R12.2 eBusiness Suite EBS – During ADOP phase = prepare data dictionary corruption missing parent

Adop-PrepareDuring an online patching session with ADOP, when the prepare phase checks the data dictionary integrity, you receive the following error:

R12.2 eBusiness Suite EBS – During ADOP phase = prepare data dictionary corruption missing parent:
Verifying data dictionary.
[UNEXPECTED]Data dictionary corrupted:
[UNEXPECTED]Data dictionary corruption – missing parent
1416131 ORA$BASE APPS BPA_GUIDED_PICKING SYNONYM
1416121 ORA$BASE APPS CO_CLIPPERSHIP_INTERFACE SYNONYM
1416132 ORA$BASE APPS BPA_PRINT_GUIDED_PICK_LABELS SYNONYM
1416128 ORA$BASE APPS GEM_ESIG_INQUIRY_CORE SYNONYM
[UNEXPECTED]Data dictionary corruption detected. Provide details to
[UNEXPECTED]Oracle Support and ask for a bug to be opened against the
[UNEXPECTED]Online Patching component of Oracle Application Install.

[STATEMENT] Please run adopscanlog utility, using the command

“adopscanlog -latest=yes”

Issue:

The corruption is detected with the $AD_TOP/sql/ADZDDBCC.sql scriptis executed just prior to setting up the ADOP session.  This is also a mandatory check performed during pre-upgrade readiness checking for R12.2 upgrades.

Solution:

There is a rudimentary, but effective script supplied in $AD_TOP/patch/115/sql named adzddmpfix.sql (and a number of other adzd___ named scripts that address other data dictionary issues, such as the common TimeZone timestamp issues (Doc ID 2017686.1))

This script is run as SYS and requires all middle-tier services to be shutdown because it’s rebuilding all of the APPS synonyms for objects and recompiling afterwards.

Sample output:

4 rows deleted.

Commit complete.

System altered.

“—- Compiling invalids —-”

Don’t forget to re-run the $AD_TOP/sql/ADZDDBCC.sql script to identify whether the data dictionary corruption is still present afterwards.

Using Demo Data for Oracle Data Mining Tools

With the forthcoming (but already available) SQLDeveloper 4.1 edition, an improved version of the Oracle Data Miner tools is incorporated into the SQLDeveloper console.  However, I found that there were a number of steps needed to actually use this new data modeling product other than just responding ‘Yes’ to the “Do you wish to enable the Data Miner Repository on this database?” prompt.

Here’s what I ended up doing to get things up and running (so that I could play with data modeling and visualization using Excel and the new SQLDeveloper DM extensions.)

#In this case, I’m adding back the demonstration data (i.e. EMP, DEPTNO type tables; the SH, OE, HR, et.al. schemas) into an existing R12 e-Business Suite (12.1.3) instance.

# Installing the Oracle Demo data in an R12 instance.

# Use the runInstaller from the R12 $ORACLE_HOME
cd $ORACLE_HOME/oui/bin
export DISPLAY=<workstation IP>:0.0
./runInstaller

# Choose the source products.xml from the staging area – Download and stage the DB Examples CD from OTN
/mnt/nfs/database/11203/examples/stage/products.xml

# Complete the OUI installation through [Finish]

cd $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema
mkdir -p $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema/log
echo $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema/log/     ## used to respond to the Log Directory prompt during mksample.sql

sqlplus “/ as sysdba”
— will need passwords for: SYS/SYSTEM and APPS (used for all of the demo schemas, some of which pre-exist such as, HR, OE (PM, IX, SH and BI were okay for 12.1.3).

— ## Be sure to comment out any DROP USER <HR, OE, etc.) commands in this script (or you will be restoring your EBS instance from a backup because it just dropped your Module schema tables…) ##
— They look like this:
/*
mksample.sql:– DROP USER hr CASCADE;
mksample.sql:– DROP USER oe CASCADE;
mksample.sql:DROP USER pm CASCADE;
mksample.sql:DROP USER ix CASCADE;
mksample.sql:DROP USER sh CASCADE;
mksample.sql:DROP USER bi CASCADE;
*/

–Similarly – if/when you decide you no longer need the data – do NOT just use the $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema/drop_sch.sql script
–or you just dropped your HR/OE/BI EBS schemas; don’t do that.
/*
drop_sch.sql:PROMPT Dropping Sample Schemas
drop_sch.sql:– DROP USER hr CASCADE;
drop_sch.sql:– DROP USER oe CASCADE;
drop_sch.sql:DROP USER pm CASCADE;
drop_sch.sql:DROP USER ix CASCADE;
drop_sch.sql:DROP USER sh CASCADE;
drop_sch.sql:DROP USER bi CASCADE;

order_entry/oe_main.sql:– Dropping the user with all its objects
order_entry/oe_main.sql:– DROP USER oe CASCADE;
order_entry/oe_main.sql:– ALTER USER oe DEFAULT TABLESPACE &tbs QUOTA UNLIMITED ON &tbs;

*/
— in this instance the $APPS_PW is synchronized to all application module schemas (i.e. AR, HR, GL, etc.)
— log directory would be the actual path from echo $ORACLE_HOME/demo/schema/log/ (including the trailing slash)
