    It looks like there's a problem on cell #7. Make sure that it's up, and run a "cellcli -e list cell detail" to make sure that the cell services are all running.

    Hello Andy,

    thanks for Quick response.

    i was wonder, how do you determine this is Cell server #7 ?

    i logged in cell server and cell server 7 is up and running. but not sure if i can post this message in the forum.

    Hi 892564,
    i was wonder, how do you determine this is Cell server #7 ?
    The private network of your first exadata has a default range starting from 192.168.10.1 from the lowest compute node (db01).
    A halfrack contains 11 components in the private network (4 nodes and 7 cells).
    Hence 192.168.10.11 would be cell 7.
    For a full rack this IP would match to cell 3.
    Regards,
    Tycho
