How 2 become Oracle Apps DBA : 11i

[Updated broken links on Dec 12, 2011]


Are you looking for Apps DBA training ? ( Free Ofcourse )
Are you a DBA and looking for Career or Job in Apps DBA ?
Are a Oracle DBA and interested in Learning Oracle Apps or want to become Oracle Apps DBA ?

then you are at right place

Image taken from Application Architecture Document

There is lot of Oracle Apps Training material available on net/Oracle Site at the same time lot of training Institutes are providing Oracle Apps DBA, Now its up to you if you want to learn E-Business Suite at your own or want a formal training as Apps DBA. Lets start with what all you should learn as an Oracle Apps DBA.

First thing is you should be Good in Oracle Database Skills and I assume you are already very good as DBA or don’t need any formal training as DBA. To become Oracle Apps DBA first and important thing is that you should be very well familiar with Oracle Applications/E-Business Suite Architecture . Give as much time as possible Architecture & understand all basic component . Its few , Webserver (Oracle-Apache), Forms, Reports, Concurrent Manager, Discoverer and Database. (Discoverer you can skip & can read later but remaining are building blocks of Oracle Applications. Now where to find basic Architecture and related Architecture ?

EBS Documentation

this link contain E-Business Suite but its hell lot of guide & you will not be able to finish it until you die. So from here Open Guide “Oracle Applications Concept” & read chapter 1 only that too just page 1 to 19 ( Only 19 pages & your Basics is done ) I think its not much . If you understand any thing in that put a comment on this Blog & I ‘ll definately Explain or Can even mail you .

So moving on to next part of your Oracle apps DBA training , you should know Installation. You can try installing oracle E-Business Suite on your test systems for that you can pick guide
Oracle Applications Installation Guide: Using Rapid Install In documentation location mentioned above . This might sound tough for first time but believe me it pretty simple , Everything GUI ( You can ignore creating Staging for Dump but if you are a oracle DBA you can do it pretty well ) Now if you encounter any Issues in Installation you can create Metalink Tar or if you don’t have metalink Account you can post questions in Oracle E-Business Suite Forum .
So this conclude Two important aspects of your Oracle Apps DBA Training , I am again focusing on Architecture of Oracle Apps is very critical in APPS DBA Training. If you like above material & still want to read remaining parts of Oracle Apps Training like, AD Utilities for Patching (Very Important for DBA), Cloning, Upgrade wait for my Next Blog I will Update this blog as soon as I create tomorrow or day after , till that time clear your Oracle Apps Concept . Believe me learning Oracle Apps is very simple if you Study carefully & with Interest.
Plsssssss leave comment.

Hi Atul,
It is really nice to have your email so quick. I book marked the link for future reference. As a DBA, I have setup 9i, 10g databases from scratch and applied patches,performed backups and installed 10g Apps server and configured report servers. I have gone through Oracle Financial 10.7sc intensive training in India, will it help me in becoming Apps DBA? I am a really good developer as well and got certification for developer 6i Release 2. Now, looking to my exposure, will you please tell me what step should I follow to start ii1 Apps DBA? Do you think that classroom training is required for Apps DBA?
Thanks,

Thanks for feedback, yes I agree majority of posts are on overview and reason for that is most of guys I met are not clear of concepts even so I thought of dicsussing them first though I have some posted on few things in detail as well . Do let me know on which topic you want me to cover in detail and I’ll try to cover them

Hi Atul

I have been following your site for past couple of months. Its very informative but one suggestion I have is that for people who don’t have access to metalink and oracle support, could you not create a FAQ of sorts where you can put in the frequent problems which have been encountered by you and the solutions for those problems.
Your site is nice but there’s too much theory in it…Or maybe thats why you have those webinars/Online Training on the site….

Atul Kumar says April 6, 2009

Good Question (how to become apps dba)

My tips

1. Go through Oracle Apps Architecture Guide
2. Go through Oracle apps Installation Guide
3. Install Oracle Apps
4. Go through file system (physically on server) and from Oracle Apps concepts guide
5. Learn Start/Stop of apps
6. Go through ad utilitites guide
7. Apply apps patch using adpatch
8. Check ad controller adctrl to see worker status
9. Clone apps instance using metalink notes
10. Finally try backup

This should cover most of day to day task for apps dba’s

For next level learn Advanced deployment like
1. Mulitple Middle tier configuration
2. Setting load balancer and DMZ
3. Integrating apps with OID/SSO
4. Upgrade from 11i to R12
5. Confihuring SSL
6. Upgrading tech stack in apps
7. Upgrading database with apps
8. Configuring RAC with apps database

For documentation check http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/applications.html

Atul Kumar says April 20, 2009

– what exactly the six different servers contains.
Database Server, Web Server, Forms Server, Concurrent Manager Server, Admin Server, Discoverer Server (This is for 11i)

– is it same as our database server.
Database Server for apps is same as standard database server with some additional things like Autoconfig under apputil directory in Oracle Home. Forms & web server are based on Oracle Application Server

– what is the archietecture of these six servers.
Check Oracle Apps Architecture Guide

– where the actual html forms/ frx files/ report files are stored etc…
On application tier under APPL_TOP under their own product directories (check file system under Architetcure Guide)

Fir decide which Firewall you are going to use (hardare or software) then use appropriate firewall document to block/allow port.

If your application tier is on Linux you can use pre installed software firewall “iptables”
