1.2 Hosts, Directories, and Files Required by Upgrade Orchestrator
Familiarize yourself with the following information before proceeding with the
upgrade:
1-2 Upgrade Guide
Hosts, Directories, and Files Required by Upgrade Orchestrator
■
Host Types
■
Directories and Files Required by Upgrade Orchestrator
1.2.1 Host Types
The Release 9 upgrade must be performed on the following host types:
■
■
■
■
■
Primordial host: The location of the Common domain, specifically the
Administration Server of the Common domain. Only one primordial host exists in
each environment.
IDM host: A combination of hosts which hosts OID, OIM, OAM, IDM OHS, and
IDM Database services.
OHS host: The host where the Oracle HTTP Server (OHS) software is installed
and configured.
DB host: The host where the Oracle Fusion Applications database is installed and
configured.
Midtier hosts:
–
Primary host: The host on which the Administration Server of a domain runs.
Only one primary host exists in a domain.
–
Secondary host: The location of the managed servers for any application
when they are not on the same host as the administration server of the same
domain. Typically used when a domain spans two physical servers.
–
BI host: The host where the Oracle Business Intelligence (Oracle BI) software
is installed and configured.
Note that all of these host types can be scaled out to multiple hosts, and Upgrade
Orchestrator must be run on each scaled out host for all host types, with the exception
of DB hosts. For more information, see "Scaling Oracle Fusion Applications" in the
Oracle Fusion Applications Installation Guide.
1.2.2 Directories and Files Required by Upgrade Orchestrator
The following directories and files are referenced in this guide and are required by
Upgrade Orchestrator:
■
■
■
■
SHARED_LOCATION: You create this directory in a shared location, which is
accessible to all hosts in the environment, including scaled out hosts. For more
information, see Section 2.3.2, "Create Directories in a Shared Location".
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION and ORCHESTRATION_
CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION: You create these directories under
SHARED_LOCATION, where orchestration checkpoint related files are saved. For
more information, see Section 2.3.3.1, "Orchestration Checkpoint Locations." These
directory locations are stored as properties in the pod.properties file. For more
information, see Table B–1, " pod.properties".
SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION: You create this temporary directory to copy
files and perform write operations. For more information, see Section 2.3.3.2,
"Shared Upgrade Location."
ORCH_LOCATION: This directory is created when you unzip orchestration.zip
and is referred to as the orchestration directory. For more information, see
Section 2.3.7, "Unzip Orchestration.zip".

Back Up Strategy
■
■
POD_NAME: You can create this directory under ORCH_LOCATION. The name
of the directory created is referred to as POD_NAME throughout this guide.
Manifest files: Manifest files are .xml type distribution files that are required by
both Upgrade Orchestrator and Health Checker. They are used throughout this
guide to define specific tasks performed during the upgrade process.
1.3 Back Up Strategy
Before you start the upgrade process, you should have a clear understanding of the
backup requirements, as there are multiple components involved in an Oracle Fusion
Applications environment. An effective and accurate backup strategy helps to restore
from the point of failure without having to restart from the beginning.
Note that backups are manual steps and can be automated outside of Upgrade
Orchestrator based on your IT requirements and processes. For detailed information
about required backups, see Section 5.2.1, "Back Up Oracle Fusion Applications."
The following components must be backed up:
■
■
Oracle Fusion Applications, including:
–
Oracle Fusion Applications database
–
APPLICATIONS_BASE
–
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG
–
Oracle Identity Management database
–
Upgrade Orchestration directories
–
OHS and /etc/hosts files
–
Central Inventory
OPSS Security Store: This component is backed up by Upgrade Orchestrator.
You must back up your Oracle Fusion Applications upgrade at multiple stages during
the upgrade process. It is recommended to back up your entire Fusion Applications
environment, including your databases, at the following points:
■
Before the upgrade
■
After the upgrade
■
Before the language pack upgrade starts, if you have additional languages
installed
For additional back up steps that are specific to Windows, refer to Section 5.2.2, "Back
Up Steps for Windows Platforms".
Upgrade Orchestrator provides default pause points to perform these back up steps,
depending on your upgrade path. For more information, see Section 5.1.5, "Pause
Point 2 - Back Up Oracle Fusion Applications".
1.4 Planning Your Downtime
Consider the following suggestions when planning your downtime for the upgrade:
■
■
1-4 Upgrade Guide
Perform pre-downtime steps ahead of time. For more information, see Chapter 2,
"Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade".
Perform your database patching in a separate maintenance window. For more
information, see Chapter 3, "Updating the Oracle Fusion Applications and Oracle
Directories Structure Overview
Identity Management Databases".
■
Perform steps to check system reliability in pre-downtime mode after all
prerequisites are met. For more information, see Chapter 4, "Running
Pre-Downtime Checks".
1.5 Directories Structure Overview
Upgrade Orchestrator references and uses the following directories:
■
ORCH_LOCATION Directory
■
Download Directories
■
Oracle Fusion Applications Shared Directories
1.5.1 ORCH_LOCATION Directory
The following figure shows the directory structure that is created when the
Orchestration.zip file is unzipped, and is referred to as ORCH_LOCATION. For more
information, see Section 2.3.7, "Unzip Orchestration.zip".

Incremental Provisioning
1.5.2 Download Directories
The following figure shows the directory structure that you create during the
preparation of your environment for the upgrade. There are specific files that must be
downloaded into each of these directories. For more information, see Section 2.3.2,
"Create Directories in a Shared Location".
Figure 1–2 Directory Structure of Downloaded Patches and Repositories
1.5.3 Oracle Fusion Applications Shared Directories
The following home directories are referenced during the upgrade steps:
■
■
■
APPLICATIONS_BASE: The root directory for the Oracle Fusion Applications
product binary files.
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG: The root directory for the Oracle Fusion Applications
configuration and instance files.
FA_ORACLE_HOME: The Oracle Fusion Applications Oracle home directory. This
directory is located under the APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps directory
(net/mount1/appbase/fusionapps). The /fusionapps directory is an Oracle
Fusion Applications Middleware home (APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps).
For more information, see "Oracle Fusion Applications Shared Directory Structure" in
the Oracle Fusion Applications Installation Guide.
1.6 Incremental Provisioning
Incremental provisioning gives you the ability to extend your Oracle Fusion
Applications environments during the upgrade, by adding product offerings that are
introduced in a release that is higher than the release of your existing Oracle Fusion
Applications environments. Note that a product offering is a logical grouping of
features and functionality of Oracle Fusion Applications.
To use incremental provisioning, you must have used the Provisioning Wizard from a
prior release to create the environment. For more information, see Oracle Fusion
Applications Installation Guide. You can also use incremental provisioning if your Oracle
Fusion Applications environment is created from Oracle Fusion Applications Oracle
VM templates. For more information, see Oracle Fusion Applications Installing and
Managing in an Oracle VM Environment.
In Release 9, a new offering called Supply Chain Financial Orchestration (FOS) is
added to the Oracle Fusion Supply Chain Management product family. You must
perform the incremental provisioning task manually during the incremental
provisioning pause point to add the FOS offering if your environment meets one of the
1-6 Upgrade Guide
Incremental Provisioning
following conditions. If none of the conditions are true, then you must skip the
incremental provisioning task.
■
■
Bare Metal environments: You used the Provisioning Wizard to select product
offerings and provision your environment on several hosts. The environment
contains any one of these product offerings: Product Management, Order
Orchestration, or Material Management and Logistics from Supply Chain
Management, or Procurement from Financials.
Oracle VM environments: You have an environment created from one of the
Oracle Fusion Applications Oracle VM templates not managed by Oracle Cloud
and the Oracle VM template that you used is GSI (available since Release 7) or
FSCMH (Financial, Supply Chain Management and Human Capital Management,
available prior to Release 6).
Note:
Bare Metal: An environment that does not include any software. In the
context of Oracle Fusion Applications, this means you must install a
supported version of the operating system in order for the computer
system to be functional prior to provisioning Oracle Fusion
Applications.
Oracle VM: An environment running on virtual servers. In the context
of Oracle Fusion Applications, the supported virtualization
technology is Oracle VM Manager. Installing an Oracle Fusion
Applications Oracle VM template creates multiple Oracle VM servers
running a version of the Linux operating system that comes with the
Oracle VM template on the virtual servers.

2-2 Upgrade Guide
Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
2.2.3 Free Disk Space Requirements
The disk space requirements in the following table are recommendations for how
much disk space should be added on each host type. During the pre-downtime phase,
Health Checker reports an error if your environment does not meet these
requirements. The disk space check is not checking for total space. It is checking only
for usable disk space, which is defined as free space, with respect to quotas and
permissions. All recommendations and requirements assume non-shared access to the
disk space. Therefore, if you have multiple hosts or processes running against the
same physical disk, the size of this disk needs to be determined with respect to all
sharing tenants. The requirements in the following table do not consider disk sharing
scenarios.
Table 2–2
Free Disk Space Requirements

400MB for log directory. This is shared between the hosts. Log directory is
the value configured for the LOG_LOCATION property in IDM.properties.
2.2.4 Set the Recommended Data Segment Size (AIX Only)
Perform this step before you start the upgrade if you are running Oracle Fusion
Applications on an IBM AIX platform.
Set the recommended data segment size for the primordial, Midtier, and OHS hosts in
/etc/security/limits. Refer to "Increase the Open Files Limit" in the Oracle Fusion
Applications Installation Guide for the recommended data segment size for IBM AIX on
POWER Systems (64-bit). Note that you must reboot the server for this change to take

2.3.1 Create a Common User Group and Permissions for Shared Directories
The following steps outline the process for setting up permissions on directories that
are shared across multiple hosts and are used by Oracle Fusion Applications Upgrade
Orchestrator. These steps are required if you use different operating system (OS) users
and groups to own Oracle Fusion Applications components (such as FA, FMW, and
IDM) on the hosts in the Oracle Fusion Applications environment (such as, Primordial,
OHS, and IDM). An OS user and group is considered to be the same across all hosts
only if the corresponding IDs (User ID and Group ID) are also the same across the
hosts. The minimum requirement for Upgrade Orchestrator is that the files in the
SHARED_LOCATION must be owned by the same group. All OS users that own Oracle
Fusion Applications components on various hosts must belong to the common group,
in addition to other groups to which they already belong. Note that the SHARED_
LOCATION must be exported with the no_root_squash option, or its equivalent, to allow
root user access to files in the SHARED_LOCATION that are owned by the applications
user. For more information about the SHARED_LOCATION, see Section 2.3.2, "Create
Directories in a Shared Location".
1.
Determine the OS group and Group ID that you want to use for owning the shared
directories. As an example, you can use orch as the common group to be used
across the hosts.
2.
The following steps must be executed as a privileged OS user, such as root, on all
hosts that participate in orchestration.
a.
Create the common group, if needed.
(Linux) /usr/sbin/groupadd -g group_ID -f group_name
(Solaris) /usr/sbin/groupadd -g group_ID group_name
(AIX) /usr/bin/mkgroup id=group_ID group_name
b.
Add each distinct Oracle Fusion Applications component (FA, FMW, DB,
IDM) OS owner on each host to the common group.
(Linux) /usr/sbin/usermod -a -G group_name component_OS_owner
(Solaris) EXISTING_GROUPS=$(grep -w component_OS_owner /etc/group |awk -F:
'{print $1}' |xargs echo | sed 's/ /,/g') /usr/sbin/usermod -G ${EXISTING_
GROUPS},group_name component_OS_owner
(AIX) lsgroup -a users group_name /usr/bin/chgroup users=list_of_existing_
users,component_OS_owner group_name
You must log out of any sessions that were open prior to this change for OS
users being modified, and then log in again so the changes take effect.
c.
Mount the file system to be used for the shared directories on all hosts.
d.
Perform the following steps on one of the hosts, such as the primordial host.
■
2-4 Upgrade Guide
Create a top-level directory that is passed to orchestration under which
additional directories and files are created during orchestration. This directory
is referred to as SHARED_LOCATION and is further described in Section 2.3.2,
"Create Directories in a Shared Location".
Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
■
Perform the following steps before any additional content is created in the
shared directories. These steps are applicable to Linux and UNIX platforms,
such as AIX, Solaris Sparc and Solaris X64.
–
Change the group ownership of the top-level directory to the common
group, such as orch.
(Linux and UNIX) chgrp common_group SHARED_LOCATION
–
Set permissions on the directory so that the group has read, write, and
access privileges.
(Linux and UNIX) chmod g+r,g+w,g+x SHARED_LOCATION
–
Set the Directory group ID bit for the top-level shared directory. This
allows for any subdirectories and files created under this shared directory
to be owned by the same group, regardless of the host from where they
are created.
(Linux and UNIX) chmod g+s SHARED_LOCATION
3.
Perform the following steps on all hosts that participate in orchestration. You must
be logged in as the OS user that owns the Oracle Fusion Applications content on
the host when you run these steps.
a.
Set the default mask for files so that the group has sufficient privileges on the
files.
umask 0007
b.
Confirm that the group changes are effective. The groups command displays
all groups that the current OS user belongs to. You must confirm that the
common group, orch, is one of them.
(Linux and UNIX) groups
c.
Confirm that the permissions are set up correctly on each host. To do this, you
can create a temporary file in the shared directory and confirm that the file is
owned by the common group and that its permissions are correct. For
directories, the group should have read, write, and execute privileges. For
files, the group should have at least read and write privileges. Run the
following commands after you create the temporary file.
The following command should show that the file is owned by the common group:
(Linux and Unix)) ls -ls file_name
The following command prints the group and group ID ownership for the file.
(Linux) stat --printf="%G %g\n" file_name
(Solaris) echo "group: `ls -ld file_name|awk '{print $4}'" "`"; echo
"groupid:`ls -dn file_name | awk '{print $4}'" "`"
(AIX) istat file_name | grep Group
Then remove the temporary file.
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-5
Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
Note: When you unzip the contents of a ZIP archive into the shared
folder, the group ownership can be lost on some folders and files. This
issue is specific to the unzip utility. To work around the issue, run the
following commands when you extract contents to the shared folder:
jar -xvf ZIP_archive
unzip -q -o ZIP_archive
4.
Ensure file permissions are correct by performing the following steps, as a
prerequisite to starting orchestration.
a.
Change directory to FA_ORACLE_HOME/hcm/hrc/bin.
b.
Run chmod -R 755 *.
c.
During the upgrade, patch_stage directories are created in a location which is
parallel to the APPLICATIONS_BASE directory. If the user ID who is running the
upgrade does not have write permissions, the Consolidating Repository and
Downloaded Patches configuration assistant reports a failure. To avoid this
failure during the upgrade, ensure that the user who runs Upgrade
Orchestrator has write permissions on the top level directory parallel to the
APPLICATIONS_BASE directory, which is typically /net/mount1.
2.3.1.1 Set Up Shared Folders and Permissions on Windows
Perform the following steps for Windows on one of the hosts, for example, Host1.
1.
Create a top-level folder, such as C:\Shared on Host1, that will be passed to
orchestration, and under which additional folders and files are created during
orchestration.
2.
Perform the following steps before any additional content is created in the
top-level folder. Repeat these steps to share the top-level folder to one or more
Windows Domain users who will be accessing this top-level folder from the hosts
in the Oracle Fusion Applications environment (Primordial, OHS, RDBMS, and
IDM).
a.
In Windows Explorer, right click on the top-level folder and select Properties
from the context menu.
b.
In the Properties window, click the Sharing tab, then click Share.
c.
In the File Sharing window, enter the domain user name using the format
DomainName\username.
d.
Click Add. This adds the given domain user name to the list of users with
whom the folder is shared.
e.
Select the domain user name that was added and change the permission level
to Read/Write.
f.
Click Share and then click Done to save and close the File Sharing window.
g.
Click Close to close the Properties window.
This shared folder can be accessed via the path \\Host1\Shared.
3.
2-6 Upgrade Guide
Perform the following steps on all hosts that participate in orchestration.
a.
Log in to the host using the DomainName\username you used in Step c.
b.
Create a symlink, such as C:\Shared, using following command:
Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
mklink /D C:\Shared
\\Host1\Shared
2.3.2 Create Directories in a Shared Location
Create the directories required for the upgrade in a shared location that is accessible to
all host types, including scaled out hosts, in your Oracle Fusion Applications
environment. This location is referred to as SHARED_LOCATION in this Upgrade Guide.
Note: If you are upgrading more than one environment, those
environments can be configured to access this SHARED_LOCATION to
avoid duplicating the software downloads. These directories must
also be available to all users and if different users create any of the
directories, the users must belong to the same shared group.
The directory names in this section are suggested names and are referenced
throughout the upgrade steps. You can choose to use your own naming conventions.
See Figure 1–2, "Directory Structure of Downloaded Patches and Repositories" for
more information.
Note: Avoid creating any repository in a deeply nested directory on
Windows. The Windows PATH variable has a limited size, and long
directory names may cause it to overflow. For example, c:\work\my_
repository is a better choice than
c:\Work\WorkInProgress\FusionApps\FusionAppsv1\Nov2012\tempf
iles\my_repository.
Create the following directories for Release 9 repositories:
■
SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/Repository
■
SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0_post_repo_patches
■
SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade
■
SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/LP (required only if you have installed languages
other than US English)
2.3.3 Create Directories Common to One Environment
Create the directories described in this section in shared storage that is available to all
users and all host types within the environment that is getting upgraded. Although
not mandatory, these directories can also be configured to be shared across other
environments.
2.3.3.1 Orchestration Checkpoint Locations
Create the following directories for storing checkpoint information:
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION
This is a shared location available to all hosts in the environment where
orchestration checkpoint related files are saved. Ensure that you select a shared
mount point that has high disk I/O performance, especially for writing.
Orchestration framework automatically creates POD_NAME under the directory you
specify. This location is stored in the ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-7
Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
property in the pod.properties file. It is a best practice not to use ORCH_
LOCATION/config as a value for this property.
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION
This is a shared location available to all hosts in the environment where
orchestration checkpoint related files are archived. Ensure that you select a shared
mount point that has high disk I/O performance, especially for writing.
Orchestration framework automatically archives the checkpoint file stored under
the POD_NAME directory in the directory specified by the ORCHESTRATION_
CHECKPOINT_LOCATION property. This location is stored in the ORCHESTRATION_
CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION property in the pod.properties file. It is a best
practice not to use ORCH_LOCATION/config as a value for this property.
2.3.3.2 Shared Upgrade Location
Create a directory referred to as SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION. This is a temporary
directory required by the upgrade to copy files and perform write operations. Ensure
that you select a shared mount point that is shared across all hosts for a given
environment that has high disk I/O performance, especially for writing. This area can
be cleaned up after all of your environments have been successfully upgraded to
Release 9.
Also create the following directory:
SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION/healthchecker/common
Grant write access to the group that you created in Section 2.3.1, "Create a Common
User Group and Permissions for Shared Directories" as well as the checkpoint location
and shared upgrade directories that you created in this section.
2.3.4 Download and Unzip the Patch Conflict Manager Utility
Download and unzip patch 19322759 from My Oracle Support into the SHARED_
LOCATION directory. Unzip this patch as the same user that runs the upgrade. This will
create the PatchConflictManager directory with relevant files under SHARED_LOCATION.
The SU wrapper version required to execute Patch Conflict Manager is 1.01. Verify that
the version in PatchConflictManager/PCM_Config.properties is WLS_SUW_MIN_
VERSION=1.01 before upgrading to Release 11.1.9.x.0. If this version is not 1.01, then
update it to 1.01.
2.3.5 Download and Unzip Repository and Patches for the Upgrade
Download the following repositories and patches for upgrading to Release 9:
■
Download and Unzip the Release 9 Repository
■
Download and Unzip Release 9 Language Packs
■

For each language installed in your environment, download the Release 9 language
pack from http://edelivery.oracle.com to the SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/LP
directory. The location of the downloaded language packs is recorded in the REL9_LP_
REPOSITORY_LOCATION property in the Primordial host properties file, as described in
Table B–2, " PRIMORDIAL.properties".
You can run the following query to find all installed languages in your environment:
select LANGUAGE_TAG, ISO_LANGUAGE, ISO_TERRITORY from FND_LANGUAGES where
INSTALLED_FLAG in ('I', 'B')
2.3.5.3 Download and Unzip Mandatory Post-Release 9 Patches
If there are no post-release patches in Technical Known Issues,
Oracle Fusion Application 11g Release 9 (11.1.9) when you upgrade, there
is no action required for this step and you can proceed to Section 2.3.6,
"Download the Invalid Objects Patch for Exclusion List."
Note:
Upgrade Orchestrator can apply mandatory post-release patches that are required by
Oracle Fusion Applications, if you download these patches from My Oracle Support
before you start the upgrade. Note that this feature relates only to patches that are
documented in Technical Known Issues, Oracle Fusion Application 11g Release 9 (11.1.9)
and that are specifically required for 11g Release 9 (11.1.9).
Perform the following steps to download patches for Release 9:
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-9

Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
If your database tier runs on a different platform from Oracle Fusion Applications
or Oracle Fusion Middleware, you must download RUP Lite for RDBMS
specifically for the platform on which your database tier runs.
Note: If you downloaded any Oracle Fusion Applications patches,
you will apply them after the upgrade, as described in "End-to-End
Process for Applying Multiple Patches" in the Oracle Fusion
Applications Patching Guide.
5.
This step is applicable only if you downloaded Oracle Fusion Applications
Upgrade patches in the previous step.
Create a patch plan by running the adGenerateFAPatchPlan.pl Perl script for
Oracle Fusion Applications Upgrade patches. The adGenerateFAPatchPlan.pl
script is located in SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/Repository/installers/farup/Disk1/upgrade/bin and
reads the patch metadata from these patches to generate the patch plan file,
FAPatchPlan.xml. If the latest LCM update bundle is included in the downloaded
LCM Tools patches, then adGenerateFAPatchPlan.pl is located in download_
location_for_lcm_patches_only/patch_bundle_patch_
number/files/lcm/ad/bin.
To run this script, use the Perl executable from APPLICATIONS_
BASE/dbclient/perl/bin for UNIX platforms and APPLICATIONS_
BASE\dbclient\perl\5.8.3\bin\MSWin32-x64-multi-thread for Windows.
Set the PATH environment variable to /u01/APPLTOP/dbclient/perl/bin:$PATH.
Set the PERL5LIB environment variable to APPLICATIONS_
BASE/dbclient/perl/lib/5.8.3:APPLICATIONS_BASE/dbclient/perl/lib/site_
perl/5.8.3/:APPLICATIONS_BASE/dbclient/perl/lib/site_perl.
Then use the following command syntax to create the patch plan file:

2.3.6 Download the Invalid Objects Patch for Exclusion List
Sets of validations are performed at various stages of the upgrade. One such validation
is the check for database objects in an invalid state. In certain scenarios, a set of objects
gets into an invalid state during intermediate stages of an upgrade and can be safely
ignored. The list of objects to be ignored is delivered as a file through a downloadable
patch.
Download patch 17051994 for Release 11.1.9.x.0 from My Oracle Support and copy all
files named as FA*overrides.xml, from the patch to the SHARED_UPGRADE_
LOCATION/healthchecker/common directory. Create this directory if it does not already
exist.
2.3.7 Unzip Orchestration.zip
Perform the following steps to download and unzip the latest versions of
Orchestration.zip and the Health Checker framework.
1.
The latest version of the Orchestration.zip file is uploaded to patch 18198108 on
My Oracle Support after Release 9 is released. To ensure you have the latest
version of Orchestration.zip, download patch 18198108 from My Oracle
Support. The patch contains Orchestration.zip, readme.txt, and
validateOrchVersion.py scripts. Extract the patch contents to a temporary
location.
Note: Do not download the patch while Orchestration is running or
while upgrade orchestration exits due to a pause point or a failure.
This patch can be downloaded and used only in case of restoring the
environments to the original state. For this case, the upgrade must be
started from the beginning.
The patch delivers solutions to issues that were identified post
release. If you do not find content under patch 18198108 associated
with the high watermark release you are upgrading to, no new
version of Orchestration.zip was released yet. Use the
Orchestration.zip file that is delivered in the Release 11.1.9.x.0
repository, located at SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/Repository/installers/farup/Disk1/upgrad
e/orchestration.
Note:
2-12 Upgrade Guide
Set Up Upgrade Directories and Obtain Software
2.
Unzip the Orchestration.zip file from the appropriate location, as described in
Step 1, to SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0. Unzip the Orchestration.zip file as the
same operating system user that was used to set up the Oracle Fusion
Applications environment. If you unzip the file as a different user, refer to
Section 2.3.1, "Create a Common User Group and Permissions for Shared
Directories".
When you unzip Orchestration.zip, a directory named orchestration is
created. This directory is referred to as ORCH_LOCATION. For more information, see
Section 1.5.1, "ORCH_LOCATION Directory".
3.
If you did not download the patch in Step 1, proceed to Step 4. If you downloaded
the latest Orchestration.zip file from the patch in Step 1, run
validateOrchVersion.py to validate the version of Orchestration.zip. This
confirms that the correct Orchestration.zip file was unzipped to the shared
storage location:
validateOrchVersion.py ORCH_LOCATION
If the script finishes with errors, ensure that the ORCH_LOCATION argument passed
to the command is correct and that it points to the location where the latest
Orchestration.zip file was unzipped. If the argument is correct, contact Oracle
Support for further assistance.
4.
The Orchestration.zip file contains the Health Checker framework. After
unzipping Orchestration.zip, ensure that you have the latest version of Health
Checker by downloading patch 18057568 from My Oracle Support. If there is no
patch available, use the Health Checker packaged with Orchestration.zip.
5.
If the patch is available, unzip patch 18057568. Then copy the contents of the
lcm/hc directory in this patch to the ORCH_
LOCATION/fusionapps/applications/lcm/hc directory. Overwrite the contents in
this directory. If this patch is not available, there are no newer versions of Health
Checker and you can proceed to Section 2.3.8, "Copy and Unzip idmUpgrade.zip."
2.3.8 Copy and Unzip idmUpgrade.zip
Perform the following steps to stage the latest idmUpgrade.zip file only if your
environment meets all of the following requirements:
■
Runs on a Linux, Solaris, or AIX platform
■
IDM configuration is SINGLE, 3-NODE, or 4-NODE
■
1.
Was freshly provisioned in Release 7 and upgraded to Release 8 OR was freshly
provisioned in Release 8
The latest version of the idmUpgrade.zip file is available in patch 18238574. Ensure
that you always uptake the latest version of idmUpgrade.zip from this patch.
Note: To use a new version of the idmUpgrade.zip file downloaded
from the patch, after you have started the upgrade, terminate any
running orchestration instances, perform Cancel and Restore steps,
and start the upgrade from the beginning.
If you do not find patch 18238574, no new version of idmUpgrade.zip has been
released yet, and you can use the file that is delivered in the Release 9 repository,
REPOSITORY_LOCATION/installers/farup/Disk1/upgrade/idmupgrade.
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-13

2.
Unzip idmUpgrade.zip, using the unzip -K option, to any temporary location,
referred to as temporary_unzip_location.
3.
Copy the contents of temporary_unzip_location/rel9/idmUpgrade to SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade.
4.
Create the SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade/lib directory.
5.
This step is platform dependent:.
■
For Linux and Solaris, include SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade/lib
in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH by running the following command on all IDM
terminals of IDM hosts before starting orchestration:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH= SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade/lib:$LD_
LIBRARY_PATH
■
For AIX, include SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade/lib in the
LIBPATH by running the following command on all IDM terminals of IDM
hosts before starting orchestration:
export LIBPATH = SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade/lib:$LIBPATH

3.
Create a subdirectory to contain setup files for the environment that you are
upgrading, using a name that you define, in the ORCH_LOCATION/config directory.
This location can be configured to be shared across multiple environments that are
being upgraded. In this case, this location is referred to as POD_NAME. For example,
you could use this location for your test, production, and development
environments, if you are upgrading all three environments to Release 9.
cd ORCH_LOCATION/config

2.4.2 Select a Master Orchestration Password
Section 2.4.4, "Prepare to Register Database Schema Information" requires a password
which is referred to as the "Master Orchestration Password" in this documentation.
Decide upon the master orchestration password at this time. Note that this password
must be a minimum of 8 characters long and it must contain at least one alphabetic
character and at least one numeric or special character.
2.4.3 Prepare RUP Lite for OVM
Note: Perform the steps in this section only if you are running Oracle
Fusion Applications in an Oracle VM environment that was created
from official releases of Oracle VM templates for Oracle Fusion
Applications Release 2 (11.1.2) and higher. This content is not
applicable for any Oracle VM environments that are created using
other methods.
To determine if the Oracle VM environment was created from official
releases of Oracle VM templates for Oracle Fusion Applications
Release 2 and higher, you can verify if the /assemblybuilder directory
is present in the Oracle VM environment. This confirms that the
environment is an OVAB. To confirm the release version, you must
review the .labelinfo.txt and .misclabels.txt files in the
u01/APPLTOP/ovabext directory to check the rehydration labels that
correlate to the release version. Also check if there is a /u01/ovmext
directory to determine if it is an Oracle VM IDM instance.
Perform the following steps to install the Oracle Fusion Applications 11.1.9.x.0
Lifecycle Management Tools for the Oracle VM Installer repository on the Oracle VM
hosts. This repository includes RUP Lite for OVM.
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-15
Set Up Upgrade Orchestrator
1.
The latest version of the fasaaslcmtools.zip file, after Release 9 is released, is
uploaded to patch 18329681 on My Oracle Support. To ensure that you have the
latest version of fasaaslcmtools.zip, download patch 18329681 from My Oracle
Support. The patch contains fasaaslcmtools.zip, readme.txt, validate.py, and
validate.label. Extract the contents of the patch to a temporary location.
The patch delivers solutions to issues that were identified post
release. If you do not find content under patch 18329681 associated
with the high watermark release (11.1.9.x.0) you are upgrading to, no
new version of fasaaslcmtools.zip was released yet. In this case, use
the fasaaslcmtools.zip file that is delivered in the Release 11.1.9.x.0
OVAB_HOME. OVAB_HOME is the top-level directory for the Oracle Virtual
Assembly Builder that contains all software needed to deploy Oracle
Fusion Applications as an Oracle VM instance.
Note:
2.
Unzip fasaaslcmtools.zip to a temporary location and ensure that you specify
this temporary_location/fasaaslcmtools location in the REL9_SAAS_LCM_
INSTALLER_DIR property in the pod.properties file. For more information, see
Section 2.4.6, "Update Orchestrator Properties Files".
3.
Copy the entire contents of the REL9_SAAS_LCM_INSTALLER_
DIR/Disk1/preupg/rupliteovm directory to SHARED_LOCATION/ORCH_
LOCATION/config/POD_NAME/11.1.9.x.0/rupliteovm.
4.
Run validate.py, from the location where the patch was downloaded in step 1,
to ensure that the correct fasaaslcmtools is used for the upgrade, using the
following command syntax:
validate.py fasaaslcmtools_SHIPHOME_LOCATION
The value for SHIPHOME_LOCATION is the value for the REL9_SAAS_LCM_INSTALLER_
DIR property from Step 2. If the script finishes with errors, confirm that the
command and the argument passed to it are correct. If both values are correct,
contact Oracle Support for further assistance.
5.
Verify that the env.properties file under the SHARED_LOCATION/ORCH_

Refer to Section A.3.3, "RUP Lite for OVM Utility" for more information about the
plug-ins.
2.4.4 Prepare to Register Database Schema Information
Perform the following steps to ensure that all database schemas are registered in the
credential store. Note that this step needs to be run only once, on the primordial host.
1.
Apply patches related to the credential store to FA_ORACLE_HOME.
a.
Unzip the contents of SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/Repository/installers/pre_
install/credstorepatches.zip and SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/Repository/installers/pre_
install/pcupatches.zip to a temporary location, referred to as temp_
location.
b.
Unzip and apply the following patches using opatch when upgrading from
Release 8 to Release 9. The location of opatch is FA_ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/.
temp_location/p17999633_Generic.zip
temp_location/p17999563_Generic.zip
An example command follows.
FA_ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch apply -oh FA_ORACLE_HOME -invPtrLoc
FA_ORACLE_HOME/oraInst.loc /scratch/DBschema/credstorepatches/17999563
2.
Ensure the files in the FA_ORACLE_HOME/lcm/util/bin directory have read, write,
and execute permissions.
3.
Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable before running any commands in the
following steps of this section.
You must run all commands in this section from
APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/applications/lcm/util/bin.
Note:
4.
Run the templateGen utility to create the csf_template.ini template file.
(UNIX)
./templateGen.sh -appbase APPLICATIONS_BASE
(Windows)
templateGen.cmd -appbase APPLICATIONS_BASE
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-17
Set Up Upgrade Orchestrator
For the -appbase argument, specify the complete directory path to the
APPLICATIONS_BASE directory.
The templateGen utility generates the following template files in the
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/admin/pcu directory:
■
standard_template.ini
■
csf_template.ini
■
validation_template.ini
■
system_user_template.ini
■
standard_template.properties
■
csf_template.properties
The command also generates the pcu_output.xml file in the same directory.
5.
Make a copy of csf_template.ini from the APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/admin/pcu
directory. In this example, the copy is named csf_plain.ini.
6.
Manually edit csf_plain.ini as follows:
■
■
Set the master_password property to the Master Orchestration Password you
selected in Section 2.4.2, "Select a Master Orchestration Password".
For each line that contains #text# or #password#, replace #text# or
#password# with the correct value for your environment. Note that this
password must be a minimum of 8 characters long and it must contain at least
one alphabetic character and at least one numeric or special character.
To prevent incorrect results, do not alter csf_plain.ini
beyond these changes.
Note:
7.
Create an encrypted version of csf_plain.ini and delete the clear-text input file.
This step requires an encryption tool, such as the lcmcrypt tool or the Linux gpg
tool, that takes an encrypted file and a passphrase and writes the decrypted
contents to the standard output. In the following example, using lcmcrypt, the
command reads the passphrase from the standard input and produces an
encrypted output file, csf_plain.ini.enc.
(UNIX)
echo password | ./lcmcrypt.sh -nonInteractive -encrypt -inputfile complete_
directory_path/csf_plain.ini
(Windows)
echo password | lcmcrypt.cmd -nonInteractive -encrypt -inputfile complete_
directory_path\csf_plain.ini
8.
Run iniGen.sh in non-interactive mode, which also requires a decryption tool, to
take an encrypted file and a passphrase and write the decrypted contents to the
standard output. The following example uses lcmcrypt:
(UNIX)
echo password | ./lcmcrypt.sh -nonInteractive -decrypt -inputfile complete_
directory_path/csf_plain.ini.enc | ./iniGen.sh -nonInteractive -templatefile
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/admin/pcu/csf_template.ini -outputfile APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/admin/pcu/csf_encrypted.ini -appbase APPLICATIONS_BASE
2-18 Upgrade Guide
Set Up Upgrade Orchestrator
(Windows)
echo password | lcmcrypt.cmd -nonInteractive -decrypt -inputfile complete_
directory_path\csf_plain.ini.enc | .\iniGen.cmd -nonInteractive -templatefile
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG\lcm\admin\pcu\csf_template.ini -outputfile APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG\lcm\admin\pcu\csf_encrypted.ini -appbase APPLICATIONS_BASE
The call to lcmcrypt reads the passphrase from the standard input and writes the
clear text version of csf_plain.ini.enc to the standard output, which is then
piped to the standard input of iniGen.sh.
iniGen.sh uses the value of the master_password property to encrypt all other
passwords in the generated input file. It also alters the value of the master_
password property back to master_password=ignore_me in the generated input
file.
9.
Update the CSF_ENCRYPTED_FILE property in ORCH_LOCATION/config/POD_
NAME/PRIMORDIAL.properties with the full directory path and file name for
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/admin/pcu/csf_encrypted.ini. For more information,
see Table B–2, " PRIMORDIAL.properties".
For more information about the utilities used in this process, see "Using PCU to
Change DB Schema Passwords" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
2.4.5 Prepare User Authentication Wallet File
If you use Oracle Beehive in a Windows environment to send email alerts from
Upgrade Orchestrator, then you must have a secured SMTP connection, which
requires user authentication data. Such data must not be stored in any property file,
and it cannot be pre-seeded in a credential store. However, you can use the mkstore
command utility to save this required user authentication information in a wallet file.
By default, this wallet file is located at ORCH_LOCATION/config/orchfwk/wallet.
To add user authentication data to the wallet file:
1.
At an operating system prompt on the machine that includes the shared location
ORCH_LOCATION/config, enter the following command, replacing sending_email_
[email protected]_company.com and sending_email_password with actual values for
the SMTP email account that will send the email notifications:
orchestration.cmd mkstore -key [email protected]_company.com -value
sending_email_password
If the key, (email address), already exists, this command overwrites the existing
password with new input. If the key does not exist in the wallet, it appends the
new key and value to the existing wallet.
Note: If you enter this command in a LINUX environment, use
single quotes or spaces to enclose any values that include special
characters such as the dollar sign ($).
2.
Set the following properties in the ORCH_LOCATION/config/POD_
NAME/pod.properties file, substituting appropriate values. To send emails to
multiple users, enter a comma-delimited list of email addresses in the EMAIL_TO_
RECIPIENT property.
[email protected]_company.com
EMAIL_DEFAULT_ENGINE=java
EMAIL_PROTOCOL=smtp
SMTP_AUTHORIZATION=true
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-19
Set Up Upgrade Orchestrator
SMTP_HOSTNAME=your_SMTP_host_name
SMTP_PORT_NUMBER=your_SMTP_port_number
SMTP_SOCKETFACTORY_CLASS=javax.net.ssl.SSLSocketFactory
[email protected]_company.com
SMTP_AUTH_PASSWORD=
Make sure that the SMTP_AUTH_PASSWORD line of the
pod.properties file does not specify a password. Instead, the
password value is automatically retrieved from the encrypted wallet
file.
Note:
2.4.6 Update Orchestrator Properties Files
Perform the following steps to update properties files. Note that if any property values
are updated while orchestration is running, the new values do not take effect until you
start a new orchestration session.
1.
Update the properties files which are located in the ORCH_LOCATION/config/POD_
NAME directory. If a property is not relevant for your environment, leave it empty,
but do not remove the property. For a detailed list of properties, see Appendix B,
"Upgrade Orchestrator Properties Files".
2.
Edit the SHARED_LOCATION/PatchConflictManager/PCM_Config.properties file to
set the IS_SAAS_ENV property to false.
2.4.7 Create an Override File for RUP Installer
This step is not applicable for Oracle VM environments.
Perform the following steps to create an override file that is referenced by the REL9_
RUPINSTALLER_UPGRADE_PARAM property during the upgrade.
1.
Create an override file, which can be located in SHARED_LOCATION. In this example,
the file name is override.properties. You can use a different name for the
override file in your environment.
2.
The override file contains the following properties.
■
■
The VIRTUAL_HOST_MODE property must be set to one of three values: IP,
NAME, or PORT. Perform the following steps to determine which property
value to use.
a.
Open WEBTIER_INSTANCE_
HOME/config/OHS/ohs1/moduleconf/FusionVirtualHost_fs.conf. An
example of WEBTIER_INSTANCE_HOME is APPTOP/instance/CommonDomain_
webtier.
b.
If the FusionVirtualHost_fs.conf file contains the string,
NameVirtualHost, use VIRTUAL_HOST_MODE=NAME in the override file.
c.
If more that one host exists in FusionVirtualHost_fs.conf for the
VirtualHost directive, use VIRTUAL_HOST_MODE=IP in the override file.
d.
Otherwise, use VIRTUAL_HOST_MODE=PORT.
The REFERENCE_ROLES_FILES property contains a list of the offerings that were
selected to be provisioned in the environment. You can obtain this list from the
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/fapatch/FUSION_env.properties file, using only the
offerings that also have an entry set to TRUE in this properties file.
The following examples are provided for each pillar:

■
Perform this step if Load Balancer (LBR) is enabled.
To create the wiring for the OHS configuration that is used by the Product
Management application in the SCM domain, create the following properties.
These properties must contain the values for the host and port of the custom
LBR external endpoints.
–
PROCUREMENTDOMAIN.SUPPLIERPORTALAPP.LBR_HOSTNAME
–
PROCUREMENTDOMAIN.SUPPLIERPORTALAPP.LBR_PORT
Note that the OHS.properties file contains two related properties that must be
populated if LBR is enabled: SUPPLIER_PORTAL_VIRTUAL_HOSTNAME and
SUPPLIER_PORTAL_VIRTUAL_PORT. For a scaled out scenario, multiple
properties exist, prefixed with the OHS_INSTANCE_ID:
3.
–
ohs1_ SUPPLIER_PORTAL_VIRTUAL_HOSTNAME
–
ohs1_ SUPPLIER_PORTAL_VIRTUAL_PORT
–
ohs2_ SUPPLIER_PORTAL_VIRTUAL_HOSTNAME
–
ohs2_ SUPPLIER_PORTAL_VIRTUAL_PORT
Update the REL9_RUPINSTALLER_UPGRADE_PARAM property in the pod.properties
file to add the following value:
-DrupOverride=SHARED_LOCATION/override.properties
2.4.8 Update the patchAutomation.properties File for the IDM Upgrade
Perform the steps in this section only if your environment meets the following criteria:
■
Runs on a Linux, Solaris, or AIX platform
■
IDM configuration is SINGLE, 3-NODE, or 4-NODE
■
Was freshly provisioned in Release 7 and upgraded to Release 8 OR was freshly
provisioned in Release 8
If your environment does not meet these requirements, this section is not applicable,
and the IDM upgrade is manual, for which the IDM_SETUP_TYPE property in the
IDM.properties file must be set to MANUAL.
Set the following properties in the SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/idmUpgrade/patchAutomation.properties file:
■
IDM_DB_SYS_PWD: Password for the sys user on the OIM database.

IDMLCM_HOME: Location of IDMLCM home. You can use the default if you
chose /u01/idmlcm/ while provisioning.
IDMUTILS_HOME: Location of IDMUTILS ORACLE_HOME. Ensure that you provide
the local path. Do not provide a network path, such as /net/host_name, because
this causes issues during the upgrade of this ORACLE_HOME.
2.4.9 Prepare Incremental Provisioning
Perform the steps in this section only if you if you meet one of the following
conditions. If none of the conditions are true, then you must skip the incremental
provisioning task.
■
■
Bare Metal environments: You used the Provisioning Wizard to select product
offerings and provision your environment on several hosts. The environment
contains any one of these product offerings: Product Management, Order
Orchestration, or Material Management and Logistics from Supply Chain
Management, or Procurement from Financials.
Oracle VM environments: You have an environment created from one of the
Oracle Fusion Applications Oracle VM templates not managed by Oracle Cloud
and the Oracle VM template that you used is GSI (available since Release 7) or
FSCMH (Financial, Supply Chain Management and Human Capital Management,
available prior to Release 6). If you used an HCM or CRM template, proceed to
Section 2.5, "Verify Your Environment Before Proceeding to Downtime".
For more information, see "Extending an Oracle Fusion Applications Environment
Using Incremental Provisioning During Upgrade" in the Oracle Fusion Applications
Installation Guide.
If you meet one of the preceding conditions, perform the following steps to prepare for
incremental provisioning.
1.
Set the PERFORM_INCREMENTAL_PROVISIONING property to "true" in the
pod.properties file. If you plan to run incremental provisioning but did not set
this property to "true", then Upgrade Orchestrator skips the pause point and you
will not have an opportunity to run incremental provisioning. For more
information about setting the property, see Section B.1, "pod.properties."
2.
If your environment does not already have any one of the Oracle Sales, Oracle
Marketing, or Oracle Financials offerings, and you plan to add at least one of them
through incremental provisioning, then confirm that you have the true-type fonts
installed at /usr/share/X11/fonts/TTF. If the true-type fonts are missing, install
them before proceeding to the next step.
2.5 Verify Your Environment Before Proceeding to Downtime
Perform the following steps to verify your environment before you proceed to
downtime steps:
■
Confirm Database Settings
■
Confirm JDeveloper Customizations Can Be Merged
■
Maintain Versions of Customized BI Publisher Reports
■
Remove Distributed Order Orchestration (DOO) Customizations
■
Verify the FUSION User Quota on FUSION_TS* Tablespaces
■
Validate Domain Directories
Preparing to Perform the Release 9 Upgrade 2-23
Verify Your Environment Before Proceeding to Downtime
■
Verify the Node Manager Configuration is Correct
■
Verify the SSL Configuration is Correct
■
Verify the Default Realm Name is myrealm
■

■
Ensure nfslock is Up and Running on IDM Nodes
■
Update the Node Manager Password in a Cloned Environment
■
Register Oracle Homes in Central Inventory (Windows Only)
■
Install the MKS Toolkit (Windows Only)
2.5.1 Confirm Database Settings
Refer to Technical Known Issues, Oracle Fusion Applications 11g Release 9 (11.1.9) to
verify that your database and Sql*Net tuning parameters are set properly to avoid
timeout errors during the upgrade.
2.5.2 Confirm JDeveloper Customizations Can Be Merged
If you performed JDeveloper customizations to a SOA composite and then you
deployed the composite to the SOA runtime, you must perform manual steps to merge
your customizations during the upgrade. To ensure that your customizations can be
merged successfully, review the recommendations in "Merging Runtime
Customizations from a Previously Deployed Revision into a New Revision" in the
Oracle Fusion Applications Extensibility Guide for Developers before you start Upgrade
Orchestrator.
You will merge your customizations after the SOA Preverification configuration
assistant fails during the upgrade. For more information, see Section 7.16.6, "Merge
SOA Composite JDeveloper Customizations During SOA Preverification".
2.5.3 Maintain Versions of Customized BI Publisher Reports
Ensure that you have your own versions of any customized BI Publisher reports. If an
upgrade includes an update to a catalog object that was delivered with an Oracle
Fusion application, the patch will overwrite any customizations applied to the original
report. For more information on customizing business intelligence, see the Creating
and Editing Analytics and Reports guides relevant to your products.
2.5.4 Remove Distributed Order Orchestration (DOO) Customizations
If you are using Extended Flexfields and you have customized the DOO SOA
composites for mapping between EBO and DOO SDO, you can remove these
customizations before you upgrade to Release 9 and use the new automap feature. For
more information see "Preserving SOA Composite JDeveloper Customizations Before
Applying a Patch" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Patching Guide. For more
information about the automap feature in Release 9 that allows you to avoid using
SOA composite customizations by setting up Oracle Fusion Distributed Order
Orchestration Extensible Flexfields, see Oracle Fusion Applications Order Orchestration
Implementation Guide.
2-24 Upgrade Guide
Verify Your Environment Before Proceeding to Downtime
2.5.5 Verify the FUSION User Quota on FUSION_TS* Tablespaces
The FUSION user must have an unlimited quota on all FUSION_TS* tablespaces. Run
the following query to verify that the FUSION user has an unlimited quota on all
FUSION_TS* tablespaces:
select tablespace_name, max_bytes from dba_ts_quotas where username = 'FUSION';
The FUSION user must have a value of -1 for max_bytes on all FUSION_TS*
tablespaces. If any tablespace does not have the correct value or does not have an
entry, you must grant the unlimited quota by running the following command:
alter user FUSION quota unlimited on tablespace_name;
2.5.6 Validate Domain Directories
Run the validatedomains script to confirm that all Administration Server domain
locations are detectable.
If you followed steps to scale out hosts, you may have added the Administration
Server of the scaled out host to a new machine. This section provides the steps to
temporarily add the Administration Server back to the originally provisioned machine
so that all domain directories can be found by Upgrade Orchestrator. During
post-upgrade steps, you add the Administration Server back to the machine that was
created during scaleout.
Whether are or not you have scaled out hosts, perform the following steps to run the
validation for domain locations and to temporarily update the machine for
Administration Servers, if needed.
1.
Unzip domainvalidate.zip from the SHARED_
LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0/Repository/installers/farup/Disk1/upgrade/validate
directory into any directory on the primordial host.

2.5.7 Verify the Node Manager Configuration is Correct
Perform the following steps on the admin-apps/PRIMORDIAL host and all Midtier hosts
to verify that the node manager configuration is correct.
1.
Review the config/config.xml file in each domain directory and check the
MACHINE_NAME entries. Ensure that for each machine entry, the node-manager child
element has its own name element that matches the name element of the machine.
Refer to the following example:
<machine>
<name>MACHINE_NAME</name>
<node-manager>
<name>MACHINE_NAME</name>
...
</node-manager>
2-26 Upgrade Guide
Verify Your Environment Before Proceeding to Downtime
</machine>
2.
If any of the node-manager elements are missing child name elements, then the
configuration must be fixed by using the offline WLST command as described in
the following steps:
a.
Run the WLST command to fix the configuration in each domain directory:
FMW_ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh
b.
Open the domain in offline mode:
readDomain('PATH_TO_DOMAIN')
c.
Run the following commands for each impacted machine:
cd('/Machine/MACHINE_NAME/NodeManager/MACHINE_NAME')
set('Name', 'MACHINE_NAME')
d.
Save the domain and exit WLST:
updateDomain()
closeDomain()
exit()
3.
Review the config.xml file for each of the impacted domain directories and
ensure that the name elements are now present.
2.5.8 Verify the SSL Configuration is Correct
Perform the following steps on the admin-apps/PRIMORDIAL host and all Midtier hosts
to verify that the node manager configuration is correct.
1.
Review the config/config.xml file in each domain directory and check the server
entries. Ensure that for each server entry, the SSL child element has its own name
element that matches the name element of the machine. Refer to the following
example:
<server>
<name>SERVER_NAME</name>
<ssl>
<name>SERVER_NAME</name>
...
</ssl>
</server>
2.
If any of the ssl elements are missing child name elements, then the configuration
must be fixed by using the offline WLST command as described in the following
steps:
a.
Run the WLST command to fix the configuration in each domain directory:
FMW_ORACLE_HOME/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh
b.
Open the domain in offline mode:
readDomain('PATH_TO-_DOMAIN')
c.
Run the following commands for each impacted machine:
cd('/Server/SERVER_NAME/SSL/SSL')

3.
Review the config.xml file for each of the impacted domain directories and
ensure that the name elements are now present.
2.5.9 Verify the Default Realm Name is myrealm
Upgrade Orchestrator expects the default realm name to be myrealm for the Common
Domain. Perform the following steps to verify that you have not changed this value to
any other name, because changing the name to anything other than myrealm causes
Upgrade Orchestrator to fail.
1.
Log in to the WLS Console for the Common Domain.
2.
Click Security Realms on the domain structure pane.
3.
A list of realms displays in the Summary of Security Realms window.
4.
Verify there is an entry for myrealm and that "true" displays in the Default Realm
column.
2.5.10 Verify the Version of /bin/bash on All Hosts (Unix Platforms)
Upgrade Orchestrator uses "Bash" as the default shell on Unix platforms. Ensure that
the /bin/bash shell version 3.2 or higher is installed on all hosts.
2.5.11 Ensure nfslock is Up and Running on IDM Nodes
The IDM upgrade uses flock to obtain shared locks and update the
patchAutomation.properties file. Ensure that the nfslock daemon is up and running
before beginning the upgrade. If the daemon is down, restart it as the root user, as
shown in the following example.
# service nfslock restart
2.5.12 Update the Node Manager Password in a Cloned Environment
When you upgrade a cloned instance, the upgrade process does not expect the Node
Manager password to be different from the keystore password. This difference in
passwords causes a failure during the upgrade which includes the following error text:
ERROR KEYSTORE WAS TAMPERED WITH, OR PASS...
To prevent this issue, change the Node Manager password to be the same as the
keystore password before you start the upgrade. Essentially, you change it back to the
original password that is used by the Node Manager in the source environment for
your clone. Use the Administration Console to change the values for the Node
Manager password and properties.
After the upgrade, you can change the password back to what it was in your cloned
environment after the clone was complete.
2.5.13 Register Oracle Homes in Central Inventory (Windows Only)
Oracle Provisioning records installation information about the following Oracle homes
separately from information about other products: Oracle Business Intelligence (Oracle
2-28 Upgrade Guide
Verify Your Environment Before Proceeding to Downtime
BI), Oracle Global Order Processing (GOP), Web Tier, and Web Tier Common Oracle
home. RUP Installer expects information about all products to be recorded in the same
place. For more information about home directories, see "Oracle Fusion Applications
Shared Directory Structure" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
The following steps describe how to manually register the all missing Oracle homes in
central inventory.
1.
Verify that the default Inventory Pointer file points to the central inventory on the
primordial host on which RUP Installer runs. The default Inventory Pointer is
located in the registry key, \\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\Oracle\inst_loc.
2.
Run attachHome from the BI Oracle home, for example, APPLICATIONS_
BASE\fusionapps\bi.
(Windows) BI_HOME\oui\bin\attachHome.bat -jreLoc JAVA_HOME_LOCATION
3.
Run attachHome from the GOP Oracle home, for example, APPLICATIONS_
BASE\fusionapps\gop.
(Windows) GOP_HOME\oui\bin\attachHome.bat -jreLoc JAVA_HOME_LOCATION
4.
Run attachHome from the Web Tier Oracle home, for example, APPLICATIONS_
BASE\webtier_mwhome\webtier.
(Windows) WEBTIER_HOME\oui\bin\attachHome.bat -jreLoc JAVA_HOME_LOCATION
5.
Run attachHome from the Web Tier Common Oracle home, for example,
APPLICATIONS_BASE\webtier_mwhome\oracle_common.
(Windows) WEBTIER_COMMON_HOME\oui\bin\attachHome.bat -jreLoc JAVA_HOME_LOCATION
6.
Run attachHome from the Web Tier Webgate Oracle home, for example,
APPLICATIONS_BASE\webtier_mwhome\webgate.
(Windows) WEBTIER_WEBGATE_HOME\oui\bin\attachHome.bat -jreLoc JAVA_HOME_
LOCATION
7.
Run attachHome from the Oracle Common Oracle home, for example,
APPLICATIONS_BASE\fusionapps\oracle_common.
(Windows) COMMON_HOME\oui\bin\attachHome.bat -jreLoc JAVA_HOME_LOCATION
8.
Register the dependency between the BI Oracle home and Oracle Common Oracle
home.
Run Oracle Universal Installer with the -updateHomeDeps option and pass a
dependency list. The syntax for the dependency list is:
HOME_DEPENDENCY_LIST={ORACLE_HOME:DEPENDENT_ORACLE_HOME}
Example for Business Intelligence:
(Windows) BI_HOME\oui\bin\setup.exe -updateHomeDeps "HOME_DEPENDENCY_LIST=
{APPLICATIONS_BASE\fusionapps\bi:APPLICATIONS_BASE\fusionapps\oracle_common}"
-jreLoc JAVA_HOME_LOCATION
9.
Register the dependency between Web Tier Oracle home and Web Tier Common
Oracle home.
(Windows) WEBTIER_HOME\oui\bin\setup.exe -updateHomeDeps "HOME_DEPENDENCY_LIST=
{APPLICATIONS_BASE\webtier_mwhome\webtier:APPLICATIONS_BASE\webtier_

10. Verify that the central inventory now contains the correct GOP, BI, and Web Tier
information. Open the inventory.xml file from the ContentsXML subdirectory in
your central inventory directory using a text editor. You can find your central
inventory directory by looking in the default Oracle Inventory pointer file
mentioned in Step 1. Verify that there are entries for GOP and for BI, and that the
BI entry lists the Oracle Common dependency you specified in Step 6. Do the same
for Web Tier information. Ensure that you do not modify inventory.xml in any
way, as this may corrupt your system.
Example entries in inventory.xml:

3-3
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS for Upgrade to Release 9
has not already been installed and configured. This causes non-interactive OPatch calls
to fail in some cases. To avoid this issue, Oracle recommends that you install OCM
prior to running RUP Lite for RDBMS. If you plan to use OCM, you should configure
it after you install it. If you do not plan to use OCM, you can either configure it in
disconnected mode or let RUP Lite for RDBMS configure it. If you install OCM and do
not configure it, RUP Lite for RDBMS will automatically configure it in disconnected
mode.
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS to automatically apply the mandatory Oracle Database
patches mentioned in the "Oracle Database" section of Technical Known Issues, Oracle
Fusion Application 11g Release 9 (11.1.9). This step applies Oracle Database patches that
reside in both the REPOSITORY_LOCATION and the 11.1.9.x.0_post_repo_patches
directories, which you downloaded in Section 2.3.5, "Download and Unzip Repository
and Patches for the Upgrade". Follow the steps in Section 3.3.1, "Run RUP Lite for
RDBMS".
If you use Oracle Exadata Database Machine, do not run RUP Lite for RDBMS.

chmod -R 755 DB_timestamp/db_server_bundle/bin/ruplite.sh
10. Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to the location of jdk6.
11. Update the following properties in the work_dir/DB_timestamp/db_server_
bundle/metadata/env.properties file. Example values are shown.
■
■
■
■
■
ORACLE_SID=Use an instance name that belongs to the fusionapps database.
ORACLE_HOME=Use the directory name that exactly matches the database
Oracle home directory on which patches must be applied, such as
/u01/db/11.2.0.4. Ensure that you do not include any trailing characters
after this directory path, such as a "/".
TNS_ADMIN=Use a valid location that contains SQL*Net configuration files
for the database.
LISTENER_NAME=Use a listener name.
PFILE=/u01/db/11.2.0.4/dbs/init.ora, for example. Update PFILE if your
database is started using pfile. You can retrieve this value by running the
following query:
select NAME, VALUE from v$parameter where NAME like '%file%';
■
DBSERVER_RESTART=true or false
To minimize downtime, you can use "false" for setdbparameters mode, and
"true" for apply mode.
3-6 Upgrade Guide
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS for Upgrade to Release 9
If DBSERVER_RESTART is set to "false", the database server, listener and other
related services must be manually stopped before running RUP Lite in apply
mode. Then after running RUP Lite in apply mode, you must run Step 21.
If the value for this property is set to "true", RUP Lite automatically stops the
listener and database before applying patches. In addition, RUP Lite
automatically performs the following actions after applying patches when
DBSERVER_RESTART=true:
a.
Start the database instance.
b.
Start the listener.
c.
Run catbundle.sql with arguments "psu apply" on non-Windows and
"winbundle apply" on Windows.
(UNIX)
$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/catbundle.sql psu apply
(Windows)
%ORACLE_HOME%\rdbms\admin\catbundle.sql winbundle apply
For a list of catbundle.sql errors that can be ignored, see Section 7.19.12,
"Ignorable Errors Reported by catbundle.sql".
d.
For each patch applied, run the post installation script, postinstall.sql,
if it exists in the unzipped patch directory.
e.
Run ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/catmetx.sql.
(UNIX)
$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/catmetx.sql
(Windows)
%ORACLE_HOME%\rdbms\admin\catmetx.sql

13. Stop all user applications.
14. Change directory to the following location:
DB_timestamp/db_server_bundle/bin
15. Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in validate mode. The database instance and listener
must be up.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh validate
(Windows) ruplite.bat validate
16. Review the log file, output/logs/host_name/ruplitevalidate.log, to confirm
whether the database parameters contain the values you set in Step 11 and the
values displayed in Table 3–1, " Recommended Values for Database Parameters",
and to review any errors that may have occurred.

If any of the parameters do not contain the recommended value, proceed to the
next step to run RUP Lite for RDBMS in setdbparameters mode. If all parameters
are correct, proceed to Step 19 to run RUP Lite for RDBMS in apply mode.
17. Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in setdbparameters mode. The database instance and
listener must be up.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh setdbparameters
(Windows) ruplite.bat setdbparameters
18. Review the log file, output/logs/host_name/ruplitesetdbparameters.log, to
confirm whether the database parameters contain the values displayed in
Table 3–1, " Recommended Values for Database Parameters", and to review any
errors that may have occurred.
19. Running RUP Lite for RDBMS in apply mode starts and stops only the Fusion
Applications database listener and the database server. You must stop any other
applications or processes that are running from the Oracle Fusion Applications
home directory, except the OPSS Security Store, before you run RUP Lite for
RDBMS. For more information, see "Starting and Stopping an Oracle Fusion
Applications Environment" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
Also confirm that the BI presentation servers are shut down.
You can set the parameter DBSERVER_RESTART (available in
metadata/env.properties) to "false" if you want to manually shut down the
database, stop the listener before patching, and start it up after applying the
patches. For Windows, if you set DBSERVER_RESTART to "false", follow the steps in
Section 3.3.3, "Stop Services on Windows Before Running RUP Lite For RDBMS".
Note: To avoid an issue with active files while patching, ensure that
no applications or processes are running from the ORACLE_HOME that is
referenced in metadata/env.properties. If DBSERVER_RESTART=true,
you can ignore the database instance and listener processes because
RUP Lite brings them down.
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in apply mode.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh
(Windows) ruplite.bat
20. Review the following log files located under the output/logs/host_name
directory if any errors occurred:
ruplitedb.log
tp_property_editor_timestamp.log
db_apply_repository_patches_timestamp.log
db_validate_repository_patches_timestamp.log
repository_patch_validate_results_timestamp.xml
post_db_restart_actions_timestamp.log
If RUP Lite for RDBMS fails, resolve the issue reported in the log file. When you
restart a failed session, RUP Lite for RDBMS ignores the successful actions, starts
with the failed action, and proceeds from that point.
The post_db_restart_actions_timestamp.log file includes the output from
catbundle.sql and catmetx.sql. For a list of catbundle.sql errors that can be
ignored, see Section 7.19.12, "Ignorable Errors Reported by catbundle.sql".
21. If you set DBSERVER_RESTART to "false", perform the following steps:
3-8 Upgrade Guide

Start the database instance.
b.
Start the listener.
c.
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in applypostchanges mode.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh applypostchanges
(Windows) ruplite.bat applypostchanges
d.
Review the following log files, located under the output/logs/host_name
directory, if any errors occurred:
ruplitedbapplypostchanges.log
post_db_restart_actions_timestamp.log
These log files are generated by running ruplite in applypostchanges mode.
The post_db_restart_actions_timestamp.log file includes the output from
catbundle.sql and catmetx.sql. For a list of catbundle.sql errors that can
be ignored, see Section 7.19.12, "Ignorable Errors Reported by catbundle.sql".
22. You must manually execute any manual steps that are documented in the
README.txt file of the patches you applied with RUP Lite for RDBMS. RUP Lite
for RDBMS executes postinstall.sql if it is mentioned as a manual step. All
other steps have to be run manually.
23. Proceed to Section 3.3.4, "Run Additional Post Database Start Scripts for Patches
for Release 9".
3.3.2 Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in a RAC Database
Perform the following steps to run RUP Lite for RDBMS in a RAC database. You must
run RUP Lite for RDBMS on all available file systems. This may involve multiple hosts
and nodes. Note that a single Oracle home can be shared by multiple nodes, and in
this case, running RUP Lite on a single node of such a group is sufficient.
1.
Follow Steps 1 through 10 in Section 3.3.1, "Run RUP Lite for RDBMS".
2.
Stop all user applications that use the Oracle home directory being patched.
3.
Update the following properties in the work_dir/DB_timestamp/db_server_
bundle/metadata/env.properties file. Example values are shown.
■
■
■
ORACLE_HOME=Use the directory name that exactly matches the database
Oracle home directory on which patches must be applied, such as
/u01/db/11.2.0.4. Ensure that you do not include any trailing characters
after this directory path, such as a "/".
ORACLE_SID=Use an instance name that belongs to the fusionapps database
and is run against the Oracle home set in the previous property.
TNS_ADMIN=Use a valid tns_admin location, which is typically located
under the grid infra and contains listener.ora and sqlnet.ora files.
■
LISTENER_NAME=Use a listener name.
■
PFILE=/u01/db/11.2.0.4/dbs/init.ora, for example.
Update PFILE if your database is started using pfile.
■
DBSERVER_RESTART=false
Note that the value of DBSERVER_RESTART must be "false".
4.
Verify that the java version is 1.6 or above by using the following command:
Updating the Oracle Fusion Applications and Oracle Identity Management Databases
3-9
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS for Upgrade to Release 9
(UNIX)
$JAVA_HOME/bin/java -version
(Windows)
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -version
5.
Change directory to the following location:
DB_timestamp/db_server_bundle/bin
6.
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in validate mode. The database instance and listener
must be up.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh validate
(Windows) ruplite.bat validate
7.
Review the log file, output/logs/host_name/ruplitevalidate.log, to confirm
whether the database parameters contain the values you set in Step 3 and the
values displayed in Table 3–1, " Recommended Values for Database Parameters",
and to review any errors that may have occurred.
If any of the parameters do not contain the recommended value, proceed to the
next step to run RUP Lite for RDBMS in setdbparameters mode. If all parameters
are correct, proceed to Step 10 to run RUP Lite for RDBMS in apply mode.
8.
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in setdbparameters mode. The database instance and
listener must be up.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh setdbparameters
(Windows) ruplite.bat setdbparameters
9.
Review the log file, output/logs/host_name/ruplitesetdbparameters.log, to
confirm whether the database parameters contain the values displayed in
Table 3–1, " Recommended Values for Database Parameters", and to review any
errors that may have occurred.
10. Shut down all Oracle RAC databases on all nodes in the cluster, even those that are
sharing the same host. Database instances that are running could cause issues that
prevent patches from applying successfully or you could receive errors because
the patches update files that are in use.
To shut down an Oracle RAC database, enter the following command in a
command window, where CRS_home is the location of the Grid home directory and
sales is the name of the database in the following example:
(UNIX)
CRS_home/bin/srvctl stop database -d sales
(Windows)
CRS_home\bin\srvctl stop database -d sales
11. Stop the listener that is running from all Oracle homes in the cluster, using the
following command:
(UNIX)
CRS_home/bin/srvctl stop listener [-l listener_name]
(Windows)
CRS_home\bin\srvctl stop listener [-l listener_name]
3-10 Upgrade Guide
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS for Upgrade to Release 9
12. To avoid an issue with active files while patching, ensure that no applications or
processes are running from the ORACLE_HOME that is referenced in
metadata/env.properties.
13. Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in apply mode.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh
(Windows) ruplite.bat
14. Review the following log files located under the output/logs/host_name
directory if any errors occurred:
ruplitedb.log
tp_property_editor_timestamp.log
db_apply_repository_patches_timestamp.log
db_validate_repository_patches_timestamp.log
repository_patch_validate_results_timestamp.xml
If RUP Lite for RDBMS fails, resolve the issue reported in the log files. When you
restart a failed session, RUP Lite for RDBMS ignores the successful actions, starts
with the failed action, and proceeds from that point.
15. RAC databases often share a single ORACLE_HOME for all RAC instances. If you
have this configuration, continue to the next step.
If you do not have this configuration, you must update the files in the other
ORACLE_HOMEs for your RAC database. To update the other ORACLE_HOMEs,
repeat Steps 4 through 8 in Section 3.3.1, "Run RUP Lite for RDBMS" for RAC
instances with non-shared ORACLE_HOMEs. Then repeat Steps 3 through 15 in
this section for all RAC instances. Note that this may involve multiple hosts and
nodes.
16. Start the database.
17. Run RUP Lite for RDBMS in applypostchanges mode.
(UNIX) ruplite.sh applypostchanges
(Windows) ruplite.bat applypostchanges
18. Review the following log files, located under the output/logs/host_name
directory, if any errors occurred:
ruplitedbapplypostchanges.log
post_db_restart_actions_timestamp.log
These log files are generated by running ruplite in applypostchanges mode. The
post_db_restart_actions_timestamp.log file includes the output from
catbundle.sql and catmetx.sql. For a list of catbundle.sql errors that can be
ignored, see Section 7.19.12, "Ignorable Errors Reported by catbundle.sql".
19. You must manually execute any manual steps that are documented in the
README.txt file of the patches you applied with RUP Lite for RDBMS. RUP Lite
for RDBMS executes postinstall.sql if it is mentioned as a manual step. All
other steps have to be done manually.
If there is more than one ORACLE_HOME in the RAC database, you do not need
to run SQL scripts again when patching the 2nd through the nth ORACLE_
HOME, but you do need to perform any manual steps that update ORACLE_
HOME.
20. Start the listener from all Oracle homes in the cluster. For Windows, start the
services described Section 3.3.3, "Stop Services on Windows Before Running RUP
Updating the Oracle Fusion Applications and Oracle Identity Management Databases 3-11
Run RUP Lite for RDBMS for Upgrade to Release 9
Lite For RDBMS".
21. Proceed to Section 3.3.4, "Run Additional Post Database Start Scripts for Patches
for Release 9".
3.3.3 Stop Services on Windows Before Running RUP Lite For RDBMS
For a Windows platform, the following services should be stopped before you run
RUP Lite for RDBMS:
You do not shut down services if DBSERVER_RESTART=true in
env.properties, which is the default case. You must shut down
services only if you set DBSERVER_RESTART=false in env.properties.
Note:
■
OracleOraDb11g_home1TNSListenerLISTENER_<SID>
■
OracleOraDb11g_home1ClrAgent

■
Distributed Transaction Coordinator
■
Oracle <SID> VSS Writer Service
If RUP Lite for RDBMS fails to stop or start a service, you can manually manage each
service from the Control Panel. Select Administrative Tools, then Services. Right click
on each service and choose the Stop or Start option.
3.3.4 Run Additional Post Database Start Scripts for Patches for Release 9
RUP Lite for RDBMS consolidates the README.txt files for all applied patches into
one consolidated README.txt file, which is located in the OUI_Component_readme.txt
directory. You must manually execute any manual steps that are documented in the
consolidated README.txt file. RUP Lite for RDBMS executes postinstall.sql if it is
mentioned as a manual step. All other steps have to be performed manually on the DB
host by any user that has system privileges. Perform these steps on only one of the
nodes in the case of a RAC setup.
Database patches can be found at the following locations:

This chapter describes the steps to ensure system reliability by running Pre-downtime
checks.
[5]
This chapter includes the following topics:
■
Run the Health Checker Utility
■
Run the Prevalidation Check on IDM Hosts
4.1 Run the Health Checker Utility
Health Checker is a command line utility that performs a set of validation checks
against an Oracle Fusion Applications environment to ensure that the environment
meets recommended standards. When Health Checker runs, it uses a specific manifest
file which performs the appropriate checks. Health Checker provides a list of
corrective actions for any checks that fail validation. The suggested corrective actions
must be run manually to fix the issue before proceeding with the upgrade.
This section contains the following topics:
■
Pre-Downtime Health Checker Manifests
■
Running Health Checker on the Primordial Host
■
Running Health Checker on the Midtier Host
■
Running Health Checker on the OHS Host
4.1.1 Pre-Downtime Health Checker Manifests
When you run Health Checker during pre-downtime, you run the following manifests.
■
■
■
GeneralSystemHealthChecks.xml: Run on the Primordial, Midtier, OHS, and
Database hosts
PreDowntimeUpgradeReadinessHealthChecks.xml: Run on the Primordial, Midtier,
OHS, and Database hosts
DataQualityChecks.xml: Run on the primordial host only
For more information about the checks performed by Health Checker, see
Section A.3.2.2, "Health Checker Plug-ins."
4.1.2 Running Health Checker on the Primordial Host
Perform the following steps to run Health Checker on the primordial host.

patches, SHARED_LOCATION/11.1.9.x.0_post_repo_patches, in
Section 2.3.5.3, "Download and Unzip Mandatory Post-Release 9 Patches".
Note that the following environment variables are set in the primordial host
but the values come from the OHS host. For example, /u01/mw_home/Oracle_
WT1/instances/CommonDomain_webtier does not exist on the primordial host
and this path is a path on the OHS host. However, Health Checker requires
this environment variable on the primordial host.
–
OHS_INSTANCE_ID: The OHS instance id being upgraded, for example,
ohs1.
–
WT_CONFIG_HOME: The Web Tier instance configuration home, for example,
/u01/mw_home/Oracle_WT1/instance/CommonDomain_webtier.
–
OHS_HOST_NAME: The OHS host name, for example, ohs_
host.my.company.com.
HC_OVERRIDE_FILES: The location of any Health Checker overrides that you
may have created, as described in Section A.3.2.3.1, "Create Override Files."
The default location is SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION/healthchecker/POD_NAME.
You can skip this environment variable if you do not have Health Checker
overrides.
RUP_OVERRIDE: The location of the override file for RUP Installer, that you
may have created in Section 2.4.7, "Create an Override File for RUP Installer."
You can skip this environment variable if you do not have an override file for

If any health checks fail, refer to the Health Checker log files and reports to find
the corrective actions to resolve the issue. The suggested corrective actions must be
run manually to fix the issue before proceeding with the upgrade. Then rerun
Health Checker to ensure all checks are successful. You can optionally use the
-checkpoint true option when you restart Health Checker, so that only the failed
plug-ins or the plug-ins that did not run are executed.
If the failure is a known issue and you want to exclude the check, refer to
Section A.3.2.3, "Override Health Checks."
The following table provides the location of log files and reports on the primordial
host. Note that Health Checker log directories are created with reference to version

4.1.4 Running Health Checker on the OHS Host
Perform the following steps to run Health Checker on the OHS host.
1.
Confirm that ORCH_LOCATION is set up correctly and is ready for running Health
Checker on the OHS host by verifying that the ORCH_LOCATION/webtier_mwhome
directory exists. If this directory does not exist, run orchsetup.py as described in
Section 2.4.1, "Set Up Upgrade Orchestrator on a Shared Location".
2.
Create the ORCH_LOCATION/config/POD_NAME/OHS/HOST_NAME/env.properties file
for each OHS host and add the properties shown in the following example.
Populate the WT_MW_HOME, WT_CONFIG_HOME, and OHS_INSTANCE_ID properties with
values corresponding to the environments described in the example.
# WT_MW_HOME - Points to the Middleware home location where the webtier,

# Example: /oracle/work/MW_HOME
WT_MW_HOME=/u01/APPLTOP/webtier_mwhome
# WT_CONFIG_HOME - Points to the specific Web Tier (OHS) instance on which the
RUP Lite utility will be applied.
# Example: /oracle/work/MW_HOME/Oracle_WT1/instances/instance1/
WT_CONFIG_HOME=/u01/mw_home/Oracle_WT1/instance/CommonDomain_webtier
# OHS_INSTANCE_ID - The name of the Web Tier (OHS) instance that is going to be
upgraded using the RUP Lite utility.
# Note that the variable is not a path, but simply a string name of the
instance in question.
# Example: ohs1
OHS_INSTANCE_ID=ohs1
# PATCHBASE_HOME - The location of the post-repo patches for
webtier/webgate/oracle_common.
# Note that this variable is only consumed by provisioning blackbox API.
# Example: /scratch/ohs_manual_download_patches
PATCHBASE_HOME=/scratch/ohs_manual_download_patches
# SAAS_ENV - Specifies if the environment is a SAAS environment or not.

5.1.16 Resume Upgrade Orchestrator
Resume orchestration on all host types, including the respective scaled out hosts, using
the commands in Section 5.1.1, "Run Upgrade Orchestrator During Downtime", Steps
1 through 4.
If you do not plan to run incremental provisioning and you have only US English
installed, proceed to Section 5.1.24, "Upgrade Orchestrator Completes Successfully."
If you do not plan to run incremental provisioning and you have previously installed
additional languages, Upgrade Orchestration runs the tasks in Table 5–7, " Tasks Run
For the Language Pack Upgrade" and you can proceed to Section 5.1.24, "Upgrade
Orchestrator Completes Successfully."
If the PERFORM_INCREMENTAL_PROVISIONING property is set to "true", Upgrade
Orchestrator runs the InstallIpBinary task on the primordial host, to install binaries
for incremental provisioning. Proceed to Section 5.1.17, "Pause Point 6 - Create the
Incremental Provisioning Response File."
5.1.17 Pause Point 6 - Create the Incremental Provisioning Response File
Orchestration pauses if you meet one of the conditions described in Section 2.4.9,
"Prepare Incremental Provisioning", so you can create a response file for running
incremental provisioning. Perform the steps in Section 5.2.5, "Create Response Files for
Manual Incremental Provisioning".
5.1.18 Update Status to Success
After you successfully create the response file for manual incremental provisioning,
update the task status to "success" on the primordial host:
Upgrading to Oracle Fusion Applications Release 9 5-11

5.1.19 Resume Upgrade Orchestrator
Resume orchestration on the primordial host, using the commands in Section 5.1.1,
"Run Upgrade Orchestrator During Downtime", Step 1.
5.1.20 Pause Point 7 - Perform Incremental Provisioning
Orchestration pauses if you meet one of the conditions described in Section 2.4.9,
"Prepare Incremental Provisioning", so you can run incremental provisioning.
To perform incremental provisioning, follow the steps in Section 5.2.6, "Perform
Incremental Provisioning." If you have a scaled-out, secondary Oracle Fusion
Applications OHS instance, incremental provisioning does not update the secondary
OHS. In this case, you must first perform the additional steps in "Performing Post
Incremental Provisioning Tasks" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Installation Guide,
before proceeding to the next step. If you only have a single Oracle Fusion
Applications OHS instance, do not perform the post incremental provisioning tasks.
5.1.21 Update Status to Success
After you successfully perform manual incremental provisioning, update the task
status to "success" on the primordial, OHS and Midtier hosts:
1.

the respective scaled out hosts, using the commands in Section 5.1.1, "Run Upgrade
Orchestrator During Downtime", Steps 1 through 4.
Upgrade Orchestrator runs the tasks in the following table. Note that the
LanguagePackInstall task runs both the General System and Pre-Language Pack
Readiness Health Checks and this runs for each installed language. The
PostLangPackChecks task runs both the General System and Post-Language Pack
Health Checks.
If you have set the SKIP_UPGRADE_FOR_LANGUAGE option to skip languages, the upgrade
for those languages is not performed as part of orchestration. In this case, proceed to
Section 5.1.24, "Upgrade Orchestrator Completes Successfully" at this time and you
must manually upgrade your installed languages after Upgrade Orchestrator
completes successfully. For more information, see "Performing Optional Language

5.2.1 Back Up Oracle Fusion Applications
Back up your entire Oracle Fusion Applications environment by following the steps
for performing a full offline backup in "Backing Up and Recovering Oracle Fusion
Applications" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide. Include the
following components in your backup:
■
Back Up Databases
■
Back Up Upgrade Orchestrator Directories
■
Back Up the OHS Host and /etc/hosts
■
Back Up the Central Inventory
For additional back up steps that are specific to Windows, refer to Section 5.2.2, "Back
Up Steps for Windows Platforms".
5-14 Upgrade Guide
Pause Point Steps
5.2.1.1 Back Up Databases
Database upgrade and patching is a prerequisite to the Oracle Fusion Applications
Upgrade. You must backup your Oracle Fusion Applications database and Oracle
Identity Management database before and after applying all prerequisite patches and
before starting the Oracle Fusion Applications upgrade. For more information, see
"Backing Up and Recovering Oracle Fusion Applications" in the Oracle Fusion
Applications Administrator's Guide. Turn on Oracle Flashback Database as a best practice
before taking a backup of the Oracle Fusion Applications database.
5.2.1.2 Back Up Upgrade Orchestrator Directories
Upgrade Orchestrator writes to work areas specified by properties in the
pod.properties file. Ensure that you back up the work directories during all Oracle
Fusion Applications backup pause points. During any restore of your environment,
you must restore the orchestration work directories to the same backup point.
Backup directories are specified by the following properties in the pod.properties
file:
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION
■
SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION
If these directories are shared among multiple environments, the backups of these
directories must be specific to the environment (POD_NAME). The restore should also be
specific to that environment (POD_NAME), as shown in the following examples:
■
■
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION/POD_NAME
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION /ARCHIVE/POD_
NAME
SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION/POD_NAME
Note: When restoring the Oracle Fusion Applications environment
from a backup, you must restore the orchestration directories if you
want to continue using orchestration, starting from the backup pause
points in the orchestration flow.
5.2.1.3 Back Up the OHS Host and /etc/hosts
On the OHS host, back up /u01/APPLTOP and /u02/instance.
Also back up the /etc/hosts file.
5.2.1.4 Back Up the Central Inventory
Upgrade Orchestrator upgrades and applies Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle
Fusion Applications patches to your Oracle Fusion Applications environment. As a
best practice, back up your central inventory, along with other Oracle homes, before
the upgrade. On the primordial host, the location of the central inventory can be
obtained by looking at the inventory pointer file (oraInst.loc on Linux), located in
FA_ORACLE_HOME.
After your backups are complete, and if you are performing the steps to upgrade to
Release 9, proceed to Section 5.1.6, "Update Status to Success" to continue the upgrade.
If you are performing the steps to upgrade your installed languages, proceed to
Section 5.1.15, "Update Status to Success."
Upgrading to Oracle Fusion Applications Release 9 5-15
Pause Point Steps
5.2.2 Back Up Steps for Windows Platforms
Back up the Oracle Fusion Applications environment, including APPLICATIONS_BASE,
inventory, registry entries, Oracle Identity Management, the database and the System
environment PATH variable of the Oracle Fusion Applications host machine.
1.
APPLICATIONS_BASE contains many files whose path is more than 256 characters.
The Microsoft Windows Copy function is limited to copying only those files with a
path of less than 256 characters. Therefore, many files fail to copy.
Use Robust File Copy (Robocopy), which is available as part of the Windows
Resource Kit, to copy APPLICATIONS_BASE. Use the following command:
robocopy <source> <destination> /MIR > <file>

APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/RUP:
PostRUPInstallerReport_timestamp.html
PostRUPInstallerReport_timestamp.log
PostRUPInstallerReport_timestamp.xml
For information about resolving errors, see Chapter 7, "Monitoring and
Troubleshooting the Upgrade".
6.3 Review the Orchestrator Upgrade Report
Review the Oracle Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade Report to check for any
errors or warnings that require attention, to confirm whether the upgrade completed
successfully. If there were previous failures during the upgrade, this report would
have been generated each time there was a failure. The report name is
FAOrchestrationUpgradeReport_release_hosttype_hostname_timestamp.html. The
Upgrade Orchestrator report is generated for each pod and its location is defined in
the mandatory ORCH_REPORT_LOCATION property in the pod.properties file. Previous
reports are archived and available for troubleshooting purposes. For more
information, see Section A.1.3, "Oracle Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade
Report".
6.4 Review Policy Store (JAZN) Analysis Reports
Review the JAZN Analysis reports for potential conflicts and deletions that are not
patched automatically during the upgrade. The reports are located in the following
directory:
APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/admin/11.1.9.x.0/fapatch/JAZN/stripe/delta/report.txt
The stripe is crm, fscm, hcm, obi, soa, ucm, bpm, or b2b.
Review the Modification section of the report to see the roles that were not updated
during the upgrade. For each conflict that displays in this report, you must evaluate
and manually patch the role by using Oracle Authorization Policy Manager (APM).
For more information, see "Handling Policies During Patching and Upgrades" in the
Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
6-2 Upgrade Guide
Configure Wiring Between Supplier Portal and Product Management
The following example shows a typical Application Role conflict that has been
modified by both the patch and production, therefore it is not applied during the
upgrade.

FA_ORACLE_HOME/stripe/deploy/system-jazn-data.xml
■
Location of patch files for the obi, soa, ucm, bpm, or b2b stripes:
FA_ORACLE_HOME/com/acr/security/jazn/bip_jazn-data.xml
6.5 Reload Custom Templates in BI Publisher
Perform this step if you have customized BI Publisher reports.
Reload custom templates for BI Publisher reports on Oracle-delivered BI Publisher
reports by following the steps in "Retaining customized templates while upgrading or
applying patches (Doc ID 1909819.1)" from My Oracle Support. If you plan to create
payments with a format created in Release 8 or earlier and attached with a predefined
BI Publisher template name, refer to "Custom formats created by attaching seeded BI
Publisher template in release 8 or earlier will not generate the correct payment file in
release 9 (Doc ID 1910233.1)".
6.6 Configure Wiring Between Supplier Portal and Product Management
This step is mandatory if your environment contains the Product Management
offering. The SCM Product Information Management application depends on the
Supplier Portal application provisioned in the PRC domain. If the SCM Product
Management is present in your environment, in other words, you selected the Product
Management offering when you created the environment, you must configure the
Oracle Http Server (OHS) virtual host file for the Supplier Portal application.
To verify if the Product Management offering is provisioned in your environment, log
in to Fusion Applications, select Tools > Setup and Maintenance from the Navigator
menu.Then select Implementations, Configure Offerings from the Tasks menu. Locate
the row containing the Product Management offering. If the Provisioned column
displays 'Yes', then the Product Management offering is provisioned in the
environment.
Perform the following steps on each OHS host, including the OHS host in the DMZ:
1.
Stop the OHS Server.
2.
In the WT_CONFIG_HOME/config/OHS/OHS_INSTANCE_ID/moduleconf directory,

6.11 Resolve Conflicts That Occurred During Oracle BI Metadata Updates
Upgrade Orchestrator updates the applications policies for Oracle Business
Intelligence during the Apply Offline BI Metadata and Configuration Updates
configuration assistant. When Upgrade Orchestrator runs this configuration assistant,
it updates the Oracle BI Applications metadata in the Oracle BI repository and the
Oracle BI Presentation Catalog for Oracle Fusion Transactional Business Intelligence
and Oracle Business Intelligence Applications.
Note: This section refers to different Oracle BI directory paths. The BI
Oracle home contains the binary and library files necessary for Oracle
BI. BI_ORACLE_HOME represents the BI Oracle home in path names.
This section contains the following topics:
■
Resolve Conflicts in the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog
■
Resolve Conflicts in the Oracle Business Intelligence Policy Store
6.11.1 Resolve Conflicts in the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog
When you run Upgrade Orchestrator, the Oracle BI Metadata Update Tool overwrites
all customizations to catalog objects in the Presentation Catalog with the new
Oracle-supplied content and logs conflicts in a conflict report.
After Upgrade Orchestrator completes, you must review the conflict report and decide
whether you want to retain the new content or re-apply your customizations using a
manual process.
6-6 Upgrade Guide
Resolve Conflicts That Occurred During Oracle BI Metadata Updates
Points to Consider
■
The folders, /shared/backup/shared and /shared/backup/system, are created in
the updated Presentation Catalog during the Upgrade Orchestrator and the
Metadata Update Tool process. You access these folders through the Folders pane
of the Catalog page in the Oracle BI Enterprise Edition user interface, as described
in the following procedure.
Note: The /shared/backup folder should not exist before Upgrade Orchestrator
runs, because the updated Presentation Catalog file will not be copied to this
folder if it already exists.
As a precaution, to ensure the /shared/backup folder does not exist before
Upgrade Orchestrator runs, you can optionally create an environment variable
called webcat.force.restore, which will overwrite the contents of an existing
/shared/backup folder. This environment variable must be set in the shell prompt
from where the orchestrator is going to be invoked, using the command, setenv
webcat.force.restore true.
■
Conflicts that arise during Upgrade Orchestrator and the Metadata Update Tool
process are stored in the /shared/backup/shared folder in the updated
Presentation Catalog. Object references that have conflicts are also stored in
/shared/backup/shared.
To resolve conflicts in the Presentation Catalog:
1.
Locate the conflict report named update-conflict-report.txt, which is stored in
the folder BI_SHARED_DIR/.biapps_patch_storage/update/Run_ID.
2.
Sign in to Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (Oracle BI EE).
3.
Click Catalog in the global header.
4.
In the Folders pane, navigate to Shared Folders, backup, and then shared folder.
5.
Open an object that has a conflict. This object depicts the state of the object before
Upgrade Orchestrator and the Metadata Update Tool were run.
6.
Open a second instance of Oracle BI EE and the Presentation Catalog.
7.
Navigate to the Shared Folders folder.
8.
Open the same object you opened in step 5. This object depicts the state of the
object after Upgrade Orchestrator and the Metadata Update Tool were run (and
after the metadata updates were applied).
9.
Compare the two objects and decide whether you want to retain the
Oracle-supplied updated content or re-apply your customization from the
previous version of the Presentation Catalog.
10. To re-apply your customization to an updated object, manually edit the object.
11. Repeat steps 5 through 10 for all objects that have conflicts.
6.11.2 Resolve Conflicts in the Oracle Business Intelligence Policy Store
When you run Upgrade Orchestrator, the Oracle BI Metadata Update Tool performs a
safe upgrade on the Oracle Business Intelligence policy store, which means it updates
only the metadata content that does not conflict with your customizations. Updated
content that conflicts with your customizations is not applied. Conflicts are listed in
the Oracle BI Metadata Tool update report, located at BI_SHARED_DIR/.biapps_patch_
storage/update/Timestamp/policystore_delta/report.txt.
Running Post-Upgrade Tasks 6-7
Perform Upgrade Steps for Oracle BI Applications
This procedure provides instructions for overriding the customizations of the previous
Oracle Business Intelligence policy store by applying the Oracle-supplied updated
content, using Oracle Authorization Policy Manager.
Note: You do not need to back up your existing policy store file, because the Metadata
Update Tool process does not overwrite your customizations.
To resolve conflicts in the policy store:
1.
Log in to the Authorization Policy Manager Administration Console.
2.
Navigate to the Home tab of the Policy Upgrade Management page.
3.
Click Patch Application in the upper-left corner of the page to display the Patch
Application dialog.
4.
Select the appropriate application from the Application list.
5.
In the Patch File field, specify the new patch file name and location, for example,
BI_ORACLE_HOME/bifoundation/admin/provisioning/biapps-policystore.xml.
6.
In the Baseline field, specify the previous policy store that was backed up by the
Oracle BI Metadata Update Tool, for example, BI_ORACLE_HOME/.biapps_patch_
storage_UPGRADE_from_VERSION/OH_
BACKUP/bifoundation/admin/provisioning/biapps-policystore.xml.
7.
Navigate to the Patch Details tab to view the policy store conflicts.

7.1 General Troubleshooting for Upgrade Orchestrator Failure
When Upgrade Orchestrator exits with a failure on any upgrade task, it sends an email
to the recipients specified in the EMAIL_TO_RECIPIENT and EMAIL_CC_RECIPIENT
properties in the pod.properties file. This email contains the Oracle Fusion
Applications Orchestrator Upgrade Report as an attachment. The report name is
FAOrchestrationUpgradeReport_release_hosttype_hostname_timestamp.html. This
report specifies the location to the Fusion Applications Orchestration Action Summary
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-1
Log Locations
report, which provides information about the failure, corrective action, and relevant
log files. The orchestration log file is a good point to start for any troubleshooting, as it
captures logs from different upgrade tasks as well as console messages. The
orchestration log file is located in APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/orchestration/host_name-rel9_hosttype_
timestamp.log.
The following figure depicts the high level flow for troubleshooting Upgrade
Orchestrator failures.
Figure 7–1 Troubleshooting Flow
Previous reports are archived whenever a new report is generated, as described in
Section 7.6.3, "Unable to Find the Orchestrator Upgrade Report After Failure". For
more information about the report, see Section A.1.3, "Oracle Fusion Applications
Orchestrator Upgrade Report".
Note that if an orchestration session exits due to an error, its status is "Failed". If an
orchestration session exits as a result of the exitOrchestration command, its status is
"Terminated".
7.2 Log Locations
The following types of log files are described in this section:
■
Upgrade Orchestrator Log File Directories
■
RUP Installer Log File Directories
7.2.1 Upgrade Orchestrator Log File Directories
The following table contains a list of log directories for Upgrade Orchestrator
activities. Note that the directory name, 11.1.9.x.0, is used to represent the
appropriate version of Release 9, to which version you are upgrading. For IDM and
OHS log files, the location can be configured using the LOG_LOCATION property, in the
IDM.properties and OHS.properties files. For more information, see Section 2.4.6,
"Update Orchestrator Properties Files".

7.3 Monitoring Upgrade Orchestration Progress
You can monitor the progress of the upgrade by reviewing the console output, by
running the getStatus or the report command. You can also receive email
notifications.
7.3.1 Monitoring the Upgrade Using the getStatus Command
You can run the getStatus command on any host, to get the upgrade status for that
host or for other hosts. The command follows:
(Unix)
cd ORCH_LOCATION/bin
./orchestration.sh getStatus -pod POD_NAME -hosttype host_type -hostname host_name
-release release_version [-phase phase_name] [-taskid task_id] [-taskstatus task_
status]
(Windows)
cd ORCH_LOCATION\bin
orchestration.cmd getStatus -pod POD_NAME -hosttype host_type -hostname host_name
-release release_version [-phase phase_name] [-taskid task_id] [-taskstatus task_
status]
Example 7–1 Retrieve the overall status of the upgrade
./orchestration.sh getStatus -pod fcsm -hosttype PRIMORDIAL -hostname host_name
-release 11.1.9.x.0
Example 7–2 Retrieve the status of all tasks in a phase
./orchestration.sh getStatus -pod fcsm -hosttype PRIMORDIAL -hostname host_name
-release 11.1.9.x.0 -phase predowntime
Example 7–3 Retrieve all tasks with a specific status
./orchestration.sh getStatus -pod fscm -hosttype PRIMORDIAL -hostname host_name
-release 11.1.9.x.0 -taskstatus success
Example 7–4 Retrieve the status of a specific task
./orchestration.sh getStatus -pod fscm -hosttype PRIMORDIAL -hostname host_name
-release 11.1.9.x.0 -taskid HostTypeValidatePlugin
7-10 Upgrade Guide
Terminating Upgrade Orchestration
Table A–3, " Options for orchestration.sh getStatus command" displays a complete list
of options for the orchestration.sh getStatus command.
7.3.2 Monitoring the Upgrade Using the report Command
The report command generates a report, in both HTML and XML formats, that
provides information about the percentage of the upgrade that is complete. It can also
inform you of any processes that may be hanging. The command follows:
(Unix)
cd ORCH_LOCATION/bin
./orchestration.sh report -pod comma_separated_list_of_POD_NAMES -release release_
version
(Windows)
cd ORCH_LOCATION\bin
orchestration.cmd report -pod comma_separated_list_of_POD_NAMES-release release_
version
7.3.3 Email Notifications
If any upgrade tasks fail, the Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade Report is
generated and mailed as an attachment to the user specified in the EMAIL_TO_
RECIPIENT and EMAIL_CC_RECIPIENT properties in the pod.properties file. For more
information, see Section A.1.3, "Oracle Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade
Report". For information about troubleshooting failures, refer to the appropriate
section in Chapter 7, "Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade" to resolve the
issue. After a failure, restart Orchestrator on the host where it failed, using the same
commands you used in Section 5.1.1, "Run Upgrade Orchestrator During Downtime".
If any configuration assistants fail while RUP Installer is running, Upgrade
Orchestrator does not display a message, fail, or send an email until RUP Installer exits
with a failure.
If the Loading Database Components configuration assistant in RUP Installer fails,
you receive an email notification only when all workers are in a FAILED or IDLE (no
tasks assigned to it) state. To resolve this type of issue, refer to the steps in
Section 7.13.2, "Database Worker Fails While Loading Database Components".
7.4 Terminating Upgrade Orchestration
Orchestration can be terminated on all hosts under scenarios that require you to issue
an exit command across the entire environment. You may need to terminate an
orchestration session on a pod for reasons such as, not being able to complete the
upgrade within a certain time, or unexpected issues that may require significant time
to resolve, for example.
This section describes the commands you use to manage the termination of
orchestration on all hosts.
■

■
Clear the Exit Status on All Hosts
■
Get the ExitOrchestration Status
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-11
Canceling the Upgrade and Restoring From Backup
7.4.1 Terminate an Orchestration Session
The following command terminates the orchestration session on all hosts across all
host types in the specified pod. This command can be run from any individual host for
the entire environment and/or pods.:
cd /ORCH_LOCATION/bin
./orchestration.sh exitOrchestration –pod POD_NAME –hosttype host_type
The hosttype argument must match the host from which you issue this command.
Upgrade Orchestrator sends a notification after all hosts exit from orchestration. After
you receive this notification, you must run the command to clear the exit status on all
hosts, as described in Section 7.4.2, "Clear the Exit Status on All Hosts." If you do not
receive this notification on a timely basis, you can find the status of your request by
running the command described in Section 7.4.3, "Get the ExitOrchestration Status."
From the time exitOrchestration is issued, until
clearExitOrchestration is issued, no other command, other than
getExitOrchestrationStatus, can be issued on the pod. Also,
exitOrchestration can be issued from any host but is applicable for
all the hosts under a pod.
Note:
7.4.2 Clear the Exit Status on All Hosts
Run the following command to clear the exit status on all hosts, after you receive the
notification that confirms all hosts exited from orchestration:
cd /ORCH_LOCATION/bin
./orchestration.sh clearExitOrchestration -pod POD_NAME –hosttype host_type
After this command runs, users can continue with the upgrade or take other
appropriate actions on the pod.
7.4.3 Get the ExitOrchestration Status
While the exitOrchestration command is running, you can run the
getExitOrchestrationStatus command to retrieve the status of the
exitOrchestration command.
cd /ORCH_LOCATION/bin
./orchestration.sh getExitOrchestrationStatus –pod POD_NAME
7.5 Canceling the Upgrade and Restoring From Backup
To cancel the upgrade and to restore the system, first terminate orchestration by
following the steps in Section 7.4, "Terminating Upgrade Orchestration". After
orchestration terminates successfully, restore the system from the backup that was
taken before starting the upgrade. For more information, see Section 5.2.1, "Back Up
Oracle Fusion Applications".
In addition to restoring the environment from the backups, perform the following
steps to restore and clean up the orchestration files.
1.
7-12 Upgrade Guide
Remove checkpoint locations.
Troubleshooting Upgrade Orchestrator Failures
Directories configured for the following properties in pod.properties are used by
Upgrade Orchestrator to store checkpoint files and to archive older versions of
checkpoint files.
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION
■
ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION
Note that if these configured directories are shared among multiple instances, then
orchestration creates POD_NAME sub directories. As part of the above cleanup, you
must delete the POD specific directories and their contents.
Run the following commands to remove any checkpoint location and its contents:
rm -rf ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION/POD_NAME/*
rm -rf ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_ARCHIVE_LOCATION/ARCHIVE/POD_NAME/*
2.
Run the following command to update the APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/instance/nodemanager/*/nodemanager.process.lck file from read only
access to read and write access. Starting servers will fail if you do not update the
nodemanager.process.lck file.
perl updateNMProperties.pl -appBase APPLICATIONS_BASE
-postUpgrade [-verbose]
The updateNMProperties.pl script is located in the REPOSITORY_
LOCATION/installers/farup/Disk1/upgrade/bin directory.
For Windows, f the updateNMProperties.pl script fails, update the value of
CrashRecoveryEnabled to "true" in FA_ORACLE_
HOME\instance\nodemanager\host_name\nodemanager.properties.
3.
Follow the steps in Section 7.11.5, "Restoring Data Under the Root Node of the
OPSS Security Store", if applicable.
4.
Remove or rename IDM upgrade checkpoint folders when a POD is restored to
backup. If a checkpoint file is present, orchestration skips the steps that are
updated in the checkpoint file. If you do not want to delete the checkpoint files,
re-name the checkpoint files with a .bak extension, or move them to a backup
folder.
From the OIM and AUTHOHS nodes, remove the contents of
/u01/logs/IDM/checkpoint. Note that OID and OIM share the same /u01 file
system, so there is no need to delete /u01/logs/IDM/checkpoint on the OID node.
The checkpoint files are named checkpoint_11.1.9.x.0_nodename_hostname.txt.
5.
Remove any directories related to incremental provisioning. From any host, check
if the following directory exists:
/fsnadmin/upgrade/11.1.9.x.0/provisioning/ipresponse/POD_NAME
Run the following command from any host to remove the directory containing the
incremental provisioning response file and its contents from the POD that you are
upgrading.
rm -rf /fsnadmin/upgrade/11.1.9.x.0/provisioning/ipresponse/POD_NAME

■
Stale NFS File Handle Error
■
Error Reported in CREATING_MIDDLEWARE_SCHEMAS Log
■
Cannot Remove Snapshot File Error
■
Unable to Initialize the Checkpoint System
7.6.1 Unable to Upload Orchestration Checkpoint Location
Problem
When orchestration is relaunched for any reason, there could be an error uploading
checkpoint files to the appropriate location. In this case, Upgrade Orchestrator exits
with the following errors.
Unable to upload orchestration checkpoints under
/fsnadmin/upgrade/fusionChangeOps/11.1.9.x.0/orchestration/bin/../checkpoint.
Corrective Action: Remove any existing files from older Orchestration run in
/fsnadmin/upgrade/fusionChangeOps/11.1.9.x.0/orchestration/bin/../checkpoint
before you proceed.
Solution
Perform the required corrective action suggested in the error message to remove files.
Then resume orchestration to proceed with the upgrade.
7.6.2 Upgrade Orchestrator Hangs
Problem
Orchestration hangs during the preDowntime or downtimeFA phase, or you need to exit
Upgrade Orchestrator in the middle of an upgrade for any valid reason.
If Upgrade Orchestrator hangs, it sends an email with a subject of "ALERT: POD_NAME :
Orchestration on host_type host_name could potentially be hung." The email includes
the cause of the hang and the log file location.
Solution
If orchestration results in any hanging tasks on any host, do not use ctrl-C or ctrl-Z to
exit. You must follow the steps in Section 7.4, "Terminating Upgrade Orchestration".
You can run these commands from another console, on any host in the pod, to
gracefully exit orchestration.
The exitOrchestration command terminates the upgrade on all hosts. Therefore,
after you resolve the issue that caused the hanging task, resume orchestration on all
hosts where orchestration was previously running.
7-14 Upgrade Guide
Troubleshooting Upgrade Orchestrator Failures
7.6.3 Unable to Find the Orchestrator Upgrade Report After Failure
Problem
After Upgrade Orchestrator fails, the console reports the following example
information:
Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade Report:
/u01/orchestration/orchreports/FAOrchestrationUpgradeReport_release_hosttype_
hostname_timestamp.html
This html file does not exist in the /u01/orchestration/orchreports directory.
Solution
As the upgrade progresses, the Orchestrator Upgrade report is archived after the
failure or completion of each task. You can find the output in the following directory,
based on the example.
/u01/orchestration/orchreports/ARCHIVE/release/timestamp/FAOrchestrationUpgradeRep
ort_release_hosttype_hostname_timestamp.html
7.6.4 Orchestration Fails to Generate Report With an Out Of Memory Error
Problem
Upgrade Orchestrator fails while generating the Upgrade Orchestrator report with the
following error:
"Java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space
Solution
Increase the ORCH_JVM_OPTION value in pod.properties to allocate more memory for
both the startup of JVM and the total size of permgen, as shown in the following
example:
ORCH_JVM_OPTION=-Xmx2048m -XX:PermSize=256M -XX:MaxPermSize=512M
7.6.5 Invalid property: must specify ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION
Problem
Property validation fails during the PreDowntime phase with the following error:
Invalid property: must specify ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION in orchestration
properties file ./../config/pod/pod_properties.
No log file or HTML file is generated.
Solution
Populate the ORCHESTRATION_CHECKPOINT_LOCATION mandatory property in the
pod.properties file. Note that no logs are generated for this type of failure, by design.
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-15
Troubleshooting Upgrade Orchestrator Failures
7.6.6 Phase in Error Status, All Tasks Were Successful
Problem
You ran the updateStatus command to manually set the status of a failed task_id on
the primordial host to "success" during the DowntimePostFA phase, for example. After
you resume orchestration on the IDM host, it fails with the following error:
Wait for peer phase: PRIMORDIAL:DowntimePostFA on host.mycompany.com
Found peer phase: PRIMORDIAL:DowntimePostFA on host.mycompany.com Error.
The results of getStatus on the pod shows that all tasks were successful but the
DowntimePostFA phase was in error status.
Solution
Setting a task status to "success" does not resolve a "Wait for peer phase" error, because
a phase level status cannot be updated by the updateStatus command. The only way
to resolve a "Wait for peer phase" issue is to resume orchestration so that it can verify
that all tasks in the phase were successful.
7.6.7 Orchestrator Fails With an Update Status Error
Problem
An orchestration task is no longer running and the following error is reported:
Orchestration step: DowntimePreFA DeploySoaShared Running
Unable to update task status from Running to Success
Oracle Fusion Applications Release Upgrade Orchestration failed.
Solution
Before performing the step in this solution, confirm that there are no orchestration
processes running. Then run the updateStatus command to change the status of the
task specified in the error message to error. Then resume Upgrade Orchestrator.
Upgrade Orchestrator supports only the following status transitions:
■
Error to Success
■
Running to Error
■
ManualStep to Success
■
Success to Error
7.6.8 Emails Are Not Being Sent Upon Orchestration Failure
Problem
The emails that Upgrade Orchestrator sends upon failure are not being received.
Solution
Perform the following steps to check if your mail server is configured properly:
1.
Run the following command:
"echo hello | /usr/sbin/sendmail email_address"
2.
7-16 Upgrade Guide
If emails are not being sent, restart the mail server and test again.
Troubleshooting Upgrade Orchestrator Failures
/etc/init.d/sendmail restart
3.
Ensure that all properties related to email are populated with the correct values in
the pod.properties file. For more information, see Table B–1, " pod.properties".
7.6.9 Upgrade Orchestrator Does Not Use a Value in the Properties File
Problem
Upgrade Orchestrator is not using a value that was recently added to one of the
properties files.
Solution
If you updated the properties file after launching Upgrade Orchestrator, follow the
steps to safely exit orchestration in Section 7.6.2, "Upgrade Orchestrator Hangs" and
then relaunch orchestration. Upgrade Orchestrator reads property file values only
before launching.
7.6.10 Stale NFS File Handle Error
Problem
While running various commands for Upgrade Orchestrator, the following error is
reported:
Stale NFS file handle
Solution
If the Stale NFS file handle error is reported while running any of the plug-ins in
orchestration or the getStatus or updateStatus commands, verify that all mount
points provided in the various property files are actually accessible. For more
information, search for mount point in Appendix B, "Upgrade Orchestrator Properties
Files".
7.6.11 Error Reported in CREATING_MIDDLEWARE_SCHEMAS Log
Problem
The following error is reported:

Solution
This error can be ignored.
7.6.12 Cannot Remove Snapshot File Error
Problem
The following error causes Upgrade Orchestrator to fail:

Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-17
Troubleshooting Failures During the Installation Phase
Oracle Fusion Applications Release Upgrade Orchestration failed.
Solution
Remove the file that is causing the error and restart Upgrade Orchestrator.
7.6.13 Unable to Initialize the Checkpoint System
Problem
During orchestration, a process can fail when the checkpoint system cannot be
initialized, and the following error message is reported:
Failed to load prevayler under path_for_snapshot: Chunk header corrupted in the
log file.
Solution
Perform the following steps to resolve this issue:
1.
Review the log file to ensure there is no "out of disk space" exception.
2.
If there is no "out of disk space" exception, restart orchestration on the host where
the failure occurred. If there is an "out of disk space" exception, ensure there is
enough disk space and then restart orchestration.
7.7 Troubleshooting Failures During the Installation Phase
Perform the following steps when an error occurs during the RUP Installer or
Language Pack Installer installation phase:
1.
Click Cancel to exit out of the installer.
2.
Review the log files to determine the cause of the failure. The log files reside in
oracle_inventory/logs/installtimestamp.log.
3.
Resolve the cause of the failure.
4.
Start the installer using the same command syntax that you used for the previous
incomplete installation. After canceling the previous installation and starting
again, you must choose to continue with the previously failed installation by
clicking Yes on the Checkpoint Dialog. If the error is not recoverable, you can
restore and restart from backup.
5.
If you choose to continue with the failed installation, the installer opens at the
screen where it was canceled. When canceled during the copy action, it relaunches
in the Installation Summary screen. Click Next to navigate through the Installation
Summary screen. When the Installation Progress screen displays, click Install to
start the installation again.
Troubleshooting steps are described for the following specific failures that may occur
during the installation phase:
■
CFGLOG-00056: Exception caught while getting node-manager homes
■
Invalid Oracle Home
■
Inventory Pointer File is Empty
7-18 Upgrade Guide
Troubleshooting Failures During the Installation Phase
7.7.1 CFGLOG-00056: Exception caught while getting node-manager homes
Problem
Within a few seconds of starting the installer, you receive the following messages:
In the log file:
SEVERE: CFGLOG-00056 : Exception caught while getting node-manager homes
In the user interface:
CFGLOG-00052 : Error occurred while moving instance specific files
Solution
This failure is the result of having an incompatible version of OPatch in FA_ORACLE_
HOME. To resolve the issue, download and apply patch 14044793, which contains the
compatible version of OPatch.
7.7.2 Invalid Oracle Home
Problem
In the Installation Location page, you receive a message about entering an invalid
Oracle home, even though the location displayed on the page is correct.
Solution
The installer reads /etc/oraInst.loc to determine the location of the central
inventory. To resolve this problem:
■
■
Ensure that the /etc/oraInst.loc file on the machine where you are running the
installer is pointing to the correct central inventory location.
Ensure that the FA_ORACLE_HOME matches the values provided during provisioning.
If a /net/location was provided as the Oracle home location during
provisioning, the same /net/location that corresponds to FA_ORACLE_HOME should
be provided during the installation. You can find this location by following these
steps:
–
Open /etc/oraInst.loc and find the path to oraInventory, which is the
central inventory, for example, server01/appmgr/APPTOP/oraInventory.
–
Change directory to the ContentsXML directory under the central inventory,
for example, server01/appmgr/APPTOP/oraInventory/ContentsXML.
–
Open the inventory.xml file to find the correct directory path to FA_ORACLE_
HOME.
7.7.3 Inventory Pointer File is Empty
Problem
After running the installer, the contents of oraInst.loc were removed.
Solution
The installer always tries to copy the inventory pointer file specified by the
-invPtrLoc option to the Oracle home on which the release is to be installed. If you
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-19
Troubleshooting RUP Installer Failures
specify an incorrect path for the -invPtrLoc file, the inventory pointer file could result
in being an empty file. Review the following possible solutions for this issue:
■
■
■
■
For best results, if you are using the -invPtrLoc option, use it with this value: FA_
ORACLE_HOME/oraInst.loc. This avoids a situation where you may inadvertently
exclude part of the directory path to the file, as in the case of using a mapped
drive. For example, if Oracle home is registered in inventory with a /net path,
such as /net/home/oraInst.loc, and you provide /home/oraInst.loc to the
invPtrLoc option, the installer interprets the two paths as different. The end result
is an empty inventory pointer file.
If FA_ORACLE_HOME is registered in central inventory with a /net path, then you
must include /net when specifying the location of the inventory pointer file with
the -invPtrLoc option, for example, -invPtrLoc /net/directory_
path/oraInst.loc.
Restore from a backup copy of your oraInst.loc file in case the original file is
damaged. You can find this in /etc/oraInst.loc.
You can recover from this error by creating a new oraInst.loc. See the "Creating
the oraInst.loc File" section in the relevant Oracle Database installation guide, for
example, Oracle Database Installation Guide, 11g Release 2 (11.2) for Linux.
Then resume orchestration.

Solution
Restart RUP Installer by resuming Upgrade Orchestrator.
7.8.6 Recovering From an Installer Session That Was Shut Down
Problem
An installer session was shut down during the upgrade.
Solution
If orchestration or tasks spawned by orchestration, such as RUP Installer, are killed in
the middle of any process, the system may not be in a recoverable state and the state
should be carefully reviewed by contacting Oracle Support before proceeding.
7-22 Upgrade Guide
Troubleshooting RUP Installer Failures

Solution
There are multiple applications with the same name in the domain in which you are
trying to register your application. This usually happens in a cluster environment,
where the same application is deployed to multiple managed servers. If this is the
case, specify the name of the server in which you are trying to register this application.
For example, run the registerWSRPProducer WLST command with the server
argument:

7.9.1 Verifying Node Manager and OPMN Status Fails Due to Bad Certificate Issue
Problem
Verifying Node Manager and OPMS Status fails with the following error:
WLSTException: Error occured while performing nmConnect :
Cannot connect to Node Manager. :
[Security:090542]Certificate chain received from <hostname> - <host IP address>
was not trusted causing SSL handshake failure.
Solution
The issue can occur when the host associated with a node manager is explicitly
bounced in the middle of the upgrade, and if Upgrade Orchestrator expects the node
manager to be in a shutdown state at that time. The node manager on the host may be
configured to automatically start up as part of the system boot process and could
cause various issues depending on which upgrade step was being performed when
the host was restarted. To resolve this issue, stop and restart node manager on the host
where the issue was reported. For more information, see "Task 3: Start Node Manager"
in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator's Guide.
7.9.2 Exception During Stopping OPMN Processes
Problem
Upgrade Orchestrator fails to stop OPMN processes with an error similar to either of
the following errors:
■
Exception: OPMN could not be stopped. Script will exit. Please stop
OPMN manually before re-running the script.
■
/APPLICATIONS_BASE/webtier_mwhome/oracle_
common/jdk/jre/lib/fonts/ALBANWTJ.ttf – No such file exists.
Solution
This issue can occur due to an incompatible version of JDK being used during the
process. To resolve the issue, perform the following steps.
1.
cd /APPLICATIONS_BASE/webtier_mwhome/webtier
mv jdk_backup_existing_version jdk
2.
cd /APPLICATIONS_BASE/webtier_mwhome/oracle_common
rm –rf jdk
cp –Rp jdk_bkp_130320_1250 jdk

Troubleshooting Node Manager and OPMN failures
7.9.3 Troubleshooting Failure During Verifying Node Manager and OPMN Status
Problem
The Verifying Node Manager and OPMN Status configuration assistant fails.
Solution
Do not exit out of Upgrade Orchestrator in response to this configuration assistant
failure. Perform the following steps to recover:
1.
Review the node manager log files to determine the cause of the failure:
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/nodemanager/host_name/
Note that the APPLICATIONS_CONFIG value can be obtained from the
APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/faInst.loc file.
2.
After you resolve the issue that caused the failure, start the Node Manager on all
hosts that are part of the Oracle Fusion Applications provisioned system. For more
information, see "Task 3: Start Node Manager" in the Oracle Fusion Applications
Administrator's Guide.
3.
Restart the OPMN server for BI, GOP (if GOP is installed), and Web Tier. If you
run the Web Tier (OHS) installed with the Oracle Fusion Applications middle tier,
you can start it using the following steps. If you run the Web Tier on a separate
machine, you may be able to run the steps below on the other machine. In either
case, ensure that Web Tier (OHS) is up at this point.
Example for BI: (note the usage of start instead of startall)
cd APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/BIInstance/bin
./opmnctl start
Example for GOP: (note the usage of start instead of startall) Note that the
OPMN server for GOP should be started from the machine that hosts the Supply
Chain Management Administration Server domain. Start the OPMN server for
GOP only if you have GOP installed.
cd APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/gop_1/bin
./opmnctl start
Example for Web Tier: (note the usage of start instead of startall)
cd APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/CommonDomain_webtier/bin
./opmnctl start
For more information about the location of APPLICATIONS_BASE and
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG, see Section 2.1, "Before You Begin".
The BI and Web Tier processes managed by OPMN are started by the installer in
the Starting All Servers configuration assistant. The GOP processes managed by
OPMN must be started using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control (Cloud
Control), as described in Section 5.2.4, "Start External Servers", after the installer
completes.
4.
Fix any other environment issues before resuming the upgrade. If the installer
exits for any reason, make sure that all node managers and OPMN processes are
running. Contact Oracle Support Services to proceed out of this step if you have
unresolved environment issues.
5.
After you start the services, resume orchestration to proceed to the Starting All
Servers configuration assistant. If the starting of servers times out, see
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-29
Troubleshooting Node Manager and OPMN failures
Section 7.15, "Troubleshooting Server Start and Stop Failures".
Note: If GOP is not installed, the user interface reports "Success" for
GOP OPMN status, but the log file reports: GOP is not provisioned.
Skipping check for OPMN status.
7.9.4 Node Manager Did Not Start Between First and Second Installer
This section describes two scenarios that can prevent the node manager from starting
between the first and second installer.
Problem
The node manager was manually started before or during the Extending Certification
Validity configuration assistant. The node manager caches the previous keystore
certificates so the updated certificates are not validated and the node manager fails to
start.
Solution
Check the node manager logs to determine if it is running and when it was last started.
If the time stamp is earlier than the Extending Certification Validity configuration
assistant execution time stamp, you must restart the node manager so that it reads the
updated keystore certificates.
1.
To find out if the node manager is running for a specific host, connect to the host
and run the following command. If any results are returned, the node manager is
running.
ps -ef | grep nodemanager
2.
If the node manager is running, find the time of the last entry of <Secure socket
listener started on port nnnn> in the following directory.
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/nodemanager/logical_host_name/nodemanager
3.
To check the timestamp for the Extending Certification Validity configuration
assistant, find the fapatch_Extending_Certificate_Validity_XXXX file in one of
the following directories:
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/RUP/configlogs
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/RUP/ARCHIVE/timestamp/configlogs
The last time stamp entry is the execution timestamp.
Problem
The administration servers in one or more domains are running before the Extending
Certification Validity configuration assistant runs. This prevents validation of the
updated keystore certificates and fails to provide the correct status to orchestration.
Solution
Perform the following steps:
1.
7-30 Upgrade Guide
Verify whether the administration server of the domain is running by launching
the administration console of the domain. If the console comes up, then the
administration server is running.
Troubleshooting RUP Lite for OHS Failures
2.
Verify the last time the administration server was started. Go to the APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/domains/logical_host_name/domain_name/servers/AdminServer/logs
directory. Using the command, ls -lrt, find the most recent the
AdminServer.log file. In this file, find the time of last entry that contains text
similar to the following example:
<Channel "Default" is now listening on machine_ip:port for
protocols iiop, t3, ldap, snmp, http.>
7.10 Troubleshooting RUP Lite for OHS Failures
This section describes the following RUP Lite for OHS failures:
■
RUP Lite for OHS Fails With Missing JDK exception
■
RUP Lite for OHS Fails With ReassociateCommonDomain Plug-in
■
RUP Lite for OHS Fails With Security Mode Errors
7.10.1 RUP Lite for OHS Fails With Missing JDK exception
Problem
RUP Lite for OHS fails during the ohs.plugin.UpgradeWebtier step due to missing
the jdk directory.
Solution
Verify if there is a jdk_backup_existing_version directory under WT_ORACLE_HOME. If
this directory exists, rename it to jdk and resume orchestration.
Also, if the missing jdk directory is from WT_MW_HOME/oracle_common, check to see if
there is a jdk_backup_existing_version directory under this directory. If so, rename
it to jdk and resume orchestration.
7.10.2 RUP Lite for OHS Fails With ReassociateCommonDomain Plug-in
Problem
During the upgrade, RUP Lite for OHS fails with the following error:
Failed execution of plugin: ohs.plugin.ReassociateCommonDomain
Solution
Update the server_name/instance/CommonDomain_webtier_
local/config/OPMN/opmn/instance.properties file to set the registered property to
true. Then check the Administration Server on either the Common Domain or the
OSN Domain to ensure it is running. If not, bounce the server and retry RUP Lite for
OHS by resuming orchestration.
7.10.3 RUP Lite for OHS Fails With Security Mode Errors
Problem
RUP Lite for OHS reports a server side error occurs with the following error message:

7.11.1 Communication Exception on Primordial Console While Waiting for IDMOHS
Problem
While the primordial host is waiting for IDMOHS:IDMUpgradeDone, there are
communication exceptions on the PRIMORDIAL console.
Solution
These errors can be ignored and orchestration can be resumed.
7.11.2 OAM Configuration Step Fails Due to Special Characters in Password
If the OAM administrator password contains special characters, such as '#' or '&', the
OAM Configuration step will fail. To work around this issue, you can manually
validate that the OAM Administration Server host/port and user name/password are
correct. After you manually validate this information, you can proceed with the
upgrade by resuming orchestration.
Perform the following steps to validate.
7-32 Upgrade Guide
Troubleshooting IDM Upgrade Failures
1.
Get the OAM administrator user name and password from the credential store.
2.
Run APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/oracle_common/common/bin/wlst.sh.
3.
Run the following commands to connect to the Common Domain Administration
Server and get the OAM administrator user name and password:
connect()
listCred(map='oracle.patching', key='FUSION_APPS_PATCH_OAM_ADMIN-KEY')
4.
5.
Get the OAM Administration Server host and port from the following properties
in APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/fapatch/FUSION_prov.properties:
■
OAM_ADMIN_SERVER_HOST
■
OAM_ADMIN_SERVER_PORT
Use oamcfgtool.jar to confirm whether the OAM server can be invoked using
the values found in the previous steps.
cd APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/oracle_common/modules/oracle.oamprovider_11.1.1
java -jar oamcfgtool.jar app_domain=crm web_domain=OraFusionApp
uris_file=APPLICATIONS_BASE/fusionapps/applications/crm/security/oam.conf

6.
If the previous command is successful, the validation is successful and you can
resume orchestration.
7.11.3 Location of GRC Policies in the OAM Applications Domain
The location of your Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) policies varies,
depending on your upgrade path to Release 9. GRC polices are located in the grc OAM
application domain if your Oracle Fusion Applications environment was originally
provisioned with either version 11.1.1.5 or 11.1.2, then upgraded to version 11.1.3, and
beyond. If your environment was originally provisioned with version 11.1.3 and
upgraded to version 11.1.4 and beyond, your GRC policies are located in the fs OAM
application domain.
7.11.4 Failure to Register MBean on Oracle Identity Federation Application
Problem
The IDM upgrade fails with an error on Oracle Identity Federation (OIF). An error is
reported in the IDM upgrade logs, as shown in the following example.

4.
Make a backup copy of config.xml.bak.
5.
Start OIF.
6.
Resume orchestration to restart the IDM upgrade.
7.11.5 Restoring Data Under the Root Node of the OPSS Security Store
Problem
Due to a failure during the upgrade, you need to restore all of the data under the root
node of the OPSS Security Store.
Solution
Perform the following steps to restore all of the data under the root node of the OPSS
Security Store.
1.
Ensure Oracle Internet Directory is up and running.
2.
Perform a bulkdelete on Oracle Internet Directory nodes.
3.
In the Oracle Internet Directory system, verify that there are no schema errors or
bad entries by running bulkload, as illustrated in the following command:
OID_HOME/ldap/bin/bulkload connect="dstOidDbConnectStr" check=true
generate=true restore=true file="fullPath2SrcOidLdif"
If duplicate DNs (common entries between the source and destination directories)
are detected, review them to prevent unexpected results.
4.
Load data into the Oracle Internet Directory by running bulkload, as illustrated in
the following command:
OID_HOME/ldap/bin/bulkload connect="dstOidDbConnectStr" load=true

Troubleshooting Applying Middleware Patches
7.12.3 Applying Post-PSA Middleware Patches Hangs
Problem
The Applying Post-PSA Middleware Patches configuration assistant hangs.
Solution
This problem is most likely due to adpatch hanging as the result of the java worker not
getting the database connection. You can resolve this issue by following the steps in
Section 7.13, "Troubleshooting Loading Database Components". Run the commands
from ATGPF_ORACLE_HOME instead of FA_ORACLE_HOME.
7.12.4 Applying Database Client Patches Fails
Problem
The following error occurs:
OPatch cannot continue because it can't load library from the directory "<dbclient
Oracle Home>/oui/lib/linux64"
Solution
This error may occur if the OUI version in the database client Oracle home is 11.2
while the OUI version in Oracle Fusion Applications Oracle home (FA_ORACLE_
HOME) is 11.1.
Perform the following steps to resolve this issue:
1.
Go to the DB Client home.
2.
Set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable to point to the database client
Oracle home.
3.
Apply the database client patches using the following command:
$ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch apply patch_location
4.
Because the patches have now been manually applied, perform the following steps
to continue with the upgrade:
a.
Go to the FA_ORACLE_
HOME/fusionapps/applications/lcm/tp/config/RUP/FMW directory.
b.
Open the pre-psa-jobs.xml file for editing.

7.13.1 Failure During Granting Privileges
Problem
A failure occurred during either the Grant Privileges to Application Schemas or the
Creating Grants/Synonyms on Application Database Objects configuration assistant.
Solution
You can find the cause of the failure by running the script manually as the sysdba user,
using SQL*Plus or SQL*Developer. After you resolve the issue, resume orchestration.
7.13.2 Database Worker Fails While Loading Database Components
Problem
You receive an email notification stating that one or more database workers failed
during the Loading Database Components configuration assistant.
Solution
You receive this email notification only when the upgrade cannot progress any further
and requires user intervention. In this scenario, all the workers are in a FAILED or
IDLE status. The configuration assistant remains in a RUNNING status until all tasks
in Loading Database Components have run. To resolve this issue, you must start AD
Controller to manage the failed workers. For additional information, see
"Troubleshooting Patching Sessions for Database Content" in the Oracle Fusion
Applications Patching Guide. After you resolve the issue that caused the workers to fail,
and restart the workers, Upgrade Orchestrator continues processing. No further
intervention is required.
Note that the messages are displayed on the console for database component failures if
you run orchestration with the -DlogLevel option set to FINEST.
There might be corner cases when you might receive an alert email indicating failed
workers although the workers are still running. In such cases, you can ignore the email
alert after ensuring the workers are running with no failures.

7.13.5 Flexfield Seed Data Upload Fails
Problem
When multiple seed data files are uploaded for the same flexfield but for different
flexfield contexts, the upload tasks can fail due to locking issues. The failed tasks
appear in the log file as the following error:
Loading failed with a JboException: JBO-25014: Another user has changed the
row with primary keyoracle.jbo.Key ...
Solution
AutoPatch defers any failed tasks to the end of the phase and reattempts the failed
tasks only after attempting all tasks in the phase at least once. Usually the flexfield
seed data tasks that failed due to the locking issue succeed on subsequent attempts.
You can ignore these errors if the flexfield seed data task succeeds on the retry. If the
task remains in a failed state, you must use the AD Controller utility to retry the failed
task.

error:
ORA-00001: unique constraint (FUSION.PJE_ISSUE_TYPES_TL_U1) violated.
Solution
Skip the AD worker that failed while running the pje_txn_fix_issues_
bug18504814.sql file.
7.13.7 Schema Deployment Fails
Problem
The schema deployment script fails when attempting to make a column not null, as
shown in the following example:

ENABLE)
Modifying TABLE Object:
PJC_TXN_CONTROLS_STAGE in the target DB ...
Could not modify the column to NOT NULL
Solution
This type of error can occur as the result of previously customizing Oracle delivered
schema content by granting additional privileges on FUSION schema objects to
FUSION database roles. To resolve this issue, revoke the custom privilege granted to
the database role and restart the failed worker. The privilege can be granted directly to
the schema that requires access.

7.15.1 Starting All Servers Fails Due to Time out Failures
Problem
A failure during the Starting All Servers configuration assistant typically happens
when one of the servers times out and fails to start due to resource issues or
application specific issues.
Solution
Various platforms and environment configurations can impact how long it will take all
servers to actually start during the Starting All Servers configuration assistant.
Although the installer waits an average amount of time for this configuration assistant
to complete before it is marked as Failed, different platforms may require more time. It
is not unusual to receive time out errors in the log files if the starting of all servers for
your environment requires more time than the installer allows. If this configuration
assistant fails, follow these steps:
1.
Monitor the status of the servers by reviewing the messages in the server log files
or on the console. The log file, APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/RUP/StartStop/fastartstop_timestamp.log,
indicates which server started and failed to start.
An example of messages for a server that timed out follows.

2.
Review the log files at the domain level to see a summary of the server status for
that domain: APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/RUP/StartStop/domain name_timestamp.log.
3.
Review the corresponding server logs for the failed servers under the following
directory: APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/domains/hostname/domain
name/servers/server name/logs.
4.
After you determine and resolve the cause of the failure, restart Upgrade
Orchestrator.

Solution
Perform the following steps to work around this issue.
1.
Resume orchestration, which shuts down and starts bi_server1.
2.
Monitor the fastartstop log files and the state of bi_server1(BIDomain).
3.
As soon as bi_server1 restarts, as indicated by a RUNNING status, start the
component coreapplication_obiccs1 or all the components of type
OracleBIClusterControllerComponent using opmnctl.

7.15.3 Startup Fails for CommonDomain: OHSComponent (Oracle VM Only)
Problem
The OHS diagnostic log contains the following error message:
No such file or directory:
Couldn't create accept lock
Solution
This issue could be the result of the hypervisors going down, resulting in bringing the
Oracle VM servers down. Perform the following steps to resolve the error:
1.
Find the entry for the lock file in httpd.config, for example:
LockFile "/u101/ohs_inst1/diagnostics/logs/OHS/ohs1/http_lock"
2.
Confirm whether the directory that contains the lock file exists.
3.

7.16.2 SOA Composite Failure Does Not Recover
Problem
Normally, a failed SOA composite is undeployed by RUP Installer. However, if the
failure of the deployment is due to an issue such as SOA servers running out of
memory, then RUP Installer does not recover until you resume orchestration.
Examples of error messages related to SOA Composite failures follow:
COMMONLOG-00049: SOA composite "composite_name" patch failed for server "server_
name".
Recovery process also failed with an unknown reason. If the SOA composite
patch exists on the server, it will be automatically undeployed during retry
or a checkpoint run. Also if the base composite is not the default composite,
it will be automatically set as default.
7-50 Upgrade Guide
Troubleshooting SOA Composite Deployment Failures
COMMONLOG-00050: SOA composite "composite_name" patch failed for server "server_
name".
Recovery process also failed, and the composite patch is not undeployed.
The patch will be automatically undeployed during retry or a checkpoint run.
COMMONLOG-00051: SOA composite "composite_name" patch failed for server "server_
name".
Recovery process also failed, and the base composite is not set as the
default composite. The base composite will be automatically set as default
during retry or a checkpoint run.
Examples of report exceptions follow:
COMMONEX-00026: SOA composite "composite_name" patch failed for server "server_
name".
Recovery process also failed. Recovery will be done automatically during retry or
a checkpoint run.
Action : No action required.
Solution
When patching existing SOA composites, RUP Installer automatically recovers any
partially deployed SOA composites after failure when you restart Upgrade
Orchestrator. The following actions can be performed by Upgrade Orchestrator:
■
■
Undeploy the partially deployed SOA composite revision if it is still present.
Set as default the same SOA composite revision that was default before the
patching was attempted, if it is not already set as default.
If the failure was caused by an environment issue, such as running out of memory,
resolve the cause of the failure before you restart orchestration.
7.16.3 Wsm-pm Application is not Running in Domain (Solaris Only)
Problem
The following error is reported during SOA Composite deployment on a Solaris
platform:
CFGEX-00079 : Wsm-pm application is not running in domain "domain name"
You have already confirmed that the wsm-pm application is running on this domain.
Solution
Perform the following steps:
1.
Log in to the failed domain and check the health of all managed servers and
deployed applications.
2.
Bounce all managed servers of the failed domains.
3.
Exit Upgrade Orchestrator.
4.
Restart Upgrade Orchestrator.
7.16.4 Manually Deploying SOA Composites
If a customized SOA composite deployment fails during the upgrade, you must
manually deploy this composite using WLST commands.
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-51
Troubleshooting SOA Composite Deployment Failures
To apply a SOA composite manually after a deployment failure
In the following steps, the example composite, FinAp, is patched from revision 1.0 to
revision 2.0 and the SAR file of revision 2.0 is in FA_ORACLE_HOME/crm/deploy/sca_
FinAp_rev2.0.jar.
Note that the parameters are for illustration purposes only.
1.
Refer to the Diagnostics report to find the name and location of the sca_*.jar file
that was copied to FA_ORACLE_HOME by Oracle Fusion Applications Patch Manager.
For more information, see "Online Patch Progress Report and Diagnostics Report"
in the Oracle Fusion Applications Patching Guide.
2.
If the previous revision contained JDeveloper customizations, ensure that you
deploy the patched revision with the merged JDeveloper customizations. Using
the sca_*.jar file from Step 1, follow the JDeveloper customization merge
instructions that are described in Section 7.16.6, "Merge SOA Composite
JDeveloper Customizations During SOA Preverification". Then use the merged
sca_*.jar for Step 3.
3.
Deploy the patched composite using the single patch composite command.
sca_patchComposite('SOA-Infra URL', user, password,
'/FA_ORACLE_HOME/crm/deploy//sca_FinAprev2.0.jar',
mergeLogFile='/tmp/merge-log.txt')
7.16.5 Invoke an Instance of SOA Composite
You must run the UpdateSOAMDS SOA composite on every domain if you made any
flexfield changes, by following the steps described in "Task: Synchronizing
Customized Flexfields in the MDS Repository for SOA" in the Oracle Fusion
Applications Extensibility Guide for Developers.
7.16.6 Merge SOA Composite JDeveloper Customizations During SOA Preverification
If you performed JDeveloper customizations to a SOA composite and you deployed
the composite to the SOA runtime, RUP Installer reports an error during SOA
Preverification, which instructs you to take the newer version of the composite that is
in the release. You must then merge your customizations by performing the following
steps.
1.
If any customizations are detected, the SOA Preverification results display the
SOA composite name, its location in the FA_ORACLE_HOME/stripe/deploy
directory, and the requirement for you to merge JDeveloper customizations into
the sca_*.jar file in FA_ORACLE_HOME before proceeding with the upgrade. The stripe
in the directory path refers to crm, hcm, fscm, and so on.
2.
Open the custom SOA workshops and the customized version of the Fusion
Applications SOA composite in JDeveloper using "Oracle Fusion Applications
Developer".
3.
Import the composite sca_*.jar file from FA_ORACLE_HOME/stripe/deploy into
the project, for example revision 11.1.9.x.0, in JDeveloper. Make note of this
revision number in the deployment window because you will need it in Step 8.
4.
Restart JDeveloper in the Oracle Fusion Applications Administrator
Customization role.
5.
Verify that there are no errors in JDeveloper.

Verify that the changes introduced in both the customized version and the patched
version are present.
7.
Right-click the composite project in the Application Navigator, select Deploy,
select the composite, click Deploy to SAR, and click Next.
8.
Manually change the value in New Revision ID to the revision from Step 3, for
example, 11.1.9.x.0, and click Finish.
9.
If the deployment folder is set to a location different from that of the FA_ORACLE_
HOME/stripe/deploy directory, copy and replace the JAR in the location
mentioned in the error message of this SOA Composite. If your file name is
different, rename it to the original name. You must copy the jar in the correct
format to FA_ORACLE_HOME/stripe/deploy. For example if you have sca_
ContractsDeliverablePurchaseDocAttrReadComposite_rev11.1.9.x.0.jar in
JDeveloper, then you must copy it back to the FA_ORACLE_HOME/stripe/deploy
directory as sca_ContractsDeliverablePurchaseDocAttrReadComposite.jar.
10. To proceed with the installation, use the same command you used to start
Upgrade Orchestrator.

wallet that does not meet Oracle's minimum standards. You must resolve any
errors reported in the log file and then run RUP Lite for OVM again.
Note that you are prompted for the password twice and that both responses must
be identical. If you need to change the password in the wallet, set the
ovm.plugin.SetupCredentials.enable_password_update property to true. If
this property is enabled, when the SetupCredentials plug-in reruns, you are
given the option to overwrite the existing password for a particular plug-in, in the
wallet. By default this feature is disabled.
■
■
ApplyMemorySettings: Check the fusionapps_start_params.properties files in
the environment, which are located under the bin directory of each domain.
Ensure that the minmaxmemory settings in the files are at least as high as the settings
in the template under the ovm/metadata directory that corresponds to the
environment's topology.
GenerateOptimizedQueryPlans: This plug-in is re-runnable. Verify this plug-in
was successful by connecting to the database as fusion_mds and running the
following command:
SELECT TO_CHAR(last_analyzed, 'yyyy/mm/dd hh:mi:ss am') as last_analyzed FROM
user_tables;
The results should show that the tables were just analyzed.
■
■
UpdateODIUnicastConfiguration: This plug-in is re-runnable. Verify this plug-in
was successful by confirming that the config.xml for each domain under the
admin-apps directory of the FA node that contains odi_server1 and odi_
serverHA, such as CRMDomain, contains the correct coherence start properties.
UpdateFusionIIRScripts: This plug-in is re-runnable. Check the
/u01/APPLTOP/InformaticaIR/bin directory to make sure that the updated
versions of fusioniirDiag.sh and fusiondqhealthcheck.sh are available.
7.17.2 Troubleshooting Hanging in Offline or Online Mode

7.18.1 Upgrade Readiness Check Fails During Pre-Downtime
Problem
Health Checker fails while running upgrade readiness checks during pre-downtime
checks. This problem might occur if OPMN and server components are not registered
properly with the Administration Server of the common domain. The following error
is an example error message:
ORCH-DOWNTIME-HCT-00002: Executing HealthChecker in task Running Upgrade
Readiness (PreDowntime) Checks-GeneralSystem failed. Refer to the logs in
/u01/APPLTOP/instance/lcm/logs/11.1.9.x.0/healthchecker for details to
take an appropriate corrective action.(Pre-Downtime Checks)
Solution
Verify that OPMN and server components are registered with the Administration
Server of the Common Domain. You can verify this by reviewing the <ias-instance>
element in the topology.xml file. There should be an entry for the server instance with
<ias-instance> in this file. You can view the topology.xml file at this location:
COMMON_DOMAIN_HOME/opmn/topology.xml. Registration is typically done when setting
up the environment.
The entry should be similar to the following example:
<topology xmlns='http://www.oracle.com/fmw-nonj2ee-topology'>
<ias-instance id="CommonDomain_webtier" oracle-home="APPLICATIONS_BASE\
webtier_mwhome\webtier "

7.18.2 DomainsFileOwnership Health Check Fails With Permissions Issues
Problem
Health Checker fails during the DomainsFileOwnership check. The following error is
reported, followed by one or more files or directories:
[ERROR]: Plugin 'DomainsFileOwnership': HC-DOMAINS-FILE_OWNERSHIP-0002 : Following
files and directories have ownership or permission issues.
Solution
Change the permissions of the files or directories to be at least 600 and 700
respectively, using the appropriate command.
chmod 600 file_name
chmod 700 directory_name
7.18.3 Troubleshooting Hung Healthchecker Plug-ins
Problem
A Health Checker plug-in is in a hung state. An example of a message that describes a
hung plug-in follows.
Verifying DB is Running and in Idle State' has not completed after a
specified estimated duration of 30 seconds and timeout value of 300 seconds.
Solution
The hung plug-in can be rerun individually or optionally with a group of plug-ins to
be rerun. The group element can be specified in the manifest to be run for the plug-in
to be rerun, as shown in the following example.
<plugin id="DBIdleStateCheck"
description="Verifying DB is Running and in Idle State"
group="SystemSetup,GeneralStatus"
invoke=""
plugin.class="oracle.check.db.DbIdleStateCheckPlugin"

7.18.4 JAZNConflictCheckPlugin Baseline Directory is Incorrect
Problem
When the JAZNConflictCheckPlugin reports a conflict, the error message reports the
incorrect location for the baseline directory reported. The location reported by the
plug-in is:
/u01/APPLTOP/fusionapps/applications/admin/JAZN/fscm/baseline
Solution
The correct location is:
APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/lcm/admin/release_number/fapatch/JAZN/stripe_name/baseline
7.18.5 JAZNConflictCheckPlugin May Report Errors
Problem
The JAZNConflictCheckPlugin reports an error.
Solution
Any errors reported by this plug-in do not impact the upgrade. Therefore, any errors
reported by this plug-in should be interpreted as warnings.
7.18.6 Validating JAZN Policy Data Check Fails
Problem
The Validating JAZN Policy Data Health Check fails with an out of memory exception,
as shown in the following example.
Problem invoking WLST - Traceback (innermost last):

Troubleshooting Health Checker Failures and Errors
7.18.7 Resolve JAZN Conflicts Found by Health Checker
Health Checker checks the JAZN Analysis reports for potential conflicts and deletions
that are not patched automatically by the installer. The reports are located in this
directory:
APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/admin/11.1.9.x.0/fapatch/JAZN/stripe/delta/report.txt
The stripe is crm, fscm, hcm, obi, soa, ucm, bpm, or b2b.
Review the Modification section of the report to see the roles that the installer did not
update. For each conflict that displays in this report, you must evaluate and manually
patch the role by using Oracle Authorization Policy Manager (APM).
The following example shows a typical Application Role conflict that has been
modified by both the patch and production, therefore it is not applied by the installer.
MODIFICATION CONFLICTS
Artifact type: Application Role
Artifact Name: OBIA_PARTNER_CHANNEL_ADMINISTRATIVE_ANALYSIS_DUTY
Description: This artifact is modified at attribute level in patch version and
also in production.
Note the location of the following files for reference when using APM:
■
Location of baseline files, where stripe is crm, fscm, hcm, obi, soa, ucm, bpm, or
b2b:

7.18.8 Temporary Directory Permissions Check Fails
Problem
The Temporary Directory Permissions Health Check fails.
Solution
If this check fails, verify the following information:
■
The file name is /tmp/pki_data*lck.tmp
■
The file owner is the same user that started the server.
■
7-58 Upgrade Guide
The file permissions are at least 0666. If the permissions are less than 0666 and the
meet the previous file name and file ownership requirements, then the file(s) must
be removed.
Troubleshooting Health Checker Failures and Errors
Assuming you have checked the rules for name, owner and permissions, then run the
following command only for the files that meet the criteria.
rm -f /tmp/pki_data*lck.tmp
Edit the all_overrides.xml file to exclude the following checks:
TmpFolderPermissionCheckPlugin
<checks category="exclude">
<check name="TmpFolderPermissionCheckPlugin"/>
</checks>
7.18.9 Critical Bind User Check Fails
Problem
The CriticalBindUserCheck fails if the password expiration date is less then or equal
to three days and the password policy in OID is set to "never expire".
Solution
You can skip this plug-in failure and proceed with orchestration.
7.18.10 ORA-20090: Few MLS Records are not in Sync
Problem
The Pre-downtime Health Check reports that it was successful, but the Pre-downtime
Health Check log file contains the following error:
MLS records are not in sync for following table,language(s) pair (along with
the number of records):
Suggested corrective action(s):
Run AD ADMIN MLS SYNC Utility for the failed table language(s) pair.
DECLARE
ORA-20090: Few MLS records are not in sync. Refer log file for details.
[Plugin succeeded]: Verifying MLS records sync up for all activated languages.
Solution
This is only a warning and does not require any action after running Health Checker.
The MLS records will be synced during the language pack upgrade.
7.18.11 DomainsFileOwnership Health Check Fails
Problem
The DomainsFileOwnership health check fails for a file with the following pattern:
$APPLICATIONS_CONFIG/domains/[^/]+/[^/]+/bin/start.+\.sh.
Solution
If the file is owned by the user who is running Health Checker, you can safely skip this
plug-in and continue with the upgrade.

are discussed:
■
Propagating Domain Configuration Assistant Takes Too Long to Complete
■
Confirm the Propagating Domain Configuration Assistant Was Successful
■
WARs or EARs Are Not Accessible From the Primordial Host
7.19.5.1 Propagating Domain Configuration Assistant Takes Too Long to Complete
Problem
The Propagating Domain configuration assistant is taking too long to complete.
Solution
This configuration assistant can take some time to complete as it is highly dependent
on the environment, specifically the number of non-admin domains and the
responsiveness of the file system.
You can monitor the progress of this configuration assistant by reviewing log files in
this location:

Troubleshooting Other Potential Issues During the Upgrade
7.19.5.2 Confirm the Propagating Domain Configuration Assistant Was Successful
To confirm this configuration assistant was successful, verify that the
config/fusionapps_start_params.properties file exists under each local or
non-admin split domain. Also ensure that the bin/setDomainEnv.sh file under each
local or non-admin split domain contains the following row:
POST_CLASSPATH="${COMMON_COMPONENTS_HOME}/modules/oracle.appstrace_
11.1.1/appstrace.jar${CLASSPATHSEP}${POST_CLASSPATH}"
export POST_CLASSPATH
7.19.5.3 WARs or EARs Are Not Accessible From the Primordial Host
Problem
The Propagating Domain Configuration configuration assistant fails if there are
WARs or EARs installed or deployed that are not accessible from the primordial host
where the upgrade is running. An example of the error caused by this condition
follows:
<< read domain from
APPTOP/instance/domains/server.company.com/SCMDomain
<< write template to
APPLICATIONS_
CONFIG/lcm/admin/11.1.9.x.0/fapatch/ruplitedomain/output/templates/SCMDomain.jar

CFGFWK-60550: Script execution aborted. The script may contain an error.
Unable to locate file:
/fusionapps/localdomain/domains/server.company.com/SCMDomain/datalens/datalens.war
Solution
To resolve this issue, you must undeploy or uninstall the WAR or EAR, which is
datalens.war in this example. Then resume orchestration. After the upgrade has
completed successfully, you can install or deploy the WAR or EAR.
7.19.6 Upgrade Failures on Non-Oracle VM Configuration Using OVM Templates
Problem
You are running Oracle Fusion Applications on a non-Oracle VM configuration and
are using an Oracle VM template, and the upgrade fails.
Solution
This configuration is not supported. To resolve this, check if a directory named
/assemblybuilder exists in the environment. If this directory is present and this is not
an Oracle VM environment, rename the directory to any other name. Then resume
orchestration.
7.19.7 RUP Lite for Domain Configuration Takes Too Long to Complete
Problem
RUP Lite for Domain Configuration takes too long to complete.
Monitoring and Troubleshooting the Upgrade
7-63
Troubleshooting Other Potential Issues During the Upgrade
Solution
This utility can take some time to complete as time taken to propagate domain
configuration is highly dependent on the environment, specifically the number of
non-admin domains and the responsiveness of the file system. Note this issue is seen
only in local domain environments where the utility is run between RUP Installer Part
1 and Part 2. This is not an issue for Oracle VM environments or other environments
with shared domains.
7.19.8 Troubleshoot Deployment of BI Publisher Artifacts
Problem
The following error occurs if the BI Presentation servers are running during the
deployment of BI Publisher artifacts:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Webcat patch file creation failed!
Solution
If you upgrade to a release that contains BI Publisher artifacts, the BI Presentation
servers must not be running. To resolve this issue, shut down the BI Presentation
servers to release locks on the Oracle BI Presentation Catalog. For more information,
see "Stopping Oracle Business Intelligence" in the Oracle Fusion Applications
Administrator's Guide.
7.19.9 Importing IPM Artifacts Fails
Problem
The Importing IPM Artifacts configuration assistant fails with the following error:
importIPMApplication() & importIPMInput() WLST commands have not run
successfully
Solution
Follow the instructions in Steps 1 through 7 in "Prerequisites for the Deployment of
IPM Artifacts" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Patching Guide. Then resume Upgrade
Orchestrator.
7.19.10 Extending Certificate Validation Fails on non-Oracle VM Environment
Problem
If you have Incentive Compensation, Enterprise Contracts, and Oracle Fusion
Accounting Hub offerings on your environment, then Extending Certificate Validation
fails with exception reporting:

■
Utilities Run by Upgrade Orchestrator
A.1 Upgrade Orchestrator Features
Upgrade Orchestrator provides the following features:
■
Upgrade Phases
■
Pause Points
■
Oracle Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade Report
■
Language Upgrade
A.1.1 Upgrade Phases
You run Upgrade Orchestrator on all host types except for the DB host. The upgrade is
performed in phases, during which sets of tasks run. Upgrade Orchestrator waits to
ensure that the current set of tasks run to successful completion on all hosts before
proceeding to the next set of tasks. If there is a participating host which is not
reporting its status, an email alert is sent with corrective action. The frequency of email
alerts can be modified by the EMAIL_LEVEL property. For more information, see
pod.properties.
A.1.2 Pause Points
Upgrade Orchestrator pauses when it reaches a task that must be performed outside of
orchestration. You perform the required steps and then direct Upgrade Orchestrator to
continue with the upgrade. If multiple environments are sharing the orchestration
software location, a pause point that is created on a host type is common across all
environments for that host type.
Default pause points are predefined by Upgrade Orchestrator to allow you to perform
the following actions:
■
Perform required backups.

■
■
Upgrade the Oracle Identity Management domain, if you are not running Oracle
Fusion Applications on a SINGLE, 3-NODE, or 4-NODE IDM configuration that is
running on Linux and a Release 7 IDM provisioned environment.
Start external servers.
You cannot edit or remove default pause points. For more information, see Section 5.2,
"Pause Point Steps".
A.1.3 Oracle Fusion Applications Orchestrator Upgrade Report
The Oracle Fusion Applications Upgrade Orchestrator report is generated for each pod
and its location is defined in the mandatory ORCH_REPORT_LOCATION property in the
pod.properties file. When you run the report, you can override the default value for
the location, if needed. In the event of a failure during the upgrade, this report is
generated and emailed to the users who are specified in the EMAIL_TO_RECIPIENT and
EMAIL_CC_RECIPIENT properties, if the EMAIL_LEVEL property is set to do so. The report
name is FAOrchestrationUpgradeReport_release_hosttype_hostname_
timestamp.html. Reports are archived at ORCH_
LOCATION/ARCHIVE/release/hosttype/hostname/timestamp for troubleshooting
purposes after the failure or completion of each task.
The report displays the task that failed, including the phase and host type. The Fusion
Applications Orchestrator Upgrade report also displays the following information:
■
■
■
Upgrade from Release: The starting release on the pod, which could be release
11.1.8.0.0 or 11.1.9.x.0.
Upgrade to Release: The ending release, which in this case is "FA version
11.1.9.x.0".
Upgrade Status: The cumulative status of the upgrade. The following states are
possible:
–
Success: All tasks were successful.
–
Error: One or more tasks failed.
–
Running: At least one task is still running and there are no failures.
–
NotApplicable: The task is not applicable on the host.
–
Pending: A task is waiting for a dependent task to complete.
–
PausePoint: A task must be performed manually. Orchestrator needs to be
restarted after the manual process completion.

A.1.4 Language Upgrade
If you previously installed any languages in addition to US English, Upgrade
Orchestrator performs the upgrade of each installed language. For information about
installing a new language, see "Performing Optional Language Installations" in the
Oracle Fusion Applications Installation Guide.
Orchestration allows you to skip one or more installed language pack upgrades by
using a property called SKIP_UPGRADE_FOR_LANGUAGE in the PRIMORDIAL.properties
file. If you choose to skip any languages, you upgrade them manually after the
completion of Upgrade Orchestration. For more information, see "Performing Optional
Language Installations" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Installation Guide.

A.3.1 RUP Installer
During the installation phase, RUP Installer copies all files for 11g Release 9 (11.1.9) to
the appropriate locations, such as Oracle Fusion Middleware home and Oracle Fusion
Applications Oracle home. After the file copy completes, RUP Installer calls its first
installer to update Oracle Fusion Applications Patch Manager and apply Oracle
Fusion Middleware patches. When the first installer completes successfully, RUP
Installer calls the second installer, which performs the Policy Store Analysis. Upon
successful completion of the Policy Store Analysis, RUP Installer calls Configuration
Assistants to perform the remaining tasks required to update and deploy artifacts to
Oracle Fusion Applications. Depending on the contents of 11g Release 9 (11.1.9), not all
configuration assistants may run.
A.3.1.1 RUP Installer Configuration Assistants
All mandatory configuration assistants must complete successfully before proceeding
to the next configuration assistant.
If any tasks fail during the installation phase, refer to Section 7.7, "Troubleshooting
Failures During the Installation Phase" for more information.
The following table provides a list of configuration assistants that the first installer
runs. The Retry Behavior and Troubleshooting column describes what RUP Installer
does after a configuration assistant fails, you resolve the cause of the failure, and then

A.3.2 Health Checker Utility
Upgrade Orchestrator runs the Health Checker utility to run system checks during and
after the upgrade to ensure that the environment meets recommended standards. You
run Health Checker during pre-down time, as described in Section 4.1, "Run the
Health Checker Utility." Health Checker is a command line utility that performs a set
of validation checks against an Oracle Fusion Applications environment. The
validation checks are organized into groups, based on the purpose of the checks and
when the checks are performed. When Health Checker runs, it uses a specific manifest
file which performs the appropriate checks.
Health Checker provides a list of corrective actions for the checks that fail validation.
The suggested corrective actions must be run manually to fix the issue before
proceeding with the related activity, such as upgrading or patching activities.

■
ODI Repository Check
Additional Information About Upgrade Orchestrator A-17
Utilities Run by Upgrade Orchestrator
Finds all jdbc connection URLs in the ODI repository and validates that they point
to the same database as the database that is referenced in the DB_CONNECT_STRING
parameter in Fusion_env.properties.
■

■
Trust Keystore Certificate Expiry Check
Checks the expiration date for the certificates in the Trust key store and reports an
error if the expiration date has passed or is within the next 90 days.
■
JAZN Version Check
Verifies that the JAZN version in system-jazn-data.xml is the same as the version
in the policy store.
■
Critical Bind User Check
Verifies that the passwords for critical bind users are not locked and will not expire
within the next three days.
■
FAPatchManager Configuration Check
Checks if Oracle Fusion Applications Patch Manager is correctly configured,
including the following validations:
■
–
Checks to see if FUSION_env.properties and ATGPF_env.properties are
correct.
–
Checks for existence of the fapmgr.ini file in the environment.
–
Verifies registered products against the database.
Identity Store Connectivity
Verifies that the idstore.ldap.provider in jps-config-jse.xml can be used to
connect to the identity store.
■
Patches Check
Verifies that all mandatory patches have been applied.
■
Listener Grid Home Check
Verifies that the database listener configuration runs from the grid home on the DB
host and also that no duplicate processes for the listener are running.
■
Port Range Check
Checks the local port range value in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_local_port_range.
The recommended value is 32768 61000. If the range is set to any value below
32768, a system process could potentially use a port that was assigned to one of
the Managed Servers. Since RUP Installer requires all domains to be down, those
ports are available for the system to use.
■
Hosts Check
Confirms that host names are correctly formatted in the /etc/hosts file. The
/etc/hosts file is a network configuration file that associates IP addresses with
A-18 Upgrade Guide
Utilities Run by Upgrade Orchestrator
host names and host alias names, if used. The following checks are performed by
this plug-in:
■
■
■
■
The /etc/hosts file contains an entry for the IP address 127.0.0.1, followed by
the name localhost.
The format of each host entry in /etc/hosts is IP_address canonical_
hostname [aliases]. If the machine name is a logical host name and is
different from the physical host name that is specified in
/etc/sysconfig/network, the logical host name must be listed before the
physical host. Ensure that the first entry in /etc/hosts, machine name (host
name), and the value used in pod.properties, are identical.
If the machine name is the same as the physical host name, there is no need to
check the order of the host names.
Credentials in Oracle Directory Services Manager (ODSM)
Verifies that a specific user, usually the PolicyRWUser user, is part of the
cn=DirectoryAdminGroup.
■
Invalid Index Check
Checks for unusable indexes in the Fusion Schema of the Oracle Fusion
Applications database.
■
Inbound Connection Time out
Checks for recommended values in the INBOUND_CONNECT_TIMEOUT parameter in
sqlnet.ora and listener.ora files on the database host.
■
ODI Setup Check
Confirms the correct connection URLs exist in the ODI Repository.
■
Central Inventory Check

and Web Tier Common Oracle home directories are registered for use by Oracle
Fusion Applications.
■
Open File Limit
Verifies the open file limit. Upgrade Orchestrator uses multiple workers for
uploading database content. The number of workers used dictates the open file
limit setting for the machine where you run orchestration. To understand how the
number of workers are calculated and the requirement for the open file limit
setting for the workers, see "Patching Database Artifacts" in the Oracle Fusion
Applications Patching Guide. For additional information, see "Increase the Open
Files Limit" in the Oracle Fusion Applications Installation Guide.
■

A.3.2.3 Override Health Checks
The Health Checker utility offers a method for you to manage which health checks run
on your environment. For example, you may want to exclude a health check that is
related to a known issue in an environment. You can also add a new check to an
existing Health Checker plug-in, if needed. The configuration parameters for Health
Checker are stored in the REPOSITORY_
LOCATION/installers/farup/Disk1/upgrade/config/healthchecks.xml file. You are
not allowed to edit this file. If you want to override any configuration parameters or
exclude certain plug-ins from running, you can create configuration override files.
Health Checker first loads the configuration parameters that are stored in
healthchecks.xml and then it considers the configuration override files.
This section describes the following topics related to managing Health Checker
sessions:
■
Create Override Files
■
Override File Precedence
■
Override Health Checker Configuration Parameters
■
Disable a Plug-in
■
Disable a Plug-in With More Granularity
■
Customize Plug-in Timeouts
■
Example For Overriding Health Checks
A.3.2.3.1 Create Override Files The first step in overriding the standard checks run by
Health Checker is to create one or more override files. To create an override file,
perform the following steps.
1.
Create a dedicated directory to place the override files you create. Set the HC_
OVERRIDE_FILES environment variable to point to the directory you create. By
default, HC_OVERRIDE_FILES points to $APPLICATIONS_
BASE/instance/fapatch/healthchecker. If you want to share the override files
that you create across PODs, you can set HC_OVERRIDE_FILES to $SHARED_UPGRADE_
LOCATION/healthchecker/POD_NAME. SHARED_UPGRADE_LOCATION is a property
defined in the pod.properties file and POD_NAME is the name of the POD.
2.
Copy the override template files located in the $APPLICATIONS_
BASE/fusionapps/applications/lcm/hc/config directory to the override
directory you created.
3.
The following templates are available:
■
all_overrides.xml.template
■
DB_overrides.xml.template
■
midtier_overrides.xml.template
■
OHS_overrides.xml.template
■
primordial_overrides.xml.template
Select the template that corresponds to the host type for which you want to create the
overrides. For example, if you want to create overrides for the primordial host, use
primordial_overrides.xml. If the override applies to all hosts, use all_
overrides.xml.
Additional Information About Upgrade Orchestrator A-27
Utilities Run by Upgrade Orchestrator
The default location for override files is SHARED_UPGRADE_
LOCATION/healthchecker/POD_NAME.
A.3.2.3.2 Override File Precedence You can create override files that are common to all
PODs or specific to a POD. POD-specific override files are located at the path specified
by the HC_OVERRIDE_FILES environment variable. Override files that are common to all
PODs are located at $HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/../common. Override files that are common
to all PODs have a lower priority than POD-specific overrides. If POD-specific
overrides and common override files exist, the settings in the POD-specific override
files take precedence over the settings in the common override files when Health
Checker loads the overrides.
Health Checker loads the override files in the following order, starting from the lowest
priority (healthchecks.xml) to the highest priority (POD-specific FA_*_
overrides.xml):
1.
$APPLICATIONS_
BASE/instance/fapatch/healthchecker/config/healthchecks.xml
2.
$HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/../common/all_overrides.xml
3.
$HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/../common/host_name_overrides.xml
4.
$HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/../common/FA_*_overrides.xml
5.
$HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/all_overrides.xml
6.
$HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/host_name_overrides.xml
7.
$HC_OVERRIDE_FILES/FA_*_overrides.xml
The file that is loaded last overrides the settings in the previously loaded files.
A.3.2.3.3 Override Health Checker Configuration Parameters To override configuration
parameters within an override file, uncomment the XML portion of the override file,
and customize the override file to meet your requirements. Remove all values from the
override file except for the values that you want to exclude. To disable a check, add
disabled=true to the check. To add a check, add the value to the override file.
A.3.2.3.4 Disable a Plug-in To disable a plug-in, you must first find its display name or
plug-in ID, from the HTML summary report or from the manifest. The following
example displays how a plug-in is defined in a Health Checker manifest file:
<plugin id="TotalMemoryCheck"
description="Verifying Total Memory and Swap"
invoke=""
plugin.class="oracle.check.sys.TotalMemCheckPlugin"
The following example depicts how you can override the plug-in the override file. This
example shows the display name, class name, and ID for the plug-in, but only one of
these is required. Note that excluded plug-ins must be listed under the "exclude"
category.
<checks category="exclude">
<check name="TotalMemoryCheck"/>
<check name="Verifying Total Memory and Swap"/>
<check name="oracle.check.sys.TotalMemCheckPlugin"/>
<check name="TotalMemCheckPlugin"/>
A.3.2.3.5 Disable a Plug-in With More Granularity You can exclude a plug-in for a specific
host, a specific version of the Oracle Fusion Applications, or a combination of both.
A-28 Upgrade Guide
Utilities Run by Upgrade Orchestrator
The following example shows how to exclude only the TotalMemoryCheck plug-in
from running on the OHS host and for Oracle Fusion Applications version 11.1.9.
<checks category="exclude">
<!-- Exclude total memory check on the OHS host -->
<check name="TotalMemoryCheck" host="OHS" />
<!-- Exclude total memory check if installed version in APPLTOP is 11.1.9 -->
<check name="TotalMemoryCheck" fa_version="11.1.9" />
<!-- Exclude total memory check on OHS host if installed FA version is 11.1.9
-->
<check name="TotalMemoryCheck" host="OHS" fa_version="11.1.5" />
</checks>
A.3.2.3.6 Customize Plug-in Timeouts If a health checker plug-in times out during health
check run, you can create a healthchecker override file to specify a longer time out.
You must know the plug-in class name, and the time out value in seconds to modify
the value.
You can find the plug-in class name by looking it up in the healthchecker manifest. In
the following example, the plug-in class name for Verify DataSource connectivity is
oracle.check.apps.VerifyDSConnectivity.
<plugin id="DSStatusPlugin"
description="Verify DataSource connectivity"
invoke=""
plugin.class="oracle.check.apps.VerifyDSConnectivity"
class.path="$HC_LOCATION/lib/precheckplugin.jar; $HC_LOCATION/lib/hccommon.jar"
stoponerror="false"/>
To find the current time out value, open the healthchecker log file and navigate to the
portion of the log produced by the plug-in. The log includes the current time out, for
example:
[2013-08-08T22:35:42.791+00:00] [healthcheckplug] [NOTIFICATION] []
[oracle.healthcheckplug] [tid: 10] [ecid: 0000K1W4R2R3v1G5IzXBif1I11oQ000000,0]
Using default timeout of 120 seconds
or
[2013-08-08T22:35:17.877+00:00] [healthcheckplug] [NOTIFICATION] []
[oracle.healthcheckplug] [tid: 10] [ecid: 0000K1W4R2R3v1G5IzXBif1I11oQ000000,0]
[SRC_CLASS: oracle.check.common.util.Utils] [SRC_METHOD: getTimeout] Timeout for
VerifyDSConnectivity is 901 seconds
Perform the following steps to modify the time out value.
1.
Create the override file as described in Section A.3.2.3.1, "Create Override Files".
2.
Go to the timeout_seconds section, as shown in the following example:
<!-- Timeout, used by plugins for running external commands or wlst scripts or
... -->
<checks category="timeout_seconds">
<check name="VerifyDSConnectivity" value="600"/>
<check name="LdapDataQualityCheckPlugin" value="1800"/>
<check name="ContextRootCheckPlugin" value="1800"/>
</checks>
3.
If the plug-in is already listed in this section, set the new time out value in
seconds. If the plug-in is not listed, add it. In this example, the time out is set for
the "Verify DataSource connectivity" (oracle.check.apps.VerifyDSConnectivity) to
45 minutes. (45 * 60 = 2700). Note that you can use the complete class name, or just
the base name.
