In order to speed up the resolution of Oracle Federation service requests the Oracle Support team has developed a perl script that can be used to enable and disable mode for the http server, OIF, and OPMN as well as collect configuration and log files to aid in the troubleshooting process of OIF issues.
This perl script can be run in 3 different modes:
- The -collect parameter can be used to capture only the configuration and log files without having to enable/disable full debug mode in the various components. The script is oftentimes run in this mode to see if the problem can be diagnosed without the need to fully enable debug mode. This is the default mode if no parameters are supplied.
- Supplying the -dbgon parameter will configure several iAS components for debug mode. The script will backup the original files, enable debug mode, and then restart the necessary iAS components. At this point the issue that is being reported needs to be duplicated so that the component log files can capture any errors generated.
- The -dbgoff parameter should be run after duplicating a reported issue and will reconfigure the iAS components back to the original configuration. It will zip up the resulting log and configuration files into a single file that should be uploaded to Metalink for Oracle Support to review.
The perl script can be downloaded from Metalink using the following link:
