I'm trying to upgrade from version 188.8.131.521 to 184.108.40.2066, I've downloaded the upgrade bundle and tried to make the update and got this:
Path to installation distribution was not provided with --install option
Using the current install Location /var/opt/sun/xvm/EnterpriseController_installer_220.127.116.111
No previous Ops Center update installed.
This is a Full bundle
This is update "EC_patch_bundle" at version 18.104.22.1686
DEBUG: /opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/satadm is present on the system
ERROR: This update requires services to be running. Please restart via satadm start.
If the proxy is enabled, start it using proxyadm start
I've checked the service and is offline
# /opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/ecadm status
I've tried to start it but the service is still offline
When starting the EC - it can take a good few minutes for the service to start up.
Next time, you can run:
/opt/SUNWxvmoc/bin/ecadm start -w -v
The "-w" is for "wait" - so the start command will actually wait until the service is up and running before going back to prompt.
If it still fails, check what service doesn't start properly:
# svcs '*scn*' '*common*'
This can give you a good starting point.
Last, once you're done with starting with "-w" (or even before you run it), try checking for known issues with the OCDoctor:
# /var/opt/sun/xvm/OCDoctor/OCDoctor.sh --update
# /var/opt/sun/xvm/OCDoctor/OCDoctor.sh --troubleshoot
I don't know if the disabled services are ok or if I should try to start them; regarding the service in maintenance mode, here's the problem shown in the log:
[ Aug 22 12:18:24 Executing start method ("/opt/SUNWxvmoc/lib/methods/scn-uce-server start") ]
(126)Cannot assign requested address: make_sock: could not bind to address 192.168.40.101:8002
no listening sockets available, shutting down
That IP (192.168.40.101) is not longer valid in the server (it was when I installed Enterprise Manager but now is wrong); my question is: where is this IP information stored in Enterprise Manager so I can change it to the correct value?
I run into numerous problems with this upgrade, spent 6 full working days with different ways of upgrading and fiddling around to no avail.
In the end I just reinstalled 12cU1 from scratch and manually re-added all assets and did the configuration again, it was way faster.
Also the new agent version (b2083) seemed to fix a lot of problems so remember to upgrade your agents as well.
