How to identify to which mid-tier you are/will be connected to on a multi-node R12 environment?

Imagine you have a multi-node Oracle Apps R12 setup with 2 node RAC. How would you identify to which server you are/will be connected to when you issue the url. Obviously when you have multi-node setup, you will be accessing the login page using a virtual URL.

1. Open Internet Explorer or Firefox
2. Type in the url eg:
3. This should bring the login page (AppsLogin)
4. Click on “About this page” — bottom left
5. Click on “Page Context” (3rd tab)

Here you will be able to see the following details:

1. Database HostName
2. DBC file being accessed
3. JDBC Port
4. SID being used to connect to the database

The DBC file being accessed proivdes the expanded full path of the dbc file (ie., $FND_SECURE or $INST_TOP/appl/fnd/12.0.0/.dbc). The expanded path will have the hostname. That is the mid-tier you are connected to.

You can also click on “Technology Components” & “Java System Properties” to gather more information.
