Running autoconfig on a standby apps tier for eBS R12.1.3

Perform the following steps to prepare an apps tier node for eBS 12.1.3. This note is written in the context of an eBS 12.1.3/11gR2 standby setup as described in this master note. It is assumed that
  • preclone has already been run on the primary environment.
  • The primary db is called vis121p
  • The secondary db is called vis121s
  • The filetree to be preserved on the standby is /u01/install/APPS/
There are two steps to be executed to preconfigure the appstier for a future failover/switchover:
  1. create the new autoconfig file
  2. Run autoconfig to generate the $INST_TOP directory to manage the apps tier on the secondary
#1) Generate the context file:
cd <COMMON_TOP>/clone/bin
perl adclonectx.pl <INST_TOP>/appl/admin/<PRIMARY CONTEXT>.xml
Example:
cd /u01/install/APPS/apps_st/comn/clone/bin
perl adclonectx.pl /u01/install/APPS/inst/apps/vis121p_vis121papp01/appl/admin/vis121p_vis121papp01.xml

 -If cloning a context on source system for a remote system. -If cloning a context on a machine where the ports are taken and you do not want to shutdown the services at this point. -If cloning a context but the database it needs to connect is not available.
