Recently, I described that starting with Release 22.2.1, the Oracle E-Business Suite Cloud Manager now supports OCI File Storage Service (FSS) besides block storage. Furthermore, the usage of FSS is mandatory for (new) multi-node environments. Given the advantages of FSS described in my previous blog one of my customers decided to migrate their apps-tier to File Storage Service.
In integration projects, it is often needed to integrate cloud applications with on-prem systems running in the clients network. In most cases, the client network is not accessible from the internet. This situation makes the task of integrating this system for a cloud integration platform, such as the Oracle Integration Cloud (OIC), almost impossible.
When automating operations of Oracle E-Business Suite using OCI and especially Oracle Cloud Manager – which is now even easier and faster with the latest release 22.1, it is often necessary to modify DNS entries. Let’s see how we can achieve this.
E-Business Suite Cloud manager in the latest version is an even better way to manage your E-Business Suite environment in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
Recently I described how a read-only user can be created for Oracle E-Business Suite. This works great, however, when trying to access the pre-built views of E-Business Suite, many of them do not show any data.
We recently upgraded a great amount of customer instances, both on the APEX and on the ORDS layer. The general procedure for Oracle APEX is more or less unchanged in comparison to previous versions. On the ORDS layer however, the upgrade to 22.1 contains many changes.
Recently Oracle released the Critical Patch Update for April 2022. We analyzed the security patches published and first of all: There is a lot of highly critical stuff in this quarter's release, especially for E-Business Suite (incl. Cloud Manager -maximum CVSS base score of 9.8), Fusion Middleware (a whole bunch of 9.8 ratings with more Log4J as well).
While upgrading one of our customers from 12.1.3 to 12.2.10 I realized (by chance) that Oracle made available the latest E4.Flex (AMD EPYC) shapes in the Frankfurt OCI data center last week.
