Goal

Steps by Step instructions to Configure the Oracle Database Appliance CPU Core Count for Oracle Database Appliance V1, X3-2, X4-2 and X5-2

For X6-2 and higher please refer to Note 2220572.1:
ODA: X6-2 Capacity-On-Demand : How To Change & Register CPU Cores For Single-Node ODA Lite X6-2(S,M,L) or the Dual-Node ODA HA

OVERVIEW 

This document discusses how to configure the Oracle Database Appliance CPU core count. The CPU core count is the number of enabled CPU cores per server

This note provides step by step instructions from the graphic interface via My Oracle Support to change the CPU Core Count for your Oracle Database Appliance ( ODA )

To Trouble Shoot ODA Core Problems

Reference:
Note 1638577.1 for ODA Troubleshooting Core Key Generation and Application Problems
Note 2220572.1 ODA: X6-2 and Higher Capacity-On-Demand :
                       How To Change & Register CPU Cores For Single-Node ODA Lite X6-2(S,M,L) or the Dual-Node ODA HA X6-2


If you are using the X5-2 and unable to create a Core Key higher than 18 per server

Reference:
2252677.1 ODA X5-2 MOS Core Key GUI Not Able To Generate a Core Key Above 18 per server. MOS Pull-down Only Goes up to 18 vs. 36
2254456.1 ODA Oracle Database Appliance Manual Core Key Generation Request Procedure for X5-2, X4-2 X3-2 and V1
 


Requirements:

The Single ODA System Identifier / Serial Number for X3-2, X4-2 and X5-2 (There is one matching serial# on both physical ODA blades)
- ODA V1 uses different serial numbers found on each Node within the same physical box

For X5-2 X4-2 and X3-2 using 12.1.2.x.x and higher you can use the command oakcli show server on BOTH nodes as the serial numbers must match each other.
