Use this procedure to update the MCMU software on a fully installed MiniCluster. This procedure only updates the MCMU software. To update other software components, see Update Other MiniCluster Software Components (CLI).and Update MiniCluster Software (BUI).
The system can be updated while DB and App VMs are running.
Caution - The MCMU component must be updated before you update any other component. (see Update the MCMU Component (CLI)).
Caution - For systems running MCMU v1.1.21 and earlier, you must update the MCMU software through the MCMU CLI as described in this procedure. Do not attempt to update MCMU through the BUI because the update might fail. If you experience this problem, follow the instructions in the MiniCluster Release Notes (Doc ID 2214746.1) available at http://support.oracle.com, under the heading Upgrading Fully Configured MiniCluster to 22.214.171.124.
To review an overview of the update process, see Component Update Process Overview.
These procedures must be performed prior to updating the MCMU software:
Note – You can install the Component Bundle before performing this procedure, or at the end of this procedure. For instructions, see Install the Component Bundle.
% mcmu -V Oracle MiniCluster Configuration Utility MCMU v1.1.18
Note that the patch_omctoolkit option cannot be combined with any other mcmu patch options.
mcmu patch -p update_omctoolkit [path_to_omctoolkit.p5p]
By default, this command expects to find the omctoolkit.p5p file in the /var/opt/oracle.minicluster/sfw directory.
If you ran the mcmu patch -p upload command (a command listed in View Software Component Versions (CLI)), perform this command:
% mcmu patch -p update_omctoolkit
If you did not run the mcmu patch -p upload command, you must specify the path to the omctoolkit.p5p file.
First, identify the patch-version_no directory name where the Patch Bundle was untarred.
In this example, patch-126.96.36.199 is the directory name needed. Your directory name might be different.
% cd /var/opt/oracle.minicluster/patch % ls README.txt mc-188.8.131.52-patch.tar.ac omc beadm.py mc-184.108.40.206-patch.tar.ad patch-220.127.116.11 mc-18.104.22.168-patch.tar.aa mc-22.214.171.124-patch.tar.ae patch.json mc-126.96.36.199-patch.tar.ab mc_patch.py scripts
In this command line, replace patch-version_no with the directory name you identified.
% mcmu patch -p update_omctoolkit /var/opt/oracle.minicluster/patch/patch-version_no/mcmu/omctoolkit.p5p
% mcmu -V Oracle MiniCluster Configuration Utility MCMU v188.8.131.52
Only perform this step if you are updating a system that started at version 1.1.21 or lower.
% su - root # svcadm clear apache22 # exit %
Only perform this step if you are updating a system that started at version 1.1.18 or lower.
Log into the MCMU BUI as the supervisor. MCMU requires you to set the password for the supervisor. Until the supervisor password is set, you cannot login to the MCMU as an admin such as mcinstall. See Log in to the MCMU BUI.
The Component Bundle contains important components that need to be updated when the MCMU component is updated.
If you already installed the Component Bundle, skip this step.
If not, perform this procedure now. See Install the Component Bundle.
