Tip

Changing domain name in Oracle Applications 11i

The following tip will help you manually modify the domain name in Oracle Apps 11i and was tested on 11.5.4/NT platform. There are are also other ways to change the domain name (adclone, autoconfig), and the manual method as described below should be used only if other standard ways didn't help.

1. Run rapid install

Choose configure existent instance option
Then choose open (existent) configurations file
Modify the domain name
Run the install

This will modify the DBS_DOMAIN part only.

You can try to modify the CONFIG.TXT configuration file (from %TEMP% folder) by replacing the old domain name with the new one for xxx_DOMAIN settings. Then re-run the rapid install by opening this configuration file.

If the installation fails, then you will have to perform the following manual steps.

2. Manually modify the configuration files

To modify the other DOMAIN settings (FRM_DOMAIN, WEB_DOMAIN, etc.) modify the following configuration files.

Replace old domain name with new one (ex: FINANCIALS to VOXTEL.MD).

If files are in use then stop the correspondent Oracle service (Apache, etc.).


At path: Modify files:
%APPL_TOP%
(E:\Oracle\Visappl)
<DB_NAME>.cmd (VIS.cmd)
<DB_NAME>.env (VIS.env)
%APPL_TOP%\Admin

adupdprf.sql

appos090.html
nav.html

runrep.htm

3. Create (generate) the DBC (database configuration) file

At path %FND_TOP%\secure (E:\Oracle\visappl\fnd\11.5.0\secure) create new DBC file (testfin.voxtel.md_vis.dbc).
It can be created by:
a) Copying, renaming and modifying the old domain DBC file
(testfin.FINANCIALS_vis.dbc).
or
b) Running the batch command script adgendbc.cmd (with parameters: <APPS username> <APPS password>) at path %OAH_TOP%\admin\install
(E:\Oracle\viscomn\admin\install).

4. Modify profile option values

Run the following SQL*Plus scripts:

Path: Script:
%APPL_TOP%\Admin
(E:\Oracle\Visappl\Admin)
adupdprf.sql
%OAH_TOP%\admin\install
(E:\Oracle\viscomn\admin\install)
adadmprf.sql
adcmprf.sql
adfrmprf.sql
adwebprf.sql

Then open applications sign-on form (ex: http://testfin.voxtel.md:8002/dev60cgi/ifcgi60.exe) and in system administrator responsibility open system profile.

Check the domain name in the following profile options (at site level):

Profile option Value (example)
Applications Web agent http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/pls/VIS
TCF:HOST http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD
ICX: Report Images http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/OA_MEDIA
ICX: Report Launcher http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/dev60cgi/rwcgi60.exe
ICX: Report Link http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/pls/VIS/
ICX:Report Cache http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/CACHE
Apps Servlet Agent http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/oa_servlets
ICX: Discoverer Launcher http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/discwb33/html/english/welcome.htm?Connect=[APPS_SECURE]
ICX: Forms Launcher http://testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002/dev60cgi/ifcgi60.exe
ICX: Requisition Server testfin.VOXTEL.MD:8002

5. Modify services startup/log on as option.

If some Oracle services (ex: Oracle Apache Server) could not be started then try to modify the startup/log on as setting in services window: instead of system account set to this account (ex: FINANCIALS\Administrator).
