The update rdk subcommand of the raccli utility updates the cloud tooling on an Oracle Database Classic Cloud Service database deployment that uses Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC).


If you are updating a database deployment that also uses Oracle Data Guard and are updating from release 17.2.1 or earlier, you must also execute the update databasepassword command to store the password in the keystore (wallet).

raccli update rdk -tag tag-number


After executing the raccli update rdk command, wait three minutes before executing commands using either raccli or the user interface to allow time for the server to restart.

This subcommand runs asynchronously. That is, it creates a job to update the cloud tooling, reports the job ID of the created job, and then exits. To track the progress of the job to its completion, use the raccli describe job command.

If the subcommand fails, it reports a FAILURE status and provides a message describing the reason for the failure.

Options of this subcommand are as follows.

Option Description

-tag tag-number

The tag of the cloud tooling to update to. For tag-number enter the version of tooling you want to update to without the dots in the version number. For example, to update to 17.2.3 tooling you would enter 1723.

To find out the tag number for the latest available tooling update, see What's New for Oracle Database Classic Cloud Service.


Here is an example of the update rdk subcommand. You can use the raccli describe job subcommand to view details about the job that is started when you execute this subcommand.

[opc@example1 ~]$ raccli update rdk -tag 1723

  "jobId" : "10",
  "requestStatus" : "SUCCESS"
