Note: In most cases using FlashGrid Cloud Cluster Node Update package is recommended for updating FlashGrid software and OS kernel.
Note: Please review corresponding release notes and check with FlashGrid support before performing any major version update. A major version consists of the first two numbers. The third number represents a revision (hotfix). For example, update from version 19.02.x to 19.05.x is major, but from 19.05.100 to 19.05.200 is a hotfix revision.
Note: Simultaneously updating FlashGrid software and applying Grid Infrastructure patches in rolling fashion is not recommended. FlashGrid services should not be stopped while GI cluster is in rolling patching mode.
To update flashgrid-sf and/or flashgrid-clan RPMs on a running cluster repeat the following steps on each node, one node at a time
Make sure there are no other nodes that are in offline or re-syncing state. All disk groups must have zero offline disks and Resync = No:
If the node is a database node,
a. Stop all local database instances running on the node.
b. Stop Oracle CRS on the node:
# crsctl stop crs
Stop the FlashGrid Storage Fabric services on the node:
# flashgrid-node stop
Stop the FlashGrid Cloud Area Network service on the node:
# systemctl stop flashgrid-clan
flashgrid-clanRPMs on the node using
sudo flashgrid-clan-cfg deploy-config-localafter updating
Reboot the node:
Wait until all disks are back online and resyncing operations complete on all disk groups before updating the next node. All disk groups must have zero offline disks and Resync = No.
To update flashgrid-diags RPM on a node
Update the flashgrid-diags RPM using yum or rpm tool
Restart the flashgrid-node-monitor service (this can be done without stopping any Oracle services):
# systemctl restart flashgrid-node-monitor
