ODA*CLI Commands DCS Stack Quick Link (New as of ODA X6-2S X6-2M and X6-2L) (Doc ID 2275480.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 16, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Database Appliance X6-2 HA Hardware - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The documentation should always be consulted for the single-source of truth including existing and future ODA*CLI command syntax and options.

The initial usage of the DCS stack ODACLI and ODAADMCLI commands started with ODA X6-2 HA and ODA X6-2S ODA X6-2M X6-2L.
ODA*CLI commands are used exclusively for all hardware types on ODA release 18.3 and higher.¹
Until 18.3 older hardware types including X3-2 to X5-2 continued to use oakcli for ODA administration.
It is important to reference each version command line options as the DCS Stack ODA*CLI commands are expanded with each new ODA version.

This note will provide links to ODA documentation in order to identify the relevant commands available and introduced for that specific version.

ODA legacy appliance kit command line interface (OAKCLI) is still used for the Virtualized Platform (aka ODAVP).
