At work we utilize Oracle Fusion Middleware on Red Hat 5.8.  As the primary systems administrator for the servers running FMW, I always found it to be a real pain that something as simple as a reboot required me to involve the app admin.  Instead of just being annoyed I got with that app admin to learn how the services were started and stopped and then wrote a set of SysV init scripts to automate that process.  These scripts seem to be reliable now so I have released the code on BitBucket at https://bitbucket.org/genebean/oracle-fmw-sysv-init.  These scripts cover all the components used when running Ellucian’s Internet Native Banner and Self Service Banner. » Read more

Do you have to use Oracle Wallet as part of Fusion Middleware? Do you also have a wildcard SSL certificate?  If so, then this tutorial is for you.  This tutorial is the result of trying to make a new install of Internet Native Banner (INB) play nicely with our wildcard certs so that if we change the hostname of the system or clone the virtual machine SSL does not break or require adjustment. To start things off, let’s establish a couple of conventions that will be used in the tutorial.  First, I will use a couple of environment variables throughout: $OHSINSTANCEHOME is the Oracle HTTP Server’s home.  If your application happens to be INB then the directory listing will look something like this: [genebean ~]$ sudo ls -l $FMW_HOME total 780 drwx------ 3 oracle oinstall 4096 Sep 24 14:11 auditlogs drwx------ 2 oracle oinstall 4096 Sep 24 » Read more
