EBS 12.1 + RAC Cloning Certified for AMP 3.1

acmp_amp_plugin.png
Our team has been working feverishly on an upcoming update to our Application Management Pack to make it compatible with Enterprise Manager Grid Control 11g.  This project is in its final stages now; stay tuned to this blog for more updates soon.

In parallel with that effort, our team has just certified the use of Application Management Pack 3.1 to support cloning of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 environments running in Real Application Clusters (RAC) configurations.  You can now use AMP 3.1 to clone EBS 12.0.6 and 12.1 RAC databases for the following operating system platforms:
  • Linux x86 (Oracle Linux 4, 5); (RHEL 3, 4, 5); (SLES 9, 10)
  • Linux x86-64 (Oracle Linux 4, 5); (RHEL 4, 5); (SLES 9, 10)
  • Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit) (8, 9, 10)
  • HP-UX Itanium (11.23, 11.31)
  • HP-UX PA-RISC (64-bit) (11.11, 11.23, 11.31)
  • IBM AIX on Power Systems (64-bit) (5.3, 6.1)

New Whitepaper: Manually Cloning Apps 11i Databases Running 10g or 11g RAC

Our Applications Technology Group recently published a matrix showing certified cloning scenarios for E-Business Suite databases running in Real Application Cluster (RAC) configurations.  Since then, some concerns have been raised about the lack of Rapid Clone support for EBS environments running on the 10g and 11g databases.

In response to those concerns, our Applications Technology Group has published a new whitepaper:

This new whitepaper describes a certified and supported method for manually cloning Apps 11i environments running 10g or 11g RAC.  The Note assumes a high degree of familiarity with Oracle Applications AD Utilities, RapidClone, AutoConfig, Recovery Manager, and SQL*Plus.

Certified Oracle RAC Scenarios for Oracle E-Business Suite Cloning

[Editor's note: EBS cloning can be pretty involved. There are many different cloning scenarios, including cloning a RAC-based environment to an identical RAC environment, cloning from a RAC-based environment to a non-RAC environment, and adding or subtracting RAC nodes while cloning. Our Applications Technology Group has had to make some decisions about the relative priority of these scenarios. Filesystems like ASM, OMF, OCFS2, and NFS add further complexity to the certification matrix. If you would like to share your opinions about these decisions, post a comment below. Your feedback will be sent directly to our ATG Product Management team.]

Cloning an Oracle E-Business Suite system that uses an Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) enabled database involves numerous different technology components and steps, and would therefore be a complex, error-prone process if carried out manually. To speed up, simplify, and enhance the reliability of the process, Oracle offers the following tools for use in cloning RAC-enabled Oracle E-Business Suite systems:
