|Oracle® Application Server Upgrade and Compatibility Guide
10g (10.1.4.0.1) for Microsoft Windows
Part Number B28235-01
Use this chapter to verify that the upgrade to Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4.0.1) was successful and to decommission the 10g (9.0.4) or 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) Oracle Identity Management Oracle home.
This chapter contains the following sections:
Use the following procedure to verify that the upgrade was successful.
Verify that you can access the Application Server Control Console by entering the Application Server Control URL in your Web browser. Use the port number assigned during the 10g (10.1.4.0.1) installation.
Note:You can locate the URL for the 10g (10.1.4.0.1) Application Server Control Console by checking the contents of the following file in the 10g (10.1.4.0.1) Oracle home:
After you upgrade your Oracle Application Server instance, use the following passwords in the destination Oracle home:
To log in to the Application Server Control Console, use the
ias_admin password you defined during the installation of the destination Oracle home.
To log in to the OracleAS Web Cache Manager, use the OracleAS Web Cache
Administrator password you used in the OracleAS Web Cache source Oracle home.
Step 3 Test OracleAS Single Sign-On Connectivity
After the Identity Management upgrade is complete, log in to Oracle Application Server Single Sign-On as user ORCLADMIN. A successful login indicates that Oracle Application Server Single Sign-On and Oracle Internet Directory are functioning after the Identity Management upgrade.
In a browser, access the Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Application Server Control Console in the destination Infrastructure Oracle home by entering its URL. Ensure that you provide the correct host name and port number. For example:
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g displays the Farm page, with the Oracle Application Server 10g (10.1.4.0.1) Identity Management instance in the Standalone Instances section.
Click the link for the Identity Management instance.
The System Components page appears.
Verify that the status of the Oracle HTTP Server, Oracle Internet Directory, and Oracle Application Server Single Sign-On components is Up.
In the browser, access the ORASSO page by entering its URL. Ensure that you enter the correct host name and port number for the upgraded Oracle HTTP Server. For example:
The ORASSO page appears.
Click the Login link (in the upper right corner of the page).
A page appears with User Name and Password fields.
Enter ORCLADMIN in the User Name field, and the password you have selected for ORCLADMIN in the Password field.
The Oracle Application Server Single Sign-On Server Administration page appears, thus validating the basic operation of the upgraded Identity Management components (Oracle Application Server Single Sign-On and Oracle Internet Directory).
Step 4 Test Oracle Application Server Certificate Authority
If you have upgraded Oracle Application Server Certificate Authority (OCA), you can verify that the upgrade completed successfully by accessing the OCA User page.
Open your Web browser and enter the following URL:
Check to be sure that you can log in as a regular user and view the user's existing certificates. This ensures that OCA is working with Oracle Internet Directory and OracleAS Single Sign-On.
Note:After the upgrade, you will notice two OCA partner applications in the OracleAS Single Sign-On Partner Application administration page. One is the partner application for the 10g (9.0.4) OCA installation and the other is the partner application for the upgraded 10g (10.1.4.0.1) OCA installation.
The original partner application can be removed. The upgraded OCA will be running on port 6600 after upgrade, instead of port 4400.
After you upgrade your OracleAS Identity Management Oracle home, the source Oracle home can eventually be deinstalled. However, before you deinstall the source Oracle home, be sure to perform the following steps.
If you upgraded OracleAS Identity Management as part of a colocated Infrastructure, then you also upgraded the OracleAS Metadata Repository database to a supported database version.
After you upgrade the OracleAS Metadata Repository database using the OracleAS Upgrade Assistant, the datafiles, control files, and log files for the database remain in the source Oracle home. Before you deinstall or remove the Oracle home, you must first relocate the database files.
If there are application files or log files in the source Oracle home that are being referenced or used by the destination Oracle home, you should move them to another location before you decommission the source Oracle home, and, in the destination Oracle home, change any references to the files to the new location.
After you upgrade to Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4.0.1), the source OracleAS Identity Management instance that you upgraded remains in the list of OracleAS Single Sign-On partner applications.
From the command line, set the ORACLE_HOME environment variable and then run the following command:
DESTINATION_ORACLE_HOME\bin\ssoreg.bat -oracle_home_path path_to_oracle_home -site_name name_of_sso_site -config_mod_osso TRUE -mod_osso_url partner_app_URL -update_mode DELETE -config_file path_to_osso_config_file
Note that the
-config_file argument is necessary only when SSL is enabled.

Step 4 Remove the Source OracleAS Identity Management Instance from the OracleAS Farm
After you upgrade to Oracle Identity Management 10g (10.1.4.0.1), the source OracleAS Identity Management instance that you upgraded remains in the list of instances on the Application Server Control Console Farm page.
To remove the source instance from the farm and from the Farm page, use the following command in the source Oracle home:
See Also:Distributed Configuration Management Administrator's Guide for more information about the
"Introduction to Administration Tools" in the Oracle Application Server Administrator's Guide for more information about the Farm page in the Application Server Control Console
When you are certain that the upgrade was successful, you have all of the necessary backups, and have no plans to revert to the source Oracle home, you may elect to remove the files from the source Oracle home.
Use the Oracle Universal Installer to deinstall the instance.
