The tnsnames.ora file of the 806 home has many entries starting with FNDFS_ and FNDSM_.
FNDFS or the Report Review Agent (RRA) is the default text viewer within Oracle Applications, which allows users to view report output and log files. Report Review Agent is also referred to by the executable FNDFS. The default viewer must be configured correctly before external editors or browsers are used for viewing requests. Check out metalink note 111383.1 which describes the Basics About Report Review Agent (FNDFS) on 11i.
FNDSM is the Service manager. Sometimes after cloning you may find that concurrent managers do not start up. Metalink Note 305986.1 describes the scenario:
You have followed instructions within Note 230672.1 - Cloning Oracle Applications Release 11i with Rapid Clone and completed the cloning successfully.
However, now the Concurrent Manager cannot be started. The following error is produced in the Internal Concurrent Manager log file:
Could not start Service Manager FNDSM_hostname.
The TNS alias could not be located, the listener process on hostname could not be contacted, or the listener failed to spawn the Service Manager process.
This is caused because FNDSM_hostname service is not present in the target instance.
FNDSM database trigger is used to create the FNDIM_ and FNDSM_ concurrent managers. This trigger is present on FND_NODE table. If triggers are disabled in source then issue may occur.
- Run this following select SQL statements on the target node only to check trigger status:
> SELECT trigger_name , status
WHERE table_name = 'FND_NODES' ;
- If status of the triggers show as DISABLED, then enable these following triggers as follows:
> Connect apps/apps
> alter trigger UPNAME enable;
> alter trigger FNDSM enable;
- Take backup of FND_NODES table in Target.
> create table FND_NODE_bk as select * from FND_NODES ;
- Login into Oracle Application with System Administrator Responsibility.
- Delete the rows from FND_NODES table in target using install -> node -> Define form.
- Then re-Register TRAGET hostname.
- This should register FNDIM_ and FNDSM_ concurrent managers in FND_CONCURRENT_QUEUE Table.
For cluster configuration, when the cluster name is manually inserted in FND_NODES, you can do the following to ensure that FNDFS_ entries are created in tnsnames.ora :
From the Application tier:
1. Log in as applmgr
2. cd to $FND_TOP/patch/115/sql
3. Run the script: afdcm037.sql
4. This script will create libraries for FNDSM and create Managers for Preexisting Nodes.
Note: Service Manager "FNDSM" can not be created from form:
Concurrent> Manager> Define under Sysadmin Responsibility.
