  • Install an underlying technology component used with Oracle APPS

  • The OS was patched

  • Including a new code/ Changing the code into the Applications programs

  • Apply a patch to the Apps Technology Stack

NOTE: For AD utilities relink using AD Relink. 

 

Example of run:

 

 

Enter your choice [7] : 1

AD Administration uses your Oracle Applications environment file
to set up the environment for relinking Applications.

Before proceeding with the relink, you may optionally want to:
- Go back to the menu by answering No below.
- Use an option on the Maintain Files menu
to generate your Applications environment file.
- Edit the file to add any customizations.
- Verify the list of executables in adlinkbk.txt which are saved
before relinking and add any additional executables as desired.
- Choose this option again, and proceed with the relink.

Do you wish to proceed with the relink [Yes] ?

Enter the name of your Oracle Applications environment file below.
File name [VIS_apps.env] :

Reading product executable information...

Enter list of products to link ('all' for all products) [all] : AR

Generate specific executables for each selected product [No] ? Yes

AD Administration can relink your Oracle Applications programs with debug
information. Oracle recommends that you do not relink your programs
with debug information unless asked to do so by Oracle Support Services.

Relink with debug information [No] ?

Relinking selected modules in Receivables.

List of executables in Receivables :

ARBCPC ARCABP ARDLGP ARDSLG ARFXPL
ARGCGP ARGLTP ARGUPC ARLIBR ARLPLB
ARRGTA ARTXMT ARXAAP ARXCER ARXREC
ARXSGP ARZCAR RACUST RAXDEL RAXMTR
RAXTRX

Enter executables to relink, or enter 'all' [all] :

 

 

4. Create Applications environment file (UNIX)

 

AD Mini-pack H and later support creating of the environment files. Lower AD versions do not. 

 

If the AutoConfig is enabled, the AutoConfig will be used to create the environment files:

 

 

Enter your choice [7] : 2

Enter the name of your Oracle Applications environment file below.
File name [VIS_apps.env] :

AutoConfig is enabled in this environment. Therefore, AD Administration will
use AutoConfig to instantiate the Applications environment file based on its
template file.

Instantiating the template file "APPLSYS_ux.env" using AutoConfig ...
Spawned Process 28249
Done.
Review the messages above, then press [Return] to continue.

 

5. Copy files to destinations

 

The product file driver files are read and the product files are copied from product top tree to common location (Java files are copied to JAVA_TOP, HTML files are copied to OAH_TOP).

 

 

6. Convert Character Set 

 

This task must be run when

  • an additional language is added to the APPs

  • changing the base language.

For more details please check the Metalink Note 124721.1

 

 

7. Maintain snapshot information

 

The snapshots store information about the APPL_TOP files (name, version) and patches applied to the APPL_TOP

 

This task must be run BEFORE apply any patch that contains a "compatible feature prereq" line on that APPL_TOP.

 

APPL_TOP snapshot information is stored in the AD_SNAPSHOTS, AD_SNAPSHOT_FILE, AD_SNAPSHOT_BUGFIXES tables.

 

Oracle Applications keeps 2 types of snapshots:

  • unnamed snapshot (the current snapshot)  :  must be up to date

  • named snapshot  = an old snapshot, saved with a name. (this is not updated)

Here are the operations we can do related to the snapshots:

 

Maintain Snapshot Information
-------------------------------------------

1. List snapshots

2. Update current view snapshot

3. Create named snapshot

4. Export snapshot to file

5. Import snapshot from file

6. Delete named snapshot(s)

7. Return to Maintain Applications Files menu

 

 

8. Check for missing Files

 

This task check if all files needed to install, run, upgrade are in APPL_TOP.
