Dear Steve,
Thanks for continuing the good work.

We are in the process of implementing AMP for OEM 12c on Windows. Oracle suggests that AMP is not available for Windows although certification matrix suggests that it is certified. Could you please confirm below
- Is AMP 12.1.0.2.0 certified with OEM 12c for EBS setup on Windows?
- As 'Oracle E-Business Suite Plug-in' is part of AMP, can I setup 'Oracle E-Business Suite Plug-in' with OEM 12c on windows?
- When is Oracle expected to certify AMP for OEM 12c on Windows?

Thanks in advance !

regards,
PC

Hi PC,

Sorry to inform you there are no plans to certify AMP on Windows for OEM 12c.

For a complete list of certified platforms and exceptions kindly reference Oracle Support Document 1532970.1 (Getting Started with Oracle Application Management Pack for Oracle E-Business Suite (AMP) Release 12.1.0.2.0).

Regards

Dear Steven,

Thank you for such a good update! Not sure if I'm asking it too early... but, when are we expecting an AMP 12.1.0.3 release for EBS?

As of now, AMP 12.1.0.2 can monitor Web Logic components of EBS 12.2.2/3, but it raises outage incident against all the components of patch edition including all WLS and Apps listener.

We would love to see this taken care of in upcoming editions.

Thanks,
Jaydeep
