psm bdcsce precheck-patch

Perform a precheck on an Oracle Big Data Cloud cluster to identify potential issues that might prevent a specified patch from being applied successfully.


In the following syntax, line breaks have been added for clarity. Do not include them when entering the command.

psm bdcsce precheck-patch -s|--service-name cluster-name
	-p|--patch-id patch-id
	[-of|--output-format short|json|html]
	[-wc|--wait-until-complete true|false]


The patching precheck reports on the following conditions:

  • Disk space shortage

  • Database connectivity failure

  • Server access failure

  • Storage access failure

Prechecking does not check whether another administration task (backup, restoration, or scaling) is in progress, which would prevent patching.


Parameter Description

-s|--service-name cluster-name

Specifies the name of the Oracle Big Data Cloud cluster.

-p|--patch—id patch-id

Specifies the patch ID of the patch to precheck. To retrieve a list of patch IDs available to apply to a cluster, see psm bdcsce available-patches.

-of|--output-format short|json|html

(Optional) Specifies the output format of the command’s response:

  • short— output is formatted as a brief summary.

  • json— output is formatted as a JSON array.

  • html— output is formatted as HTML

The default output format is the one you specified when using the psm setup command to configure the psm CLI.

–wc|--wait-until-complete true|false

(Optional) If set to true, the command behaves synchronously. That is, it does not return until the submitted job is complete. The following message is displayed until the job is complete:

Waiting for the job to complete... (it cannot be cancelled)

The default value is false.


The following example shows a precheck of patch–EE on the bdcsce-cluster cluster.

$ psm bdcsce precheck-patch --service-name bdcsce-cluster --patch-id–EE
