F Examples of Administrative Changes

This appendix provides examples of administrative changes that can be performed on an Oracle Fusion Middleware environment. It is a companion to Part VII, "Advanced Administration: Backup and Recovery" in this book, and to the Disaster Recovery section in Oracle Fusion Middleware High Availability Guide.

It contains the following topics:

F.1 How to Use This Appendix

Some administrative operations cause configuration changes to your Oracle Fusion Middleware environment. These are called administrative changes, and include deploying and undeploying applications, adding or deleting Managed Servers or components, changing ports, creating and deleting users, and changing passwords. As an administrator, you should be aware when administrative changes occur because you may need to back up your environment or perform some synchronization procedures.

This appendix provides examples of administrative changes, listed by component. You can use this as a guide for performing the following procedures:
