5 Known Issues

The following are known installation and upgrade issues in Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. They are grouped into the following categories:

5.1 OS Provisioning Job Fails with Invalid IPMI Command

A target system was provisioned with Oracle Linux 6.3 using version 12.1.3.0.0. After upgrading to 12.1.4.0.0, re-provisioning this same target using the same default profile and plan fails with the following invalid command error:

Task: Network Install

Task Run ID: 966

Target: sc11w0625-c.us.oracle.com

Status: FAILED

Result: Netboot failed due to general error IPMI for host 10.133.245.251

exit with errors: Invalid command: /opt/sun/n1gc/pkgs/usr/sbin/ipmitool

The workaround is as follows:

1. Open the /opt/sun/n1gc/os/platform.properties file on the Proxy Controller. The path name for ipmitool appears twice.

cat /opt/sun/n1gc/os/platform.properties | grep ipmitool
platformproperties.ipmitoolpath: /opt/sun/n1gc/pkgs/usr/sbin/ipmitool
/opt/sun/n1gc/pkgs/usr/sbin/ipmitool

2. Remove the duplicate path entry.

3. Restart the proxy using the proxyadm command. This command is in the /opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin directory on Oracle Solaris Proxy Controllers and in the /opt/sun/xvmoc/bin directory on Linux Proxy Controllers. For example:

# ./proxyadm stop -w

# ./proxyadm start -w

4. Re-run the failed OS Provisioning job.

5.2 Issues with Upgrading to Oracle Solaris 11.1

Oracle Solaris 11.1 is supported in Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12.1.2.0.0 or later but is not supported in prior versions of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.

In addition, an issue with Oracle Solaris 11.1 prevents Oracle VM Server for SPARC management on Oracle SPARC T4 servers using the Oracle Solaris 11.1 OS. Upgrading the OS to SRU 1 or later corrects this issue.

5.3 If System/header is not Installed but IDR107 is, Enterprise Controller Installation Fails

Enterprise Controller installation fails on a SuperCluster with Oracle Solaris 11 with the patch idr107 installed.

The workaround is to uninstall idr107, install system/header, and re-install idr107. Alternatively, before running the EC installer, if the idr is installed and if system/header is not already installed, do this:

107.3/idr107.3.run set-repo
pkg install /system/header
pkg unset-publisher idr107
rm -r /var/tmp/2012-03-22/idr-install.39869.18111.d

5.4 Upgrade of Zone Still Required After Agent Controller Upgrade

After upgrading the Enterprise Controller, Proxy Controllers, and Agent Controllers, some non-global zones are not showing as upgraded.

The workaround is to restart the Agent Controller on the non-global zone. Change to the directory containing the agentadm command. On Oracle Solaris systems, this is the /opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin directory. On Linux systems, this is the /opt/sun/xvmoc/bin directory.

./agentadm stop

./agentadm start

Another workaround is to retry the zone upgrade.

5.5 Incorrect Agent Controller Status Displayed on Systems not Upgraded

After managing an asset with an Agent Controller in a prior version, when the Enterprise Controller has been upgraded, the OS asset summary in the user interface says:

Agent Managed:No

The workaround is to upgrade the Agent Controller, which will cause the correct status to be displayed.

5.6 DHCP on Remote Proxy Controller Not Preserved by Upgrade from 11g to 12c

When a Proxy Controller is upgraded from version 11g update 3 to version 12c update 1, the Proxy Controller's DHCP settings are not preserved. A DHCP Configuration job is launched during the Enterprise Controller upgrade, but the configuration changes made by this job are not preserved by the Proxy Controller upgrade.

The workaround is to to re-run the DHCP Configuration job after the remote Proxy Controller is upgraded.
