NOTE: BDA latest version 2019R2 supports Oracle 19c on Linux (both standalone and grid) and Windows (Standalone) platforms. To apply patch wrapper against Oracle version 19c Grid Setup, you need to apply a HOTFIX to BDA version 2019R2. Kindly get in touch with support team to get this HOTFIX.

 

To know more about this HOTFIX, kindly visit this page:     Oracle 19c Grid October 2019 Patch Related Hotfix Available for BDA 2019R2

While testing October 2019 quarterly patch wrapper for Oracle 19c Grid setup on Linux environment, it was observed that one of the cluster related command "crsctl" output is slightly different than that for earlier versions of Oracle databases. Due to this change, one of the BDA's activity during grid patching "AutoStart Services" was failing. To address this command output change, we had to modify the BDA code. This modified BDA code is available through the HOTFIX.

 

So, if you are trying to patch your Oracle 19c Grid Setup with October 2019 GIPSU patch, make sure you apply the HOTFIX in advance i.e. before you start patching.

 

Kindly get in touch with our support team to get this HOTFIX.

NOTE: If you have grid environment in your infrastructure, where you use BDA provided patch wrappers to patch these grid homes and grid databases, then make sure you read below blog and take necessary steps before patching begins.

          BDA Oracle Patch Wrappers: Confirmation From Oracle on Ownership Change for "sqlplus" file under GRID_HOME

 

 

To know more about BDA Patch Wrappers visit this page: BDA Patch Wrappers for Oracle

Share This:

We had earlier reported an issue while patching Oracle GRID environment using BDA product with the help of patch wrappers. The issue is described here. We were continuously following up with Oracle for almost 3 months, to confirm this ownership change. Today we got the confirmation from Oracle on the same. Oracle says, the ownership of the file "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" is changed from "<grid_user>/oinstall" to "root:oinstall" after applying the GIRU/GIPSU patches from April 2019 onward. This is an expected behavior. However Oracle does not have any documentation as of today which talks about this change. Oracle support person has confirmed this on the request I raised with them. Reference of this request is:

          SR 3-20452464551 : After applying GIRU April2019, the permission of "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" changed to root:oinstall.

 

How it affects BDA's logic of applying patches using its patch wrappers:

     BDA uses "GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" file to determine the ownership of Oracle Software. As the ownership is changed from Oracle side, we have to change the logic within BDA to determine the ownership of Oracle Software. So going forward BDA will use "$GRID_HOME/bin/oracle" file instead of "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" file to determine the ownership of Oracle Software. This file exists in all oracle home types (db, crs, grid) and will always be owned by the id that owns the database.

 

When this change will be available in product:

     This change will be available in the upcoming release i.e. 2019 R3

 

What about Oracle patches that are released by Oracle till the availability of above BDA version:

     The patch wrappers which BMC will release for further quarters till the release of BDA 2019 R3 version will be modified so that post patching of such patches the ownership of "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" will be changed to "<grid_user>:oinstall". So going forward, customers will not face any issue during patching due to ownership issues. We have already confirmed with Oracle that, this change of ownership post applying the respective patch is acceptable and it does no harm to the installed Oracle Software.

  

     However we think of below two situations in your environments. You have to take step(s) according to the situation applicable to your environment:

          Situation 1: If prior to patching, the file "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" is owned by "root:oinstall" then change the ownership of "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" from "root:oinstall" to "<grid_user>:oinstall". Then carry out a “node rescan” through BDA. Then go for patching. Ownership of the file can be changed manually or using custom action in case there is no access to the server.

          Situation 2: If prior to patching, the file "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" is owned correctly by "<grid_user>:oinstall", then no need to do anything.

 

Hope this information helps. Kindly leave your comments below if you are looking for any further information around patching or have any doubt on the above provided information.

 

NOTE: This information is applicable to only grid patches that is GIPSU and GIRU. For other patches like PSU, OJVM, RU, PSU-OJVM, RU-OJVM, everything remains the same. There is no change in the patching logic for these patches.

Important Note: There is an open issue with Oracle regarding GIRU/GIPSU patches. It is described in detail here. So kindly think about applying the workaround mentioned there before applying these patches.

Situation:

Based on our experience with April 2019 Oracle patches we have learnt that, ownership of some of the files have been changed after applying April 2019 patch. Especially GIPSU/GIRU patch. Due to which some of the patches failed while applying through BDA. The root cause of this failure in BDA is changed ownership of file "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus". Before applying the patch the file was owned by "grid/oracle" user and post applying it is owned by "root" user. This will result in the July 2019 patches failing when applied in a RAC environment.

 

Possible Scenarios:

1. April 2019 Patch Did Not Fail: There is a possibility that, April 2019 GIPSU/GIRU patch went well when applied through BDA. This happened because the ownership of above mentioned file was correct before applying the patch. But after the patch got applied, the above mentioned file is now owned by root user instead of "grid/oracle" user. As a result there is a possibility that July 2019 GIPSU/GIRU patch will fail on the same RAC environment.

 

2. April 2019 Patch Did Fail: If the mentioned file is owned by root user before applying the patch, April patch must have failed. This will also result in July patch to be failed.

 

What we are doing about it:

  • We have already opened a ticket with Oracle (SR 3-20452464551 )
  • Oracle has confirmed this issue on 12.1.0.2 as “Bug 29415452 : 12102 APR19 GIPSU: FILE PERMISSION GETS CHANGED FOR MANY FILES UNDER GRID HOME”
  • Oracle is still in the process of confirming this in later releases of the product.

 

Looking Forward:

  • We hope to have Oracle address this in their upcoming July releases
  • If Oracle does not do this, we do have a workaround available from Support.   The workaround would be to change the ownership of "$GRID_HOME/bin/sqlplus" from "root:oinstall" to "<grid_user>/oinstall" followed by a “node rescan” through BDA. Ownership of the file can be changed manually or using custom action in case there is no access to the server.

 

Next Steps:

  • Please make sure you are subscribed to the BDA blog on the BDA community so you will be emailed automatically as we get more information from Oracle.

  Reach out to Support or contact us on the BDA community if you have any questions.

 

Update on October 4th 2019:

     Oracle has confirmed this change and it is as per their expectation. For more information kindly visit below page:
