Hi Atul,

I have new requirement to create an URM cluster in a domain where IBR cluster and UCM clusters are already present.

Could you please let me know the process for creating this cluster? and can I use pack/unpack to propagate the URM to new nodes on the cluster without impacting the existing UCM and IBR clusters?

Thanks in advance.

Atul Kumar says March 10, 2011

@ Ranganath N,
To extend ECM domain to include URM cluster follow below process

1. Make sure you have URM schema in database , if not start rcu and install URM schema. For RCU check http://onlineappsdba.com/index.php/2009/07/03/oracle-fusion-middleware-11g-repository-creation-utility-rcu/

2. Start config.sh from $ECM_ORACLE_HOME/common/bin and select extend domain

3. Under domain component select “Oracle Universal Records Management Server”

4. On optional configuration screen select ” Managed Servers, Clusters and Machines” and define cluster with two managed server (specifiy server name where you wish to configure URM)

5. Now run pack command select option managed server true and then unpack on server where you wish to run URM maanged server

For pack and unpack follow


Q: Can I use pack/unpack to propagate the URM to new nodes on the cluster without impacting the existing UCM and IBR clusters?

A: Yes you can but Admin server of domain will be cahnged and so is config.xml for domain which is main config file.

Follow steps mentioned at http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E17904_01/doc.1111/e15483/extend_ucm.htm#i409084

instead of UCM select URM.

Hi Atul,

We want to setup replication between UCM’s contribution and consumption instance. May I know how to configure the date criteria?
