    Startup / Shutdown Apps

    In our next topic in learning Oracle Apps DBA , this post covers startup & shutdown of Oracle Application DBA

    As you are aware by now there is Database Tier ( Database & DB Listener ) and Application Tier ( WebServer, Forms, Reports, Concurrent Manager, Discoverer, Apps Listener, OnetoOne Fullfillment Server )

    Order of StartUp of Services Should be
    First DB Listener, Database & then Application Tier Services

    Order of ShutDown of Services Should be
    First Application Tier Services then Database & DB Listener

    Database Startup/Shutdown Scripts
    Depending on your AD Version these will be in ORACLE_HOME / appsutil/scripts /SID_hostname
    addbctl.sh database startup shutdown script
    addlnctl.sh database listener Script

    Where

    AD is for Application DBA
    DB is for database
    DLN is database listener
    CTL is control

    Isn’t this easy to remeber ( Thanks to Oracle for naming convention)

    —–
    Application Tier Startup/Shutdown Scripts
    Depending on your AD Version these will be in

    OAD_TOP/admin/scripts/ SID_hostname

    adalnctl.sh Apps Listener Control Script
    adapcctl.sh Apache/Web Server Control Script
    adcmctl.sh Concurrent Manager Control Script
    addisctl.sh Discoverer Control Script
    adfrmctl.sh Forms server Control Script
    adrepctl.sh Report Server Control Script
    adstpall.sh Stop All Middle/Application Tier
    adstrtall.sh Start All Middle/Application Tier

    Where AD & CTL you already know now :) isn’t it

    adl stand for Apps Listener
    apc stand for Apache
    cm Concurrent Manager
    dis Discoverer
    frm forms
    rep report

    Do you know whats Use of Apps Listener ? Check else I will post it in future post .

      Kiran,
      I can do that but I suppose lot of guys will use this information during interview & interviewer can easily undersatnd if you really faced issue or you have read it on some site so I prefer you or any other person not to mug up such issues.

      I am planning to update on How to troubleshoot apache & other components soon.

      hi atul,

      this is Kenny again. I had been
      reading a bit on how to write
      startup/shutdown script for the
      middle-tier.

      In most of the scripts, the apps
      userid/password is supplied in the
      scripts. Is this a standard practise?

      Is there anyway to secure it? If a
      person knows the apps userid/password,
      how does it affect the security of
      the system?

      Hope to hear from you soon.

      thanks
      Kenny

    11. Atul Kumar says:

      Kenny,
      Apps username password is required only to start concurrent manager i.e. adcmctl.sh
      If you are using adstrtal.sh to start all services which in turn calls CM so you need apps password here as well.

      Apps password is quite important & end user should not have access to unix/windows middle tier as that has apps password stored in file system. Only authorized user should have access.

      There is dedicated forum for Apps DBA’s at http://teachmeoracle.com/forum

    12. Upender says:

      hi atul
      this is upender, i notices a minute mistake in this post… cm is called concurrent manager in adcmctl.sh, where as u mentioned it as cmc… plz check it out

      and ur efforts are good…. keep going

    13. Atul Kumar says:

      Hi Upendra,
      Thanks for pointing out , changed :)

    14. Anand says:

      Hi Atul,

      Anand here, There is a small mistake in the post as upendra said.. aln is for Application listener (adalnctl.sh) not adl.:)

      Does anyone here know how to change the OID password? We don’t have the current OID Password, to reset it to a new password. any help is appreciated.

      Thanks
      Sunitha

    26. Atul Kumar says:

      Sunitha,
      You want to change user password stored in oid then you oiddas screen

      http://infra_host:http_port/oiddas

      You can also use GUI oidadmin from oid server to change user passwords stored in OID but make sure these passwords are synched with application (if any) associated with that OID

      I am trying to find out the suer user userid and password for Oracle internet Directory. We currently do not know what it is. is there a way to reset the super user password and find out what user name was used.

      Thanks
      Sunitha

    29. Atul Kumar says:

      Super user is orcladmin , password is same as ias_admin or ods .

      There is ods password stored in oidstats.sh file check if that works.

      Hi ,

      When I shutDown Application Services, Concurrent Manager is not getting shutdown…What Might be the Possible reasons for this …Can U suggest me in this condition for proper shutdown of Application Services….

    62. Atul Kumar says:

      @ ramappsdba,
      Which script you are using to stop application services ?

      Did you try adcmctl.sh to adstpall.sh ?

      Check CM log file to see why CM’s are not stopping .
