OCNE 1.7 Installation Using Provision Command Installing OCNE 1.8 Packages On Control/Worker Nodes (Doc ID 3005729.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 21, 2024

Applies to:

Oracle Cloud Native Environment (OCNE) - Version 1.7 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When doing OCNE 1.7 installation on OL9 using provision command using steps in documentation, incorrect installs OCNE 1.8 packages on Control and Worker Nodes. On the Operator node we see correct OCNE 1.7 packages


Please note this issue is not specific to OCNE 1.7, it can be even noticed with older OCNE versions. In a nutshell if we install any non latest minor intermediate version than the latest available minor version we would run into this issue. In the scenario listed in this MOS Note we are installing OCNE 1.7 on OL9 and we see the issue of 1.8 packages getting installed on Control and worker nodes. OCNE 1.7 version is not the latest OCNE version supported on OL9, the latest OCNE minor version supported on OL9 is OCNE 1.8.

Basically as part of the quick install we do the following:

  1. On operator node, Install the OCNE release package specific to OS version we are running, for e.g. in this case for OCNE 1.7 installation on OL9 it is oracle-olcne-release-el9. Please note that there is later minor version of OCNE which is 1.8 as well which is supported on OL9.
  2. On the Operator node, follow prerequisites steps to disable old repos and enabled OCNE 1.7 repos.
  3. Run provision command.

As part of running above step (3) provision command installs oracle-olcne-release-el9 package on control and worker nodes, and it enables the latest available OCNE version (in this case 1.8) as opposed to OCNE version being installed (in this case 1.7). This causes the issue of OCNE 1.8 latest version packages to get installed on control and worker nodes.

OCNE 1.8 packages getting installed on the control and worker nodes can be confirmed by checked the *olcne* package versions using below command.
