    DR setup for Oracle EBS R12.2.5/DB 11.2.0.4

    Ali_1900

      Hi there,

       

      We are to setup EBS R12.2.5 DR using following Oracle Note:

      Business Continuity for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2 Using Oracle 11g (11gR2) Physical Standby Database (Doc ID 1491855.1)

       

      It looks understandable till Section 5:

      Section 5: Configure the Application Tiers After the Standby Database has been Enabled

       

      In 5.1 Configuration 1: Configuring the Standby application tiers to connect the STANDBY Database, it talks about steps as follows:

      5.1.1 Convert the Standby to a Snapshot Standby

      5.1.2 Configure the Standby Application Tiers

      5.1.3 Revert the Physical Standby Database Back to its Original State

       

      Section 5.1.1 is also fine but when we check section 5.1.2, it says:

      1. Log on to the run edition file system on the standby system as the APPLMGR user and enter the following commands:

        $ cd <COMMON_TOP>/clone/bin

        $ perl adcfgclone.pl appsTier

       

      2. Run adpreclone.pl on the run edition file system in the standby system.

       

      3. Copy the Oracle E-Business Suite application directories (<APPL_TOP>, <common_top>,Oracle AS Tools 10.1.2 Oracle_Home) from the run edition file system to the patch edition file system on the standby system.

       

      4. Once you have cloned the run file system, you also need to clone the patch file system from the run file system.

       

      Here we got a couple of questions to clear before we can go further...

       

      a. Since we are setting up DR, how come we already have standby system? How can we login to run edition FS on the standby system as above step 1 says this?

      b. Do these steps (1 and 2) are same or separate?

      c. Step 3 is not clear. From which node to copy the directories from the run edition FS to patch edition FS on the standby system?

      d. Step 4 needs to be elaborated as well.

          Hi

           

          a. Since we are setting up DR, how come we already have standby system? How can we login to run edition FS on the standby system as above step 1 says this?

          You need to copy the run file system from primary site and run the adcfgclone in DR site

           

           

          b. Do these steps (1 and 2) are same or separate?

          5.1 DR Application will connect to standby database

          5.2 DR Application will configure with Primary database

           

           

          c. Step 3 is not clear. From which node to copy the directories from the run edition FS to patch edition FS on the standby system?

          In step 3 you are performing adcfgclone so it is run file system from here you need to copy the file system to patch edition

           

           

          d. Step 4 needs to be elaborated as well.

          In this step we are added all the standby application to Prinmary database hence we need to check whether managed servers will come up or not

          so check the maanged services in standby application node.

           

          $ admanagedsrvctl.sh start <any manager server for example oacore_server4>

            Since we are at AD-TXK Delta 7 and Support Note says:

            Note: In AD-TXK Delta 7, we recommend you clone the Application tier run and patch file systems in a single operation, using the 'dualfs' option. Separate cloning of the run and patch file systems will be deprecated in the future.

             

            What would be the actual command to clone both tiers at once using dualfs?

             

            thanks.

              Hi

               

              If you are om AD-TXK Delta 7  you can use dualfs
