I was going through Steven Chan's "Identity Crisis: Are Patches to EBS 11.5.9 Equivalent to 11.5.10? - very well explained from Oracle and Support perspective for Apps customers, gave me a food for thought and hence this post of mine.From Apps DBA perspective, the way to resolve this confusion is to follow the simple checks.#1.

Happy Independence Day !! - August 15th 2008. Its been a year I started blogging. I started my first post with vi for Apps DBAs on Aug 15th 2007. It was a great experience being part of the online community. I admire and I'm inspired by seeing the time and efforts put in by the fellow bloggers in the world to share their experiences. No wonder blogging is a great platform to convey, express and Madhu Sudhan

Need to Kill j000 process to shutdown the database after upgrade from to

Wed, 2007-12-19 22:20
This is a common problem after the upgrade. One important point to remember is to disable all the schedules for dbms jobs before kicking off the upgrade and enable the schedule after the uprade is over. Alternatively job_queue_processes parameter can be set to '0'.You see following symptoms in the alert log.-- Clip --Active call for process 21244 user 'oracle' program 'oracle@hostname (J000)'Madhu Sudhan

Autopatch Timing Report. Useful information that helps you to plan your Production Downtime.

I was all set to write a shell script that will parse the patch log file and arrive at top time consuming sqls that will help me know the time taken by the sqls for the upgrades. After constantly watching the Maintenance Pack ( 3480000 ) session for 30+ hours. The following lines of the autopatch session caught my attention.-- Clip --sqlplus -s APPS/***** @/xxxx/xxxx/xxxxappl/ad/11.5.0/admin/sql/Madhu Sudhan

My Experience with Oracle Service Contracts (OKS) Rule Migration Metalink Note:265048.1

Fri, 2007-12-14 18:28
Does this Note:265048.1 sound familiar ? At least I can't forget this Note#. I can tell this Note# even if someone wakes me up in the middle of the night. This is because I have spent so much of time and iterations doing Service Contracts Rule Migration before upgrade to cut down the time the Maintenace Pack (Patch# 3480000) takes. Coming to the technical aspect of this Note#, Madhu Sudhan

Revisting My Previous Post "DBUA FAILS WITH unable to extend rollback segment ODMA_RBS01"

Wed, 2007-12-12 04:15
I thought i'll add in more details to the post "DBUA FAILS WITH unable to extend rollback segment ODMA_RBS01".Just changing the entry " InNewTablespace name="ODMA_RBS" size="50" unit="MB"" in $ORACLE_HOME/assistants/dbma/mep.cfg is not sufficient. There are couple of more tags that you need to play with in mep.cfg. Refer to "CreateRollbackSegmentsODMA_RBS01" revert="true" " section in the Madhu Sudhan

Any simple problem after the upgrade that is not resolved will have long term maintenance related issues in production.It is very important to watch the alert log while applying Oracle Applications patch as it gives wealth of information. As a matter of practice I watch the alert log while applying a patch and noticed that Invalid's Compilation stage of adpatch performed by "adpcpcmp.pls" was Madhu Sudhan

Mike Shaw's 10 Tips for protecting your 'APPS' password

10 Tips for protecting your 'APPS' password - is a very nice post by Oracle Corp - Mike Shaw. Out of the 10 tips in the post by M.Shaw, #7 & #10 are my favourites.#7. Ensure no processes are running with APPS username/password in command line - This is very important as Apps DBAs are always tempted to use sqlplus apps/apps-password at unix command prompt.

vi for Apps DBAs

Wed, 2007-08-15 08:33
I intend to start of my first Blog with "vi for DBAs". I used to receive queries ( not sql queries :) ) from fellow DBAs on how to search and replace in "vi". A collection of complex (which I think are) search and replace commands of vi that I came across are summarized below. These commands are useful for DBAs in their day-to-day Administration. #1.
