Grid Control–Application Management Pack–Getting Started

A little while ago we purchased the Oracle Application Management Pack.   As you may or may not know, you cannot use Grid Control to manage and monitor individual components of an E-Business Suite environment, such as the concurrent manager, forms, etc.

The following document on Metalink describes the packs features and how to install it:

Getting Started with Oracle E-Business Suite Plug-in, Release 4.0 [ID 1224313.1]

I figured I would document my progress with setting up the AMP pack here.  The first step is to make sure my EBS environment is at a certified level.   Unfortunately  this isn’t the case for us.   We are on ATG_PF.B.Delta.2 and to use AMP 4.0 the requirement is ATG_PF.B.Delta.3.   Also depending on the features of AMP you would like to use there are additional patches.   NOTE:  If you have applied the April 2012 CPU release tho, it had the same ATG_PF requirement.

This link is to a Google Docs spreadsheet which details the patches and steps I had to follow in order to bring our EBS environment up to the proper level.  I also used the opportunity to review our environment and apply any recommended techstack patches, such as database patches from note: 761570.1.   These metalink notes change overtime and its always a good idea to keep an eye on them.

For Reference they are:

  • Database Preparation Guidelines for an E-Business Suite Release 12.1.1 Upgrade [ID 761570.1] 
  • Upgrading OracleAS 10g Forms and Reports in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 [ID 437878.1] 
  • Upgrading to the Latest OracleAS 10g 10.1.3.x Patch Set in Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 [ID 454811.1]

Note:  Each EBS environment is different and you may not need all the patches or you may need more.   So I wouldn’t recommend following this step by step.   Its provided as a reference to give you an idea of the tasks involved.   As well, if you feel I missed anything please let me know.  Part of the advantages of sharing information is that hopefully its reciprocated. ;)
