Linking the AppsTier


The AppsTier must meet the source requirements outlined in Requirements for Source AppsTier. These requirements are generic to all source Unix environments added to the Delphix Continuous Data Engine.


Follow these steps to link the AppsTier.

  1. Login to the  Delphix Management application using Delphix Admin credentials.

  2. Click Manage.

  3. Select Environments.

  4. Select the source AppsTier environment. Linking from multi-node AppsTier

Note: If you are linking from a multi-node AppsTier, select the environment for the node on which EBS admin WLS services reside. 

  1. Click the Environment Details tab.

  2.  If the applmgr environment user described in Requirements for Oracle EBS source databases for linking is not already added to the Delphix Continuous Data Engine, add the user.
    Note - There is no actual requirement that the account be named applmgr on source environment. You can use the account that can run successfully and ingest the RUN filesystem directory into Delphix Continuous Data Engine.

  3. Click the Databases tab.

  4. Click the Plus icon within the E-Business Suite R12.2 AppsTier section under installations.

  5. Add Database dialog box pops to add source config for AppsTier.

  6. Provide a user-defined name to the 'Database Name' field and $APPS_BASE directory in the 'Path' field.
    $APPS_BASE path is where the EBSapps.env file is located.

  7. Click on the Add button to successfully add the source config.

  8. Re-check the E-Business Suite R12.2 AppsTier section under installations for the Add dSource option mapped to the source config that is added in the above step.

  9. Click Manage > Datasets.

  10. Click the Plus icon next to Datasets and select Add dSource.

  11. In the Add dSource wizard, select the Linked dSource as the type.

  12. In the Add dSource wizard, select the AppsTier files source you just created.

  13. Enter the EBS-specific parameters for your AppsTier.
    These parameter values will be used when is run.

  14. Select an Environment User.

  15. Privileged OS Account (Optional) field should contain a high privileged user when the low privileged user is being used for linking.

  16. Provide the apps schema password in the Apps Password section by choosing the Username and Password from the dropdown, leaving the username field empty.

  17. Provide the weblogic password in the Weblogic AdminServer Password section by choosing the Username and Password from the dropdown, leaving the username field empty.

  18. With 4.3.0 or later We do not need to specify the "relative paths" of files to exclude in the Paths to Exclude list.
    Note: Delphix Continuous Data Engine will automatically detect the RUN FS.

  19. Click Next.

  20. Enter a dSource Name.

  21. Select a Database Group for the dSource.

  22. Click Next. Adding a dSource to a database group enables you to set Delphix Domain user permissions for that dSource's objects, such as snapshots.

  23. Click Next.

  24. Select a SnapSync policy. 

  25. Click Next.

  26. Enter any custom pre or post-sync logic as Pre-Sync or Post-Sync hook operations.
    Remember that “perl AppsTier” is already run before every SnapSync of the AppsTier.
    The Pre-Sync hook operations will be run before running the tool.

  27. Click Next.

Review the dSource Configuration and Data Management information, and then click Finish.
The Delphix Continuous Data Engine will initiate two jobs to create the dSource, DB_Link, and DB_Sync. You can monitor these jobs by clicking Active Jobs in the top menu bar, or by selecting System > Event Viewer. When the jobs have completed successfully, the files icon will change to a dSource icon on the Environments > Databases screen, and the dSource will be added to the list of Datasets under its assigned group
