Relink Executables In AD_TOP

Problem:

How do I relink executables in AD_TOP?

Solution:

Run adrelink.sh from command line to relink all AD executables by performing the following steps:

Open new MS DOS prompt.
Change directory to APPL_TOP.
Run relink[CONTEXT_NAME].cmd where CONTEXT_NAME is set to the customer specific context name. For example, ‘$ relinkVIS_host1.cmd’ where CONTEXT_NAME IS ‘VIS_host1’.

setClassPath: Unable to get PATH from environment or registry

Problem:

After installing R12.1.1 Vision instance on Windows 2008, all concurrent processes remain on phase ‘Inactive’ and status ‘No Manager’.

Checked concurrent manager log file, located in:
C:oracleVISinstappsVIS2_hostnamelogsapplconclog

At first, CM_VIS2_hostname.log was blank, but then eventually filled with log information. The following message was seen:

setClassPath: Unable to get PATH from environment or registry!:
The operation completed successfully.

Solution:

The PATH environment variable exceeds 1024 characters.

Shorten the system path (e.g. remove duplicate entries), so that it does not exceed 1024 characters and ensure that the Windows directories are accessible.
