Testing Environment Connections

The Oracle Applications Connections Maintenance table defines the Oracle Applications environments and servers that Stat can connect to. These are the environments available for selection on CSRs and the various object wizards. Within the definition for each environment is the information Stat needs to connect to it.

Oracle Applications connection security is controlled by the following user class rights:

The Oracle Application Connection Maintenance table is displayed in a standard maintenance window. To open this window, select Maintenance | General | Oracle Applications Connect.

Defining Oracle Applications Servers

In the Oracle Apps Environment Servers table, you define one or more servers that host the four service partitions required for each Oracle Applications environment. These service partitions include Web Service, Forms Service, Concurrent Manager Service, and Admin Service. To open the table, select the environment you want and click Servers.

Active

If selected, indicates that the server is active

Server Name
(Required Value)

A user defined character code which uniquely identifies the server in Stat

Server Host
(Required Value)

The physical hostname (as opposed to the value in the Server Name field, which is user defined). This must be the server’s exact name (i.e., the value returned by hostname).

Platform
(Required Value)

The server’s operating system

Working Directory
(Required Value)

The location where the Stat Oracle Agent temporarily unzips patch files. A patch file is only stored in the directory while Stat is applying the patch with AutoPatch. After the patch has been applied, the patch file is removed.

Autobatch Size

Batch size parameter for AutoPatch

Autoparallel Workers

The number of parallel workers used by autopatch

Web Srv

Indicates if the server hosts a Web Service

Forms Srv

Indicates if the server hosts a Forms Service

Concurrent Srv

Indicates if the server hosts a Concurrent Manager Service

Admin Srv

Indicates if the server hosts the Database Service, also known as the “Administration Server” in Oracle documentation

Start Concurrent Cmd

Command run by the Stat Oracle Agent to start Concurrent Manager Service

Stop Concurrent Cmd

Command run by the Stat Oracle Agent to stop Concurrent Manager Service

Start Forms Cmd

Command run by the Stat Oracle Agent to start Forms Service

Stop Forms Cmd

Command run by the Stat Oracle Agent to stop Forms Service

Start Web Cmd

Command run by the Stat Oracle Agent to start Web Service

Stop Web Cmd

Command line run by the Stat Oracle Agent to stop Web Service

Ping Multiplier

The rate in 30 second increments at which the Oracle Agent updates the MEC_WAKE table and reports its status in Oracle Agent Status window (opened from the Tools menu). The default value is 1, meaning every 30 seconds. To increase the time amount, enter a higher value, e.g., meaning 120 seconds (4x30=120 seconds). The default value is 1.

If the value is set to 0, the agent does not report its status and will always be shown as 'Not Responding'.

Server Code

If you want to start/stop the Oracle Agent associated with this server from the Window's Client, you must first define a Server entry for this agent in the Maintenance | General | Object Types | File Servers window. This entry must be defined with an SFTP protocol, and SSH must be running on the server running the Oracle Agent. Generally, the applmgr user should be used for the Username and Password or Key exchange authentication for logging into the Oracle Agent server. Once the Server entry is created, you may associate the Server Code with this Oracle Agent entry.

NOTE: In order to source the environment when SSH logs in, you might be required to add the “./.ssh/rc” command to Post login cmd on the File Servers tab of the Object Type Maintenance window. In this case make sure that the rc file sources your Oracle E-business environment and sets your STAT_JAVA_HOME.

OA Stat Home

This is the STAT_HOME location defined for this Oracle Agent on the Oracle E-Business server.

OA Config File

If you override the default location for the OA config file with a “-s” switch, you must enter it here.

OA Stat Java Home

If you override the default STAT_JAVA_HOME of the Oracle Agent with a “-j” switch, you must enter it here.

When defining servers for an Oracle Applications environment, be aware of the following:

When specifying commands that start and stop any of the Oracle Apps services, you can use the appsusername and appspwd parameters to pass the user name and password values specified in the Apps User and Apps Pwd columns in the Oracle Applications Environment Connection Maintenance table. For example, to start a Concurrent Manager in R12, you would specify:
$INST_TOP/admin/scripts %%appsusername%%/%%appspwd%%

Start/Stop Oracle Applications Agents

After you install the Oracle Application Agent on each defined server, you may start/stop the agent, edit the stat.conf file, retrieve OA Agent logs, or change OA Agent log mode from the server list.

Oracle Agent Configuration - You may use this button to retrieve your stat.conf file from the OA Agent conf directory. At this point, you may view or edit the content of the file before saving it back to the server.
Start/Stop Oracle Agent - You may use this button to start/stop the OA Agent for the selected server. Once the OA agent is started, the Status column for the server will display Started along with a green check mark. Once the OA agent is stopped, the Status column for the server will display Stopped along with a red X.
Oracle Agent Logs - You may use this button to retrieve a list of logs from the OA Agent log directory. Once the list is retrieved, you may view the content of the log or export it.
Oracle Agent Log Mode - The current log mode defined for the Oracle Agent is displayed in the drop-down and can be changed while the agent is running. Select the desired mode from the drop-down and click the button beside it.
Refresh Oracle Agent Status - Once you attempt to start or stop the Oracle Agent, you may use this button to refresh the current status of the OA agent.
Show SSH logs - SSH protocol is used to run the Start/Stop commands on the Oracle Agent server. For troubleshooting purposes, you may need to view the SSH logs generated by the commands that are run on the server. Make sure to select this check box before executing the Start or Stop command.

Inactivating Oracle Applications Environments

To inactivate an environment, de-select Active. Stat displays a warning message if the environment is currently part of a migration path.
