Hi Guys

              We have installed Oracle EBS 12.1.3 in 3 tier as 2 application tier and 1 database tier

server 1 - Concurrent Manager

server 2 - Webs and Forms

server 3 - Database

Now, we need to clone it into a single tier. We ran in all these server and compressed it. So, what are the files required to clone in the single tier to make it.

    The OLAP forum is really not the correct forum for this question.  You may wish to post this question to Installation - EBS (MOSC) .

    Hello User,

    Please check below for furthers steps and see if its going to beneficial for your case scenario: -

    a. Stop the Apps services if is not already done

        $COMMON_TOP/admin/scripts/<CONTEXT_NAME>/ apps/apps

        $COMMON_TOP/admin/scripts/VIS_apps/ apps/apps

    b. Shutdown the Database and stop the listener

        $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/scripts/<CONTEXT_NAME>/ stop VIS

        $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/scripts/<CONTEXT_NAME>/ stop immediate VIS

        $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/scripts/VIS_db/ stop VIS

        $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/scripts/VIS_db/ stop immediate VIS

    c. On the target system, create the directory where the Applications will be cloned

        [[email protected] ~]$ su - root


        [[email protected] ~]# mkdir /APPS_11i

        [[email protected] ~]# chown oracle:dba /APPS_11i

    d. Copy the following application tier directories from the source node to the target application tier node:







    <COMMON_TOP>/_pages (when this directory exists)

    <806 ORACLE_HOME>


    Source Node = apps.localdomain Destination Node = linux1.localdomain

    /APPS_MI/visappl /APPS/visappl

    /APPS_MI/viscomn/html /APPS/viscomn/html

    /APPS_MI/viscomn/java /APPS/viscomn/java

    /APPS_MI/viscomn/util /APPS/viscomn/util

    /APPS_MI/viscomn/clone /APPS/viscomn/clone

    /APPS_MI/viscomn/_pages /APPS/viscomn/_pages

    /APPS_MI/visora/8.0.6 /APPS/visora/8.0.6

    /APPS_MI/visora/iAS /APPS/visora/iAS

    The files are copied from the apps node (apps.localdomain) and db node (db.localdomain) to the new node ( linux1.localdomain). This type of cloning is very similar with a single node system to single node system.

    e. Copy the DBF files and ORACLE_HOME to the target system

    Source Node = db.localdomain Destination Node = linux1.localdomain

    /APPS_DB/visdata /APPS/visdata

    /APPS_DB/visdb /APPS/visdb

    f.  Start up the source Applications system database and application tier processes (optional)

    g. Configure the target system database server


          Connected as ORACLE:

          cd <RDBMS ORACLE_HOME>/appsutil/clone/bin

          perl dbTier

       cd /APPS/visdb/9.2.0/appsutil/clone/bin

          perl dbTier

    h. Configure the target system application tier server nodes


          Connected as APPLMGR:

          cd <COMMON_TOP>/clone/bin

          perl appsTier

          cd /APPS/viscomn/clone/bin

          perl appsTier



    Windows user only: add <806 ORACLE_HOME>\bin to the system path before running this step

    When you run on appsTier as APPLMGR, APPLMGR must have write permission to the oraInventory
