Utility to check techstack components – Oracle Applications

There is a good utility for checking all the techstack components and there versions present in e-business application. This is applicable to both 11i and R12 environments.

There is a script $FND_TOP/patch/115/bin/txkInventory.pl on apps side which is going to fetch the versions of all components on apps side. This script can be run by giving input to $FND_TOP/patch/115/bin/TXKScript.pl script. TXKScript.pl script takes 2 mandatory arguments, one is the script to run and another is the directory for storing log file and out file. Other then these arguments you must give context file name and location and apps password as well. Also you need to give outfile where it will create report of techstack components.

Login to apps side of your application and source the environment. Run the below command

(appmgr06) appmgr – -bash $ perl $FND_TOP/patch/115/bin/TXKScript.pl -script=$FND_TOP/patch/115/bin/txkInventory.pl -txktop=$APPLTMP -contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE -appspass=apps -outfile=$OA_HTML/techstack_info.html
*** STDOUT   = /slot06/appmgr/scmc2mq0comn/rgf/scmc2mq0/TXK/txkInventory_Fri_May_16_04_01_03_2008_stdout.log

Reportfile /slot06/appmgr/scmc2mq0comn/html/techstack_info.html generated successfully.

You can access the above report file using http://(hostname.domain):(port)/OA_HTML/techstack_info.html

The report will look like this.

The report will have following information.

  • Summary of environment details
  • Inventory of HTTP Server Node
  • Inventory of Forms Server Node
  • Inventory of Concurrent Processing Server Node
  • Inventory of Administration Server Node

Similarly you can check on DB side as well

(oracle06) scmc2mq0 – -bash $ perl $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin/TXKScript.pl -script=$ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/bin/txkInventory.pl -txktop=$ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/temp -contextfile=$CONTEXT_FILE -appspass=apps -outfile=$ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/temp/master_db.html

Hope this helps !!
