ODA X5-2 Failure In Redeployment at Step 16 After Replacing IB with 10GBe Cards and Cabling (Doc ID 2046446.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 28, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Database Appliance X5-2 - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

X5-2 problem unable to complete deployment after swapping out the IB cards for 10GBe cards.
Logfiles showed that the error was consistently seen at Step 16 in the redeployment process.

Changes

The X5-2 by default uses IB / Infiniband connectivity between the two ODA Nodes.
The X5-2 ODA has the flexibility to use either the default IB interconnect or 10GBe but you will need to replace the IB cards with 10GBe cards.
In this case the IB was replaced with 10GBe cards.

For X5-2 12.1.2.2 and 12.1.2.3 requires a redeployment* of the ODA after replacing the IB with 10GBe cards
* 12.1.2.4 eliminates the requirement to redeploy if adding the 10GBe cards.
