In this post I am going to discuss about Refresh a Target System in R12 E-Business Suite environment.
The system to be clone is called as "Source System" and newly created(or cloned) system is called as "Target System".
Step 1: Ref in my previous post "Steps Involved in Cloning R12 e-Business Suites Environment (Single Node)" to prepare the source system.
Step 2: Copy any parts of the application tier file system that have been updated on the source system. It may require to refresh the target system's APPL_TOP,COMMON_TOP,or Tech Stack.
Step 3: You need to Refresh your database node at the same time. For database node refresh, Copy the database node file system ($ORACLE_HOME - RDBMS HOME).
Step 4: To configure the Target System to be Refreshed by specifying the exisiting Target System when running adcfgclone.pl.
perl adcfgclone.pl dbTier <CONTEXT FILE ON TARGET SYSTEM ON DATABASE NODE>
perl adcfgclone.pl appsTier <$INST_TOP/appl/admin/<CONTEXT FILE ON TARGET SYSTEM ON APPS TIER>>
Step 5: Once Refresh is finished. If you have customized environment then change post clone profile options, utl_file_dir etc.
