1. What is AD Relink used for ?

 

AD Relink is used to relink AD executables. The other executables must be relinked using adadmin.

 

 

This must be done when:

  • the executable programs become corrupt

  • the executable programs are accidentally deleted

  • the server libraries are updated

NOTE: If an executable needs to be relinked during a patching this will be done automatically by AutoPatch. 

2. Which UNIX account has to run the AD Relink ?

 

The owner of the Middle-Tier (applmgr)

 

 

3. How to run AD Relink

 

adrelink force={y|n} [<optional args>] <targets>    => to relink programs individually
or:

adrelink force={y|n} [<optional args>] filelist=<file>    => to relink many programs (are written in a "filelist" file)

where

 <targets> = { <product module> [<product module>] ... }
 <product module> = "<product> <module name>"
- <product> should be in lower case
- <module name> should exactly match the executable name

Valid <optional args> are:

envfile=adsetenv.sh
Used only by the 'adsetup' script

link_debug={y|n}
Will we link executables with debug or not? Default is 'n'


backup_mode={none|all|file}
Which executables will we back up when linking with force=y?


Default is 'file'. Meanings are:
- none: do not back up any executables
- all : back up all executables
- file: do what $APPL_TOP/admin/adlinkbk.txt says to do

NOTES: 

a) force={y|n} is used to specify whether to relink regardless of the status of the library or object files.

 

b) adrelink.sh is situated in $AD_TOP/bin/ directory.

 

 

 

4. AD Relink Examples

 

To get some adrelink examples you can type

 $ adrelink.sh examples

 

[oracle@APPS ~]$ adrelink.sh examples

adrelink sample command lines:

To relink adpatch:
'adrelink.sh force=y "ad adpatch"'

To relink adpatch, adsplice, and adadmin:
'adrelink.sh force=y "ad adpatch" "ad adsplice" "ad adadmin"'

To relink all AD executables:
'adrelink.sh force=y "ad all"'

To relink all executables for a non-AD product:
Use the AD Administration Utility, not adrelink

To relink all executables for all non-AD products:
Use the AD Administration Utility, not adrelink

Type 'adrelink.sh examples filelist' for "filelist mode" information.

 

 

5. AD Relink on Concurrent Processing Server and Forms Server

 

If you are relinking files on the Concurrent Processing Server => Shut down the Concurrent Managers before relink operation.

 

If you are relinking files on the Forms Server =>  All Oracle Applications users must be logged off before relink operation.
