Log files are useful in troubleshooting issues in Oracle Applications.

Here is the list of Log file location in Oracle Applications for Startup/Shutdown, Cloning, Patching, DB & Apps Listener and various components in Apps R12/12i: A. Startup/Shutdown Log files for Application Tier in R12 Instance Top is new TOP added in R12 (to read more click here) –Startup/Shutdown error message text files like adapcctl.txt, adcmctl.txt… $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/appl/admin/log –Startup/Shutdown error message related to tech stack (10.1.2, 10.1.3 forms/reports/web) $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/ora/ (10.1.2 & 10.1.3) $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/ora/10.1.3/Apache/error_log[timestamp] $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/ora/10.1.3/opmn/ (OC4J~…, oa*, opmn.log)$INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/ora/10.1.2/network/ (listener log) $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/logs/appl/conc/log (CM log files) B. Log files related to cloning in R12 Preclone log files in source instance i) Database Tier /$ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/log/$CONTEXT_NAME/(StageDBTier_MMDDHHMM.log) ii) Application Tier - $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/admin/log/ (StageAppsTier_MMDDHHMM.log) Clone log files in target instance Database Tier $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/log/$CONTEXT_NAME/ApplyDBTier_<time>.log Apps Tier - $INST_TOP/apps/$CONTEXT_NAME/admin/log/ApplyAppsTier_<time>.log —– If your clone on DB Tier fails while running txkConfigDBOcm.pl (Check metalink note 415020.1) During clone step on DB Tier it prompts for ―Target System base directory for source homes‖ and during this you have to give like /base_install_dir like ../../r12 and not oracle home like ../../r12/db/tech_st_10.2.0 —– C. Patching related log files in R12 i) Application Tier adpatch log - $APPL_TOP/admin/$SID/log/ ii) Developer (Developer/Forms & Reports 10.1.2) Patch - $ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage

iii) Web Server (Apache) patch - $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage iv) Database Tier opatch log - $ORACLE_HOME/.patch_storage D.
