1 Pennsylvania Banner Users Group 2008 Fall Conference Banner 8 implemetation Pitfalls and Bugs

2 General Announcements: Please turn off all cell phones/pagers If you must leave the session early, please do so as discreetly as possible Please avoid side conversations during the session Questions will be answered ….. Thank you for your cooperation

3 TEMPLE UNIVERSITY Anthony Lower:Portal Charlie Shao:Database and INB Team Member: Allison Levin Brandon Huttie Inna Pomeranets

4 Project Plan 1. Project started: Jan Luminis Launched: July Finance:July Human Resources:Jan Student/Fin Aid/Admission: Fall Decommission of Mainframe: June 2011

5 Infrastructure Database Server: Dell Linux 4.5, 64-bit PowerEdge Hz 8 dual core Database Version: RAC

6 Infrastructure INB server: Dell Linux 4.5, 32-bit, OAS SSB server: Dell Linux 4.5, 32-bit, OAS Dell PowerEdge 2950

7 Configurations: Logically 5 separate database instances: TSTF = Finance TSTH = HR TSTS = Student TSTR = Financial Aid TSTA = Advancement INTE = Integrated of everything Physically, separate RAC clusters (NP,PREPRD,PROD)

8 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs DATABASE

9 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug : Data pump will cause data corruption Workaround Applying patch Upgrade to Oracle See Metalink for more details

10 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug : Data pump import will cause ORA-6502 to occur Workaround Applying patch Upgrade to Oracle See Metalink for more details

11 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug : Data pump will not export disabled primary keys. Workaround Enable all your primary keys on the source database before exporting. See Metalink for more details

12 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug : EXPDP on RAC will fail if set PARALLEL more than 1 ORA-39014: One or more workers have prematurely exited ORA-39029:worker 2 with process name DW005 prematurely terminated Workaround Use Export DataPump job with PARALLEL=1 (default) Run Export DataPump job When only one instance is started in RAC Apply the one-off patch available ( Patch ) Note: All directires has to be accessable from all the nodes, in other word, all the export directories have to be on shared storage

13 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug : If a database was created with NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR, then the database export will get an error message. Oracle patching also gets the error. Workaround Set NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=BYTE before creating a database, and reset it to CHAR after the database is created. See Metalink for more details

14 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug: No number specified Alter system set NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR scope=both will not take effect until database reboot, even though the scope says both and the command did not return any error Workaround Reboot the database after issuing the command

15 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Create banner database in the following steps: Create database with 1. NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=Bytes 2. NLS_CHARACTERSET=AL32UTF8 3. NLS_NCHAR_CHACTERSET=AL16UTF16 After database created 1. Alter system set NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=Char 2. Bounce database 3. Start your import

16 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Oracle Bug : Oracle export/import utility will preserve the length semantics of the original data Workaround Precreate all your tables which the right length semantics before importing your data Avoiding using export/import utility, using expdp/impdp instead

17 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs The following grants got lost during the importing of source data: grant execute on dbms_pipe to baninst1; grant execute on dbms_flashback to baninst1; grant execute on dbms_lock to baninst1; grant select on dba_policies to saturn; grant execute on dbms_crysp to bansecr; What grants/how many grants need to be applied depends on your system and modules

18 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs If you use OMF (Oracle managed datafiles), all tablespaces have to be created in Banner 8 database before any import can occur Watch out for your NLS_LANG settings Watch out for your Sql loader character set

19 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs After database character set change, your application using chr() function will fail Name of database are limited to 8 bytes Name of database links limited to 128 bytes Password can only be single bytes character

20 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs INB Server

21 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Banner HR Defect :1-41Y5EF Banner 8 full install not shipping latest paycmpl.sh Workaround Re-download paycmpl.sh See 1-41Y5EF for details on Banner help site

22 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Banner HR Defect :1-2OVB46 Form shadgmq and shqterm would not compile on OAS , because SQQOLIB.fmb link was there, but SOQOLIB.FMB is not Workaround ln -f soqolib.fmb SOQOLIB.fmb See 1-2OVHZU for details on Banner help site

23 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Banner General Defect :1-3K60ZC Strings not translatable in gjarslt.fmb Banner General Defect :1-3F9L53 Seveal objectss strings not translatable in gjarslt.fmb Banner General Defect :1-3CTAL5 Goatpad.fmb has navigation problem

24 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Create user through GSASECR will fail at RAC environment

25 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Iit is all because of this ugly SQL: select distinct(profile), DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME')) PASSWORD_LIFE_TIME, DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_GRACE_TIME'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_GRACE_TIME'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_GRACE_TIME')) PASSWORD_GRACE_TIME,

26 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME')) PASSWORD_LOCK_TIME, DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_REUSE_MAX'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_REUSE_MAX'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_REUSE_MAX')) PASSWORD_REUSE_MAX, DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_REUSE_TIME'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_REUSE_TIME'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'PASSWORD_REUSE_TIME')) PASSWORD_REUSE_TIME,

27 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS')) FAILED_LOGIN_ATTEMPTS, (SELECT value FROM gv$parameter WHERE name = 'resource_limit') TIME_LIMITS_ACTIVE, DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'CONNECT_TIME'), 'DEFAULT',(select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'CONNECT_TIME'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'CONNECT_TIME')) CONNECT_TIME, DECODE( (SELECT limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'IDLE_TIME'), 'DEFAULT', (select limit from dba_profiles c where c.profile = 'DEFAULT' AND resource_name = 'IDLE_TIME'), (select limit from dba_profiles b where b.profile = a.profile AND resource_name = 'IDLE_TIME')) IDLE_TIME FROM dba_profiles a order by profile

28 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Workaround SQL>create synonym gv$parameter for v$parameter; We are still working working Sungard to get this issue resolved

29 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Appworx

30 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Appworx has an issue with setting NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR Workaround Keep database at BYTE, but you might have problems to get multi bytes data across db link Insert into aw_master_stmts values (alter session set nls_length_semantics=byte,4);

31 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs SQL Developer

32 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Appworx has an issue with setting NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR Workaround Keep database at BYTE, but you might have problems to get multi bytes data across db link Insert into aw_master_stmts values (alter session set nls_length_semantics=byte,4);

33 Upgrade Pitfalls and Bugs Sql Developer has an issue with setting NLS_LENGTH_SEMANTICS=CHAR Workaround Get the lastest Sql Developer
