The “Parallel Run” feature enables AutoConfig to be executed simultaneously across multiple nodes of an Oracle E-Business Suite instance. Certain AutoConfig configurations of one node depend on the configurations of other nodes. When running in parallel mode, AutoConfig uses dbms_locks so that the configuration of one node does not interfere with the configuration of other nodes. During the instantiation (INST) phase, locking is done at the script level. During the execution (EXEC) phase, locking is done at the product_top level.
AutoConfig can be run in parallel mode on the application tier with the following command:
perl $AD_TOP/bin/adconfig.pl contextfile=<CtxFile> [product=<product_top>] –parallel
Where <CtxFile> is the absolute path of the applicaton tier context file, and <product_top> is the short name of the product to be configured.
AutoConfig can be run in parallel mode on the database tier with the following command:
perl $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin/adconfig.pl contextfile=<CtxFile> -parallel
Where <CtxFile> is the absolute path of the database tier context file.
In parallel mode, AutoConfig must be invoked with the “–parallel” option on all nodes of a multi-node environment.
