Oracle binaries after OS upgrade in 11gR2 with Grid (relink)


As RDBMS owner id “oracle”:
$ srvctl stop database -d -o immediate #– run once in any node
$ emctl stop dbconsole #– run on all nodes
As UNIX/Linux “root”:
# /bin/crsctl stop crs #– run on all nodes
# /bin/crsctl disable crs #– run on all nodes
# /etc/init.d/oracleasm stop #– run on all nodes
# /etc/init.d/oracleasm disable #– run on all nodes
(2) Backup filesystem for GI ORACLE_HOME & RDBMS ORACLE_HOME
(3) O/S upgrade
(4) Upgrade ASMlib (if any in Linux, run on all nodes)
# rpm -Uvh oracleasm-support-xxx
# rpm -Uvh oracleasm-2.6.xxx
# rpm -Uvh oracleasmlib-xxx
# /etc/init.d/oracleasm enable
# /etc/init.d/oracleasm lisdisks
(5) Relink RDBMS ORACLE_HOME Binary
Note: complete full steps in onde node, then proceed to next
As RDBMS owner id “oracle”:
$ /bin/relink all
(6) Relink GI ORACLE_HOME Binary
Note: complete full steps in onde node, then proceed to next
As UNIX/Linux “root”:
# cd /crs/install
# ./rootcrs.pl -unlock
As RDBMS owner id “oracle”:
$ cd /bin
$ ./relink all
As UNIX/Linux “root”:
# cd /rdbms/install
# ./rootadd_rdbms.sh
# cd /crs/install
# ./rootcrs.pl -patch
(7) Enable CRS auto-startup and start CRS on all nodes
Note: complete full steps in onde node, then proceed to next
As UNIX/Linux “root”:
# /bin/crsctl start crs
# /bin/crsctl enable crs
(8) Double check if DB, instances and all resrouces are ONLINE.
As RDBMS owner id “oracle”:
$ crsctl stat res -t
Gentle reminder:

Please read the following known bug before you plan for relinking Grid Infra 11.2.0.3.
