3 Installing Updates on the Deployment Server

This chapter contains the following topics:

Note:

For ASUs, service packs, and tools releases, follow the instructions included with each update.

3.1 Understanding the Deployment Server Installation

The Deployment Server is the central hub for distribution of Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne objects to servers and users. The update process delivers changes to the deployment server to integrate with that distribution process. Each update type has a slightly different method of completing this task but the outcome is the same.

The installation process for the deployment server includes these tasks:

  • Acquiring the update from the Update Center, Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal.

  • Installing the objects from the CDs or the Web.

3.2 Using Update Center to Acquire Updates

Link to the Update Center through My Oracle Support or use Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Change Assistant from your desktop to acquire all ESUs and updates for other Oracle JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World products. JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Change Assistant streamlines the update process. This versatile tool simplifies the installation and deployment of ESUs and other updates.

3.3 Using the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud to Acquire Updates

If you already have JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 software and want to acquire an update, go to the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal at https://edelivery.oracle.com, or contact your local Customer Care Center. The Oracle Software Delivery Cloud portal enables you to obtain your software electronically. At this portal, you will find instructions for use, available languages, access to download software, and a list of releases that are available for download.

3.4 Installing the Software Update on the Deployment Server

The following process installs the software update on the deployment server. This installation may be from a CD or a download from the Update Center via My Oracle Support or JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and World Change Assistant.

Before you run the installation program, shut down all programs running on the deployment server that could cause Dynamic Link Library (DLL) conflicts (such as Internet Explorer or Adobe Reader).

Important:

In order to ensure that updates are merged as expected, it is strongly recommended that you apply the latest JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Planner ESU prior to applying any JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Applications ESUs.
