Import Database Dump

Following are the installation steps to import database dump in the Oracle Database 11g.

Installation Steps

Following are the steps to follow when creating database for SmartHCM. First you need to start PLSQL Developer and login with System administrator user.

Case Sensitive Passwords

SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON enables or disables password case sensitivity in the database. Run following command in PLSQL Developer.

ALTER SYSTEM SET SEC_CASE_SENSITIVE_LOGON = FALSE

Create Table Space

Create TABLESPACE in oracle database for SmartHCM by using following command in “PL/SQL Developer”

CREATE TABLESPACE SMARTHCM

DATAFILE 'C:\app\administrator\oradata\ora11g\SMARTHCM.dbf' SIZE 1024M

AUTOEXTEND ON NEXT 1024M MAXSIZE 10240M;

Create User

Create user “SMARTHCM” by using following command in PLSQL Developer

CREATE USER SMARTHCM IDENTIFIED BY SMARTHCM DEFAULT TABLESPACE SMARTHCM;

More details for creating user

Give Rights to SMARTHCM user

Give rights to SMARTHCM database user by using following command in PLSQL Developer.GRANT CONNECT, RESOURCE TO SMARTHCM;

Create ORACLE_DUMP Directory

Create ORACLE_DUMP Directory in Oracle database user by using following command in PLSQL Developer.CREATE DIRECTORY ORACLE_DUMP A'C:\ORACLE_DUMP';

Give Rights to SMARTHCM user on ORACLE_DUMP Directory

Give rights to SMARTHCM user on ORACLE_DUMP directory by using following command in PLSQL Developer.GRANT READ, WRITE ON DIRECTORY ORACLE_DUMP to SMARTHCM;

Create TOM_FILE Directory

Create TOM_FILE Directory in Oracle database user by using following command in PLSQL Developer.CREATE DIRECTORY TOM_FILE AS '… SMARTHCM\CONFIGURATION';Note: define “CONFIGURATION” folder path exists in SmartHCM project folder.

Give Rights to SMARTHCM user on TOM_FILE Directory

Give rights to SMARTHCM user on TOM_FILE directory by using following command in PLSQL Developer.GRANT READ, WRITE ON DIRECTORY TOM_FILE to SMARTHCM;

Copy SMARTHCM database dump into Directory

Copy SMARTHCM database dump into 'C:\ORACLE_DUMP'

Import Database Dump

Following steps should be followed for importing database dump.

Run Command Prompt with “Run as Administrator”.

Import SMARTHCM database dump by using following command in Command Prompt

IMPDP SYSTEM/PASSWORD REMAP_SCHEMA=SMARTHCM:SMARTHCM DIRECTORY=ORACLE_DUMP DUMPFILE=SMARTHCM.DMP LOGFILE=SMARTHCM_EXPORT.LOG

If this command ask for user name while you have provided correct username and password and you get following error message in importing dump

“ORA-28547: connection to server failed, probable Net8 admin error”

“UDI-28547: operation generated oracle error”Then check the sqlnet.ora (exists in same folder in which tnsnames.ora exists). And change the

following entry and try.

Original entry ------ SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NTS).

Modified entry ------ SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE)

And then run IMPDP command again and then Connect with SMARTHCM user in PLSQL Developer.

Compile Invalid Objects

Compile Invalid Objects is the option available in PLSQL Developer. You just need to start PLSQL Developer and use the “Compile Invalid Objects” in the tools menu to compile invalid objects. See the snapshots.

SmartHCM Installation 13.png









We will see the following window when we click “Compile Invalid Objects” in the tools menu. In this window we will see all the objects likes procedures and functions that have errors. See the snapshots.

We need to compile all the invalid objects and remove the errors to complete the installation.

SMS Configuration

Connect as System or Sys User in Database and issue the following commands.


 BEGIN
 DBMS_NETWORK_ACL_ADMIN.CREATE_ACL(acl         => 'sms.xml',
                                   description => 'SMS Gateway ACL',
                                   principal   => 'SMARTHCM',
                                   is_grant    => true,
                                   privilege   => 'connect');

  DBMS_NETWORK_ACL_ADMIN.ADD_PRIVILEGE(acl       => 'sms.xml',
                                      principal => 'SMARTHCM',
                                      is_grant  => true,
                                      privilege => 'resolve'); 

   DBMS_NETWORK_ACL_ADMIN.ASSIGN_ACL(acl  => 'sms.xml',
                                   host => 'www.jawalbsms.ws');
   COMMIT;
   END;

/



Note:

  • Where “host” is the SMS Service Provider
  • Where “principal” is the Schema / Database Username where import the database
  • To verify the above script is successfully executed

SELECT * FROM dba_network_acl_privileges;

SELECT * FROM dba_network_acls;

SELECT utl_http.request('www.jawalbsms.ws') FROM dual; (where 'www.jawalbsms.ws' is the service provider URL)

Email Notification Configuration

Connect Sys user with SYSDBA rights and execute following

GRANT EXECUTE ON UTL_HTTP to &db_user;
GRANT EXECUTE ON UTL_TCP to &db_user;
GRANT EXECUTE ON UTL_SMTP to &db_user;
GRANT EXECUTE ON UTL_INADDR to &db_user;

Connect Sys user with SYSDBA rights and execute following

begin
  dbms_network_acl_admin.create_acl (
    acl         => 'email_sending.xml',
    description => 'Send Email',
    principal   => '&db_user',
    is_grant    => TRUE,
    privilege   => 'connect',
    start_date   => SYSTIMESTAMP,
    end_date     => NULL
    );
    commit;
end;
/

begin
  dbms_network_acl_admin.add_privilege (
  acl       => 'email_sending.xml',
  principal => '&db_user',
  is_grant  => TRUE,
  privilege => 'connect'
  );
  commit;
end;
/

begin
  dbms_network_acl_admin.assign_acl(
  acl  => 'email_sending.xml',
  host => '*',
  lower_port  => 80,
  upper_port  => 80
  );
  commit;
end;
/

Set System Default "SET_WEBSERVICE" to your webservice address.

Test it using below;

BEGIN
SET_SEND_EMAIL_PKG.SEND_EMAIL('yourname@gmail.com',
                                              NULL,
                                              GET_SYS_DEFAULT('EMAIL_SERVER_IP'),
                                              GET_SYS_DEFAULT('EMAIL_SERVER_PORT'),
                                              GET_SYS_DEFAULT('EMAIL_FROM'),
                                              'Test Subject',
                                              'Test Message',
                                              NULL,
                                              NULL,
                                              NULL); 
END;


To verify the above script is successfully executed;

SELECT * FROM DBA_NETWORK_ACLS;
SELECT * FROM DBA_NETWORK_ACL_PRIVILEGES;
SELECT * FROM user_network_acl_privileges;


Note:

  • Where “host” is the IP of the Email Server (‘*’ means auto find the specific email server)
  • Where “principal” is the Schema / Database Username where import the database

Troubleshooting

Following are the solution of possible errors that can occur after installation.

Credential Retrieval Failed

If you get error message "ORA-12638 credential retrieval failed" then check the sqlnet.ora (exists in same folder in which tnsnames.ora exists) and change the following entry and try.

Original entry ------ SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NTS)

Modified entry ------ SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES = (NONE)

Domain Network Firewall

If you found problem to load login page then turn off Domain networks Firewall in Windows Server and try again.

Server Error in Application

If you found following error (see snapshot) then register IIS with the following command on DOS prompt.


C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319> aspnet_regiis –
