About SharePlex Manager

SharePlex Manager harnesses the technology of Foglight 5 to provide 24 x 7 monitoring of your entire SharePlex infrastructure, from the initial capture of the Oracle redo logs in the source database to the importing and post processing of that data in each target database.


New Features

This release of SharePlex Manager includes the following new features and enhancements.

  • Support for Foglight 5.9.2
  • Support for SharePlex 9.2.0

  • Support for Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, and Windows Server 2016
  • Support for CentOS Linux 6.x and 7.x
  • Support for Oracle Linux 6.x and 7.x
  • Support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.x and 7.x

Known Issues

The following is a list of issues known to exist at the time of this release.

Known Issue Defect ID

When installing on Windows, some users might encounter an "Installer User Interface Mode Not Supported" error.

Workaround 1:

  1. Open the Windows Command Prompt and switch to the directory containing the SharePlex Manager installer.
  2. Enter "SharePlexManager-<version_number>-install-windows.exe -i GUI"
  3. Press ENTER to install in GUI mode.

Workaround 2:

  1. Right-click the installer and select Properties.
  2. Select the Compatibility tab and select Run this program in compatibility mode for. Then select Windows 7.
  3. Click Apply. Then click OK.
  4. Double-click the installer to start the installation process.
If the same SharePlex instance belongs to more than one stream, it will be listed multiple times in the Instance field drop-down list in the Parameter console (once for each stream it belongs to). Also, if the same instance acts as both a Source and Target, it will be listed twice: one entry will be the source entry that when selected will show the source modules; the other entry will be the target entry that when selected will show the target parameter modules. This means that to set the same value for Import, Export, or Post process parameters for a SharePlex instance in all the streams it is a part of, you must set that parameter in each stream separately using the “ALL” setting in the Queue Name field.


Supplemental logging must be ON or else activating configuration will fail with wrongly worded "A bad configuration file." 87972
