Re: Oracle Applications Parallel Concurrent Processing (PCP) Testing Question

Hello Kumar,

In principal is the apps listener (8.0.6), the listener needed to be used by FNDSM to control all the services in control by GSM. The failover should work for instance failures. In case instance 1 fails, the concurrent managers having instance 2 as the secondary, will fail over. This is arranged by FNDSM on the second node, running instance 2. For the internal concurrent manager, the internal Monitor will spawn a internal concurrent manager, when it detects that it is not running on another server.

Regards, Gerwin
