How To Check MD5Sums for R12 Staging CDs

How To Check MD5Sums for R12 Staging CDs on Windows

Problem:

How do I check the MD5 checksums for R12 Staging CDs?

Solution:

In MOS document “MD5 Checksums for R12.1.1 Rapid Install Media” [ID 802195.1], download the checksum file for your platform (e.g. Windows). Then execute the following command:

md5sum --check md5sum_Windows.txt > md5sum_result.txt

Note that the md5sum command comes bundled with Cygwin. If the output from the above command shows that all lines contain the word ‘FAIL’, try converting the text file to UNIX format:

dos2unix md5sum_Windows.txt

The above command removes trailing carriage return characters from the end of the lines.

After this, retry the md5sum command.

 

How to Remove an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.x Windows Environment

How to Remove an Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.x Windows Environment

The procedure described in this document (Note 567507.1 on Oracle Metalink) lists the steps you must take to remove an E-Business Suite R12 environment or environments from a Windows system.

Step 1. Back up the System and Windows Registry

Refer to Microsoft Article ID 326216:  How to use the backup feature to back up and restore data in Windows Server 2003

Step 2. Alter the Windows Registry

Delete the relevant Oracle components from the Windows registry, as follows.

To delete all Oracle environments on the system:

* Launch the Registry Editor.
* Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftware key.
* Select the Apache Group subkey and delete it.
* Select the Oracle subkey and delete it.
* Navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrent Control SetServices.
* Carefully select and delete each service beginning with Oracle.  For example, delete “OraclePROD_<nodename>_ToolsASControl”.
* When you are finished, exit the Registry Editor.

Step 3. Alter Environment Settings

Complete these steps to delete Oracle parameters from the environment.

Navigate to the Environment Variables editing screen according to your system setup.  For example, right-click My Computer and select Properties. From the Advanced tab, click the Environment Variables button.

To remove all Oracle environments from the system:

Select the following system variable if created during the failed installation, and delete it: PERL5LIB.
Select the Path variable, but do not delete it.  Carefully edit it and remove any component with “Oracle” in the name, or that otherwise references the failed install. For example, delete “e:oraclePRODdbtech_st10.2.0bin;”.
Save and exit System Properties.

Step 4. Clean up the Program Menu

Launch the Program menu (Start -> Programs). Delete all Oracle programs groups.

Step 5. Restart your Machine

Step 6. Delete the Oracle Filesystem

Step 7. Delete Programs and Oracle Inventory Entries

To delete the inventory associated with a specific instance:

* Start the Oracle Universal Installer using: Start >> All Programs >> Oracle-<SID>_db102_RDBMS>>Oracle Installation Products>>Universal Installer
* Select Installed Products
* Enable “Show empty homes”

Deinstall the entries in the global inventory associated with the Oracle Applications R12 instance which you removed earlier. For example, for the PROD instance, you would delete:
* * RDBMS ORACLE HOME (e.g. “PROD_DB__oracle_PROD_db_tech_st_10_2_0″)
* * 10gAS ORACLE HOME (e.g.”PROD_WEBOH__oracle_PROD_apps_tech_st_10_1_3”)
* * Developer 10g ORACLE HOME (for example, “PROD_TOOLS__oracle_PROD_apps_tech_st_10_1_2”)
* Exit the Universal Installer

To delete the files associated with all Oracle environments on the system:

* Open a command window and navigate to the C:Program Files directory.
* Delete the Oracle subdirectory.
* If your Oracle Inventory directory was not C:Program FilesOracleInventory and was therefore not deleted in the previous step, locate it and delete it.

OKSAUCVT.pll, OKSAUDET.pll, CSCUTILS.pll, OKCEXPOR.pll Not Generated Successfully

Problem:

Applying the R12.1.3 RUP patch to a R12.1.1 Vision instance on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition Service Pack 2. After setting the _disable_fast_validate to TRUE in the initVIS12.ora file, and then bounced the 11g database. Restarted the R12.1.3 RUP patch (patch 9239090) from the beginning. The following error occurred while patching:

The following Oracle Forms objects did not generate successfully:

au      resource        OKSAUCVT.pll

au      resource        CSCUTILS.pll
au      resource        OKCEXPOR.pll

An error occurred while generating Oracle Forms library files.
Continue as if it were successful [No] :

Solution:

Manually recompile the invalid libraries and then continue patch.

FRM-30119: Errors and warnings written to file G:oracleVIS12appsapps_stapplau12.0.0/resource/OKSAUCVT.err

Note that when these four libraries were manually compiled, they still returned errors. Nevertheless, the patch was continued by entering Yes at the prompt.

Unable to compile WSH_FTE_TP_INTEGRATION, WSH_TRIP_STOPS_GRP Package Bodies

Unable to compile WSH_FTE_TP_INTEGRATION, WSH_TRIP_STOPS_GRP Package Bodies

Problem:

While running patch 9239090 (R12.1.3 RUP) on Windows, the following Oracle Forms objects did not generate successfully:

wsh     forms/US        WSHQSSUI.fmx
wsh     forms/US        WSHSTREF.fmx
wsh     forms/US        WSHFSTRX.fmx

To resolve this, the invalid WSH packages were identified and compiled. However, while compiling the invalid WSH package bodies, compilation errors resulted.

Solution: Flush the shared pool before compiling the package bodies.

R12 Visual Studio 2005 Setup

Problem:

What Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 products were installed to be used with E-Business Suite R12.1 on Windows?

Solution:

The following products were installed from Microsoft Visual Studio 2005:

1. Under Language Tools:
Visual C++:
Smart Device Programmability [probably not needed]
Visual C++ Tools
Visual C++ Run-Time Libraries
Visual C++ Class & Template Libraries

2. Under .NET Framework SDK:
Tools

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 was installed to D:MSVS.

D:MSVSVC was the path used while installing E-Business Suite R12.1

D:MSVSVCbin was added to the PATH environment variable after D:cygwinbin (although the R12 installation guide did not state that it should be added).

 

FRM-92050: Failed to connect to the Server: /forms/lservlet: -1

Problem:

After installing E-Business Suite R12.1.3 on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition, logged into R12 on the server and launched forms.

The following error appeared:

FRM-92050: Failed to connect to the Server: /forms/lservlet: -1

Solution:

The security settings on the Internet Explorer browser on Windows Server 2003 is set higher by default.

Added the name of the server to the Local Intranet group in IE’s security settings.

Reset Local Intranet security level to Medium-Low.
