There is no rollback procedure for Oracle data and the upgrade process does not back up your data or file system. Please refer to support.automic.com for the most updated version of these release notes and for information on known issues. Getting the Latest Information Documentation, release notes, and other information is often updated after software is released.

A secondary Applications Manager RMI server can be setup and run in stand-by mode (active-passive), so that in the event that the primary Applications Manager Automation Engine goes down, the stand-by RMI server will become the active Automation Engine. When the stand-by RMI server becomes active, the agents will reconnect to it automatically; with the exception of the local agent. That is because the local agent is part of the Automation Engine installation, and integrated with the specific Automation Engine system. Therefore, in systems that require RMI server failover, it is recommended that all jobs be setup to run on remote agents. Support for Additional Rapid Automation Agents Some agents that are not supported for Applications Manager v8.0 are supported for Applications Manager v9.0. These include Web Service v3.1.0, and FTP v3.1.2. For a current list of Automation Engine support requirements for all Rapid Automation agents, see the Rapid Automation Support Matrix on the Automic Support site. Platform and Oracle Support Version 9 is the first Applications Manager release that supports Oracle 12c databases. When using Oracle 12c database and you have an Oracle Enterprise Edition multi-tenant system or Oracle 2 Applications Manager v9.0 Release Notes Standard Edition single tenant system, Applications Manager must be installed into a pluggable database (PDB) within a container. Your DBA is responsible for creating the pluggable database. Oracle 12c non-CDB/PDB configurations are identical to Oracle 11g databases. Enabling/Disabling RMI Server Debug with the RMI_ DEBUG Job You can now enable or disable RMI server debug by running the RMI_DEBUG job. Like all Applications Manager jobs, you can request and submit RMI_DEBUG to run it ad hoc, or schedule it. Activate or deactivate RMI server debug by setting the Enable prompt to Yes or No. The RMI_ DEBUG job is included in the RMI_DEBUG import file. Desupported Features The following features are desupported for Applications Manager v9.0: l l l l l l The Dashboard AppMaster Remote Method Extension agents VMS agents OS400 agents ZOS (mainframe bridge) agents The supported platforms for the Automation Engine and its agents change between releases. For a list of supported platforms for the Automation Engine and agents in this release, see the Matrix below. Known Issue: You Cannot Retrieve a Local WSDL File for a SOAP Login Object You cannot retrieve a local WSDL file for a SOAP login object using the Web Service agent. This will be fixed in Applications Manager v9.0 Service Pack 1 and a patch is available from Automic Support. Matrix The platforms in the following matrix are supported for Applications Manager v9.0.
