    Clone Apps 11i Instance
    Thursday, August 17, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Another important & useful utility under AD_TOP which you and me as apps dba perform quite often i.e. Cloning Oracle Application 11i Instance.

    Cloning is process of creating replica of your source apps 11i Instance ( lets say you have one apps Instance with name VISIONTST and you want to create similar instance ( including same patches & user data) like VISIONPRD then you will use adclone utility (Also called as Rapid Clone these days). In this case source Instance will be VISIONTST and target Instance will be VISIONPRD. There are lot for scenario in which you wish to clone your E-Business Suite 11i Instance , like you want to Test if everything is OK in Test & then after testing want to create Production instance or you want to move your Instance from one machine to other machine or if you are highly experienced Apps DAB you can use clone as staged environment during Upgrade to reduce downtime ( this concept is called as staged appl_top or staged patching/upgrade , p.s. this is different from shared APPL_TOP)

    So here I am putting broad level steps you will use to clone apps instance .

    Step1 . Prerequisites Steps you do before start cloning using rapid clone
    1.1 Verify source and target nodes software versions
    1.2 Apply the latest AutoConfig Template patch
    1.3 Apply the latest Rapid Clone patches

    Step2 . Clone Source to Target
    2.1 Run preclone on DB tier
    2.2 Run preclone on Apps or middle tier
    2.3 Copy source file system to target file system
    2.4 Configure db tier
    2.5 Configure apps/middle tier

    Step 3 Finishing Task
    3.1 Update profile options
    3.2 Update printer settings (If printers are not configured or you don't want to use printer you can skip this step)
    3.3 Update workflow configuration settings (Important)

    If you need to know about cloning steps in detail , please leave a comment on this post or drop a mail to me at atul_iiit@yahoo.com . For detailed steps check Metalink Note # 230672.1
    In next post I will talk about Frequently Asked Questions in Apps 11i Interviews about cloning .

    Don't forget to leave comment about what you want to hear & any confusion if you have in apps 11i.

    Happy Learning

      Karthi,

      You can check post Install manual updates from Metalink Note # 230672.1 Cloning Oracle Applications Release 11i with Rapid Clone.

      Profiles: You need to change profile values which are not site specific like Server Level,Instance Level, Responsibility Level ....other profiles which are pointing to source Instance.

      Printer: You need to define new printer if target instance is using some other printer . If it has to use same printer as source no need to change any thing.

      Workflow : you can check in above note

      Hi Atul,

      Appreciate your blog. Its been a good learning. I wanted to know about configuring a load balancer environment. For Example, I have a server on which my DB, conc processing, Reports reside and another server for my Web and Forms. Now I need to add another server on which I would like to loadbalance web and Forms. How to do that? I think I need to rapidclone the first Web & Forms server to the second one. Can you please elaborate the steps on how to do this. Thank you very much.

      Hello atul,
      I gone through your website and i found that it is very very useful for me. This site covers all the information regarding apps dba. which i am looking for. I am very thankful to you

       
    • At 11:47 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      Dear Atul,

      Need your opinion on an issue with Database cloning using Read Only tablespaces

      I have an 11.5.9 database production called as PRODN on node A.

      To improve my backup timings I have made a few archive tablespaces as Read only

      I can successfully recover this database on another Node with same SID as PRODN

      No issues up to here and I have the tablespaces as Read only on DEVP node also.

      I go to the prodn and run adpreclone and bring it over to the devp machine,I still see refernces to the read only tablespace datafiles in dbinfo.lst

      Now when i make these tablespaces as Read write and runm my adcfgclone.pl there are no issue

      1)However when i run adcfgclone.pl with RO tablespaces,it breaks


      2)Does adcfgclone support RO tablespaces?Also shall it work if I make the tablespaces offline before running the adcfgclone and then i make them online after the adcfgclone

      My database is big and dev env sql-backtrack has some license issue that i could not try the option 2 above

      Regards
      Praveen

       
    • At 11:55 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Praveen,
      Your issue is really different but good one. I don't see any refernces regarding certification for RO tablespace in rapid clone but if you could share error message which you are getting & at what point your rapid clone is breaking so that I can find out in which phase of rapid clone RO tablespace is creating issue (In my views its during recreate control file phase)

      Other readers any views on this ?

      Atul

      Prasad,
      You should run adpreclone after applying any AD patches.

      Though its not required to run adpreclone each time before cloning but you should do it after Big Patches (Minipacks) & definately after ATG , Tech Stack & AD Patches

      Now you can raise these questions at forum dedicated to Apps DBAs at http://teachmeoracle.com/forum

      Posting what Oracle said for RO tablespaces

      ---->

      When cloning you cannot have read only tablespaces. These tablespaces needs to be tagged with the target dbid but this implies f

      or you to follow appendix B of cloning document: Note 230672.1

      Usually for this you need to run rman to copy datafiles from source to target.



      Ususally during the clone adcfgclone sets the dbid to be unique using an rman api (dbms_backup_re

      store.zeroDbid(0)) the datafiles need to be written to, and all the tablespaces

      would need to be writable



      If you choose to run Appendix B of above mentioned Note basically you need to run dbms_backup_restore.zeroDbid(0) after you manually

      recreate the control file with the reference to the RO tablespaces.



      So to specifically answer your question either you make writable all tablespaces before clo

      ning or have in mind above considerations.

      Thanks a lot for sharing this information with Us. It would be nice if you could write your name as well so that readers can recognize you & can take help on other questions (Though u can always put comments as anonymous if you don't wish to post ur name)

       
    • At 11:24 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      Yes that answer from Oracle was posted by me (Praveen) who originally raised all this hue and cry over the RO tablespace issues with adcfgclone.pl

      I do not know where to post this
      but posting here just if someone can answer this

      I wanted to know if the Beta Exams 1Z1-232 and 1Z1-233 are still available as of 2-Nov-2006

      They seem to have been valid from 31-AUG-2006 to 31-OCT-2006

      I cannot see the exams being offered by Prometric anymore

      Does anyone know when the 1Z0-232 and 1Z0-233 (production exams) shall be available for test takers?

      As I am in India and no one picks up the helpdesk phone’s (:- here so request someone located in US/UK to please verify and post for us here..

      Another Issue related to above is this that Prometric is still offering the 1Z1-231 which Oracle website ( http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=41&p_exam_id=1Z0_231 where it says click here to register )

      Beta Period: Testing concludes on September 30, 2006! This is a special testing opportunity available for a limited time.

      However Prometric in India is still offering this Exam as of 2-NOV-2006 and the prometric.com website also allows one to take it anywhere in the world

      Please advise.

      Whevever ther eis change in database structure, u need to run adpreclone again. Else your database won't be in sync with source database.

      I forgot once and it cloned but it ommited the missing datafiles. later on i had issues with instance and figureed out that i missed adpreclone after adding datafile.

      Hello Atul. Thanks for this great service. I am very new to Apps and wanted to clone 11.5.10. If i install Apps on the test server and i use rman or manual means to replicate database from production to test, will it work?

      Hi Atul...
      Is Oracle EBSSE 11.5.9 can be clone? as we know EBSSE is having activation code every new installation, and the code is unique on each node. Does this activation code is copied to the clone server?

      Thanks

    • At 3:58 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      Hi Atul,

      EBSSE means e-Business Suite Special Edition.
      Oracle EBSSE 11.5.9 that called Oracle Discrete Manufacturing. That i know EBSSE is part of Oracle APPS 11i. We must input unique Activation Code every doing installed. As you know is this can be clone..?

      Thanks,
      ~Ivan~

       
    • At 10:07 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Ivan,
      To be frank, I never heard of EBSSE but I am sure there might be option to clone same or to edit activation code after cloning (If code is dependent on SID or server name)

      Check with Oracle Support on this .

      Hi Athul,

      I'm just fininshed my training on Oracle Apps R12 DBA. I'm working on cloning. I have precloned the instance and moved the folders APPS, DB to the 2nd machine.

      I have installed linux and oracle R12 in other machine and moved the APPS and DB folders from 2nd machine. I have performed cloning by running perl adcfgclone.pl script. I have done cloning perfectly.

      Now, when I try to clone the instance on the same machine (by copying the folders APPS and DB in the target instance folder PROD), I' getting RC - 5004 error creating controlfile.

      Can you please send me the detail steps to clone an R12 instance on the same machine on linux. My email: parifs@gmail.com

      Thanks

      Arif

      Is it possible to clone the oracle apps database with exp / imp process using transport tablespace, If so can you let me know the details to do that.

      Thanks,
      Ramesh

      I am looking at creating the copy of Oracle Apps without any data. We used the process of exp/imp with no rows but it takes lot of time to complete the entire process. Is there any other way to accomplish the Empty Oracle APPS database (without any data)like truncating all the database objects in Oracle Apps?

      Can you suggest a better way to do the above task.

      Thanks,
      RN
