After Reconfiguring OS Disk, bdachecksw Throws 'WARNING: Wrong OS disk sN partition info' (Doc ID 1955181.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 08, 2022

Applies to:

Big Data Appliance X3-2 Hardware - Version All Versions and later
Linux x86-64


On Oracle Big Data Appliance node, replaced a OS disk and configured as per OS disk replacement documentation.

But bdachecksw/bdacheckcluster command reports below warning

WARNING: Wrong OS disk sN partition info : 1 ext4 boot 2 raid 3 linux-swap(v1) 4 ext4 primary
INFO: Expected OS disk sN partition info : 1 ext3 raid 2 ext3 raid 3 linux-swap 4 ext3 primary or 1 ext4 primary boot 2 primary raid 3 linux-swap(v1) primary 4 ext4 primary

Printing the OS disk partition table indicates that the name of the first 3 partitions is set to empty instead of primary as being expected by bdachecksw

 Note:- N in sN can be either 0 or 1 depending on what slot the OS disk is replaced/configured.
