SOA Upgrade 11.1.1.3 -> 11.1.1.6

Mon, 2013-09-30 14:50

OAM and EBS Breaks after Cloning

Fri, 2013-04-26 16:04
We are in the process of integrating E-Business Suite with Oracle Access Manager (OAM). Its setup in DEV and TEST but not in PROD yet.    There was a requirement to reclone DEV and as a result the integration with OAM broke. We ran all the configuration steps on the EBS side, such as: $FND_TOP/bin/txkrun.pl -script=SetSSOReg -registerinstance=yes Verifying ASADMIN was active and
