I had requested a CRS patch for Bug:8328904 under really high preassure (Management involved). With a target date of 3rd week of March 2010, I got the patch on 19-Mar-2010 about 2pm local time. Just in time!
So I had the fun to patch a test system on Sunday evening. As allways, it's not that easy as it sounds:
after a slow, but successful preparation of one node and a really easy patch, at restart of the CRS I got
/etc/init.d/init.crs: [[: not found
Ok. I knew this Patch was knitted with really hot needles, so after some checking we applied this diff:
< if [[ "$CMD" = "init.crs" && "$PARENT_CMD" != "startpar" ]]; then
> if [ "$CMD" = "init.crs" ] && [ "$PARENT_CMD" != "startpar" ]; then
All the patching ended at Monday, 2am.
Of course, I updated my SR on Monday morning with this slightly detail.
The answer was overwhelming:
/etc/init.d/init.crs: [[: not found encountered while startup is a known issue and bug is already filed.( bug# 9131555).
The problem is with the 22.214.171.124. bundle 2 . Since the patch was created on top of 126.96.36.199 bundle 2 hence the same error got passed on. The workaround is correct and is same as mentioned in the above mentioned bug. So no problem it is a supported workaround.
What a funny developer!
delivering a patch for a escalated but just in time, delivering another known within it.
Who can tell me why i was not laughing?
