In addition to helping customers resolve issues via Oracle Service Requests, Oracle Support builds free diagnostic tools called analyzers for Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2, 12.1, 12.0, and 11i. Oracle Support Analyzers are non-invasive scripts that run health checks on your EBS environments. The analyzers look for common issues and generate standardized reports that provide solutions for known issues and recommendations based on best practices.
The following document includes an inventory of all EBS analyzers:
Oracle Support recently released a new analyzer that helps EBS 12.x customers with the upgrade to Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.2. The EBS Upgrade Analyzer provides guidance and recommendations based upon the documented upgrade process in the Oracle E-Business Suite Upgrade Guide.
The EBS Upgrade Analyzer evaluates your environment, determines whether all steps in each section of the upgrade guide have been completed, and if you are ready to move into the next phase of the upgrade. It provides output of critical environment information that may result when encountering a failure with the upgrade. Additionally, the tool will examine the environment for known issues that can cause concerns with the upgrade.
The EBS Upgrade Analyzer is available for download from the following document:
