In this post i will list out the steps to change the webport to 8000.
Step-1:Start only Weblogic admin
using adadminsrvctl.sh start on run file system
Login to Enterprise Manager(em) Console using below url
http://<hostname > . <domainname>:7001/em
Step-2:Navigate as shown below:
Click on Advanced Configuration as shown above
Step-3:select httpd.conf from the down as show in below figure:
Change OHS Listen PORT(Here i changed to 8000)
Run Context File Synchronization $AD_TOP/bin/adSyncContext.pl :
perl $AD_TOP/bin/adSyncContext.pl contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE
– Manually update the $CONTEXT_FILE if old port values are still present
-but in my case the values got updated to 8000
Step-6: Stop adminserver using adadminsrvctl stop
Step7: Start all the services using adstral.sh
STARTCD 18.104.22.168 has been released For R12.2 Stage
After long time I am updating my blog with R12.2.5 cloning.
There is a slight difference between R12.2.4 and R12.2.5.
With the introduction of dualfs in R12.2.5 we can even configure patch filesystem with single run of adcfgclone on the target node.
Here in the above picture, if run filesystem is on fs2 on the source then on the target also we should configure fs2 as run filesystem and automatically fs1 will become patch filesystem
we copy only EBSApps folder from source fs2 filesystem which is RUN filesystem, to target fs2 filesystem
NOTE: DO NOT COPY EBSApps folder from source fs2 run filesystem to target fs1 folder, this resulted in error.
IF FS2 FILESYSTEM IS RUN THEN WE SHOULD COPY SOURCE EBSApps FOLDER FROM FS2 of source TO TARGET FS2. THIS SHOULD BE DONE AFTER RUNNING adpreclone.pl ON SOURCE RUN FILESYSTEM.

Operating System: OEL 5.5.
Oracle EBS Version: R12.1.3
Oracle EBS Database Version 188.8.131.52(Before Upgrade)
Ref: Interoperability Notes EBS 12.0 or 12.1 with RDBMS 12cR1 (Doc ID 1524398.1)
Apply Below ApplicationPatches:
If you already on R12.1.3 then non need to apply Patch 9239090 – Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3
Apply Patch 12923944
Apply Patch 13473483
Apply Patch 16289505 – 12c Release 1 interoperability patch for Release 12.1
Apply Patch 18843706
Apply Patch 19558309
Step1:Prepare to create the 12.1.0 Oracle home
-Install Oracle Software 12c
mkdir -p /d01/oracle/PROD/db/tech_st/12c
Download below patchsets for 12c database
Unzip and run the runInstaller
Step2: Install Examples CD
Create nls/data/9idata directory
On the database server node, as the owner of the Oracle RDBMS file system and database instance, run the following command to create the $ORACLE_HOME/nls/data/9idata directory.
$ perl $ORACLE_HOME/nls/data/old/cr9idata.pl
Apply additional 184.108.40.206 RDBMS patches
Apply the following patches:
For all UNIX/Linux platforms:
Step5:Shut down Applications server processes and database listener
On each application tier server node, shut down all server processes or services. On the database tier server node, shut down the Oracle Net or Net8 database listener in the old Oracle home.
Note: The Applications will be unavailable to users until all remaining tasks in this section are completed.
Attention: Make sure that you do not have the LOCAL_LISTENER initialization parameter set to ensure that the database does not inadvertently point to a non-existent listener during upgrade.
Step6:Drop SYS.ENABLED$INDEXES (conditional)
If the SYS.ENABLED$INDEXES table exists, use SQL*Plus to connect to the database as SYSDBA and running the following command to drop it:
SQL> drop table sys.enabled$indexes;
Remove the MGDSYS schema (conditional)
If you are upgrading from an RDBMS version prior to 12c, on the old database server node, use SQL*Plus to connect to the database as SYSDBA and run the $ORACLE_HOME/md/admin/catnomgdidcode.sql script. This drops the MGDSYS schema.
$ sqlplus “/ as sysdba” @?/md/admin/catnomgdidcode.sql
Step7:Prepare to upgrade
Run FIX and Check Again…If there are any errors…….
Compile the Invalids
Copy $APPL_TOP/admin/adgrants.sql (adgrants_nt.sql for Windows) from the administration server node to the database server node. Use SQL*Plus to connect to the database as SYSDBA and run the script using the following command:
$ sqlplus “/ as sysdba” @adgrants.sql (or adgrants_nt.sql)
[APPS schema name]
Step15:De-register Database and Implement Autconfig
Run Autoconfig on the application side as well…..
Start the application tier services…..
This finishes the R12 EBS Database 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168
