Oracle Database Appliance Patch 2.3.0 was just released to the public it seems.
A couple of things 2.3 is not a cumulative patch if you are running 2.1 you will need to apply the 2.2.0 patch before proceeding to 2.3.0 .
if you have secured your ODA using STIG Implementation Script for Oracle Database Appliance [ID 1461102.1]
there is now a step to disable the STIG security.
Database Patching is now Rolling upgradable , Yay
There is a new
oakcli show databases
to verify database version before and after a patch.
There is also a
oakcli upgrade database
in case you are still on 22.214.171.124 to upgrade the database.
There are a lot of new features in this patch
Multi-homes and Multi-DB support
Supported versions are 126.96.36.199.7 and 188.8.131.52.3
oakcli create and oakcli delete are used to create and delete new databases and database homes
Db Configuration parameters.
# oakcli show db_config_params -detail -- to look at config parameters
# oakcli create db_config_params -conf newconf -- to create a config file based for use with oakcli create
Most of the data is from the Readme . I will install it and see how it works out and what other undocumented stuff is in the patch
