Setting up the display


Most Linux servers are accessed via Secure Shell protocol (SSH ) through utilities such as putty . The JD Edwards installation process involved the Oracle Universal Installer which requires that the Linux server be setup for the display . Following are some general tips for that.


Trying to run the installer without setting up the display will produce an error similar to this


We need a X server to display the  installer to which requests will be sent through X11 forwarding to the local machine.


1. Install a X server on the machine where you are running putty . The X traffic will be directed to this server and consequently the image displayed.


These are third party tools . Popular Open source one is Xming.


2.  Configure the linux server in order to enable X11 forwarding .


     a) Install the required package in linux

          Below is an example package installation for the test instance used. You would have to work with your Linux Administrator to find the Xwindow related packages related to your linux version


b) Enable X11 forwarding by editing the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file




3) Enable X11 forwarding in your ssh client ( e. g. puty)

Save a session with this configuration to avoid resetting this each time.


Test that your display setup is ready.


You can test that your display setup is correct by running 'xclock' command. This should display a graphic clock if your setup is good.



Plan the ports to be used by the JD Edwards installation and work with your linux admin to configure the firewall , so that the ports are accessible by other JDE servers.


When there is a firewall between the EnterpriseOne HTML Server and the Enterprise Server, set the PredfinedJDENETPorts setting to 1 in the JDE.INI file of the Enterprise Server. This setting enables JDENET network process to use a predefined range of TCP/IP ports. This port range starts at the port number that is specified by serviceNameListen and ends at the port that is calculated by the equation serviceNameListen = maxNetProcesses - 1. You must open these ports in a firewall setup to successfully connect the EnterpriseOne HTML Server to the Enterprise Server.


OS parameters

Based on a rough value of expected number of users , review Linux tuning document for the parameters to be set

The management of financials of a Joint Venture is key to the successful business relationship between joint venture partners. Accurate management of joint venture, budgets, costs, invoices and payments help ensure transparency of the joint venture financials. Joint Venture Management (G09J) provides the architectural foundation to create and manage Joint Ventures and the Distribution of Interest among the joint venture partners.


A new enhancements for Joint Venture Management is now available to define and manage Allocations for Joint Ventures.  Allocations are the process of accumulating costs for various accounts for specific allocation business units and then cascading these costs to the business units which got the benefit from these expenses.


The Advanced Variable Numerator (AVN) method of computing joint venture-based allocations provides the same functionality that is available in the account balance-based variable numerator method but also supports allocations to different joint ventures and joint venture business units for indirect costs incurred by the managing partner.


The transactions to be allocated are excluded from the joint venture distribution process until the allocation process is complete. After the costs are allocated to the impacted business units, the amounts are distributed to the partners, including the managing partner.


The new Joint Venture Management enhancements can be downloaded from the Update Center under Bug 28711697 - JOINT VENTURE MANAGEMENT – ALLOCATIONS


For more detailed information on this functionality, please review: New Enhancement –Joint Venture Management Allocations EnterpriseOne 9.2 (Doc ID 2508350.1)

After generating production plan using MRP, have you ever wondered if we have enough resource capacity to execute the production plan in the shop floor successfully? Capacity Requirement Planning (R3382) can be used to calculate / identify current total available capacity and compare it against the planned capacity to validate if you have enough capacity to execute the production plan.

Have you ever received a request from the business to have some changes in the Sales Order Entry (P4210) form, to make it friendly for the user? Or from the buyer who have to deal with lots of purchase orders everyday and could perform their job faster and easier if an specific screen only displays the data they are interested to see?


You can make that available to the user with not much work and no customization required at all. The answer is in Personal Forms / Defined Queries. You will find more details in Understanding Personal Forms Available in 9.2.1 Tools Release and Newer (Doc ID 2204303.1). Make the difference for your business today!

A customer calls and indicates that they want the quantity on their sales order increased, or they need to move the Request Date up.  The sales team changes the sales order line without hesitation because, well, it is the sales team.  No problem, right?  Well….what if the sales order detail line in question has a related work order associated to it?


Changes on the sales side can be difficult, if not disastrous, for shop floor personnel depending on where the work order is at in the process.


When changes are made to sales order detail lines that have related work orders, how does this affect shop floor personnel that are responsible for the work orders?  How is the shop floor group notified? Should they be notified?  Is there a point in the work order process when it is too late to fulfill a sales order change?


The first step in the sales order/work order change process is to verify the version of Enter/Change Work Order (P48013) being called as defined in Processing Option 11 of the Versions tab of P4210.  The associated version of P48013 should be defined with some thought as work order statuses are updated based on related sales order changes.


Processing options behind the Sales/Configured tab of the Enter/Change Work Order program (P48013) provide users the ability to define if, and how, they want to be alerted to changes to associated sales orders.  To ensure that sales order changes will update associated work orders accordingly, the processing options behind the Sales/Configured tab of P48013 must be populated.  The following processing options should be given serious consideration as changes to associated sales orders can have significant implications to the work order side.

  1. Held Status Code
  2. Changed Status Code (Before Cutoff)
  3. Changed Status Code (After Cutoff)
  4. Canceled Status Code
  5. Cutoff Status Code


To learn more about this process, see Sales Order & Work Order Status Change Process (Doc ID 651056.1).

Did you know that you can have valuable sales information for your customers at your fingertips, just by setting an option in the P42101? There’s a little setup to be done behind the scenes, but this handy form is a one stop shop where the user can see the credit limit and total exposure, access available templates and make selections from them, and display the current order amount.


And if that wasn’t enough, how about the ability to show the client’s previous orders over a configurable time period, view and adjust margins, see item availability, override prices, and more?!


All these features are encapsulated under program ID P4015PE, which can be launched either from CRM processes or directly from the P42101. For more details on this feature see Setup Sales Order Entry (P42101) to use Order Guide (Doc ID 2506419.1).
