Autoconfig in Nutshell
Which is most important file in entire E-Business Suite 11i ?
My network team is changing Hostname or IP of my E-Business Server, what should I do ?
Is there a single file which records entire system configuration ?
Oracle asked me to apply g driver patch on forms/reports tier only , how to confirm for forms/reports tier ?
Last week developers gave me some customization to put in some config file and they are gone now , why and how can I save them over written by other program ?
TIER_FORMS oa_var="s_isForms" YES TIER_FORMS YES : Means this tier is forms tier
oa_host tag is for host information like
host oa_var="s_hostname" appsserver host : means host name of this tier
domain oa_var="s_domainname" co.uk domain : means domain name so If sysadmin says they are changing hostname or domain name of system change here runautoconfig & couple of more steps , ( isn't this simple )
oa_environments Environment related configuration
TIER_ADFORMS oa_var="s_isAdForms" YES TIER_ADFORMS
TIER_ADNODE oa_var="s_isAdConc" NO TIER_ADNODE Means this is Forms Tier but not concurrent Manager Tier
GL_TOP oa_var="s_gltop" oa_type="PROD_TOP" oa_enabled="TRUE" /d10/avision/VIS11I/appl/gl/11.5.0 GL_TOP
GMA_TOP oa_var="s_gmatop" oa_type="PROD_TOP" oa_enabled="FALSE" /d10/avision/VIS11I/appl/gma/11.5.0 GMA_TOP
Means this product GL is enabled and GMA not
Cutomizing Autoconfig Enabled Services
Standard build In most of Production Environment don't meet your need , like you want to start more than One Jserv to cater lot of self Service Request or You want to Integrate forms with third party Java version ....I know you will confidently say I know how to Implement it , Using "Begin/End Customization" but are you aware that there is better way of doing this now i.e. Autoconfig Supported way .
