Troubleshooting APP-10000: ORA-12500 Error

While creating a new vendor in Oracle Applications, the following error appeared:

APP-10000: ORA-12500: TNS:listener failed to start a dedicated server process
ORA-06512: at "PO.API_PUT_ERROR_SP", line 9
ORA-06512: at "PO.API_POVNDHDR_TRG", line 208
ORA-12500: TNS:listener failed to start a dedicated server pricess
ORA-04088: error during execution of trigger 'PO.API_POVNDHDR_TRG' occurred in AP_VENDORS_PKG.INSERT_ROW<-APXVDMVD with parameters (ROWID = , VENDOR_ID = 10282) while performing the following operation:
Insert into PO_VENDORS

The following steps were taken to troubleshoot the issue:

1. Ensured the respective Oracle services were running properly (OracleServicePROD, OracleStartPROD, the Concurrent Manager and TNS Listener) by stopping and restarting them.

2. Obtained TNS-12500 troubleshooting document from Oracle’s Metalink website and ensured that all items on the list were resolved.

3. Checked the Event Log on EWSD1PROD for error messages.

4. Checked Oracle’s ALERT.LOG file on ORA errors messages.

5. Ran ScanDisk on the E: of the EWSD1PROD (Oracle Financials) server.

6. Checked the SQL code in the procedure “PO.API_PUT_ERROR_SP”, which appeared in the error message. This showed that the procedure was attempting to access the MAXIMO instance.

7. Completed the backup on MAXIMO and allowed the Oracle database services on the MAXIMO server to restart.

Solution: Transactions were being pushed from Oracle Applications to the MAXIMO server, which had been shut down. Upon restarting MAXIMO server, the issue was resolved.

Solution: Change the DISPLAY environment variable in Oracle Applications.

Log on to Oracle Applications Manager, and navigate to Site Map > AutoConfig.

There are two context files: one for the Database tier and the other for the Applications Tier. In the Applications tier row, click Edit Parameters. Click the Environments tab. Expand oa_environment:generic_service. Under X11 Display (s_display), change ‘hostname:0.0’ to ‘:0.0’. Save the changes. Then log out of Oracle Applications Manager.

The context file for the application tier must be regenerated. On the server, source the environment, stop the application tier services (adstpall.sh), run AutoConfig on the application tier (adconfig.sh), then restart the application tier services (adstrtal.sh).

Resolving Yellow Bar Issue

Problem: When the Oracle Application BRAVO instance is loaded, the ‘yellow bar’ appears when the forms are loaded.

Solutions:

1. Refer to Metalink Doc ID: 162488.1, “Section 6: Troubleshooting and those Yellow Warning Bars”

Navigate to Start > All Programs > JInitiator Control Panel 1.1.8.16

Check “Show Java Console”

Exit and reload BRAVO instance.

Java Console shows no errors.

Try:

(a) Uninstall Jinitiator and clear browser cache

(b) Log back into Applications to get the new plugin, (oajinit.exe) including the new identitydb.obj

(c) Install the Jinitiator on the Client PC and then Log into the Oracle Applications to download the new signed JAR files

IE Tools > Internet Options > Security

Trusted > Custom Level

Download unsigned ActiveX controls: Prompt

Automatic Prompting for File Downloads: Enable

Had to copy jinit11816.exe manually off the server and install on client

Try:

1. Source the environment and recreate certificate:

adjkey -initialize

2. Repackage JInitiator:

adjbuild.sh /u0/bravo/bravocomn/util/jinitiator /u0/bravo/bravocomn/util/jinitiator/jinit11816.exe

3. Run adadmin and generate product jars (FORCE REGENERATION)

4. Then:

(a) Uninstall JInitiator, clear browser cache, and jcache

(b) Log back into Applications to get the new plugin, (oajinit.exe) including the new identitydb.obj

(c) Install the Jinitiator on the Client PC and then Log into the Oracle Applications to download the new signed JAR files

Rename C:Program FilesOracleidentitydb.obj

Then retry from step 4 above

Try:

1. Removed identitydb.obj from /home/applmgr

2.Source the environment and recreate certificate:

adjkey -initialize

3. Repackage JInitiator:

adjbuild.sh /u0/bravo/bravocomn/util/jinitiator /u0/bravo/bravocomn/util/jinitiator/jinit11816.exe

4. Run adadmin and generate product jars (FORCE REGENERATION)

5. Then:

(a) Cleared browser cache

(b) Removed files from C:Documents and SettingsjeffersonbOracle Jar Cache

Try:

1. Copied identitydb.obj.20070703 to identitydb.obj in /home/applmgr

2. Repackage JInitiator:

adjbuild.sh /u0/bravo/bravocomn/util/jinitiator /u0/bravo/bravocomn/util/jinitiator/jinit11816.exe

3. Run adadmin and generate product jars (FORCE REGENERATION)

4. Then:

(a) Cleared browser cache

(b) Removed files from C:Documents and SettingsjeffersonbOracle Jar Cache

(c) Launched Oracle Applications and loaded form

Solution 1:

Copied $OA_HTML/oajinit.exe off the server and onto the client machine.

Unzip oajinit.exe in a directory and run adjbuild/jinit11816.exe.

The following solution worked:

Refer to:

Subject:  How to use,create and /or update Digital Certificates for 11i Applications

Doc ID:   Note:365735.1

How to share Digital Certificate across multiple instances

———————————————————-

1. Copy Associated Files

+ Copy from alpha to bravo the following files respectively:

a. ADCERT.txt (certificate directive file)

$APPL_TOP/admin/out/adcert.txt

b. ADSIGN.txt (used to pass arguments to JRI for signing JAR files.)

$APPL_TOP/admin/adsign.txt

c. APPLTOP.cer (Certificate file that gets imported into the identitydb.obj)

$APPL_TOP/admin/appltop.cer

d. OAJINIT.exe (Repackaged Jinitiator executable that includes identitydb.obj)

$OA_HTML/oajinit.exe

Note: It will not be necessary to repackage your JInitiator file oajinit.exe if you copy it over.

e. IDENTITYDB.obj (Identity Database File used to sign JAR files on the server)

$HOME/identitydb.obj

DO NOT repackage Jinitiator.

2. Regenerate JAR files on bravo

+ Run ADADMIN to Regenerate (sign) the JAR files on each middle tier

a. Launch ADADMIN (Ensure you are APPLMGR with permissions to write to adadmin.log)

b. Choose option number 1 to Generate Files, then 5 to regenerate JAR Files making sure to enter ‘yes for force regeneration, which will resign every JAR file using the new digital certificate that you just copied over from the alpha instance.

In Summary:

Started to get yellow bar:
1. Deleted C:Program FilesOracleidentitydb.obj
