Oracle Configuration Manager Natively Supported With EBS 12

Oracle Configuration Manager (OCM) is a tool that automatically gathers configuration information from Oracle product installs and upload this information onto Oracle’s Support systems.  Customer support engineers can use this data to improve resolution times for your Service Requests.  Joshua Solomin, the OCM Product Manager, discusses the tool's benefits and the data that it collects in this article:

Oracle Configuration Manager is now natively supported with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12. Starting with OCM 10.2.7, OCM provides native support for shared ORACLE_HOMEs. This makes possible to configure the latest version of OCM with E-Business Suite instances.  EBS 12 customers can take advantage of the benefits provided by Oracle Configuration Manager without worrying about whether their Application Server and Database Oracle Homes are part of an E-Business Suite Instance. There are no EBS-specific configurations requirements with OCM 10.2.7 or higher.

Earlier versions of OCM (10.2.4, 10.2.6) did not have native support for shared ORACLE_HOME architectures. In EBS 12.0 we created a solution for OCM deployment in shared ORACLE_HOMEs that required administrators to configure OCM through the Oracle E-Business Suite’s configuration tools. The instructions for using these early versions with Apps 12 are in Oracle MetaLink Note 406369.1: Oracle Configuration Manager and E-Business Suite Release 12 Release Notes.

With the latest release of OCM, EBS 12.0 customers can upgrade to OCM release 10.2.7 (or higher) which will allow native uptake and configuration of OCM within their EBS instance. For more information on upgrading to OCM 10.2.7 or higher, see:

For E-Business Suite Release 11i, administrators can natively use OCM in the 8.1.7-based Oracle9i Application Server 1.0.2.2.2 ORACLE_HOME by following the Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide's section 2.2.2 titled Oracle E-Business Suite Installation Considerations.

I have installed OCM in EBS 11i, 11.5.9 cu2 in disconnected mode. I was able to collect the config. How do I upload it in Metalink?

thanks a lot,
Emily

I want to quote your post in my blog. It can?
And you et an account on Twitter?

Hello, Kak,

Sure -- thanks for helping spread the word. You're welcome to post a short excerpt or passage and then point your readers to the full article here on the Oracle network.

The value of Twitter is real-time two-way communication. That's also its primary downside to me. I'm holding off on setting up a Twitter account primarily because I don't have the bandwidth to respond to the inevitable queries that will pop up in real-time (I can barely keep up with blog comments and direct emails right now).

Regards,
Steven

Hi Steve,

Has there been any updates to using OCM with EBS 11i (11.5.10.2)?

Or does "For E-Business Suite Release 11i, administrators can natively use OCM in the 8.1.7-based Oracle9i Application Server 1.0.2.2.2 ORACLE_HOME by following the Oracle Configuration Manager Installation and Administration Guide's section 2.2.2 titled Oracle E-Business Suite Installation Considerations." still hold true?

Thanks
Des

Hi, Des,

Yes, the generic documentation for using OCM with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i still holds true. We haven't had much feedback from customers using this particular configuration, so I'd be interested in hearing about your experiences with it.

Regards,
Steven
