The Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) is a data collection framework, driven from the command line, which can be used to gather diagnostic information related to Oracle products and their environments. This data is used to assist in problem diagnosis. Complete details on the RDA is available in Remote Diagnostic Agent (RDA) – Information Center (DocID 2388643.2)

In this release, the HCVE pre-installation health checks for eBusiness Suite 12.1.1 and 12.2 have been improved to add certification for recent Linux kernel versions and to use the correct version-specific commands when collecting package information on Solaris 11.

In addition, the pre-installation health check for database version 11.2 on Linux has been corrected so that only client environments are tested for the presence of 32-bit packages.

Other improvements include:

  • Obsolete prompts removed from the WebCenter module for version 12c or later
  • Improvements to error handling in the Oracle Identity Management (OIM) module
  • Addition of kernel versions to the HugePages recommendation in the Linux OS module

This release of the RDA is bundled with the 2.12.39 version of the Diagnostic Assistant (DA). The DA tool is a command-line interface framework designed to simplify and standardize the end user’s experience with various diagnostic tools, providing a common lightweight, extensible interface to multiple collection tools (ADR, RDA, OCM, Explorer, etc.). DA packages can also work with Oracle applications (JDE EnterpriseOne, Siebel, PeopleSoft) as verifiers, providing a basic Java interface to facilitate the user’s data collection.

For more information about the DA functionality, refer to Diagnostic Assistant: Information Center (Doc ID 201804.2)
