CRS-6706: Oracle Clusterware Release Patch Level (‘xxxx’) Does Not Match Software Patch Level

Problem:

We have restored OCR from backup, started CRS, and rolled back patch using opatchauto. After restarting CRS we’ve got:

CRS-6706: Oracle Clusterware Release Patch Level ('xxxx') Does Not Match Software Patch Level ('yyyy')

Solution:

1. Unlock GI home from root user:

# cd $GI_HOME
# $GI_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -unlock

2. Complete the patching setup from root user (local means it will correct OLR, not OCR):

$ $ORACLE_HOME/bin/clscfg -localpatch

3. As the root user lock the GI home:

# $ORACLE_HOME/crs/install/rootcrs.sh -lock

4. Start CRS:

# crsctl start crs -wait
