Lifecycle Management Operations

To check the status of a Cloud Exadata infrastructure resource
To change the infrastructure display name
To check the status of a cloud VM cluster
To check the status of an Exadata DB system
To start, stop, or reboot an Exadata Cloud Infrastructure cloud VM cluster or DB system

Network Management Operations

To edit the network security groups (NSGs) for your client or backup network

Your client and backup networks can each use up to five network security groups (NSGs). Note that if you choose a subnet with a security list, the security rules for the cloud VM cluster or DB system will be a union of the rules in the security list and the NSGs. For more information, see Network Security Groups and Network Setup for Exadata Cloud Infrastructure Instances.

  1. Open the navigation menu. Click Oracle Database, then click Exadata at Oracle Cloud.
  2. Choose your Compartment.
  3. Navigate to the cloud VM cluster or DB system you want to manage:

    Cloud VM clusters (new resource model): Under Exadata at Oracle Cloud, click Exadata VM Clusters. In the list of VM clusters, find the VM cluster you want to access and click its highlighted name to view the details page for the cluster.

    DB systems: Under Bare Metal, VM, and Exadata, click DB Systems. In the list of DB systems, find the Exadata DB system you want to access, and then click its name to display details about it.

  4. In the Network details, click the Edit link to the right of the Client Network Security Groups or Backup Network Security Groups field.
  5. In the Edit Network Security Groups dialog, click + Another Network Security Group to add an NSG to the network.

    To change an assigned NSG, click the drop-down menu displaying the NSG name, then select a different NSG.

    To remove an NSG from the network, click the X;icon to the right of the displayed NSG name.

  6. Click Save.
