1. In the EBS_ROOT directory, like D:\Oracle\VIS, there is a file EBSapps.cmd. I create a shortcut to that and move it to the desktop. Then when you click on it, you can select R or P and get that environment in a command prompt window.
Then cd %ADMIN_SCRIPTS_HOME%
2. Start/stop are the same as on Linux except have a .cmd instead of .sh
3. The adop commands are exactly the same as on Linux
4. adadmin is exactly the same as on Linux, except you cannot regen jar files while the applications are up
5. I usually start/stop the database from the services panel on Windows. All environment variables are like %APPL_TOP% instead of $APPL_TOP
Supposing, I am first time hired apps dba to manage the server. And I do not know which folder was EBS installed.
Is there a way to find where is EBS_ROOT located? Or which are apps and database folder located?
Or as first timer in windows, what things do I need to know?
It is the same as Linux. If you do not know where the applications are installed, you have to open Windows Explorer and look at the drives installed and how much space it used then click on the different folders to find EBS_ROOT. Just like df -h on Linux and going to /u01/oracle.
Do I need to invoke Cygwin to be able to run EBS commands? Or it is already set in the SYSTEM path?
Do I need to use the "run" file edition? Just like it linux? Does windows have also "patch" file edition as well?
You don't have to invoke Cygwin at all, just run the EBSapps.cmd file. You have to add c:\Cygwin\bin to the PATH before installing EBS.
There are run and patch filesystems. Just select R or P when accessing EBSapps.cmd.
Thanks Micheal and ALL,
