We don't have an Oracle E-Business Suite Test server for our Production environment, when we tried to do clone with an Rapid clone we hit with a issue, when we raised SR with oracle they suggested to apply latest AD patches to solve the issue.
Now the things is we don't have Test server for our Production, can we directly apply latest AD patches on our production...? If the patch fails will it affect current Production Data or application server...? what will be the situation if the AD patch fails...?
Can you people please suggest us what exactly to do...?
We even tried taking backup of whole EBS servers & restored to similar setup as production with the help of Acronis software, Restore was successful but the application was not able to communicate with DB and so many internal errors & issues.
We got no other choice...guide us plz
Note: Oracle E-Business Suite R12 on windows-2003, DB servers are RAC configured...
