Grid Infrastructure upgrade to 11.2.0.4 on AIX - always read log files

Oracle Restart 11.2.0.3 and same version of database has to be upgraded into 11.2.0.4. Looks like quite easy task but I hit some problems with it.

I had 31.9 GB free and OUI through error about disk space. Fair enough cause it also proposed a parameter to ignore it. Current version of GI (11.2.0.3) occupied around 25 GB so i though it will be OK to use a parameter.

-bash-3.2$ ./runInstaller -silent -responseFile /software/oracle/database/aix/grid_reponse_file_11204.rsp \
-waitforcompletion -ignoreDiskWarning
********************************************************************************

Your platform requires the root user to perform certain pre-installation
OS preparation. The root user should run the shell script 'rootpre.sh' before
you proceed with Oracle installation. rootpre.sh can be found at the top level
of the CD or the stage area.

Answer 'y' if root has run 'rootpre.sh' so you can proceed with Oracle
installation.
Answer 'n' to abort installation and then ask root to run 'rootpre.sh'.

As a root user, execute the following script(s):
1. /u01/app/grid/product/11.2.0/grid4/rootupgrade.sh


As install user, execute the following script to complete the configuration.
1. /u01/app/grid/product/11.2.0/grid4/cfgtoollogs/configToolAllCommands RESPONSE_FILE=

Note:
1. This script must be run on the same host from where installer was run.
2. This script needs a small password properties file for configuration assistants that require passwords (refer to install guide documentation).


Successfully Setup Software.

Actually note to myself - CHECK LOGS - especially oraInstall.err and silentInstall.log and to not trust OUI that installation was successful.
In next step I run I run rootupgrade but there was execution permissions errors for these files: rootadd_rdbms.sh, rootadd_filemap.sh, setowner.sh

OK - maybe I could fix it but at this time I checked error log and it was much more errors

Strange enough there were errors related to /tmp space not a GRID HOME location - I have verified all logs files again:

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking Temp space: must be greater than 190 MB. Actual 1265 MB Passed
Checking swap space: must be greater than 150 MB. Actual 16512 MB Passed

So far looks OK but

Free Space: itd11:/u01/app/grid/product/11.2.0/grid4: This is a prerequisite condition to test whether sufficient free space is available in the file system.

OK there is 85 MB MB shortage in /tmp filesystem, cause some of space has been allocated already by OUI itself. I can't complain about disk error problem as I forced OUI to ignore it but I would really appreciate if OUI doesn't display successful feedback when something went wrong ;)



I do a proper cleanup of /tmp and re-run process

Note to myself : Remember do not trust output of command and always read logs


PS.
That remind me one guy I used to know who work as developer. By default all his programs end up with exit(0) C function so if you check error code there was not errors at all.
