The following six tables show the sizes for +DATA, +RECO, and +REDO disk groups on various configurations of Oracle Database Appliance. Each table has values for either normal or for high redundancy levels and, when applicable, the tables are duplicated for configurations with and without a storage expansion shelf. The tables contain some approximate values, which have three decimal place accuracy (for example, 5.457), derived by converting disk hardware terabytes (based on 1 kilobyte=1,000 bytes) into data storage terabytes (based on 1 kilobyte=1,024 bytes). Use this list to find the disk group size table that matches your configuration:

Oracle Appliance Manager GridInst.pl Tool Commands

This section describes the Oracle Appliance Manager command line tool GridInst.pl.

Purpose

Oracle Appliance Manager provides system validation and patching for Oracle Database Appliance hardware, operating system software, Oracle Grid Infrastructure software, and Oracle Database software.

If Oracle Appliance Manager fails at a particular step, then complete the install by running GridInst.pl with the -r option and providing the steps that Oracle Appliance Manager reported as failed.

For example, if Oracle Appliance Manager reports a failure at step 12, then run the following command:

GridInst.pl -r 12-24

Syntax

GridInst.pl [-d] [-h] [-n] [-l] [-s number] [-r number-number] [-v] [-o]

Options

Table A-14 GridInst.pl Command Options

-n

Ignore errors. The command ignores any errors.

-l

List all the configuration steps that the GridInst.pl command can run.

-s number

-r number_a-number_b

Run the command from the first step specified to the last step specified, completing each step in sequence without a pause unless there is an error. For example: GridInst.pl -r 5-10 runs steps 5 through 10 in sequence.

-v

Display the GridInst.pl command version number.

-o

Required when running the GridInst.pl command on virtualized platform systems.


Note:

The -o option is only required when running GridInst.pl command on virtualized platform systems and should not be used otherwise.
