Stat 6.0 - Upgrade Notes

Upgrading Stat Upgrade the Stat Central Agent Upgrade the Stat Oracle Agent (Oracle E- Business Suite only) Additional changes Appendix: Upgrade Checklist

Resolving port conflicts (WebLogic)

On many server installations, standard ports are often already occupied by various systems. By default, the Stat® Central Agent uses port number 8081. If you have port conflicts, the server will display one or more error messages, such as java.net.BindException or Address already in use. To resolve this conflict you may need to change the default service port, 8081.

2
Open file config.xml.

Deleting data sources and connection pools (WebLogic)

Data sources and connection pools are automatically deleted from your environments by default each time you first access the datasource upon a new re-start. This allows the agent to re-connect to an environment even if its connection configuration (such as usernames, encrypted passwords, and port numbers) has been changed, or if the environment has been moved to a new location.

Clearing connection information is controlled by a parameter in the stat.properties file. If for any reason you want to persist connection information after re-starting the agent, open the stat.properties file in <STAT_HOME>/config and change the value of the parameter ClearDatasource to No.

If you change this setting, it is your responsibility to manually delete the datasources if you make any configuration changes (such as usernames, encrypted passwords, and port numbers). To resolve this issue you need to log in to the WebLogic web console interface and manually remove the unwanted data source and its corresponding connection pool from the WebLogic configuration file. After deleting the unwanted data source and connection pool, the Stat® Central Agent will re-create the data source and connection pool with the updated connection information the next time the data source is accessed.

1
Go to http://localhost:8081/console, where local host is the name of the machine the agent is running on and login using the same username and password used to start WebLogic.
2
Click Services and then Data Sources on the Domain Structure tree on the left side of the screen.
3
Click Lock and Edit on the Change Center box in the upper left of the screen.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove StatDataSource. This is the Stat Repository configuration.
5
Click Delete.
7
Click Activate Changes on the Change Center box in the upper left of the screen.

Support IMAP via TLS

In order to support Imap via TLS, the Stat Central Agent needs at least version 1.4.5 of Java® Mail.jar, which you can obtain from Oracle at: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javamail/index-138643.html.

1
Extract mail.jar from the .zip file and place it at \WL_Home\jdk160_21\jre\lib\ext (jdk162_21 may be different on your site).

Testing database and server connections

If you have already defined any database and server connections in the Stat® Repository, you can test the connections in the Stat Web Client after installing the Stat Central Agent.

TIP: You can also test connections in the Stat Windows Client. For more information, see the book, Stat 6.0.0: System Administration, Chapter 4, General Maintenance Tables.

You can validate the connections between the Stat Central Agent and all the databases, ftp file servers, email servers, and VCM repositories currently defined in the Stat Repository.

NOTE: To test connections in Stat Web, you must be assigned the user class right, Agent Test Connect.
2
Enter your assigned user name and password and click Login or press <Enter>. This logs you into the Stat Web Console.
3
Click Menu in the Stat Web Console menu bar. This opens the Stat Menu window.
