If the host on which the connectivity agent is running crashes and makes your environment unavailable, follow these steps to ensure that the connectivity agent is recovered and functions correctly.
Perform regular backups of the
agentdirectory located under
Ensure that the regular backups are not on the same physical host on which the agent is currently running.
Ensure that backups are available in the event of an agent host crash.
If your host crashes and makes the environment unavailable, do the following;
- Go to the Agents page in Oracle Integration.
- Click Download > Connectivity Agent.
- Save the
oic_connectivity_agent.zipfile on the agent host.
- Create an
AGENT_INSTALL_DIRdirectory. The new
AGENT_INSTALL_DIRdirectory name must match the old name.
- Replace the new
agentdirectory from your last backup.
- Restart the connectivity agent.
java -jar connectivityagent.jar
Note:If you use third party JAR files, ensure that the same JARs are available under
AGENT_INSTALL_DIR/agenthome/thirdparty/lib. If not, add them to the
To ensure the integrity of the backups, always create a new backup if integration activations/deactivations have occurred since the last backup.
The agent instance name is from the backed up configuration and is mapped to the current host. If the backup and recovery is performed on a different host, the agent instance name is not changed to reflect the new host on which the agent is running.
