Symptoms

ODA ILOM Patching can take an unexpected duration of time.

This can happen on most any version for various reasons.


Example:

During patching the ODA it is taking a long time to disable ILOM interconnect part of patching 12.1.2.5.0.
 
The unexpected delay in patching appears to be an issue with during 12.1.2.5.0 patching related to ILOM updates.
Essentially it spends 20-30 extra minutes trying to disable to ILOM interconnect if compared to other patching scenarios on the same or similar ODAs.
This doesn’t happen very frequently but can be seen intermittently.

The patch will eventually complete but take a long time.
