How to determine the CRS Version?

Filed under: Clusterware — Tags: — syedracdba @ 4:33 pm

The active version or the software version of Cluster (CRS) can be verified with following commands. These versions details are required while upgrading a cluster.

To check the Active Version
Run the following command on the local node.

$ crsctl query crs activeversion
CRS active version on the cluster is [10.2.0.3.0]
Note: The active version is the lowest software version running in a cluster.

To check the Software Version
Run the following command on the local node.

$ crsctl query crs softwareversion
CRS software version on node [racnod01] is [10.2.0.3.0]
Note: The software version is the binary version of the software on a particular cluster node.

Regards,
Sabdar Syed.
