Exadata: Interfaces Associated with Pkey was Not Starting After Upgrading Rdma Package (Doc ID 2429421.1)

Last updated on MAY 14, 2020

Applies to:

Linux OS - Version Oracle Linux 6.0 with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel [2.6.32] and later
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64
Linux x86

Symptoms

An Exadata Virtual Server  was updated with yum commands from public yum repositories (as part of legato network back up tool installation). After the update, the server fails to start the Pkey associated interfaces:
e.g.: stib<x> interfaces

with the below errors:

Bringing up interface stib0: Configured DEVICE name does not match what new device name would be. This is most likely because once the PKEY_ID was normalized, it no longer resulted in the expected device naming, and so the DEVICE entry in the config file needs to be updated to match. This can also be caused by giving PKEY_ID as a hex number but without using the mandatory 0x prefix. Configured DEVICE=stib0 Configured PHYSDEV=ib0 Configured PKEY_ID=0x2a00 Calculated PKEY_ID=0xaa00 Calculated name=ib0.aa00
