Recently, many pits were encountered in the test of a customer's RHEL7 + 11204 RAC environment. Fortunately, they were found and handled in time before the official launch.
Two of the problems are typical, so it is specially recorded that the problems are not caused by the self startup of O-related services after the host restarts. It seems that after RHEL7 installs 11204RAC, it is necessary to pay attention to whether the O-related services can self start after the host restarts, and the root cause of this phenomenon is the change of RHEL7's service management mechanism.
- 1. After the host is restarted, ohad will not start automatically
- 2. After the host restarts, acfsload will not start automatically
1. After the host is restarted, ohad will not start automaticallyBefore, I had a set of test environment that also had this problem. Unfortunately, I didn't think the test environment I used was very deep. Every time I restart the host, I started 'nohup / etc / init. D' manually according to the configuration in '/ etc/inittab'/ init.ohasd run >/dev/null 2>&1
Because Oracle Linux 7 (and Redhat 7) use systemd rather than initd for starting/restarting processes and runs them as a service the current > software install of both 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52 will not succeed because the ohasd process does not start properly.
In OL7 it needs to be set up as a service and patch fix for Bug 18370031 needs to be applied for this , BEFORE you run root.sh when prompted .
Need to apply the patch 18370031 for 184.108.40.206 .
You can also configure the ohad service to start automatically by adding services manually:
# Copyright (c) 2014, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved. # # Oracle OHASD startup [Unit] Description=Oracle High Availability Services After=syslog.target [Service] ExecStart=/etc/init.d/init.ohasd run >/dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null Type=simple Restart=always [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target graphical.target
File permissions are recommended to be 750, then start the service:
systemctl enable oracle-ohasd.service
What I'm using here is to add services directly by hand.
2. After the host restarts, acfsload will not start automaticallyThere is also a problem that the file system of acfs cluster is automatically mounted. Similarly, after the host restarts, the corresponding acfs cannot be automatically mounted, but only the cluster can be restarted. It indicates that the problem is still the os restart. There are related services in acfs that are not started successfully. After troubleshooting, it is found that acfsload is not started automatically. After using 'acfsload start' to start manually, it can be mounted normally. Although it can be handled manually, it still does not meet the requirements of automatic mount. Finally, acfsload can be started automatically after the host is restarted by configuring the service self start mode.
Manually add service and configure service self startup:
# # Oracle ACFS Drivers # [Unit] Description=Load ACFS Drivers during boot After=syslog.target oracle-ohasd.service [Service] ExecStart=<GRID_HOME>/bin/acfsload start -s >/dev/null 2>&1 </dev/null Type=simple [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target graphical.target
Note < grid_ Home > is modified to your own actual environment. For example, here I am / opt/app/11.2.0/grid. The file permission is recommended to be 750. Then start the service:
systemctl enable oracle-acfsload.service
