© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Remediation of Obsolete objects in CEMLI objects Most every customer has directly modified the standard code Your customizations need to differentiate from Oracle standard naming conventions (R-12 leverage 3 digit naming convention) Don’t lose your source code – make a copy …. Leverage config snap shot tools Your modifications to seeded responsibilities (will be lost during an upgrade) Your modification to other seed data may be impacted Some Lessons Learned
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Some Lessons Learned Web ADI – Web ADI journal templates will need to be re-created – Web ADI journal upload spreadsheets do NOT support multiple tabs Report Manager – Report Manager will need creation of custom templates for use with FSGs. Generic FSG Template can be used, but cannot be modified – Report Manager saves reports in FRM_REPOSITORY_LOBS table, and cannot save reports to a file system – Reports may need to be transferred to a network drive periodically to avoid tablespace issues – Reports Repository needs to be periodically cleansed
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Cash Management – Cash Management module owns banks, bank accounts, and bank branches setups in R12 – Bank Account security will not allow update to Payables Documents – needs security to be setup Some Lessons Learned
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Planning for an Upgrade Plan for downtime (~60hrs avg) – What can be done before the downtime? – What can be done to make the upgrade run faster? Can Separate Hardware be used for the upgrade? Customizations – Follow standards, Backup, TEST!! Practice Upgrade Steps 23

Upgrade Small Customer Performance Sample Small Hardware Configuration : Database server – 4 x Dual Core (8 1.8 Ghz AMD Opteron – 8 GB RAM – RHEL4 – 64-bit OS – Database size – 38 GB APPS server – 2 x Dual Core (4 2.2 Ghz AMD Opteron – 2 GB RAM – RHEL4 – 32-bit OS Approximately 12K jobs per hour!! 24
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Upgrade Large Customer Performance Sample Large Hardware Configuration : Database server – Sun M5000 – 4 x quad core SPARC processors ( 2.4GHz US T2 ) – 64 GB RAM – Sun Solaris – Database size – 1.2 TB APPS servers x 3 – Sun T5140 – 2 x 8-core processors ( 1.2GHz US T2 ) – 64 GB RAM – Sun Solaris Approximately 12K jobs per hour!! 25
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Upgrade Performance Automate fixes Tune upgrade performance – Optimize Long running jobs – Workers – Batch Size Monitor the Upgrade – AD Logs, alert logs – Long running jobs – Space allocation – AWR and OEM 10g 26
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Upgrade Performance Here’s how we do it: Turn off archive-logging for duration of upgrade. Use single member 2 GB redo log size for fewer log switches. Set log_checkpoint_interval to 0. Size all tablespaces adequately and set data-files to auto-extend. Size SGA to utilize max. CPU and memory. Install and stage APPS tier and DB home executables, re-use for multiple runs. 27
© 2010 Zanett. All rights reserved. Summary Not your standard project – a decent amount of ‘gotcha’s’ Detail Preparation up front – Testing Scenarios – CEMLI List – Cross referencing Testing and CEMLI object Use tools to identify use of Obsolete objects, seed data changes, etc. Leverage a proven work plan, scripts, testing steps, best practice libraries, etc. Practice makes perfect – practice the technical steps Limit change – focus on the technical upgrade Get some guidance/help for experienced resources Review Lesson learned 28
