Running Autoconfig in Test mode - Useful for Making 11i Rapid Clones faster..

Preface

If you prepare a context file ahead of time and sanitize it well, you can save time during 11i clones.

Sometimes, though, editing context XML files can turn against you as well. For example, simple syntax issues (missing a > or a /) can cause a lot of grief and convert precious time into roundabout troubleshooting effort.

The wise thing to do...

The AD product has its own utility for running Autoconfig in test mode. This provides a great channel for proof-executing the autoconfig run, check elaborate value errors and saving precious time during the clone.

A sample run..

Run autoconfig on check mode on all tiers (middle tiers, admin tier, configurator tier):

sandbox:dev806> /ORACLE/apps/dev/ad/11.5.0/bin/adchkcfg.sh
Enter the full path to the Applications Context file:
/ORACLE/apps/dev/admin/dev_sandbox.xml   
Enter the APPS user password:
abcdefg
AutoConfig is running in test mode and building diffs...

AutoConfig will consider the custom templates if present.
        Using APPL_TOP location     : /ORACLE/apps/dev/

Conclusion

There are many useful AD utilities that we can leverage, if we are aware of them; adchkcfg.sh is one of them. It can be especially useful for pre-staging context XML files for 11i/12i RapidClones.
