C Using Patch Assistant to Migrate from 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) to Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0)

This chapter contains the following sections:

Important Notes:

The information and procedures in this chapter apply only to users who have installed and configured Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0). If you are currently running Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0), then you must use this chapter to update your Oracle Fusion Middleware environment to Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) before you can patch your environment to Release 1 (11.1.1.4.0).

If you are already running Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) or a later patch set, then disregard this appendix.

The procedures in this chapter are for installing and configuring and migrating to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0). As a result, for all cross-references in this section, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.1 Overview of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) Patch Assistant

Patch Assistant enables you to migrate your existing configuration of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) components, used in conjunction with the 11.1.1.1.0 and 11.1.1.2.0 installations. Patch Assistant is not a complete software distribution. You must run this Patch Assistant over an existing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) installation. Patch Assistant is designed to work with all Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) products. You may see messages that an Oracle product is not present in a domain or instance. This message is informational and does not indicate an error.

Refer to Table C-7 for the Oracle Fusion Middleware components supported by Patch Assistant.

Note:

Patch Assistant is used only for updating Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) Domains and Oracle Instances. If you are not updating your existing 11.1.1.1.0 domains and instances, you are not required to use Patch Assistant.

Patch Assistant helps to migrate the following from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0):

  • Oracle Fusion Middleware Domains

    Note:

    It is required that you migrate the entire Oracle WebLogic domain. When the domain is migrated, all components in the domain are also migrated.

  • Oracle Instances

  • Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) database schema created using Oracle Repository Creation Utility (RCU)

    Note:

    You must migrate both the schema and the middle tier.

When you run Patch Assistant tool, the configuration files contained in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) domain and Instance directories are copied to the new directories in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) installation. The Middleware home is the full path of the Oracle directory that contains the Oracle Fusion Middleware installation, and MW_HOME will be used in this documentation to refer to the directory where the product is installed.

Note:

MW_HOME must be replaced with the full path name of the installed Oracle Fusion Middleware instance.

C.2 Migration Process

Figure C-1 illustrates the migration process. Review this chart to get familiar with the steps you are required to take, based on your existing Oracle Fusion Middleware environment.

Figure C-1 Flow Chart of the Migration Process

Surrounding text describes Figure C-1 .

C.3 Preparing to Migrate

This section contains important information you should read before you migrate.

C.3.1 Evaluating and Reviewing your Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) Environment

The first step in the migrating process is to evaluate your current Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) environment. During the migration process, the topology of the deployment must not change, the port configuration must be retained, and there must be minimal changes in namespaces. All the changes in the namespaces are encapsulated by the properties in the patchMaster.properties file, which is included in the fmw11gR1ps1_patchassist.zip file.

For a list of products included in this patch set, see Section C.4.7, "Oracle Fusion Middleware Components Supported by Patch Assistant".

C.3.2 Preparing to Migrate Your Configuration

This section discusses the following topics:

C.3.2.1 Prerequisites

This section describes the general and product-specific prerequisites for running Patch Assistant.

This section discuss the following topics:

C.3.2.1.1 General Prerequisites

The following are the general prerequisites for running Patch Assistant:

  • Ensure that Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) is installed and configured.

  • Ensure that you install 11.1.1.2.0 on the same operating system used by the 11.1.1.1.0 installation.

  • Ensure that the system configuration meets the recommended system configuration described in your product documentation. For more information, see http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_certification.html.

  • Ensure that you have Apache Ant 1.7.0 and Java JDKs (Java SE 6 1.6.0_11 and jrockit_160_05_R27.6.2-20), which are packaged with Oracle WebLogic Server.

    Note:

    If you are using Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Virtual Directory, Oracle HTTP Server, or Oracle Web Cache as standalone Oracle Fusion Middleware installations, you must install and configure Apache Ant separately. For more information, see Installing Ant at http://ant.apache.org/manual/installlist.html and Section C.3.2.3, "Setting Up the Patch Assistant Environment".

  • Make a detailed note of the topology used for the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) installation.

  • Ensure that you do not change the port configuration and instance names in your existing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) installation.

  • Ensure that the environment variables for tmp and temp directories for Microsoft Windows are set, as described in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.

  • Back up your Oracle software, inventory, schema, and domain before applying this patch set, or before making any other changes to your existing Oracle software. Refer to your product administrator's guide for instructions on backing up your Oracle software and inventory. For more information, see the "Advanced Administration: Backup and Recovery" part in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.

  • On Windows, it is recommended that you edit the patchMaster.properties file in a Notepad. If you are using any other text editor, such as Windows WordPad, then save the file as Text Document. Do not save the file in Rich Text Format.

  • On Windows, you must delete the service name for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) before installing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) because both the installations use the same service name. To do so, run the following Ant task on the command line:

    ant master-opmn-delete-service
    

    Enter the required information when prompted by the Ant task.

    Note:

    If you want to abort the migration and revert to the 11.1.1.1.0 deployment, run the following Ant task on the command line:

    ant master-opmn-create-service
    
  • Heterogeneous nodes in a Cluster (one in 11.1.1.2.0, other in 11.1.1.2.0) is not supported during the migration process. You must migrate all nodes to 11.1.1.2.0 before environment can be used.

C.3.2.1.2 Product-Specific Prerequisites

Depending on your Oracle Fusion Middleware component, you may have to meet additional prerequisites as follows:

Oracle Fusion Middleware Audit Framework

For Oracle Fusion Middleware Audit Framework, the audit policy is configured for Java components in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0), you must export the configuration before running Patch Assistant, as follows:

  1. Log in to Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Fusion Middleware Control.

  2. Expand WebLogic Domain on the left pane, and select your domain.

    Your selected domain page is displayed.

  3. From the WebLogic Domain, select Security, and then Audit Policy.

    The Audit Policy page is displayed.

  4. Select the Audit Policy, and click Export.

  5. Save the AuditConfiguration file to your machine.

Oracle Directory Integration Platform

For the Oracle Directory Integration Platform, do the following:

  1. Ensure that your Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) Oracle Internet Directory is up and running in SSL No-Auth mode.

  2. Extend the Oracle WebLogic domain created during the Oracle Internet Directory 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) installation, by running the following command:

    Windows

    config.cmd (Located at: ORACLE_HOME\bin)

    UNIX

    config.sh (Located at: ORACLE_HOME/bin)

    The Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard appears. Enter the Oracle Internet Directory 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) connection details and credentials.

  3. Stop the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) domain.

Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Virtual Directory

Depending on your installation, complete the following prerequisites:

  • If your 11.1.1.1.0 configuration has Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Virtual Directory created with a new Oracle WebLogic domain, then choose the Create a new WebLogic domain option on the Welcome screen of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Configuration Wizard when configuring the 11.1.1.2.0 domain.

    During the configuration of 11.1.1.2.0, if you select the Create a new WebLogic domain option, then you must deselect Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Virtual Directory, and select Oracle Directory Services Manager.

  • If your Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Virtual Directory are not registered to any Oracle WebLogic domain in your 11.1.1.1.0 configuration, then 11.1.1.2.0 configuration is not required. You must set the property patchMaster.Oracleinstancenewlist in the patchMaster.properties file to a new directory for the instance. Ensure that you retain the same instance name used in 11.1.1.1.0.

  • If your 11.1.1.1.0 configuration has Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Virtual Directory registered to an existing Oracle WebLogic domain, then 11.1.1.2.0 configuration is not required. You must set the property patchMaster.Oracleinstancenewlist in the patchMaster.properties file to a new directory and register the instance with the existing 11.1.1.2.0 WebLogic domain using Ant target. Ensure that you retain the same instance name used in 11.1.1.1.0.

Oracle WebCenter

To migrate Oracle WebCenter, you may choose either of these approaches:

  • Keep two parallel instances of Oracle WebCenter, that is 11.1.1.1.0 as well as 11.1.1.2.0. To do this, you must perform a complete installation of Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0. You can then migrate your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 data into the new WebCenter instance by using the export and import utilities. This approach enables you to use both instances of Oracle WebCenter, if required. For example, you may run the two instances in parallel to minimize downtime or to ensure that the 11.1.1.2.0 instance is set up to the same level as the 11.1.1.1.0 instance before you switch over to the 11.1.1.2.0 instance completely.

    For information more informatio, refer to the following resources in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library on the Oracle Technology Network (OTN):

    • Refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebCenter for information about how to install Oracle WebCenter 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0).

    • Refer to the "Managing Export, Import, Backup, and Recovery of WebCenter" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter for information about export and import utilities for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0).

  • Migrate the Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 repository and mid-tier completely to Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0. This approach preserves your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 repository data and enables you to reuse the repository.

    This guide describes the tasks required to implement this migration approach for Oracle WebCenter.

Oracle Portal

Before updating, you should backup your OmniPortlet and WebClipping customizations. For more information, see Section 5.3.3.1, "Save Your OmniPortlet and WebClipping Customizations".

C.3.2.2 Extracting the Contents of Patch Assistant

You can download the fmw11gR1ps1_patchassist.zip, which is included in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 Patch Set 1 Patch Scripts media. The zip file is available in the same media pack as Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) on Oracle Technology Network (OTN) at the following URL: http://oracle.com/technology

After downloading this zip file, extract its contents to its own location, in your local machine, where the old and new Oracle Fusion Middleware components are installed. Ensure that the same operating system is used for the 11.1.1.1.0 and 11.1.1.2.0 installations. The zip file includes the following files:

  • README – Describes the environment.

  • patchMaster.properties - The user input file.

  • build.xml – The master build file. Each Oracle Fusion Middleware component has its own build.xml file.

C.3.2.3 Setting Up the Patch Assistant Environment

To set up the Patch Assistant environment for Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0), you must set up ANT_HOME, add it to your PATH, set the JAVA_HOME and the permgen size.

For example, on Windows:

set ANT_HOME=MW_HOME\modules\org.apache.ant_1.7.0
set PATH=%PATH%;%ANT_HOME%\bin
set JAVA_HOME=MW_HOME\jdk160_14_R27.6.4-18
set ANT_OPTS=-Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=512m

For example, on UNIX:

setenv MW_HOME ##set mw home here##
setenv ANT_HOME $MW_HOME/modules/org.apache.ant_1.7.0
setenv PATH $ANT_HOME/bin:$PATH
setenv JAVA_HOME $MW_HOME/jdk160_14_R27.6.5-32
setenv ANT_OPTS "-Xmx512M -XX:MaxPermSize=512m"

C.3.2.4 Stopping Oracle Fusion Middleware

Before you run Patch Assistant, you must stop the following:

  • Oracle WebLogic Server

  • Administration Servers

  • Managed Servers

  • Oracle Management Agent

  • Java EE Applications

  • High Availability Environments

For more information, see the Starting and Stopping Oracle Fusion Middleware chapter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.

C.3.2.5 Setting Logging Properties

You can use the log file to verify the migration or to detect any errors after running Patch Assistant. Patch Assistant creates a time stamp file in the Patch Assistant home. You can specify the following logging levels:

  • info (This is the default setting)

  • error

  • warning

  • verbose

  • debug

Note:

The debug and the verbose options may display sensitive information in the logs, and they are not recommended for typical use.

Before you use your log file, you must set the logging properties as follows:

Open the patchMaster.properties file in a text editor, and update the following properties:

# Description: Specifies the directory where the log files go
patchMaster.Logdir=${patchMaster.Dir}

Specifies the default location where the log file is saved.

# Description: Specifies the logging level to be recorded in the log file
patchMaster.Loglevel=info

Sets the logging level.

To override the default patchMaster.properties Log level, run the command as shown in the following example:

ant -DpatchMaster.Loglevel=error

Note:

You can override the patchMaster.properties by setting properties on the command line. If the debug or verbose options are used on the command line, they override the logging level property set in the patchMaster.properties file. For more information, see Section C.4.6.1, "Overriding Properties Set in the patchMaster.properties File".

C.4.2 Migration Procedure

Migrating your existing configuration from 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.2.0 involves the following tasks:

  1. Stopping the Old Domain

  2. Installing Oracle Software for 11.1.1.2.0

  3. Downloading Patch Assistant

  4. Migrating the Schema

  5. Creating a WebLogic Domain for 11.1.1.2.0

  6. Migrating the Domain

  7. Migrating an Instance

  8. Registering the Instance

  9. Starting or Stopping the 11.1.1.2.0 Domain

  10. Completing Post-Migration Tasks

  11. Decommissioning the 11.1.1.1.0 Installation

C.4.2.1 Stopping the Old Domain

To stop the old 11.1.1.1.0 domain, complete the following steps:

Note:

You can also use Fusion Middleware Control, Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console, or WLST or OPMN commands to stop the Oracle Fusion Middleware components.

  1. Open the patchMaster.properties file (Located in your patchMaster directory) in a text editor, and specify the following properties in the patchMaster.properties file, as applicable:

    patchMaster.Oraclehomeold
    patchMaster.Oracleinstanceoldlist
    patchMaster.Domainadminhost
    patchMaster.Domainadminport
    

    If the patchMaster.Domainadminhost property is not specified, the default value local host is used. If the patchMaster.Domainadminport property is not specified, the default value 7001 is used. After editing the properties, save the file and close. For more information about properties in the patchMaster.properties file, see Section C.4.6, "Properties in the patchMaster.properties File".

    Note:

    If you have multiple Oracle products installed, then you must run Patch Assistant once for each product and setting the patchMaster.Oraclehomeold for each product.

  2. Run the following command on the command line:

    ant master-stop-domain-old
    
  3. Enter the domain user name and password, when prompted.

C.4.2.2 Installing Oracle Software for 11.1.1.2.0

You must install Oracle WebLogic Server, Repository Creation Utility (RCU), and Oracle products for 11.1.1.2.0:

  • Create a new Middleware home directory.

  • Install Repository Creation Utility.

  • Perform a software-only installation of the product bundle.

Ensure that your system environment meets the general installation requirements for Oracle Fusion Middleware. Some Oracle Fusion Middleware Components require schemas that must be installed in an Oracle database. It is recommended that you do not install any new schemas for your existing 11g R1 (11.1.1.1.0) products. However, in the same environment, you can add new products for which you may have to create the appropriate schemas. For such products, you can create and load the schemas in your database by using RCU. Ensure that you have a supported Oracle database up and running. See http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/ias/files/fusion_certification.html for more information.

Ensure that same instance name used in 11.1.1.1.0 and 11.1.1.2.0.

Note:

When you migrate the mid-tier, you are installing a fresh mid-tier in your new 11.1.1.2.0 environment. Patch Assistant migrates the middle tier configuration to this new instance.

For information about the installation process, including Cluster scenarios, see Section C.4.4, "Installation Process".

C.4.2.3 Downloading Patch Assistant

For information about downloading Patch Assistant and extracting its contents, see Section C.3.2.2, "Extracting the Contents of Patch Assistant".

C.4.2.4 Migrating the Schema

Before you can update the repository, ensure that your 11.1.1.1.0 domain is configured and it includes tables populated from running the Repository Creation Utility (RCU).

Note:

You can choose to install Oracle Content Server while installing Oracle WebCenter, or later by performing a standalone installation. In Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.1.0, if you performed a standalone installation of Oracle Content Server, then before you migrate the schemas, you must rename the Oracle Content Server's schema so that it contains the standard suffix, OCSERVER. For information, see Section C.4.2.4.1, "Renaming the Oracle Content Server Schema"

To migrate the schema, complete the following steps:

  1. Open the patchMaster.properties file (Located in your patchMaster directory) in a text editor, and specify the following schema-related properties in the patchMaster.properties file:

    patchMaster.Schemaurl
    patchMaster.Schemauser
    patchMaster.Schemaprefix
    patchMaster.Mwhomenew
    patchMaster.Mwhomeold
    patchMaster.Componentlist
    

    Note:

    The patchMaster.Componentlist property is optional, if you are migrating the schema for a single component. For Oracle Portal, in addition to the above properties, you must specify the patchMaster.Oraclehomenew property.

    In patchMaster.Componentlist, include Oracle Content Server as a component only if you created the server's schema using RCU. If you did not create the schema using RCU, then list the server in patchMaster.Componentlist only after completing the schema renaming process described in section Section C.4.2.4.1, "Renaming the Oracle Content Server Schema"

    After editing the properties, save the file and close. For more information about properties in the patchMaster.properties file, see Section C.4.6, "Properties in the patchMaster.properties File".

  2. Run the following command on the command line to migrate the database schema, and provide the required user name and password when prompted:

    ant master-patch-schema
    

    Patch Assistant can only migrate one set of component schemas that share the same prefix. If different components in your deployment have different prefixes and you have multiple schemas sharing a repository, then you must invoke Patch Assistant multiple times, once for each prefix.

    Note:

    If you migrate the Metadata Services schema for one component, it also affects all the other components using the same Metadata Services schema. If you are using Oracle SOA, you must enter ant -q master-patch-schema on the command line to migrate the schema.

During the schema migration, exceptions may occur. Some of these exceptions can be ignored. The following example shows one such exception:

[java] SEVERE: Error while registering Oracle JDBC Diagnosability MBean.
     [java] java.security.AccessControlException: access denied (javax.management.MBeanTrustPermission register)
     [java]     at java.security.AccessControlContext.checkPermission(AccessControlContext.java:323)

Note:

Patch Assistant ensures that all required properties are set for each of the operations.

Patch Assistant attempts to migrate all Oracle Fusion Middleware components. If a component is not installed or configured in the deployment, log messages indicating these attempts are generated.

Log files specific to Oracle Portal migration are generated in the upgrade.log and precheck.log files in the ORACLE_HOME/upgrade/logs directory (UNIX).

C.4.2.4.1 Renaming the Oracle Content Server Schema

In Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.1.0, if you performed a standalone installation Oracle Content Server, then before migrating the schemas, you must rename the Oracle Content Server's schema so that it contains the standard suffix, OCSERVER. You must also rebuild indexes on Oracle Content Server.

To rename the Oracle Content Server schema:

  1. Create a new schema (for example, DEV_OCSERVER) using the RCU. Ensure that you use the same password as that of your existing Oracle Content Server schema.

  2. Export the existing schema (for example, IDC_IR10).

  3. Import data into the new schema you created (DEV_OCSERVER).

    Note:

    Before you import data into the newly created schema, ensure that all the seeded database objects are removed from that schema.

  4. Open the config/config.cfg file from the installation directory of your Oracle Content Server.

  5. Change the Oracle Content Server schema name listed in the configuration file to the newly created schema. (for example, rename IDC_IR10 to DEV_OCSERVER)

  6. Access the Oracle Content Server administration console and ensure that the data exists.

After renaming the Oracle Content Server schema, you must migrate the schema, as described in the beginning of this section.

After migrating the schemas, you must rebuild the indexes on Oracle Content Server.

To re-create the index:

  1. Log on to Oracle Content Server as a system administrator.

  2. Access Repository Manager from the Admin Console by navigating to Administration > Admin Applets > Repository Manager.

  3. Click the Indexer tab.

  4. In the Collection Builder Cycle section, click Start. If the collection rebuild is already in progress, do not choose to restart the operation. First stop the collection rebuild operation, and then start the operation. Note that the collection rebuild operation is a time-consuming task.

ant master-opmn-create-service

Enter the required information when prompted by the Ant task.

C.4.3 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Fusion Middleware Components

After running the Patch Assistant, you must manually configure some of the Oracle Fusion Middleware Components:

C.4.3.1 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Fusion Middleware Audit Framework

After running Patch Assistant for Oracle Fusion Middleware Audit Framework, you must complete the following tasks:

C.4.3.1.1 Update the Translation Table in Audit Schema

If the IAU_DISP_NAMES_TL audit event translation data is defined in the 11.1.1.1.0, then you can migrate them to the 11.1.1.2.0, by completing the following steps:

  1. Run SQLPlus, and connect to the database as the system user. For example:

    sqlplus sys as sysdba
    
  2. Run SQL commands in the following order:

    SQL> alter session set current_schema=<Name_of_Your_Audit_Schema>; 
    SQL> delete from iau_disp_names_tl; 
    SQL> @disp_names.sql;
    

    disp_names.sql is located at fmw11gR1ps1_patchassist\Audit folder.

    Note:

    To avoid scrambled characters, a Unicode-supported database is required to store the translation data. In addition, to ensure proper character set conversion between SQL*Plus and the database server, a compatible character set, such as UTF8 or AL32UTF8, needs to be set for the NLS_LANG environment variable before running disp_names.sql.

    For the complete list of legal NLS_LANG values, see the Oracle Database Documentation Library at:

    http://www.oracle.com/technology/documentation/database.html
    
C.4.3.1.2 Migrating Audit Policy Configuration for Java Components

If the audit policy is configured for Java components in 11.1.1.1.0, you must import the configuration file after running Patch Assistant, as follows:

  1. Log in to the Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Fusion Middleware Control.

  2. Expand the WebLogic Domain on the left pane, and select your domain.

    Your selected domain page is displayed.

    The Audit Policy page is displayed.

  4. Select the Audit Policy, and click Import.

  5. Click Browse, and specify the path where your AuditConfiguration file is located.

  6. Click Ok.

C.4.3.1.3 Creating the Audit Data Source

If the audit data source is used in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.1.0, then you must re-create the audit data store used in 11.1.1.2.0. To do so, perform the following steps:

  1. Log in to the Oracle WebLogic Server administration console:

    http://host:7001/console
    
  2. Under JDBC, click the Data Sources link.

    The Summary of JDBC Data Sources page is displayed.

  3. Click New to create a new data source.

    The Create a New JDBC Data Source page is displayed.

  4. Enter the following details for the new data source:

    • Name: Enter a name such as Audit Data Source-0

    • JNDI Name: jdbc/AuditDB

    • Database Type: Oracle

    • Database Driver: Oracle's Driver (Thin XA) Versions: 9.0.1, 9.0.2, 10, 11

    If deploying to a managed cluster server, check AdminServer. This selection ensures that the data source is listed in the audit store when switching from file to database store.

  5. Click Next.

    The Transaction Options page is displayed.

  6. Click Next.

    The Connection Properties page is displayed.

  7. In the Connection Properties page, enter the following information:

    • Host Name: Enter the hostname of the database.

    • Port: Enter the database port.

    • Database User Name: This is the name of the audit schema that you created in RCU. The suffix is always IAU for the audit schema. For example, if you gave the prefix as test, then the schema name is test_iau.

    • Password: This is the password for the audit schema that you created in RCU.

    Click Next.

  8. The next page lists the JDBC driver class and database details. Accept the default values, and click Test Configuration to test the connection. If you see the message "Connection established Successfully", click Next. If it displays any error, go back and check the connection details.

  9. In the Select Targets page, select the servers where this data source must be configured, and click Finish.

C.4.3.2 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Business Intelligence Discoverer

After running Patch Assistant, ensure that all your existing Oracle BI Discoverer Plus OLAP users have proper access privileges to the Oracle BI Discoverer 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) Discoverer Catalog. To set proper access privileges, perform the following tasks using the command-line utilities:

C.4.3.2.1 Authorizing a New User to Access the Discoverer Catalog

Use the following commands to authorize one or more users so they can access the Discoverer Catalog:

java -classpath path_to_d4o_jar_file load . java -classpath path_to_d4o_jar_file authorize -h hostname -po portname 
     -sid database_SID -p d4osyspasswd -u user

For example. on Windows:

java -classpath C:\temp\d4o.jar load . java -classpath C:\temp\d4o.jar authorize -h sys42.example.com -po 1521
     -sid disco_db1 -p nPword432 -u jones

For example, on UNIX:

java -classpath /home/abc/temp/d4o.jar load . java -classpath /home/abc/temp/d4o.jar authorize -h sys42.example.com -po 1521
     -sid disco_db1 -p nPword432 -u jones

In this example, you must run the load command only once before authorizing any number of users. For example, if you want to authorize 10 users, run the load command once, and then run the authorize command once for each user.

C.4.3.2.2 Updating the Privileges of an Existing Discoverer Catalog User

To update the user's privileges to access all private and shared folders, use the following command:

java -classpath path_to_d4o_jar_file updatePrivileges -h hostname -po portname
     -sid database_SID -p d4osyspasswd -u user

For example, on Windows:

java -classpath C:\temp\d4o.jar updatePrivileges -h sys42.example.com -po 1521
     -sid disco_db1 -p nPword432 -u jones

For example, on UNIX:

java -classpath /home/abc/d4o.jar updatePrivileges -h sys42.example.com -po 1521
     -sid disco_db1 -p nPword432 -u jones

In this example, if you specify the -u option, then the privileges are upgraded only for that user. If you do not specify the -u option, then the privileges are upgraded for all users.

C.4.3.3 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Directory Integration Platform

After running Patch Assistant, start your Oracle Directory Integration Platform 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) domain. For more information, see the "Starting and Stopping Oracle Fusion Middleware " in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide and, then complete the following steps:

  1. Log in to Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

  2. In the Oracle Enterprise Manager home page, select Farm, and then Agent-Monitored Targets.

    The Agent-Monitored Targets page is displayed.

  3. From the Targets table, select the target used by the Oracle Directory Integration Platform, and click Configure.

  7. Log out of Oracle Enterprise Manager.

  8. Log in to Oracle Enterprise Manager again.

  9. Unregister the ASInstance created during Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) Directory Integration Platform configuration by running the following command:

    Windows:

    ORACLE_INSTANCE\bin\opmnctl unregisterinstance -adminHost -adminPort -adminUserName
    

    UNIX:

    $ORACLE_IMSTANCE/bin/opmnctl unregisterinstance -adminHost -adminPort -adminUserName
    
  10. Delete the ASInstance created during Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) Directory Integration Platform Configuration by running the following command:

    Windows:

    ORACLE_HOME\opmn\bin\opmnctl deleteinstance -oracleInstance <Oracle instance root directory>
    

    UNIX:

    $ORACLE_HOME/opmn/bin/opmnctl deleteinstance -oracleInstance <Oracle instance root directory>
    

C.4.3.4 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Identity Federation

After running Patch Assistant, your Credential Store Framework (CSF) is not migrated to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0), if you are using an LDAP store. You must migrate the credentials manually from a source repository to a target repository by using the WLST command migrateSecurityStore.

For information, see "Migrating with the Script migrateSecurityStore" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library on OTN.

C.4.3.5 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Platform Security Services

You must manually migrate your existing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) policy store because the corresponding schema changes when you install Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0). During this migration, any existing 11.1.1.1.0 installation policies are updated to 11.1.1.2.0 policies. You will find the existing 11.1.1.1.0 data provisioned in the 11.1.1.2.0 LDAP store.

However, you must redeploy your applications after installing Oracle Fusion Middleware (11.1.1.2.0), but the provisioned policies are already in the migrated LDAP store.

Note:

When redeploying your applications, you should not migrate the policies as they already exist in the policy store.

Note that Oracle WebLogic Server domains are containers of application policy data that is used by Oracle Platform Security Services. Typically, a domain is identified by its name, as in the following example:

Relative DN(RDN)cn=MyDomain,cn=JpsContext,cn=JpsTestNode

The Relative DN (RDN) cn=MyDomain is the node on the LDAP server that corresponds to a domain. All data under such a domain, including Credential Store and Policy Store data, is preserved.

Note:

If you are using Oracle WebLogic Server LDAP, then you must re-create the user. For more information, see "Security Data Migration" section in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developing Security Providers for Oracle WebLogic Server in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library

Migration Scenarios

If you are migrating Oracle Platform Security Services 11.1.1.1.0 Policy Store to 1.1.1.2.0 Policy Store, consider the following migration scenarios:

C.4.3.5.1 Migrating File-Based Policy and Credential Store

To migrate your existing file-based policy and credential store from 11.1.1.1.0 to 11.1.1.2.0, you must install Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0), which is configured to use the file-based policy (XML), credential (wallet) stores, and then migrate the credentials and application policies by using the WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) command migrateSecurityStore. For more information, see the "Migrating Credentials with the Command migrateSecurityStore" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.4.3.5.2 Migrating Oracle Internet Directory Policy and Credential Store and Reusing an Existing Oracle Internet Directory Server

To migrate your existing Oracle Internet Directory policy and credential store from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0), start the servers in your Oracle Fusion Middleware domain and then complete the following steps:

Note:

Ensure that your Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) installation has applications deployed on a single domain and configured with LDAP or credential store. In addition, make sure that you do not have any resource catalog information provisioned.

  1. Reconfigure the LDAP authenticator to use the same LDAP server used in the 11.1.1.1.0 installation. For information, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

    Note:

    For information on reconfiguring the LDAP authenticator to use the same LDAP server used in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 installation, see the "Reassociating the Identity Store with an External LDAP" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

  2. Update the Java Platform Security (JPS) LDAP schema in the LDAP store by using the WLST reassociateSecurityStore command. The reassociation creates a temporary node under a pre-existing jps root node. The temporary data is the domain, you specified during reassociation. The domain needs to be a new temporary name and the jpsroot should have the same name that contains the domain you are migrating from 11.1.1.1.0.

    For information, see "reassociateSecurityStore" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

    This command creates a temporary domain that will be deleted later. For example:

    reassociateSecurityStore(domain="ps1_tmp_domain",admin="cn=orcladmin", password="welcome1", ldapurl="ldap://example.com:3060", servertype="OID", jpsroot="cn=jpsroot_r1_name")
    

    Note:

    Set a temporary name for the domain, and ensure that the jpsroot has the same name as in 11.1.1.1.0.

  3. Ensure that the Oracle WebLogic Administration Server is stopped to change the server configuration. To stop the server, run the following command:

    Windows:

    MW_HOME\user_projects\domains\<domain_name>\bin\stopWebLogic.cmd
           username password admin_url
    

    UNIX:

    $ MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/<domain_name>/bin/stopWeblogic.sh 
           username password admin_url
    
  4. Rebuild the Oracle Internet Directory catalog by running the following catalog commands from the Oracle Internet Directory machine:

    Note:

    Before you start using the Oracle Identity Management command-line tools, you must configure your environment. This involves setting the appropriate environment variables as follows:

    • ORACLE_HOME - The location of non-writable files in your LDAP-based identity store installation.

    • ORACLE_INSTANCE - The location of writable files in your LDAP-based identity store installation.

    • TNS_ADMIN - The location of tnsnames.ora file in your Oracle home.

      Ensure that the tnsnames.ora file (Located at ORACLE_HOME/network/admin) contains the conn_str that will be used in the catalog command.

    • PATH - Add the following directory locations to your PATH:

      ORACLE_HOME/bin
      ORACLE_HOME/ldap/bin
      ORACLE_HOME/ldap/admin
      

    Drop the catalog first before re-creating it as follows:

    catalog connect="conn_str" delete=true attribute= createtimestamp
    catalog connect="conn_str" delete=true attribute= modifytimestamp
    catalog connect="conn_str" delete=true attribute= orclJpsResourceName 
    catalog connect="conn_str" delete=true attribute= orclJPSObjGUID 
    catalog connect="conn_str" delete=true attribute= orclJpsResourceTypeActionNames
    

    Then add the following:

    catalog connect="conn_str" add=true attribute= createtimestamp 
    catalog connect="conn_str" add=true attribute= modifytimestamp
    catalog connect="conn_str" add=true attribute= orclJpsResourceName
    catalog connect="conn_str" add=true attribute= orclJPSObjGUID
    catalog connect="conn_str" add=true attribute= orclJpsResourceTypeActionNames
    

    For more information, see "Performing Bulk Operations" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

  5. Delete the temporary domain, created in step 1, by performing the following:

    1. Disable the Server Entry Cache. For more information, see "Tuning Recommendations for Server Entry Cache" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

    2. Stop Oracle Internet Directory by running the following command:

      Windows

      ORACLE_INSTANCE\bin\opmnctl stopall
      

      UNIX

      ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/opmnctl stopall
      
    3. Run the following command:

      bulkdelete connect=”connect string” basedn=”cn=ps1_tmp_domain,cn=JPSContext,cn=jpsroot_r1_name”
      

      Note:

      Do not use JXplorer or any other LDAP browser to delete the JPS root node.

      For more information, see "Deleting Entries or Attributes of Entries by Using bulkdelete" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

    4. Start Oracle Internet Directory by running the following command:

      Windows

      ORACLE_INSTANCE\bin\opmnctl startall
      

      UNIX

      ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/opmnctl startall
      
    5. Enable the Server Entry Cache. For more information, see the "Tuning Recommendations for Server Entry Cache" section and the "Attributes of the Instance-Specific Configuration Entry" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle Internet Directory in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

    6. Stop and start Oracle Internet Directory by running the following commands:

      Windows

      ORACLE_INSTANCE\bin\opmnctl stopall
      ORACLE_INSTANCE\bin\opmnctl startall
      

      UNIX

      ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/opmnctl stopall
      ORACLE_INSTANCE/bin/opmnctl startall
      
  6. Open the jps-config.xml file (located in your MW_HOME\user_projects\domains\<DomainName>\config\fmwconfig directory) in a text editor and replace the 11.1.1.2.0 domain name with 11.1.1.1.0 domain name. For example, replace cn=ps1_tmp_domain with cn=R1_domain_name.

  7. Migrate the default system policies from the XML store to the LDAP store by using the WLST Command migrateSecurityStore.

    For more information, see the "Migrating Credentials with the Command migrateSecurityStore" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

    In the jps-config.xml file, add the entries to specify the source and the destination source JPS context. The source JPS context must be the one that uses the XML store as the policy store, and the destination JPS context must be the one that uses the LDAP store. For example, add the following entries in the jps-config.xml file:

    <jpsContext name="filestore"> 
       <serviceInstanceRef ref="policystore.xml"/>
    </jpsContext>
    <jpsContext name="ldapstore"> 
       <serviceInstanceRef ref="policystore.ldap"/>
    </jpsContext>
    

    Ensure that the policystore.xml service instance in jps-config.xml file refers to the shipped system-jazn-data.xml file (out-of-the-box), as in the following example:

    <serviceInstance location="./system-jazn-data.xml" provider="policystore.xml.provider" name="policystore.xml">
                <description>File Based Policy Store Service Instance</description>
            </serviceInstance>
    

    Migrate the system policies by using the WLST migrateSecurityStore command, as shown in the following example:

    migrateSecurityStore(type="globalPolicies", configFile="<domain level jpsconfig.xml file loc>", src="filestore" ,dst="ldapstore")
    

    For more information about the migrating system policies, see "Migrating Policies to the Domain Policy Store" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Security Guide in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

  8. Ensure that the LDAP server contains the Role Categories entry under your application policy node.

    1. Run the ldapsearch command to search for this Role Categories entry from the Oracle Internet Directory machine:

      LDAP_OH/bin/ldapsearch -h <host> -p <port> -D "<Admin DN>" -w password -b "cn=Role Categories,cn=<app name>,cn=<domain name>,cn=JpsContext,cn=<jpsroot name>" -s base "(objectclass=*)"
      


      Where LDAP_OH/bin is the OID/IdM IDM_ORACLE_HOME/bin directory.

      Example:

      LDAP_OH/bin/ldapsearch -h oid.example.com -p 3060 -D "cn=orcladmin" -w password -b "cn=Role Categories,cn=appname,cn=domainname,cn=JpsContext,cn=jpsroot" -s base "(objectclass=*)"
      
      

      For detailed syntax, see the "ldapsearch" topic in the Oracle Fusion Middleware User Reference for Oracle Identity Management in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

      Note:

      If the Role Categories entry is not available, the following message is displayed:

      ldap_search: No such object
      
    2. If the Role Categories entry is not present, create an LDIF file named rolecat.ldif with the following content:

      dn: cn=Role Categories,cn=<app name>,cn=<domain name>,cn=JPSContext,cn=<jpsroot name>
      objectclass: top
      objectclass: orclContainer
      cn: Role Categories
      

      Example:

      dn: cn=Role Categories,cn=webcenter,cn= R1_domain_name,cn=JPSContext,cn=jpsroot_r1_name 
      objectclass: top
      objectclass: orclContainer
      cn: Role Categories
      
    3. Run the ldapadd command to add this node to the application policy store as follows:

      LDAP_OH/bin/ldapadd -p <port> -h <host> -D "<Admin DN>" -w <password> -vf rolecat.ldif 
      


      Where LDAP_OH/bin is the OID/IdM IDM_ORACLE_HOME/bin directory.

      Example:

      LDAP_OH/bin/ldapadd -p 3060 -h oid.example.com -D "cn=orcladmin" -w password -vf rolecat.ldif
      

      For detailed syntax, see the "ldapadd" topic in the Oracle Fusion Middleware User Reference for Oracle Identity Management in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

      Note:

      If the node exists, the output of the ldapadd command indicates that the object already exists.

    Note:

    The ldapadd command for Role Categories must be run for every application that uses LDAP as policy store.

  9. Start the Oracle WebLogic Administration Server, as shown in the following example:

    MW_HOME/user_projects/domains/domain_name/bin/startWebLogic.sh
             -Dweblogic.management.username=weblogic
             -Dweblogic.management.password=password
    

    For more information, see "Starting and Stopping Oracle Fusion Middleware" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.

  10. Redeploy any user applications that were deployed in 11.1.1.1.0.

For information about migrating the Oracle Internet Directory Policy and Credential Store (CSF), see Section C.4.3.5.2, "Migrating Oracle Internet Directory Policy and Credential Store and Reusing an Existing Oracle Internet Directory Server".

C.4.3.7 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle SOA

After running Patch Assistant, you must perform the following:

Notes:

Service Engine configuration has moved from file to the database in 11.1.1.2.0.

The procedures in this chapter are for installing and configuring Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0). As a result, for all cross-references in this section, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

  1. Re-deploy your J2EE applications, including TaskDetail Application used in Human Workflow Applications. For more information, see "Deploying SOA Composite Applications" chapter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

  2. Reconfigure any changes made to configuration files (For example: soa-infra-config) and component-level configuration files in 11.1.1.1.0 must be reconfigured for 11.1.1.2.0 using the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control.

  3. Reconfigure the log level settings using the Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control. For more information, see "Configuring Logging" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

  4. Re-create the seeding of the Workflow users.

  5. Reconfigure the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for the SOA composite application. For more information, see "Securing SOA Composite Applications" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

  6. If you have configured the Oracle HTTP Server for 11.1.1.1.0, then you must reconfigure it for 11.1.1.2.0.

  7. For composites involving BPEL Sensors with sensor action as JMS Queue, JMS Topic, JMS Adapter (remote JMS), re-create the JMS Queue, JMS topic, and the remote JMS set up.

  8. Configure the identity and policy provider, as described in Section C.4.3.5.2, "Migrating Oracle Internet Directory Policy and Credential Store and Reusing an Existing Oracle Internet Directory Server".

  9. Configure the SSO provider for 11.1.1.2.0.

  10. Configure the adapters as follows:

    • Create the data source for the AQ adapter by following the steps described in the "Configuring the Data Sources in the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Technology Adapters.

    • Configure AQ JMS in Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console. For more information, see the Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Technology Adapters.

    • Create the foreign server for the AQJMS again and restart the server.

    • After migration, if the log was showing Queue Manager not available (with MQ reason code: 2059), you must modify the JNDI, which is used by the composite deployed to point to the Queue Manager, which was used for pre-upgrade. After making this change, you must restart SOA.

  11. Migrate the B2B for 11.1.1.2.0 as follows:

    1. Import previously exported repository from 11.1.1.1.0 with the Replace Existing MetaData flag.

    2. Update the key store password and restart the B2B server.

    3. Select the certificate alias in delivery channel and save.

    4. Deploy the B2B agreements.

C.4.3.8 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle User Messaging Service

After running Patch Assistant, you must perform the following:

C.4.3.8.1 Migrating Configuration for Additional Custom-Deployed Drivers

If your Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) domain has configuration files for additional User Messaging Service driver deployments beyond those provisioned at install time, then you must migrate them to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0). Run the following Ant command on the command-line:

ant -f UMS/build.xml patch-ums-driver-config -Ddriver.name=<driver_name>

Where <driver_name> is the deployment name of the custom driver. The build.xml file is located in your patchMaster directory.

Note:

This command only migrates the configuration to Oracle Fusion Middleware (11.1.1.1.2.0) domain and will not deploy the driver.

C.4.3.8.2 Migrating Configuration for User Messaging Service Worklist Driver

If your Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) domain has the User Messaging Service Worklist Driver installed and configured, then the configuration of the Worklist Driver is automatically migrated by the Patch Assistant. Patch Assistant does not install this additional driver. You must re-install the driver in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) domain.

For more information, see "Install the Worklist Driver" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.4.3.9 Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle WebCenter

C.4.3.9.2 Reconfiguring Oracle WebCenter Identity Store and Migrating the Application Policy to the WebCenter Policy Store

You must migrate your existing identity store and credential store. Before doing so, be sure to start all the servers in your WebCenter domain.

If you are using the embedded LDAP based policy and credential store, for information about the tasks that you need to perform, see the "Exporting and Importing a File-based Policy Store" and "Exporting and Importing a File-based Credential Store" sections in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

When Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 is configured to use an external LDAP-based identity store, then post mid-tier migration you must migrate your identity store and credential store to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0). For information about how to migrate Oracle Internet Directory policy and credential store, see Section C.4.3.5.2, "Migrating Oracle Internet Directory Policy and Credential Store and Reusing an Existing Oracle Internet Directory Server."

After migrating the identity and credential store, you must run the updateSpacesPolicy.py script to update the WebCenter Spaces application policy to include appropriate security permissions. If you do not run this script, WebCenter Spaces users will not be able to access their profile information or the service tabs in group spaces.

Note:

You must run the updateSpacesPolicy.py script even if your Oracle WebCenter uses the embedded LDAP identity store.

To execute updateSpacesPolicy.py:

  1. Launch WLST with this command:

    WC_ORACLE_HOME/common/bin/wlst.sh
    

    Where WC_ORACLE_HOME refers to the Oracle WebCenter installation directory.

  2. At the WLST command prompt, enter the following command to connect to the Administration Server:

    wls:/offline> connect('user_name,'password, 'host_name:port_number')
    

    For example, use the following command:

    connect('weblogic','weblogic', 'myhost.example.com:7001')
    
  3. Use the following command to run the updateSpacesPolicy.py script:

    wls:/weblogic/serverConfig> execfile('WC_ORACLE_HOME/webcenter/scripts/updateSpacesPolicy.py')
    
  4. Ensure that there are no errors logged on the console. If there are errors, use the error message as a guide and inspect the updateSpacesPolicy.py script to determine the grant command that failed. You must fix errors, if any, and run the grant command manually.

  5. Restart the Administration Server and the WLS_Spaces Managed Server.

C.4.3.9.3 Configuring Oracle WebCenter for Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)

Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) provides additional security for connections between WebCenter applications or components by providing an additional authentication layer, and by encrypting the data exchanged. During mid-tier migration, the SSL configuration does not get migrated. After running the Patch Assistant script, you must reconfigure SSL for Oracle WebCenter and, if required, for various WebCenter Services integrated into your WebCenter applications.

For information about how to configure SSL for WebCenter applications and WebCenter Services, see the "Configuring WebCenter Applications and Components to Use SSL" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

For example, in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0, if secured portlets were used in WebCenter Spaces, then your keystore must have been set to the Custom Identity and Java Standard Trust keystore and you would have imported the required portlet certificates in the Java standard trust keystore (typically cacerts). Now, post mid-tier migration, you must configure the WLS_Spaces server, in your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0 instance, to use the Custom Identity and Java Standard Trust keystore and other SSL-specific settings that were configured for Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0. Also, you must reimport all your portlet certificates into the trust keystore to access secured portlets in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0.

C.4.3.9.4 Configuring Oracle WebCenter for Single Sign-On (SSO)

For single sign-on (SSO) authentication, your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 may be configured to use Oracle Access Manager (OAM), Oracle Single Sign-on (OSSO), or a SAML-based single sign-on solution for WebCenter applications only. After mid-tier upgrade, you may need to perform the following configuration, depending on the SSO solution used.

For each of these cross-references, refer to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library:

  • Configuring OAM: Configure the authenticator and the OAM asserter to use the same configuration as used in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0. For information, see the "Configuring Oracle Access Manager (OAM)" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • Configuring OSSO: Configure the authenticator and the OSSO asserter to use the same configuration as used in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0. For information, see the "Configuring Oracle Single Sign-On (OSSO)" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • Configuring SAML-based SSO: You must set up your entire SAML-based SSO solution. For information, see the "Configuring SAML-based Single Sign-on" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

Note:

If WebCenter is running with SSO, the OmniPortlet producer receives an authorization exception when it tries to store connection information in the Credential Store Framework (CSF) wallet. For information about how to resolve this issue, see the "OmniPortlet Producer Authorization Exception in SSO Environment" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

C.4.3.9.5 Refreshing Group Space Data in WebCenter Spaces

After mid-tier migration, you must refresh the group space data. Also, refresh the member data for each group space individually.

To refresh the group space data:

  1. Log on to WebCenter Spaces as an administrator.

  2. Click the Administration link, and go to the Group Spaces tab.

  3. Click the Refresh icon.

To refresh the member data for a group space:

  1. Log on to WebCenter Spaces as an administrator.

  2. Go to the desired group space, open the Settings tab, and then the Members tab.

  3. Click the Refresh icon in the Manage Group Space Members section.

    You must perform this procedure for each group space individually.

Note:

In your migrated WebCenter instance if access is denied to a group space, ensure that the credential store has been migrated successfully and the group space data has been refreshed.

After you upgrade from Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 to Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0, you may initially see a group space GUID in Activity Stream in lieu of a group space name in WebCenter Spaces. This can occur when you configure an Activity Stream task flow instance and select to display activity from a group space that was upgraded. You can work around this issue by generating some activity in that group space, like adding or removing a member. This refreshes the Activity Stream instance with the group space display name.

C.4.3.9.6 Reapplying Configuration Changes

If you want the same configuration as defined in your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0, then you must reapply the configuration changes in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0. Configuration changes may relate to the any of the following. All references are to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library:

  • WebCenter Portlet Producers: Any changes made to the provider.xml file of a portlet producer, like changing a proxy server, require that post mid-tier migration you reconfigure those changes, redeploy the portlet producer EAR application, and restart WLS_Portlet Managed Server. For information about redeploying portlet producers, see the "Managing Portlet Producers" chapter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • WebCenter Services: While installing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.2.0, if you changed the host and port number of the back-end servers on which your WebCenter Services rely, you must reconfigure the required service connections to use the new server configuration. For information about specific services, see the "Managing Services, Portlet Producers, and External Applications" part in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • WebCenter Wikis and Blogs: Any configuration changes made to your Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.1.0, such as changing the theme or setting the attachment size, require that you reapply those changes in Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.2.0. To reconfigure settings, use Administration mode of your Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server. For information, see the "Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server - Configuration" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • WebCenter Spaces and Workflows: The WebCenter Spaces workflows functionality requires sca_CommunityWorkflows.jar and WebCenterWorklistDetailApp.ear to be deployed to a SOA server. If WebCenter Spaces workflows were enabled in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0, you must redeploy these applications to the SOA server post mid-tier migration. For information, see the "Back-End Requirements for WebCenter Spaces Workflows" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • WebCenter Spaces profile settings: In WebCenter Spaces, profile settings set on the WebCenter Administration > Services > Profile screen are not retained when you upgrade from Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 to Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0. After the upgrade, you must reapply the required profile settings on the WebCenter Administration > Services > People Connections > Profiles screen.

C.4.3.9.7 Importing Wiki Templates and Attachments

In Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.1.0, regardless of the repository type configured for the server, templates and attachments are stored in a file-based repository. Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.2.0 supports only a database repository; templates and attachments are also stored in the database repository.

If your Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.1.0 used a database repository, then during migration templates and attachments are migrated to the database repository configured for Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.2.0. If your Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.1.0 used a file-based repository, then during migration wiki templates and attachments are migrated to a file-based repository. To make these templates and attachments available in Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.2.0, you must manually migrate them to the database repository.

To import attachments for a wiki page, the user who owns that wiki page or you as an administrator must reupload the attachments on the wiki page. When you reupload an attachment, the attachment gets stored in the database repository. Note that attachments must be reuploaded for each wiki page individually.

To migrate templates:

  1. Log on to Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.2.0 as an administrator.

  2. Click the Administration link to open Administration mode.

  3. Click Templates.

  4. Click import.

  5. On the Import Templates page, in the Folder field, enter the path to templates. For example:

    $APPLICATIONS_DIRECTORY/owc_wiki/templates.

    Where, $APPLICATIONS_DIRECTORY is the directory where you installed Oracle WebCenter Wiki and Blog Server 11.1.1.2.0. That is, $APPLICATIONS_DIRECTORY = MW_HOME/user_projects/applications/DOMAIN_NAME.

  6. Click Import Templates. The existing file-based templates are individually re-created in the wiki database repository.

C.4.3.9.8 Migrating Oracle Content Server

Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0 is compatible with Oracle Content Server 10.1.3.5.1. To migrate your existing Oracle Content Server and prepare it to work with Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0, you must perform the following tasks. All references are to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library:

  • Run the WebCenter configuration script, wc_contentserverconfig. This script is available on the Universal Content Management (UCM) media shipped with Oracle WebCenter. For information about how to run the script, see the "Oracle Content Server - Installation" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  • Reconfigure the identity store for Oracle Content Server. To connect to an LDAP-based identity store, Oracle Content Server 10.1.3.5.1 requires a JPS user provider, instead of an LDAP user provider. Therefore, you must configure a JPS user provider and ensure that the existing LDAP user provider for Oracle Content Server is disabled. For information, see the "Configuring the Identity Store" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

C.4.3.9.9 Configuring Oracle WebCenter Discussions for WebCenter Spaces

When you migrate from Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.1.0 to Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.2.0, the patch assistant script migrates the database schema of your Oracle WebCenter Discussions server. Out-of-the-box, Oracle WebCenter Discussions 11.1.1.2.0 is configured to use the embedded LDAP identity store of Oracle WebLogic Server.

You must configure Web Services Security (WS-Security) if you want to use Oracle WebCenter Discussions with WebCenter Spaces.

To configure Oracle WebCenter Discussions:

  1. Log on to the Oracle WebCenter Discussions 11.1.1.2.0 server as an administrator by using the following URL format:

    http://host:port/owc_discussions/admin
    

    Where host:port refer to the host name and port number of the system where Oracle WebCenter is installed.

  2. To verify that Oracle WebCenter Discussions has been migrated successfully, in Jive Forums Admin Console, ensure that "Jive Forums Silver 5.5.20.2-oracle" is displayed in the top-right corner.

  3. Configure WS-Security trusted authentication if you want to use Oracle WebCenter Discussions with WebCenter Spaces. For information about how to configure WS-Security, see "Configuring WS-Security" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

  4. Reconfigure SSO for Oracle WebCenter Discussions, if required. For information, see the "Configuring a WebCenter Application to Use Single Sign-On" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.4.3.9.10 Migrating Custom WebCenter Applications

To make your custom WebCenter applications available in Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0, you must migrate them from your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 instance. You do not need to migrate the metadata of these applications because Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0 schemas are an in-place patch of your Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.1.0 schemas for MDS, PORTLET, and WEBCENTER.

All references in this section are to the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

To migrate a custom WebCenter application:

  1. Open the application in Oracle JDeveloper 11.1.1.2.0.

    This invokes the migration wizard that automatically migrates your application to Oracle WebCenter 11.1.1.2.0.

  2. Save the application.

  3. Create a WebLogic Managed Server instance and provision it with a required set of shared libraries. For information, see the "Creating and Provisioning a WebLogic Managed Server Instance" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  4. Create and register the Metadata Service (MDS) repository for your application on the WebLogic Domain's Administration Server instance. For information, see the "Creating and Registering the Metadata Service Repository" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

  5. Deploy the application to a Managed Server. For information, see the "Deploying the Application to a WebLogic Managed Server Instance" section and the "Deploying Portlet Producer Applications" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

Your custom WebCenter applications may have WebCenter Services integrated that rely on back-end servers. For example, Discussions and Search services rely on Oracle WebCenter Discussions and Oracle SES, respectively. While installing Oracle Fusion Middleware 11.1.1.2.0, if you changed the host or port number of your back-end servers, you must reconfigure the required WebCenter Services to use the new server configuration. For information about specific services, see the "Managing Services, Portlet Producers, and External Applications" part in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide for Oracle WebCenter.

C.4.3.10 Post Migration Configuration for Oracle Web Services Manager

To migrate Oracle Web Services Manager (WSM), perform the following tasks:

Note:

Before you can migrate Oracle WSM, you must migrate components of the security environment, such as the identity store and key store configurations. For more information, see Section C.4.3.5, "Post-Migration Configuration for Oracle Platform Security Services".

C.4.3.10.1 Purging the Policy Usage Analysis Information from the Metadata Services Repository

In this release, the same Oracle Metadata Services (MDS) repository can be used to manage policies across multiple domains. In previous releases, an MDS repository could only be used by a single domain.

If you have analyzed policy usage using the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.1.0) installation, you will need to purge the policy usage analysis information from the MDS repository to ensure that accurate usage results are reflected for the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) version.

To purge the policy usage analysis information from the MDS repository, use the deleteMetadata MDS command as follows:

deleteMetadata(application='wsm-pm',server='server_name',
                docs='/policyAttachments/**')

server_name specifies the name of the server on which the Oracle WSM policy manager is running.

After purging the policy usage analysis information, you must restart the server.

For more information about managing MDS repositories, see "Maintaining the MDS Repository" section in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.4.3.10.2 Migrating the Oracle WSM Policies in the MDS Repository

In Oracle WSM 11g Release 1 (11.1.1), predefined and custom Oracle WSM policies are stored in the Oracle MDS repository. In this patch set, there are two new predefined policies available:

  • oracle/wss_saml_or_username_token_over_ssl_service_policy

  • oracle/wss11_saml_or_username_token_with_message_protection_service_policy

You can use Oracle WebLogic Scripting Tool (WLST) commands to upgrade the repository with the new predefined policies. You can also refresh the repository by deleting all Oracle WSM policies from the repository, including custom policies, and then repopulating it using the predefined policies provided in your installation. All of the policies in the repository are also revalidated when you upgrade the repository.

For more information, see "Upgrading the Oracle WSM Policies in the MDS Repository" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.4.3.10.3 Migrating Custom Policy Accessor Properties

If you have customized the policy accessor properties, you must re-apply the policy manager connection information once you have migrated your installation. For more information, see "Configuring Platform Policy Properties" in the Oracle Fusion Middleware Security and Administrator's Guide for Web Services in the Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g Release 1 (11.1.1.2.0) documentation library.

C.4.6.1 Overriding Properties Set in the patchMaster.properties File

You can use the Ant command-line utility to override the properties set in the patchMaster.properties file. You must specify the required property on the command line as follows:

ant -D<property>=<value>

For example, to select components to patch, enter the following command on the command line:

ant -DpatchMaster.Componentlist=SOA,UMS,WebCenter
master-patch-schema

Note that master-patch-schema, in the above example, is the command that uses the new values.

Refer to Table C-5 for complete information about properties that you can specify on the command line or in the patchMaster.properties file.

Note:

When you override the patchMaster.Schemauser property to specify the system user by using the command-line utility, ensure that you use double quotation marks, as in the following example:

ant -DpatchMaster.Schemauser="SYS AS SYSDBA"

Do not enter the double quotation marks if you edit the patchMaster.properties file directly.
