ASREXACHK Utility to Exadata


ASREXACHECK is the utility which is used to make sure that Exadata machine is communicating with ASR manager.
Installation
Step 1 Download the file from MOS ID - 1450112.1
Step 2 Copy it to all compute nodes on Exadata and copied it to /opt/oracle.SupportTools
Step 3 Change the permission
#chmod 755 /opt/oracle.SupportTools/asrexachk
Step 4
[root@anarexa oracle.SupportTools]# # ./asrexachk help
You will get below options
In addition to running the asrexachk script with out any options there are some additional options that are available to add or suppress some functionality.
-h[H] Display a usage message on available options.
-f[F] Provides ASR validation only with NO ASR test events
 and NO Proactive Maintenance
-p[P] ASR & Proactive Maintenance but no ASR test events
-z[Z] ASR with test events and Proactive Maintenance
Step 5
[root@anarexa oracle.SupportTools]# ./asrexachk

#########ASR Validation#########
Linux DB Node IP Interface Check
 Validating ASR Manager IP to Interface bondeth0
 #########Warning#########
 It is recommended that the ASR Manager IP should be
 on a management type network that does not carry client access traffic.
 Please see the ASR Security Guide for Ports and Protcol for Required Firewall
 Requirements for SNMP Traps to be sent to the ASR Manager
 Client Access/Bond bondeth*or Customer Private eth2 and or eth3 Networks.
 The ASR Manager network traffic is recommended to exit through the Management interfaces,
 which is interface: Net0/eth0 and the ILOM port NetMGMT.
