release 1.0]
Linux x86-64


If an Oracle Linux instance in OCI is not booting up correctly and you have checked/identified the issue using serial console as per Doc ID 2335735.1. When you need an action like fsck on root filesystem which is not possible from single user mode, you can use the “Boot Volumes” to be attached to another instance as data volume and do filesystem check or other recovery steps.
The steps are same for both VM and BM shapes.
