Note: There are total 9 stages in 12.2 Upgrade where database upgrade to 11gR2 or 12c is one of the step.

Issue:

1. Running Autoconfig on Database tier as

$ORACLE_HOME>/appsutil/bin/adconfig.sh contextfile=$ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/PROD1211_iamdemo01.xml

autocfg_error_new

Error messages in AutoConfig logs: /u01/oracle/PROD1211_11204/db/tech_st/11.2.0/appsutil/log/

Oracle Apps R12.2 : Error Starting Admin Server : weblogic.nodemanager.NMException java.io.IOException: Server failed to start up

Wed, 2016-02-03 09:59
This entry is part 8 of 8 in the series Oracle Apps 12.2

This post is from our Oracle Apps DBA (R12.2) Training ( next batch starts on 7th Feb and only 2 seats remaining . We limit number trainees to 15 and We cover Architecture, Installation, File System, WebLogic Concepts, Patching, Cloning , Common Tasks and difference in 12.2 from previous version with Hands-On,  Register here for Oracle Apps DBA 12.2 Training )

One of the trainee from our previous batch, having an issue ” Error Starting server AdminServer: weblogic.nodemanager.NMException: Exception while starting server ‘AdminServer” in Oracle E-Business Suite R12.2 to start AdminServer .

Note: Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 uses WebLogic Server as underlying application Server and you get Weblogic Domain with 1 Admin Server and 4 Managed Servers. Application is deployed in Managed Server and to start Admin Server or Managed Server it rely on Node Manager (part of WebLogic Server) Register here for Oracle Apps DBA 12.2 Training for FREE bonus class on WebLogic with Apps DBA’s.

 

Issue:

1. Starting Services in EBS R12.2 results in error starting Admin Server (adstrtall script calls adnodemgrctl to start NodeManager and adadminsrvctl to start Admin Server)

cd $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME

./adstrtal.sh apps/apps

Error Starting server AdminServer: weblogic.nodemanager.NMException: Exception while starting server ‘AdminServer’

Note: NMException means error in Node Manager (that means Node Manager encountered some error while starting Admin Server)

3. In Node Manager Logfile, error message is /u02/ oracle/PRD12211/ fs1/FMW_Home/ wlserver_10.3/ common/ nodemanager/nmHome1

Fix:

1. Looked into the /tmp directory

drwxrwxrwt. 28 root root 24576 May 22 07:39 tmp

But there is no .ovdlock.tmp

2. So changed the permission to 777 of tmp directory

chmod 777 /tmp

3. Restart adminserver again

cd $ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME
./adadminsrvctl.sh start
You are running adadminsrvctl.sh version 120.10.12020000.9

Enter the WebLogic Admin password:
Enter the APPS Schema password:
Starting WLS Admin Server…
Refer /u02/oracle/PRD12211/fs1/inst/apps/PRD12211_iamdemo07/logs/appl/admin/log/

adadminsrvctl.sh: check the logfile /u02/oracle/PRD12211/fs1/inst/apps/_iamdemo07/logs/appl/admin/log/adadminsrvctl.txt for more information …

And this time AdminServer should be up and running fine.

WebLogic Server Hangs at Startup : Beware if you Disk is 100% full

Tue, 2016-02-02 16:43
This entry is part 5 of 5 in the series WebLogic Server

We were recently implementing  Oracle Fusion MiddleWare for one of our Customer in United Arab Emirates and we encountered issue on WebLogic Server where startup of WebLogic Server hangs (WebLogic is heart of Fusion Middleware that is now used in almost every Fusion Middleware Product and also in E-Business Suite R12.2 and Peoplesoft) which we have described below.

Issue:

While starting WebLogic Admin Server, WebLogic Server was not coming up or hangs at startup at one point without generating any logs. This might come due to many reasons.

WebLogic Server 10.3.6.0 Tue Nov 15 08:52:36 PST 2011 1441050 >
<Jan 29, 2016 3:42:26 AM PDT> <Notice> <WebLogicServer> <BEA-000365> <Server state changed to STARTING>
<Jan 29, 2016 3:42:26 AM PDT> <Info> <WorkManager> <BEA-002900> <Initializing self-tuning thread pool>
<Jan 29, 2016 3:42:26 AM PDT> <Notice> <Log Management> <BEA-170019> <The server log file /mydomain/WLS/user_projects/domains/wls_mydomain/servers/AdminServer/logs/AdminServer.log is opened. All server side log events will be written to this file.>

Cause:

Earlier, we were facing Disk Space Issue (mount where WebLogicDomain directory configured was 100% full) and we got one message as ” No Disk Space Left on Device” because of which WebLogic Admin Server for BI Publisher got into hang state. After providing some Disk space to on the server it was not coming up and stuck at above point.

Fix:

After further investigations, we came to know the issue was with data folder inside /mydomain/WLS/user_projects/domains/wls_mydomain/servers/AdminServer/data folder, so to check if its really issue with data folder we renamed/moved the data folder to data_backup (as this was test environment) and tried to start it again. We analysed the server recreated the data folder by itself (from Admin Server) and started up fine without any hangs.

Upgrading Oracle Apps (EBS) to 12.2 ? OPatch stopped with error “oracle.as.common.clone, 11.1.1.6.0, higher version 11.1.1.7.0 found

Sat, 2016-01-30 13:13
This entry is part 5 of 6 in the series Oracle EBS 12.2 Upgrade

This post is from our Oracle EBS Upgrade R12.2 training where we cover Architecture, Overview of R12.2 & Major features in Upgrading to R12.2, Different upgrade paths available to R12.2, Best practices for R12.2 Upgrade, How to Minimize down time for R12.2 Upgrade, Difficulties/Issues while upgrading to R12.2.

One of upgrade trainee from our previous batch, hitting issue “oracle.as.common.clone, 11.1.1.6.0, higher version 11.1.1.7.0 found” while applying Latest AD and TXK patches  ‘20642039’ in Oracle E-Business 12.2.

Issue:

1. Applying the Latest AD and TXK patches  ‘20642039‘ in Oracle E-Business 12.2 as

export ORACLE_HOME=/u01/oracle/PROD122/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common 

Note: Here /u01/oracle/PROD122 is ORACLE_BASE where Oracle EBS 12.2 is installed and as patch is for ORACLE COMMON Home in Fusion Middleware we set ORACLE_HOME accordingly 

export PATH=/u01/oracle/PROD122/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common/OPatch:$PATH

cd $PATCH_TOP/20642039

opatch apply

And opatch stopped with below messages

Applying interim patch ‘20642039’ to OH ‘/u01/oracle/PRD12238/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common’ 
Verifying environment and performing prerequisite checks… 
OPatch system modification phase did not start:

2. Then we look into Log file at /u01/oracle/PRD12238/fs1/FMW_Home/oracle_common/cfgtoollogs/opatch

/20642039_Mar_10_2010_17_22_28/apply2010-03-10_17-22-27PM_1.log, it was showing below error message

In this case there is another patch mentioned in the DOC ID 1903052.1 The latest AD-TXK codelevel has a dependency on Oracle Fusion Middleware:

So we have applied the patch 20756887 and It completed successfully.

If you are applying Delta 6 to a system on a pre-Delta 5 AD-TXK codelevel, you must apply the Oracle Fusion Middleware patch before proceeding with the AD and TXK patches. If you do not apply this patch, application of the TXK patch will fail.

OAMConsole : 404 Page not found for /oamconsole in Oracle Access Manager 11gR2

Wed, 2016-01-20 04:52
This entry is part 4 of 5 in the series Oracle Access Manager

This post covers issue encountered by one of our trainee in our Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 Training / Workshop (Training starts on 31st January, 2016 Discount of 200 USD is going on till 23rd of January, 2016, Apply Coupon code A200OFF) where /oamconsole was not working. (We provide dedicated machine to practice hands-on during the OAM training)

OAM Console (/oamconsole) is an application to manage Oracle Access Manager Configuration that gets deployed on WebLogic’s Admin Server (when you configure OAM Server). You access OAM Console from http://WebLogicAdminServerHost:AdminPort/oamconsole

Error:

While accessing an oamconsole at http://<host>:<port>/oamconsole

Error Displayed on screen as “404 Page Not Found”

____

Error 404–Not Found
From RFC 2068 Hypertext Transfer Protocol — HTTP/1.1:
10.4.5 404 Not Found
The server has not found anything matching the Request-URI. No indication is given of whether the condition is temporary or permanent.
If the server does not wish to make this information available to the client, the status code 403 (Forbidden) can be used instead. The 410 (Gone) status code SHOULD be used if the server knows, through some internally configurable mechanism, that an old resource is permanently unavailable and has no forwarding address.
_____

Root Cause :

If you hit issues like this then on WebLogic Console /console (this is another application that gets deployed when you create a WebLogic Domain) check status of oam_admin under deployments .

In my case deployment of oam_admin application was in Admin State hence /oamconsole was not accessible  . To find our root cause of application oam_admin in Admin state look at Admin Server log file and possibly try starting application from console (check fix below). In my case Server was hitting max number of open connections so increased limit on number of open connections on server.

 

Fix:

OAM 11g SAML SSO Integration with AtTask

Fri, 2016-01-15 12:19

WorkForce AtTask is a cloud based project management solution and it is capable of talking SAML.

Recently I had integrated AtTask application with Oracle Access Manager 11gR2 for SAML SSO integration where AtTask is SP and OAM is IDP.

AtTask uses its own repository for users. OAM uses AD LDAP for authentication store. Like any general SAML SSO integration, metadata has to be exported and imported into each provider.

The AtTask documentation details how to import metadata and configure mapping attributes.

In this post, I would like to detail what is different in this product for enabling SAML integration.

After enabling SAML SSO integration and importing metadata as per above documentation, we can test the SSO setup using Test the connection. During this process, the user is redirected to IDP and user submits credentials and SAML token is generated and passed onto SP (AtTask).

The test output page contains the $$NAMEID coming from IDP and typically it would be userid and this is the Federated ID. Federated ID is an attribute of AtTask user profile that is key for mapping user based on SAML assertion.

Login to AtTask as administrator. Goto user profile and update Federated ID with $$NAMEID output value. That’s it. You’re all set.

Note that regular login will not work when SAML SSO is enabled in AtTask. Hence it is recommended to update all user profiles with Federated ID value before enabling SAML SSO.

Hope this helps.

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Oracle Fusion Middleware Training

 1601_FMW Webinar450

SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer and TLS is for Transport Layer Security where SSL 3.0 is predecessor of TLS 1.0.

TLS V1.0 was always considered to be little more secure than its predecessor SSL 3.0 however with POODLE vulnerability SSL v3.0 is now completely insecure (Are you still using SSL 3.0 in your Oracle Implementation ? Disable SSL 3.0 and move to TLS immediately)

SSL is one the key important configuration in Oracle Fusion Middleware Deployment specially for external facing applications; be it for Oracle WebCenter Portal, Oracle SOA, Oracle Web Server (OHS) or any other Oracle Fusion Middleware component like WebLogic Server.

Looking at kind of questions we get in our Oracle Fusion Middleware Training (Yes we cover SSL in detail including High Availability, Disaster Recovery, Enterprise Deployment, SOA, OBIEE, WebCenter, WebLogic and OHS) I decided to run a FREE Webinar on SSL in Oracle Fusion Middleware (OHS, WebLogic, SOA etc) .

Password Expiry Issue

Sun, 2016-01-03 09:05

We were trying to start IDM services but services were failing with error as shown in below screen shot

Inline image 1

 

1.     As it was showing issue with OPMN services so we tried to start opmn services manually but it

was failing to start opmn services We looked into opmn log file log (located under

$ORACLE_INSTANCE/diagnostics/logs/OPMN/opmn). And it was showing below issue.

 

[2015-11-17T01:33:48-05:00] [opmn] [TRACE:1] [536] [pm-workers] Job 0 0 result: [[

oid1~oid1~oidmon~OID~2045482973:2865

Status: Stop

Operation: internal (time out while waiting for a managed process to stop)

ErrFile: /u02/oracle/config/instances/oid1/diagnostics/logs/OID/oid1/console~OID~1.log

String: second stop attempted

 

]]

 

[2015-11-17T01:33:48-05:00] [opmn] [NOTIFICATION:1] [663] [pm-process] Stopping

Process: oid1~oidmon~OID~1 (2045482973:2865)

2.     After that we looked into oidmon.log file located under (/u02/oracle/config/instances/oid1/diagnostics/logs/OID/oid1)

[2015-11-17T02:04:27-05:00] [OID] [NOTIFICATION:16] [] [OIDMON] [host: iamdemo04.k21technologies.com] [pid: 4425] [tid: 0] Guardian: [oidmon]: Unable to connect to database,

will retry again after 10 sec

[2015-11-17T02:04:37-05:00] [OID] [NOTIFICATION:16] [] [OIDMON] [host: iamdemo04.k21technologies.com] [pid: 4425] [tid: 0] Guardian: Connecting to database, connect string is oiddb

[2015-11-17T02:04:37-05:00] [OID] [NOTIFICATION:16] [] [OIDMON] [host: iamdemo04.k21technologies.com] [pid: 4425] [tid: 0] Guardian: [gsdsiConnect] ORA-28002, ORA-28002: the password will expire within 5 days

[2015-11-17T02:04:37-05:00] [OID] [NOTIFICATION:16] [] [OIDMON] [host: iamdemo04.k21technologies.com] [pid: 4425] [tid: 0] Guardian: [oidmon]: Unable to connect to database,

will retry again after 10 sec

 

So as shown in logs above  there was some issue with Database users.

Temporary Fix

For fixing the issue temporarily, reset the password of expired users and to check the status of

users, run the below command after connecting to database.

 

SQL> select USERNAME,ACCOUNT_STATUS, LOCK_DATE, EXPIRY_DATE form dba users;

 

After that run below command to reset the password

SQL> alter user <username> identified by <password>;

For Example

SQL> alter user ODS identified by k21technologies;

       

         Permanent Fix

                       For permanent fix of this issue, create one password policy and assign it to database users

as shown in below screenshot after resetting the password

 

SQL> CREATE PROFILE FMWNOLOCK LIMIT FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS UNLIMITED PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME UNLIMITED;

SQL>  ALTER USER ODS PROFILE FMWNOLOCK;

Upgrading Oracle EBS to Release 12.2 ? Here is what you should keep in mind !

Tue, 2015-12-15 11:32
This entry is part 2 of 2 of 4 in the series Oracle EBS 12.2 Upgrade

images (2)

We all know 11i versions of E-business suite are De-supported at all levels and R12.1 De-support dates are near. In this scenario there is a huge requirement of Upgrade to the latest versions (R12.2). Oracle, no doubt adopted latest technology and moves to give the best in industry and so on the Oracle Application side. Latest version on Oracle application is 12.2 (Specific 12.2.5) and it comes with latest technology stack.

The blow points gives the high-level overview of upgrade to R12.2 from the lower versions. Let’s start with Tech stack versions

TECHNOLOGY COMPONENT 11.5.10.2 R12.0.4 R12.1 R12.2/R12.2.5 Database 9.2.0.6 10.2.0.3 11.2.0.1 11.2.0.3/11.2.0.4 Forms/Reports 6.0.8.25 10.1.2.2 10.1.2.3 10.1.2.3 Application Server 1.0.2.2.2 10.1.3.0 10.1.3.4 11.1.1.6/11.1.1.6.7 Webtier – – – 11.1.1.6/11.1.1.9

 

Any upgrade to R12.2 goes through below phases

upgrade-path

  1.  Plan for Upgrade – Better plan is surety of success most of the time. We need to plan and also document all the issues reported so that during the Final-Production upgrade downtime can be minimal. We need to plan and check all the intermediate version are supported if not operational. That is the key point during the planning. Follow the best practices for minimizing the upgrade downtime suggested by Oracle and also as per the client and DBA experiences.
  2. Prepare for Upgrade–  This phase starts after the planning phase and includes Database and Application preparation for upgrade activity. This is the main upgrade phase where we perform all the upgrade activities
  3. Database Upgrade – Select the latest version for database. If 11g database, consider for 11.2.0.4 version or you can plan for 12c versions too. Also apply the latest Consolidate patches as per the database versions. On the application side we need to be on the Minimum base line patches as per the Oracle recommendations.
  4. File System Lay down-  As we know R12.2 comes with latest technology and file-system, so we need to lay down the R12.2 file-system using the latest startCD. Currently StartCD 50 is available.
  5. Upgrade to 12.2.0- We need to first upgrade to 12.2.0 and need to apply AD and TXK patches on the 12.2 filesystem. As this is the intermediate stage we need to perform it as pre-install activity. At this stage Application will not be operational.
  6. Enable Online Patching- As you know new feature of R12.2 is online patching so we need to enable our old instance for the same. This is bit time consuming activity and we need to follow the Online Patching Readiness document 1531121.1 from MOS.  This phase fixes
  • Any Coding Violation
  • Enable edition of Application and or any custom schema.
  • Generate edition views and column

     7. Upgrade further to 12.2.X- We are at 12.2 with latest database now. Now on the application side we can    come to the latest version (12.2.5 Currently). We need to apply the latest technology patches (Delta 7 till now) and EBS RUP patches after that.

  • Middle Tier patches -> 1594274.
  • AD-TXK RUP patches -> 1617461.1
  • EBS R12.2.X Document -> 12.2.4 or 12.2.5
  • All the post upgrade patches and steps

    8. Translations– In case multiple languages are there then we need to take care of Translation patches as well.  12.2 and then 12.2.X translated patches and also we need to apply TSP (Translation Sync Patches).

    9. Customization– Once standard/seeded code is at R12.2.X level we need to take care of the customization’s in our old versions. For R12.2 we have new development standards and need to follow the same to get the custom code compliant with our applications.
