How to schedule to start/stop of All the services through crontab

It is often required to bounce the entire EBS system during off-hours or on weekend automatically without any manual intervention. We should be able to execute this using the cron utlity on Unix system Cron is a Unix scheduler for executing the scripts at specified time. We can create below scripts for bouncing the APPS tier on R12.2 and schedule it through cron

Here are the steps

  1. create a file  apps_user like

cat apps_user


APPS_PWD=<apps pass>


chmod 700 apps_user

This will ensure only the user running the services can read this

2) Create the scripts for start and stop like this

. apps_user

echo ” Starting the services”

{ echo $APPS_USER; echo $APPS_PWD; echo $WLADMIN_PWD; } | $INST_TOP/admin/scripts/ -nopromptmsg

echo “Services started”

. apps_user

echo ” Stopping the services”

{ echo $APPS_USER; echo $APPS_PWD; echo $WLADMIN_PWD; } | $INST_TOP/admin/scripts/ -nopromptmsg

echo “Services stopped”

Now we schedule these scripts through cron in Linux system to get the work done.
