This Post covers Start-up Shutdown scripts in Oracle Applications Release 12, If you wish to know more about Startup/Shutdown scripts in Oracle Apps 11i click here
Order of Startup Shutdown
As in Oracle Apps 11i order for startup is
A) Start Database Tier Services
–Start Database Listener
B) Start Application/Middle Tier Services
Order for shutdown in Oracle Apps R12 is
A) Stop Application/Middle Tier Services
B) Stop Database Tier Services
–Stop Database Listener
Database Tier Scripts in R12
For Database tier you need to start database and database listener. Scripts are located in Database_Install_Dir/db/tech_st/10.2.0/appsutil/scripts/$CONTEXT_NAME– For Database
Use script addbctl.sh
– For Database Listener
Use script addlnctl.sh
or alternatively you can use
lsnrctl startstop listener_name (For Database Listener)
sqlplus “/as sysdba”
SQL> startup shutdown immediate
Middle/Application Tier Scripts in R12
Scripts for Application Tier services in R12 are located in “Install_base/inst/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/admin/scripts“
where CONTEXT_NAME is of format SID_HOSTNAME
Master script to start all components/services of middle tier or application tier. This script will use Service Control API to start all services which are enabled after checking them in context file (SID_HOSTNAME.xml or CONTEXT_NAME.xml)
Master script to stop all components/services of middle tier or application tier.
Script to start / stop apps listener (FNDFS and FNDFS). This listener will file will be in 10.1.2 ORACLE_HOME (i.e. Forms & Reports Home)
listener.ora file will be in $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/ora/10.1.2/network/admin directory
(Mostly similar to one in 11i with only change in ORACLE_HOME i.e. from 8.0.6 to 10.1.2 )
Script to start/stop Web Server or Oracle HTTP Server. This script uses opmn (Oracle Process Manager and Notification Server) with syntax similar to opmnctl [startstop]proc ohs
like opmnctl stopproc ohs .
(In 11i this script directly used to call apachectl executable but now calls opmnctl which in turn calls apachectl. In 11i web server oracle home was 188.8.131.52.2 but in R12 its 10.1.3)
Script to start / stop concurrent manager, Similar to one in 11i. (This script in turn calls startmgr.sh )
Script to start / stop Forms OC4J from 10.1.3 Oracle_Home. This script will also use opmnctl to start/stop Forms OC4J like
opmnctl stopproc type=oc4j instancename=forms
This script is used only if you wish to start forms in socket mode. Default forms connect method in R12 is servlet.
If started this will start frmsrv executable from 10.1.2 Oracle_Home in Apps R12
This script will start/stop oacore OC4J in 10.1.3 Oracle_Home. This scripts will also use opmnctl (similar to adapcctl & adformsctl) to start oacore instance of OC4J like
opmnctl startproc type=oc4j instancename=oacore
This script will start/stop oafm OC4J in 10.1.3 Oracle_Home. This scripts will also use opmnctl (similar to above) to start oacore instance of OC4J like
opmnctl startproc type=oc4j instancename=oafm
This script will start/stop opmn service in 10.1.3 Oracle_Home. opmn will control all services in 10.1.3 Oracle_Home like web server or various oc4j instances. If any services are stopped abnormally opmn will/should start them automatically.
This script will be used to start/stop one to one fulfilment server.
To start / stop mwa telnet server where mwa is mobile application.
Log File Location for Startup Shutdown Services in R12
Log files for startup/shutdown scripts for application/mid tier in R12 are in $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/appl/admin/log
(adalnctl.txt, adapcctl.txt, adcmctl.txt, adformsctl.txt, adoacorectl.txt, adoafmctl.txt, adopmnctl.txt, adstrtal.log, jtffmctl.txt )
–Are you facing any issues in startup/shutdown scripts ?
–Should Oracle Create single script which should start/stop entire application including database ?
