[UNEXPECTED]Online patching tool cannot proceed when a previous patching session is incomplete
From the logs, It looks like you already have incomplete session. Did you apply hotpatch on run fs and then trying to run abort phase?
Yes, I have tried adop phase=abort -AND- adop phase=abort abandon=yes. Still nothing. The patch, a one-off offered for a specific problem and not release, was for the wrong code line. It failed, now adop won't allow me to move forward or cancel it. I'm feeling like an Alpha tested with this.
adop phase=cleanup worked...
adop exiting with status = 0 (Success)
Yes, when you apply the Hotpatch on run filesystem then abort phase will not work and abondan cannot be done.
You can abort the patch when you follow the adop patching cycle until you run the cutover phase since you apply the patch on patch edition fs.
