Not able to cancel concurrent request & Unable to activate CM after cloning

Posted by appsinfo on August 20, 2012

Below are the two issues that I have faced after cloning from production

Q: How to terminate a concurrent request that cannot be cancelled

1.  Identify the request number to terminate.

2.  Shut down the concurrent managers and issue the following sql command as applsys:

            update fnd_concurrent_requests  set status_code = ‘E’, phase_code = ‘C’  where Request_id = <reqnum>; (reqnum = request number)

Q: A Manager is not activating.         

Check the count in sys.dual, system.dual, & apps.fnd_dual. There should only be one (1) row for each. 
If the count is greater, change to one only. This can be done from sqlplus as  follows:

    As user apps:
                   select * from SYS.DUAL;

    Any extra rows should be deleted.

                   delete rownum from SYS.DUAL; (rownum = the row number to delete)

    Any extra rows for apps.fnd_dual must be removed by performing the following SQL command:

                 delete from fnd_dual where rownum < (select max(rownum) from fnd_dual);

**For more on concurrent managers you can refer to FAQ (Concurrent Manager Unix specific Note ID: 105101.1)**

Application Tier and not working

Posted by appsinfo on February 27, 2010

Not able to start Application Tier using and, however each individual script was working fine


2/24/10-12:41:23 :: Database connection could not be established. Either the database is down or the APPS credentials supplied are wrong.
USAGE: <appsusername/appspassword>

I raised SR still not able to get the solution.

1.  Stop All services one by one  and  run  autoconfig, however this also didnt worked out.


Diagnose as last change was with OS patches that there were some Linux OS security updates and fixes that was applied.  However the server was not restarted. I restared the server and then both and were working fine.

Still exact reason havent been figured out.

Unable to Create AME Approval Rules

Posted by appsinfo on June 13, 2009

AME Approval defining rules problem

Problem: Users are not able to create the approval rules for all the transactions using Approvals Management Business Analyst.       

Error: Contact system administrator, when enabled debugging the error was standard java error, further  enabled low level debugging using FND: Diagnostics and file.  The end date was error out with different date format.


 Modified the date parsing logic, which is error out on production, with different date format.

 1. download and apply the Patch # 8593940 in your Test Environment first.

 2. Go through the Readme and Instructions for applying the patch before applying it in the Test Environment.

 3. Make sure that you have HRMS Family Pack K RUP3(6699770) OR Oracle Approvals Management B RUP2 (5708576) 

                Refer to the following links for additional information

                   a) Oracle HRMS Product Family – Release 11i Information


                   b) HRMS Patch Install Frequently Asked Questions


 4. Ensure you are logged in as applmgr.

 5. Before applying this patch make sure that your Oracle Applications  environment has been set up. Make sure that your $PAY_TOP and   $PER_TOP environment variables have been setup correctly.

 6. After application of these prerequisites you must apply the patch by running adpatch for the driver files in the following order:

       u8593940.drv (This is the unified driver)

 7. Run adadmin to:

       Compile Apps Schemas


                 ( Check the adpatch log files for errors (search for the words “error” and “FAILED”) 

                   Type of Log File              Log File Name


                   Log file from unified driver  Name entered when running adpatch

                   Log file from worker files    “adworkxx.log” (“xx” = “01””02″ etc.)           

9. To ensure that there are no invalid AME objects, after recompiling the APPS

   schema look for invalid packages with ‘AME_%’, there should not be any.
