Maintain Snapshot Information: 
This will sync up your application tier with database.
http://oracleappstechnology.blogspot.com/2008/05/appltop-snapshot-feature.html

Run the following command to locate the properties file that you want to customize to preserve your settings:
R11i10

sh $AD_TOP/bin/adtmplreport.sh contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE target=$IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/etc/xmlsvcs.properties

R12

sh $AD_TOP/bin/adtmplreport.sh contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE target=$INST_TOP/ora/10.1.3/j2ee/oafm/config/oc4j.properties

Navigate to the location of the template directory and create a custom subdirectory to store to store your customization:

cd $FND_TOP/admin/template

mkdir custom

Copy the template file to the custom directory. and edit to add custom entries and run autoconfig”

What is staging area ?
Staging Area is special directory structure where you can dump 11i installation software so that you don’t have to insert CD’s during install and these disks will automatically be picked by Installer.
Q. How you set up staging area ?
Use adautostg.pl to create staging area orcreate required directory manually for staging like (following directories under Stage11i – startCD, oraApps, oraDB, oraiAS, oraAppsDB, oraNLS and inside these directories Disk1, Disk2…).

ident $OA_HTML/OA.jsp
(ie: Header: OA.jsp 115.26 2002/01/18 14:49:41 pkm ship)

Attention: The version of OA.jsp in $FND_TOP/html should be the same as the one in $OA_HTML if the version of OA.jsp does not match do the following :
Run adadmin.
Choose the option called Maintain Application Files.
Choose the option called Copy files to destination.

Note: If the ident command returns a no such file error or does not return any version information for OA.jsp then you have not installed the Oracle Applications Self Service Framework. Please use this metalink document to install the Self Service Framework.

Note: ident is not available on SUN & AIX. In this instance please use:
adident Header $FND_TOP/html/OA.jsp and
adident Header $OA_HTML/OA.jsp

How to compile JSP in Oracle Apps ?
You can use ojspCompile.pl perl script shipped with Oracle apps to compile JSP files. This script is under $JTF_TOP/admin/scripts. Sample compilation method is
perl ojspCompile.pl –compile –quiet

compiling few jsp’s
Clear the following files from $OA_HTML/../_pages/_oa__html
rm _qot*.*
rm _xx*.*
ojspCompile.pl –compile -s ‘%qot%.jsp’ -log $HOME/err.log –flush
ojspCompile.pl –compile -s ‘%xxdhr%.jsp’ -log $HOME/err.log –flush
Confirm _qot*.* and _xx*.* files exist (after running the above Perl script)
in $OA_HTML/../_pages/_oa__html directory

Compile JSPs (~ 45 mts)
cd $FND_TOP/patch/115/bin
perl ojspCompile.pl –compile –flush -p 2

TO start dataInstaller
jre oracle.apps.per.DataInstall apps pwd thin dbt11.unix.flarock.com:1551:OABT

jre oracle.apps.per.DataInstall apps thin ::

hrglobal.drv
PER_TOP/patch/115/driver

To check to make sure the correct data was installed run the following script this script can also be used to check if datainstaller was run successfully:
select application_short_name, Legislation_code, status, action, last_update_date
from hr_legislation_installations
where application_short_name in (‘PER’,’PAY’);

To check the version of the iAS 1.0.2.2.2 
cd <ias_oracle_home>/Apache/Apache
httpd -version

To check the version of the forms
f60gen

To relink manually
adrelink.sh force=Y ranlib=Y “AD”
./adrelink.sh force=y ranlib=y “WPS WPCFSQ”

To complile forms and reports library
cd $ORACLE_HOME/forms/lib32
Note: if this directory does not exist: cd $ORACLE_HOME/forms/lib
$ make -f ins_forms.mk install

cd $ORACLE_HOME/reports/lib32
Note: if this directory does not exist: cd $ORACLE_HOME/reports/lib
$ make -f ins_reports.mk install

Relink Procedure Builder, Forms, Graphics and Reports: 
cd $ORACLE_HOME/procbuilder60/lib; make -f ins_procbuilder.mk install
cd $ORACLE_HOME/forms60/lib; make -f ins_forms60w.mk install
cd $ORACLE_HOME/graphics60/lib; make -f ins_graphics60w.mk install
Reports has both link-time and run-time dependency with libjava.so so you need to append $ORACLE_HOME/network/jre11/lib/linux/native_threads in

$LD_LIBRARY_PATH before linking Reports. The same $LD_LIBRARY_PATH should be used at run-time.
cd $ORACLE_HOME/reports60/lib; make -f ins_reports60w.mk install

Relink iAS and Oracle Home using 
$IAS_ORACLE_HOME/bin/adlnkiAS.sh and $ORACLE_HOME/bin/adlnk806.sh

To fin perl version
$ perl -version

To find java version
$ java -version

To find JDK version:

To find Version
$ string –a dis4pr | grep –i ‘discoverer version’
The location for looking for dis4pr is $ORACLE_HOME/diswb4/bin

To start discoverer
Script to start discoverer server is addisctl.sh under $OAD_TOP/admin/scripts/$CONTEXT_NAME
— This script in turn start discoverer processes which can be start by startall.sh under $ORACLE_HOME/discwb4/util (This script is different from adstrtal.sh)
— startall.sh calls scripts like startgatekeeper.sh, startlocator.sh , startoad.sh, startosagent.sh to start gatekeeper, locator, oad & osagent resp.
In Apps two major way to access EUL is via Discoverer view & Discoverer Plus edition (You can use Discoverer Administration Edition as well)

How to find JDBC thin driver that your iAS 1.0.2.2.2 is using ?
A simple java program & procedure to compile it that will give your jdbc thin driver version.
Create a file with name JDBCVersion.java in your middle tier (Application Tier)
———
import java.sql.*;
import oracle.jdbc.driver.*;
class JDBCVersion
{
public static void main (String args[])
throws SQLException
{
// Load the Oracle JDBC driver
DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());
// Get a connection to a database
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection
(“jdbc:oracle:thin:@(DESCRIPTION=(LOAD_BALANCE=YES)(FAILOVER=YES) (ADDRESS_LIST=(ADDRESS=(PROTOCOL=tcp)(HOST= ) (PORT= )))(CONNECT_DATA=(SID=)))” ,”apps”,””);
// Create Oracle DatabaseMetaData object
DatabaseMetaData meta = conn.getMetaData();
// gets driver info:
System.out.println(“JDBC driver version is ” + meta.getDriverVersion());
}
}
———–
Replace following parameters
1. with your database hostname or IP address
2. with your database port no.
3. with SID for your database
4. with your apps password
After changing save it with name JDBCVersion.java in your middle tier & execute command
javac JDBCVersion.java
This will create class file in your workign directory. Include your current directory into your classpath like
export CLASSPATH=$CLASSPATH:/
then execute
java JDBCVersion
you should see output like
JDBC driver version is 9.2.0.6.0
Which means you are using jdbc thin driver version 9.2.0.6.0.

How to check if Apps 11i System is Autoconfig enabled ?
Under $AD_TOP/bin check for file adcfginfo.sh & if this exists use
adcfginfo.sh contextfile= show=enabled
If this file is not there , look for any configuration file under APPL_TOP if system is Autoconfig enabled then you will see entry like
# AutoConfig automatically generates this file. It will be read and …….

Context Editor 
Application <common_top>/util/editcontext/
Database /appsutil/editcontext/
“To run the Context Editor:
On UNIX
editcontext
If the [COMMON_TOP]/util/editcontext (for Unix) or [COMMON_TOP]\util\editcontext (for Windows) directory does not
exist, please refer to MetaLink Note 165195.1 titled “”Using AutoConfig to Manage System Configurations with Oracle
Applications 11i””.
Copy the Context Editor meta data file adctxinf.tmp to the common top directory under util/editcontext/etc and rename
it as adctxinf.xml:
on UNIX:
cp $AD_TOP/admin/template/adctxinf.tmp [COMMON_TOP]/util/editcontext/etc/adctxinf.xml

EDITING CONTEXT FILE 
Editing Context file(xml file) in Oracle apps R12 using Context editor.
It is a mandatory thing that you should not edit the context file or xml file manually .
Context editor should be used for this(This can be used for updating ports or to change any configuration)
of application Tier or database tier.
follow these steps to install context editor in your existing oracle apps R12 system.
Apply patch 2873456 from metalink
after applying you will not be able to invoke the editcontext executable and you will get a error. this is because jre 1.1.8 which is
supplied along with this patch is no longer supported.
So download jre1.5.0_10 from sun.java.com and unpack it inside the path editcontext/jre/Linux/
and rename the old 1.1.8 jre inside that
then go to the bin directory inside the editcontext directory
open the file runWizard.sh
and accordingly replace the jre directory and also replace the jre executable with java in the same file ..
and invoke it from
$RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME/appsutil for editing database context(xml) file.
$COMMON_TOP/util for editing Application context(xml) file.
Syntax is
./editcontext
Before editing shutdown the application tier and after editing run autoconfig.sh to update the configuration files to reflect the new value.

The URL for ext web node is
JTF Login Page for customers using CRM (Check for each MT using real host names).
http://:port/OA_HTML/jtflogin.jsp

start Apache in SSL mode as root (on web025) using following cmd:

How will you identify if you are using Forms in Socket or Servlet mode in Oracle Applications 11i or R12 ?

You can find out the form are in Socket or Servlet mode in form configuration file it is in $COMMON_TOP/html/bin and the file name is “appsweb_SID_hostname.cfg”.

s_forms_servlet_serverurl If value is blank that means this is not servlet else if value is “/forms/formservlet” this indicates forms servlet.

In the context file, unde OA variable, ‘frmConnectMode’

Edit the AutoConfig context file.
If you are currently using E-Business Suite level 11.5.9 or above, or have applied FND.G patchset (or above), you will use Oracle Applications Manager to edit your context file. For all previous versions, you will use the AutoConfig Context Editor tool.
To edit the context file using Oracle Applications Manager, login to Oracle Applications Manager and navigate to Site Map > AutoConfig > Edit Parameters.
To edit the context file using the AutoConfig Context Editor tool, enter the following commands:

% cd [COMMON_TOP]/util/editcontext/
% ./editcontext”

To convert host specific url to user friendly url

Make host entries for ebus and make the following xml file changes and run autoconfig.

1. Autoconfig. In autoconfig-enbled environment configuration file mwa.cfg is written by autoconfig. So it would be good to modify any configuration setting that you want to be permanent via AutoConfig editor in OAM. For all MWA server configuration variables OA_VAR begins from s_mwa. There is also a description for each parameter.
2. R12. While in 11i mwa.cfg is located in $MWA_TOP/secure, in R12 it’s in $INST_TOP/admin/install. Startup script mwactl.sh in R12 is located in $INST_TOP/admin/scripts
3. Dispatcher. If we are going to run multiple servers (specified by mwa.TelnetPortNumber / s_mwaTelnetPortNo) then we most likely will also use dispatcher to load balance client requests between MCSA telnet servers. We use mwa.Dispatcher=host:port to set MCSA dispatcher (in AutoConfig there is s_mwaDispatcherPort for the port setting). To start|stop dispatcher we can use:
mwactl.sh start_dispatcher | stop dispatcher.
Dispatcher is MWADIS binary within $MWA_TOP/bin directory. We can check whether it’s running using:
ps -ef | grep MWADIS
4. OAM. There are Generic Services (MWA MSCA Telnet Server & MWA MSCA Telnet Dispatchers) in OAM that corresponds to MSCA telnet server & dispatcher respectively and can be used to start/stop them automatically.
5. Server shutdown. When we use
mwactl.sh -login / stop [port]
– it’s so called graceful shutdown. MCSA Telnet Server won’t stop unless there are no clients currently using it. If you need to force shutdown, use stop_force instead of stop
6. Tracing. Setting mwa.LogLevel could be very useful for trobleshooting issues with MWA In 11.5.10/R12 this will usually produce serveral files within MWA log directory:

But for performance tuning we can also use SQL tracing. It can be enabled by setting mwa.LogLevel (s_mwaLogLevel) to performance. SQL trace file will be put into usual user_dump_dest directory on database server.

The steps that needs to be done to disable MWA are as follows: 
1. Modify the $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/etc/mobile.properties file by commenting out the following line:
servlets.startup=oracle.apps.mwa.wap.engine.WapServlet

2. Comment out the following lines in the $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/etc/jserv.properties file:
zones=mobile

3. Comment out the following lines in the $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/etc/jserv.conf file:
ApJServGroupMount /mobile balance://OACoreGroup/mobile

Check if tcfsocket server is running
ps -ef|grep jre|grep comn

The AutoConfig check utility

The AutoConfig check utility is located at Target Database Tier /appsutil/bin
i) Check the AutoConfig configuration files by executing the following command
adchkcfg.sh contextfile=.xml  appspass= – This report provides information about All the profile options that get changed during the next normal execution of AutoConfig.
– For every profile option there is information about the current value in the database, the changed value and the AutoConfig script that changes the profile option.
– The script will also create a zip file report “ADXcfgcheck.zip” that contains all the files and reports mentioned above, so that you can copy the ADXcfgcheck.zip to a local desktop PC and view the html report from there without breaking the hyper-links in the report.

How to change all Applications user passwords 
In apps, there are times when we want to force all the application users to change their passwords. In apps 11i, we have a concurrent request under System Administrator->

CP SQL*Plus Expire FND_USER Passwords

This concurrent request basically sets the fnd_user.password_date to null for all apps users. The users are thus prompted to change their passwords on next login

Responsibility attached to a users 
SELECT UNIQUE u.user_id, SUBSTR (u.user_name, 1, 30) user_name,
SUBSTR (r.responsibility_name, 1, 60) responsiblity,
SUBSTR (a.application_name, 1, 50) application
FROM fnd_user u,
fnd_user_resp_groups g,
fnd_application_tl a,
fnd_responsibility_tl r
WHERE g.user_id(+) = u.user_id
AND g.responsibility_application_id = a.application_id
AND a.application_id = r.application_id
AND g.responsibility_id = r.responsibility_id
ORDER BY SUBSTR (user_name, 1, 30),
SUBSTR (a.application_name, 1, 50),
SUBSTR (r.responsibility_name, 1, 60);

Query useful when user wants to get application wise responsibility list 
SELECT (SELECT application_short_name
FROM fnd_application fa
WHERE fa.application_id = frt.application_id) application,
frt.responsibility_id, frt.responsibility_name
FROM apps.fnd_responsibility_tl frt;

####### Script to create LENOVO User ###################

Using following tables we can get the end-user access details:
APPLSYS.FND_LOGINS
APPLSYS.FND_LOGIN_RESPONSIBILITY
APPLSYS.FND_LOGIN_RESP_FORMS
APPLSYS.FND_UNSUCCESSFUL_LOGINS
FND_CONCURRENT_REQUESTS
ICX.ICX_FAILURES

Clients requires to restrict duplicate user sessions usually, so in previous project we setted ICX_SESSIONS of DISABLED_FALG=Y to restrict the duplicate session of E-buss suite user. { This can obtain by patch 21228669 }

Requirement:

Client want to secure login policy to more robust for users of 11i.
> The password contains at least one letter and at least one number
> The password does not contain the username
> If user tried more than 3 attempts , password should lock
> If user unable to login more than 2 attempted, need weekly report of those users.

After doing a bit R & D, recommended for the client the following:

1. Change the profile option ” Signon Password Failure limit” to 3, defalt is None.
2. Change the profile option ” Signon Password Hard to guess” to YES, defalt is NO.
3. We are sheduling a con.program weekly using the tables FND_UNSUCCESSFUL_LOGINS and ICX.ICX_FAILURES to reports on login attempts.
