Updating the Cloud Tooling by Using the raccli Utility

Not Oracle Cloud InfrastructureNot Oracle Cloud at Customer This topic does not apply to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure or to Oracle Cloud at Customer.

You use the raccli utility to update the cloud tooling on database deployments hosting an Oracle RAC database.


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

  1. Connect as the opc user to the compute node.
  2. Execute the raccli update rdk subcommand:


    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.

    $ raccli update rdk -tag tag-number

    where tag-number is the version of tooling you want to update to, without the dots in the version number. For example, to update to 17.2.5 tooling you would enter 1725.

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