ODA X6-2S upgrade Databases to 12.2

ODA X6-2S upgrade Databases to 12.2

In the Blog Post ODA X6-2 upgrade to 12.2 I described the way for upgrading an ODA to 12.2. In this post I will describe the two ways with ODA tools for upgrading a database to 12.2 and I will show on what you have to take care about.

Prerequisites for upgrading databases

Before you can upgrade a database you need to install a new 12.2 Database Home.

If you did not have downloaded the RDBMS Clone file for 12.2 then you have to download the patch 27119402

As soon you have downloaded this you have to copy this patch to the ODA (e.g. to /u01)

After this you can extract the file:

[root@edosrvoda03 ~]# cd /u01/
[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# unzip p27119402_122120_Linux-x86-64.zip 
Archive: p27119402_122120_Linux-x86-64.zip
 extracting: oda-sm-12.2.1.2.0-171124-DB-12.2.0.1.zip 
 inflating: README.txt 
[root@edosrvoda03 u01]#

Repository update

Now you are able to update the ODA repository with the new Oracle Home clone file.

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli update-repository -f /u01/oda-sm-12.2.1.2.0-171124-DB-12.2.0.1.zip 
{
 "jobId" : "056f54d4-e198-4e46-a0cd-1f1f4eac39bd",
 "status" : "Created",
 "message" : "/u01/oda-sm-12.2.1.2.0-171124-DB-12.2.0.1.zip",
 "reports" : [ ],
 "createTimestamp" : "February 27, 2018 16:25:42 PM CET",
 "resourceList" : [ ],
 "description" : "Repository Update",
 "updatedTime" : "February 27, 2018 16:25:42 PM CET"
}

Wait until the describe-job command show success

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli describe-job -i 056f54d4-e198-4e46-a0cd-1f1f4eac39bd

Now you are able to create a 12.2 Oracle Home.

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli create-dbhome --version 12.2.0.1

Upgrade all Database attached to one Oracle Home with one command

To upgrade all databases from one Oracle Home (11.2 or 12.1) to 12.2 you need the DB Home ID for the this Oracle Home and you need the DB  Home ID of the new Oracle Home.

I will update all databases attached to the ORACLE_HOME with the ID cce28d1b-01cc-4917-8237-38683d34f53e to the ORACLE_HOME with the ID 929c8444-86f5-4032-9dd2-b5b95a2b6009 OraDB12201.

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli list-dbhomes

ID Name DB Version Home Location Status 
---------------------------------------- -------------------- ---------------------------------------- --------------------------------------------- ----------
cce28d1b-01cc-4917-8237-38683d34f53e OraDB12102_home1 12.1.0.2.171017 (26914423, 26717470) /u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0.2/dbhome_1 Configured

929c8444-86f5-4032-9dd2-b5b95a2b6009 OraDB12201_home1 12.2.0.1.171017 (27020386, 26710464) /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0.1/dbhome_1 Configured
82aeada2-9ebb-4fd7-a7e2-f3a8d343663b OraDB12201_home4 12.2.0.1.171017 (27020386, 26710464) /u01/app/oracle/product/12.2.0.1/dbhome_4 Configured
There is a Bug in ODA Software 12.2.1.2.0. For every database 15GB free space in /u01 is required. If this is not the case, the command will fail. If you have 4 Databases attached to one Oracle Home you need at least 60GB of free space in /u01 else you will get an error.

If you have enough free space in /u01 you can upgrade all databases attached to one Oracle Home with the following command:

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli upgrade-database -h
Usage: upgrade-database [options]
 Options:
 --databaseids, -i
 Database IDs to be upgraded
 Default: []
 * --destDbHomeId, -to
 DB HOME ID of the destination
 --help, -h
 get help
 --json, -j
 json output
 --sourceDbHomeId, -from

In this example it would be the command:

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli upgrade-database

[root@edosrvoda03 swingbench]# odacli describe-job -i 5b99bf52-245d-402c-abaf-be188e35845b

Upgrade Database 1 to n databases at a time

If you are interested in upgrading databases independent of the ORACLE_HOME you have the possibility to use the same command (upgrade-database) with different parameters:

[root@edosrvoda03 swingbench]# odacli upgrade-database -h
Usage: upgrade-database [options]
 Options:
 --databaseids, -i
 Database IDs to be upgraded
 Default: []
 * --destDbHomeId, -to
 DB HOME ID of the destination
 --help, -h
 get help
 --json, -j
 json output
 --sourceDbHomeId, -from
 DB HOME ID of the source


You define the databases by its ID and define the ORACLE_HOME to which the databases should belong to after the upgrade. Please take care that the database are in running state before you start the command.
Please be aware that you have the same problem with the 15GB per database as if you upgrade all database attached to an ORACLE_HOME.

[root@edosrvoda03 u01]# odacli list-databases

 "updatedTime" : "March 02, 2018 15:23:51 PM CET"
}

 

After odacli describe-job shows success all databases in the parameter databaseids are upgraded to the new version.
