Do you wish to proceed with the relink [Yes]: Enter the name of your Oracle Applications environment file below. File Name [PROD.env]: Reading product executable information ... Enter list of products to link (‘all’ for all products) [all]: Generate specific executables for each selected product [No]?

Copy Files to Destinations

This task reads the product file driver files to determine the set of files to copy from the product tree to the common directories (such as AU_TOP or JAVA_TOP). • Java files are copied to JAVA_TOP • HTML files are copied to OAH_TOP • Media files are copied to OAM_TOP The directories for each of these variables are specified in the adovars.env file located in APPL_TOP/admin

Convert Character Set

UTF8 is the character set in NLS_LANG
Please enter the source character set [JA16EUC]:JA16EUC Please enter the target character set : UTF8 You are about to check your APPL_TOP for lossy conversion of files when converting from JA16EUC to UTF8. Run the check [Y] ? Y Converting from character set 'JA16EUC' to character set 'UTF8'.

Convert Character Set

AD Administration will create a manifest file under "/d02/prodappl/admin/prod/out" with the list of convertible files. If a file with that name already exists, it will be overwritten. You should use this manifest file later for character set conversion.

Please enter a name for the manifest file [admanifest.lst]:

Convert Character Set

Scan a CUSTOM directory for exceptions task: • Is similar to the Scan the APPL_TOP for exceptions task • Scans custom Applications directories rather than the APPL_TOP directory

Convert Character Set

• To avoid lossy conversions, run task 3 (Convert character set) only if admanifest_excp.lst has no entries • The task prompts you for the manifest file, created by either task 1 or task 2 • Before the conversion, the utility backs up the product source files and the APPL_TOP/admin source files • It saves product files in the <PROD>_TOP directories in the format <prod>_s_<char_set>.zip • It saves admin source files in the APPL_TOP/admin directory in the format admin_s_<char_set>.zip

Maintain Snapshot Information

There are two types of APPL_TOP snapshots: • Current view snapshots are created once and updated when appropriate to maintain a consistent view of the APPL_TOP contents • Named snapshots are the copies of current view snapshots at a particular time (not necessarily the latest current view snapshot) and are not updated

Maintain Snapshot Information

• You must run this task once for each APPL_TOP before you can apply any patch that contains a "compatible feature prereq" line on that APPL_TOP • A complete snapshot is required for the automatic prerequisite patch checking feature to operate • APPL_TOP snapshot information is stored in the AD_SNAPSHOTS, AD_SNAPSHOT_FILES, and AD_SNAPSHOT_BUGFIXES tables
