How To Replace an Older 73g ODA V1 SSD (REDO diskgroup) with a 200G SSD if Using 12.1.2.1.0 or Earlier Versions if the Disk is not Automatically Added (Doc ID 2185817.1)

Last updated on MAY 21, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database Appliance - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The issues is fixed at ODA 12.1.2.5.0 or later version.

Goal

The ODA V1 system originally only supported 73GB SSD but currently we only ship 200GB SSD for the replacement of the old 73GB SSD.
Does not apply to X3-2 and newer ODA HW types.


After replacing the SSD the expected result would be the following.

For ODA V1 12.1.2.1 or earlier releases new 200GB SSD disks will not be added into the system.
This is because the older ODA versions were released long before the need to ship 200gb replacement disks.
 
Newer ODA V1 versions will automatically detect and add the 200gb SSD and resize it to match the 73gb REDO SSD size.

This Note can be used to workaround this issue.
