    Startup Shutdown Application Server - Bounce Services
    Monday, November 20, 2006
    Register for R12 upgrade
    Last month I discussed about 10g Application Server which is going to replace 9i AS ( in Oracle applications Rel 12 (Next version of Oracle Apps 11i). You can check overview & Installation Document in below links

    Today I am going to continue with 10g Application Server Startup Shutdown Scripts. If you understand 10g AS architecture which consist of
    infrastructure Services (Database & Identity Management)
    Middle tier Services (Portal & Wireless or BI & Forms)
    I am focusing on these two type of Installation & not j2ee & webcache type (which is third middle tier Installation type) in this discussion.

    Startup Sequence
    As in apps you follow order (first start database & then middle tier services in 10g AS also you follow similar sequences) Order of startup Services in 10g AS should be like
    --Start Database Listener
    -- Start Database
    -- Start Infrastructure Services
    -- Start Middle Tier Services

    Shutdown Sequence
    -- Shutdown Middle Tier Services
    -- Shutdown Infrastructure Services
    -- Stop Database
    -- Stop database listener

    What utility I should use to startup / shutdown (Bouncing) for 10g AS ?
    You can use iasconsole (Browser based console listening in default port 1156) to startup shutdown services
    You can also use opmnctl ; command line tool (Oracle Process Management & Notification) control to startup shutdown services

    dcmctl utility to start/stop services is now deprecated & should not be used

    Lets look at scripts once again
    Start listener as - lsnrctl start [listener_name]
    Start Database as - sqlplus "/as sysdba"; SQL> startup
    Start Infrastructure Services as - opmnctl startall (Make sure your are in Infra Home)
    Start Middle Tier Services as - opmnctl startall (Make sure your are in Middle Tier Home)

    Stop Middle Tier Services as - opmnctl stopall (Make sure your are in Middle Tier Home)
    Stop Infrastructure Services as - opmnctl stopall (Make sure your are in Infra Home)
    Stop Database as - sqlplus "/as sysdba"; SQL> shutdown immediate
    Stop listener as - lsnrctl stop [listener_name]

    How to start/stop iasconsole ?
    As I mentioned above you can start/stop services using iasconsole but before that you have to start / stop iasconsole itself which you can do by emctl (em - enterprise manager)

    emctl start iasconsole
    emctl stop iasconsole

    You can access ias console screen from browser by url
    http://host.domain:em_port/emd (Default em port is 1156)
    http://host.domain:1156/emd (This will prompt username password , use ias_admin)

    How to start individual component ?
    Step mentioned above are to stop/start all components in Middle Tier or Infrastructure Tier , what if I want to start/stop/restart only few components of a Tier ? You will use

    opmnctl [startproc stopproc restartproc] ias-component=[component_name]
    opmnctl [startproc stopproc restartproc] process-type=[process_name]

    Where Component Name like - OC4J, OID, HTTP_Server, WebCache and
    Process Type like - WebCacheAdmin, OC4J_Portal, OC4J_Security

    How to troubleshoot SSO Server ...
    How to change hostname/domainname of Apps 11i Server ...
    ....Coming soon....

      i guess the defual port is 1810 not 1156 can you please check it.


    • At 2:14 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Fadi ,
      Thanks for pointing that out , I have seen both depending on Application Server versions .

      In some 1156 & 1810 , I did couple of AS where port was 1156
      whereas in 9.0.4 AS & collaboration Suite its 1810.

      Hi Atul,

      Can we use 9i forms and reports with oracle applications
      can u please guide me on this its very urgent.


    • At 9:43 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      No Apps DBA,
      Only 806 forms are integarted & certified with though you can configure 10g Forms & reports comes with 10g Application server with Apps

    • At 5:55 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      Hello Atul,

      For a 10gAS Rel 1 installation supporting retek applications, we copied all the configuration and installation files to a new box(unix aix installation). I know its not supported but, can you give me the configuration files which stores the hostname as we need to change the hostname of the box. Will this work?


    • At 9:44 AM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      You want to change server name to old server (source from where you moved) or you want to change values in 10g AS so that it takes new server name ?

      Is old server also AIX ?

    • At 2:15 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      If your portal,BI or any other product data is stored in another database in that case you have to start product database & listener as well.

      So for starting applications start infastructure database and any other database associated with application tier

    • At 8:30 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said…

      Hi Atul,

      Can you discuss more on opmnctl and dcmctl ,on which all scenarios these utilities will be used and what is the major difference between these two utilities.


    • At 9:26 PM, Blogger Atul Kumar said…

      Sure I'll cover this after RAC doc in a week or two .

    • At 4:50 AM, Anonymous Rob Ford said…


      Has anyone got any Windows scripts that they could send me to stop and start the Oracle 10g app server services ?

      I am new to 10g and am looking for a really good script that sets environment, sleeps etc ... that can be used commercially

      Please send to :-

      many thanks Rob
