One of our DB teams from Europe highlighted the following issues while installation and configuring VM on Exadata X7.



"Today we started X7-2 Exadata installation. But we faced some issues. First problem is, when installing the cluster, resources are being up then suddenly, being down and there are some internal bugs for this problem:


Bug 27275655 - Running tcpdump on bondeth0 kills the Whitney LOM interface
Bug 27523644 - EXADATA X7-2 - CLIENT NETWORK STOPPED WORKING AFTER RUNNING STEP 11
Bug 27195117 - Finisar FTLX8574D3BCV-SU transceiver does not link up on X7-2 LOM
Bug 27130090: X7-2 18.1.1.0.0 - ARP TABLE OF VM NOT DYNAMICALLY POPULATED
 

These are internal bugs required to re-image the whole stack and use the image 18.1.4.0.0. Also, for the PXE(for re-imaging), there is another problem.

Without for those bugs when you are installing ExadataX7.
