Preparing for Apps 11i AutoConfig Updates

E-Business Suite Release 11i uses the Oracle9i Application Server 1.0.2.2.2-based components in its Applications tier. This includes an 8.0.6 ORACLE_HOME for the Developer 6i Forms and Reports run-time and an 8.1.7 ORACLE_HOME for the Apache and JServ-based run-time components. AutoConfig and its associated templates provide the configuration data for these ORACLE_HOMEs.

The latest version of AutoConfig is always included with the latest ATG Technology Stack rollup patches.  It's also possible to update the AutoConfig Engine and its associated templates separately if certain prerequisites are met.  You can download the latest version of AutoConfig via the TXK Rollup for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i:

In preparation for your AutoConfig upgrade, you can run the Technology Stack Rollup Validation Utility to get a report of the current component versions on your Release 11i Applications tier. The report also advises on the components on each tier that need to be upgraded before upgrading AutoConfig itself.

TXKRUPR:

Running the Technology Stack Rollup Validation Utility

The Technology Stack Rollup Validation Utility is a perl script that is run using the perl infrastructure delivered in the APPL_TOP by the TXK team.

Where to run

  • In a single-node install, run the utility on the Applications Tier Node.
  • In a multi-node install, run the utility on every Web/Forms, Admin/CP Node
  • The latest version of the Validation Utility is shipped with the TXK Rollup. Hence the script needs to be run from the location where the patch is unzipped.

Steps to run

  1. Source the Applications environment file as the owner of the application tier file system
  2. From the location where TXK Rollup patch was unzipped, change directory to fnd/patch/115/bin
  3. Run the Validation script as described in the table below
Unix
./txkprepatchcheck.pl -script=ValidateRollup -outfile=$APPLTMP/txkValidateRollup.html 
-appspass=<apps database password>
Windows
%ADPERLPRG% txkprepatchcheck.pl -script=ValidateRollup

-outfile=%APPLTMP%txkValidateRollup.html

-appspass=<apps database password>

Note: The arguments for the perl script txkprepatchcheck.pl can be entered manually at the prompt also.

Interpreting the Report

The report generated in the location specified by the outfile argument contains:
  1. Overall PASS/FAIL status of the Utility.
  2. Report header table with information about the host, node type and configuration file, versions.
  3. Validation table for each of the HTTP Server, Forms Server, Concurrent Processing Server, and Administration Server Node types.
  4. For each of the node types, the dependent and relevant Technology Component is displayed with its version number and PASS/FAIL status.

Before Applying the TXP RUP

The AutoConfig upgrade, as delivered by TXK Rollup patches, can be be applied only when the report displays PASS for all entries in each table and an ALLPASS at the top. All WARNING/FAIL rows should be corrected with respective actions recommended in the report row before applying the patch.

Hi Steven,

On searching for TXK Rollup R, on metalink, it says that this is included in ATG_PF.H RUP6. Is this being made available separately after RUP6 was released ? I mean do we need to apply TXK Rollup R, if we have applied ATG_PF.H RUP6.

Hi, Vikram,You don't need to apply TXK Rollup R if you've already applied ATG_PF.H RUP 6.&nbsp; Regards,Steven
