Overview of Managing the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine

This chapter describes how to manage the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager virtual machine after initial deployment.

Update Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to the Latest Version (Conditional)

Perform the following tasks to ensure you are using the latest version of Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager.

Note: Unless otherwise noted, the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator performs the tasks in this section.

  1. Check the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Version

  2. Create a Backup of Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine

  3. Migrate to the Latest Codelevel

Check the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Version

After deploying Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager, you can log in to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager and check the version by following the instructions in Log In to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager and Check the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Version. If you see a message that a later version is available than the one you have installed, proceed with the rest of this procedure.

The latest version is 21.1.1.0.1.

Create a Backup of Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine

Before you run the Self Update Utility, we strongly recommend that you back up your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Virtual Machine. To do so, follow the instructions in Cloning a Boot Volume to create a boot volume clone. You will also need to record key details of your provisioning VM for use during a restore process.

From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console on the Instances screen, click on your instance (for example, myebscminstance) to go to the Instance Details screen. Record (such as in a screenshot) the instance attributes for later use:

When you restore, you will also need the SSH key and host name of the original instance.

To obtain the host name, log in to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager VM using SSH, and perform the following steps:

  1. Run the hostname command and record the name.

  2. Make a note of the contents of the /etc/hosts file.

Migrate to the Latest Codelevel

Important: Note for Exadata Cloud Service customers:

After you have created the backup of the virtual machine, you can proceed to migrate your deployment based on your current Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager version.

Note: For existing environments created with versions of Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager prior to version 20.2.1, the expected behaviors are as follows:

Migrate Version 19.3.1.X or Later to the Latest Codelevel (Conditional)

If you are on Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager version 19.3.1.X or later, and you have already created policies for tag-namespaces (such as in Define Additional Policies for Using "tag-namespaces"), then you need to run the Self Update utility to bring up your version to the latest version, 21.1.1.0.1.

Perform the following steps:

  1. Connect to the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager VM using SSH and switch from the opc user to the oracle user:

    $ sudo su - oracle
  2. Run the Self Update utility as follows:

    $ cd /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/bin
    $ perl selfUpdate.pl
  3. Review the warning for Exadata Cloud Service customers and check whether you are ready to proceed with the update to Release 21.1.1.0.1. If you use Exadata Cloud Service and you are not ready to convert to the new resource model, then you must enter option 2 to exit the utility and remain on your existing Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager release of 20.2.1.1 or earlier.

    If you use Exadata Cloud Service and you have converted your existing Exadata DB Systems to the new resource model, or if you do not use Exadata Cloud Service, then you can proceed with the update. In this case, you can enter option 1 to continue.

    ****************************** WARNING ***********************************
    Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Release 21.1.1.0.1 supports the new
    Exadata Cloud Service resource model. You should convert your Exadata DB
    Systems to this new model. Be aware that if you have not yet converted to
    the new model, and plan to provision Oracle E-Business Suite environments
    where the database is on an Exadata DB System that uses the old resource model,
    you must choose 2 to exit and remain on your existing Cloud Manager release.
    ****************************************************************************
    
    Do you wish to continue??
    1: yes
    2: no
    
    Enter your choice: 1

    Choose release version to upgrade from the above list: 1 
  5. When prompted, enter your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator password:

    Enter Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Admin Password: 

    Note: You will have already followed the steps in Configure Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Compute Instance, to configure your VM. At this prompt, enter the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator password you specified at that time.

  6. Before continuing with the upgrade, you should ensure that there are no jobs in your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager with a status of In Progress, Scheduled, Paused, or Failed. Refer to Monitor Job Status.

    It is recommended that you allow In Progress and Scheduled jobs to complete before continuing, resume any Paused jobs, and restart any Failed jobs that you want to try again. You can also choose to delete an incomplete installation or an incomplete backup to clean up any resources instead of restarting the Failed job. If there are still any jobs with a status of Failed when you perform the upgrade, their status will be changed to Aborted. In this case, you must manually clean up any incomplete resources from the job after the upgrade.

    When prompted, enter y to confirm that you want to continue:

    Ensure that there are no Running, Scheduled or Failed Activities before upgrade.
    Failed activities will be marked as aborted and user has to do failed resource
    cleanup manually or user can finish cleanup of failed instances before proceeding.
    
    Do you wish to continue [y/n]? y
  7. The utility then displays several messages recording the actions it performs. Finally, it displays a screen containing a success message, similar to the following. You can optionally review the log file to verify further details about the upgrade.

Standalone Tasks

Replace the Self-Signed Certificate for the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Load Balancer with a Certificate Authority Issued Certificate

When you configure Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager, the listener of the Load Balancer as a Service (LBaaS) is TLS enabled for HTTP inbound connections to Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager. The certificate that is deployed by default for this configuration is a self-signed certificate. You can update the self-signed certificate with a certificate authority (CA) issued certificate using the following steps:

  1. By default the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager URL uses an IP address rather than a host name. The first step is to map the Oracle E-Business Suite IP address to a host name.

    Note: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides a public IP address but does not provide a public host name; therefore, you should ensure that appropriate DNS entries are present to resolve host name to the public IP address.

  2. Update the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager VM by following the instructions in Update the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager URL.

  3. Obtain a certificate for the host name from a certificate authority.

  4. Log in to the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console. From the navigation menu, select Networking, then Load Balancers, and then select the load balancer you want to configure.

    Add your certificate bundle to the load balancer. See To upload an SSL certificate bundle to your load balancing system in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Services documentation.

    If you have multiple certificates that form a single certification chain, such as one or more intermediate certificates together with a root certificate, then you must include all relevant certificates in one file before you upload them to the system. Refer to "Uploading Certificate Chains" in Working with SSL Certificates in the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Documentation.

  5. While still on the Load Balancer page, click the Listeners link under the Resources menu on the left.

  6. Search for the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager's listener. Note that there can be multiple listeners associated, as the same load balancer can be used by more than one Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager. Ensure to pick the listener corresponding to the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager you are using.

  7. Click the Actions icon (three dots) associated with the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager's listener's row, select Edit from the context menu.

  8. In the Edit Listener dialog window, select the certificate bundle added above in the Certificate Name drop-down list. Click Save Changes and wait for the listener to be updated.

Rediscover an Upgraded Environment

If you used Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to deploy your environment and now plan to upgrade either Oracle E-Business Suite or the Oracle E-Business Suite database, you can continue to use Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager after the upgrade by rediscovering the environment using the steps in this section.

Rediscovery is available for the following use cases, where the database can be running on any supported cloud service:

Important: Before performing rediscovery, ensure that the Resource Owner option is selected under Allowed Grant Types in the registration of Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager as an application in Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS). See Register Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager as a Confidential Application.

Conditional Action: The following requirements apply to an upgrade of Oracle E-Business Suite from Release 12.1.3 to Release 12.2.

The following scripts are provided to enable rediscovery:

These scripts are located in the /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/bin/rediscovery directory. The log file for the scripts is stored in the following location: /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/out/NodeJSClient.log

To rediscover an updated environment, perform the following steps:

  1. Ensure you are using the minimum Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager version required for your use case, as shown in the following table.

    Upgrade Type Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager Minimum Version
    Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade 20.2.1.1
    Oracle Database upgrade on Compute 21.1.1
    Oracle Database upgrade on VM DB Systems and Exadata Cloud Services 21.1.1.0.1

    If you need to update your version, follow the instructions in Update Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager to the Latest Version.

  2. Run the unregister-environment.js script using the following commands.

    $ cd /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/bin/rediscovery
    $ node unregister-environment.js

    When prompted, specify the name of the upgraded environment, your Oracle Identity Cloud Service user name and password, and your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator password.

  3. Create a stage directory on the database node of the upgraded environment to store metadata gathered during the discovery job. For example: /tmp/stage

  4. Run the discover-environment.js script using the following commands.

    $ cd /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/bin/rediscovery
    $ node discover-environment.js

    When prompted, specify the following details:

    • A name for the discovery request.

    • The name of the network profile used to provision the environment.

    • The IP address for the environment's database node.

    • The stage directory you created for the discovery job on the database node.

    • The file path for the environment's database context file.

    • The APPS password for the environment.

    • Your Oracle Identity Cloud Service user name.

    • Your Oracle Identity Cloud Service password.

    • Your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator password.

    • The load balancer configured for the environment. The script displays a list of the load balancers that are registered in the load balancer subnet within the specified network profile. If this environment uses multiple zones for the application tier and has more than one load balancer, enter the list of load balancer names separated by commas.

    • The listener for the environment. The script displays a list of the listeners configured for the specified load balancer. If this environment uses more than one listener, enter the list of listener names separated by commas.

  5. If you need to check the status of a discovery job, run the discovery-status.js script using the following commands.

    $ cd /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/bin/rediscovery
    $ node discovery-status.js

    When prompted, specify the discovery job ID assigned by the discover-environment.js script and your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator password.

    Tip: The discover-environment.js script may take some time to complete. If you want to check the progress of a discovery job that is still running, open a separate terminal window to run the discovery-status.js script without disrupting the running discovery job.

  6. After the discovery job completes successfully, log into Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager and verify the updated information for the environment in the environment details page. See Access Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager and Review Environment Details (Standard).

  7. If a discovery job failed, you must withdraw the failed discovery request before retrying discovery. To withdraw a request, run the withdraw-discover.js script using the following commands.

    $ cd /u01/install/APPS/apps-unlimited-ebs/bin/rediscovery
    $ node withdraw-discover.js

    When prompted, specify the name of the failed discovery request, your Oracle Identity Cloud Service user name and password, and your Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager administrator password.

    After you have withdrawn the previous discovery request and corrected any issues that caused the discovery to fail, you can retry discovery by rerunning the discover-environment.js script.
