Error when Running bdacheckib on Oracle Big Data Appliance during Installation of "bdacheckibx: entry for switch bda-01sw-ib1 not found in iblinkinfo output" (Doc ID 1935504.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 20, 2014

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance X4-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

The bdacheckib utility looks for lowercase switch names like bda-01sw-ib1 as per the output below.  However in the case here, the switch names were entered into the BDA Configuration Utility in uppercase like BDA-01sw-ib1. The uppercase names show in the BDA Install Review page.

[root@bda-01-bda01 bda]# bdacheckib
bdacheckibx: entry for switch  bda-01sw-ib1 not found in iblinkinfo output
bdacheckibx: entry for switch  bda-01sw-ib2 not found in iblinkinfo output
bdacheckibx: entry for switch  bda-01sw-ib3 not found in iblinkinfo output
bdacheckib:  out of 0 servers of interest accessible

You can verify the uppercase switch names with the iblinkinfo output below:

[root@bda-01-bda01 bda]# iblinkinfo
