What's new in 12.1.2.4.0

  • Update Grid Infrastructure from 12.1.0.2.x, 11.2.0.4.x or 11.2.0.3.x to 12.1.0.2.4.

  • Oracle Database Patch Set Update (PSU) 12.1.0.2.4, 11.2.0.4.7 and 11.2.0.3.15.

  • Support "sudo oakcli" command. Allow the system administrator to give certain users the privileges to run oakcli commands as root user.

  • Add "passwordless" support. If root ssh equivalence was setup, we will not prompt for the password for root, grid and oracle users.
    - If root ssh equivalence was not setup, due to we do not clear the ssh setup for grid or oracle user, we no longer prompt for asking grid or oracle user password.

  • New X5-2 only command "oakcli configure ib2fiber" which deconfigures IB setup and configures fiber cards.
    - This should only be run after replacing IB cards with fiber cards and before deployment on this version and the X5-2 hw_type.

  • New VM migrate command "oakcli migrate vm <vmname>" to migrate the virtual machines or applications between physical machines without disconnecting the client or applications.

  • New flag to support the sparse vdisk. By default we create a non-sparse vdisk.
    - To create a sparse vdisk add an additional flag -sparse
