I do not believe this is supported - pl open an SR with Support to confirm.
According to the below link, you can use a single file system for development or test systems.
However, it is preferred to use full adop patching cycle to apply patches on test systems.
Preparing the patch file system on the cloned environment does not require downtime. You can do it while the application is up and running.
In addition, if you have applied the latest AD/TXK Delta 7 patches, you can use the dualfs option to clone and configure the run and patch file systems in one step.
Oracle E-Business Suite Applications DBA and Technology Stack Release Notes for R12.AD.C.Delta.7 and R12.TXK.C.Delta.7 (Doc ID 2033780.1)
Things are changing quickly in 12.2.
As Bashar said, from AD/TXK 7, the rapidclone will build fs1/fs2 automatically. This should save a decent time. Also, I have seen a lot of improvement in the adop prepare,fsclone from AD 4 to AD 7. I hope you applied the latest ATG as well.
Yes. I do agree with Vishnu.
Things are quickly changing.
Some more new bug fixes available as per the latest ETCC & the new Bundle Fixes with Delta.7.
New monitoring tools like adopmon, adopreports, EBS Central Inventory with the introduction of AD/TXK Delta 7.
Thanks for details. In order to use single FS, the only step i see in the doc is " rm -rf $PATCH_BASE " , do we have any post configuration steps to do here ? .
Original & Current issue - we have only runFS up and running , unable to configure patchFS as explained in the beginning of the discussion

Kindly review and help on this
At which stage did you face this error?
Why are you running the cleanup?
I think that you should remove both file systems from the target environment, copy the run file system from the source and run post clone operations on the run file system only.

A couple of concerns I would like to point out:
1) From initial discussion"2 - clean up fnd nodes and run autoconfig on database tier" -- As far as I know, This is no longer supported in EBS 12.2. Only supported in prior version. Oracle doesn't support this any more.
3) Applying patches directly on the Run FS is not supported by Oracle. Patches should be applied in hotpatch mode or downtime mode if explicitly specified in Patch Readme or any MOS Notes. However, you can still have single FS for Dev/training/test systems only. wouldn't advise you to use the Single FS instances for pre-PROD.
4) Best bet is to upgrade to AD/TXK Delta 7 and when you clone both Run/Patch Fs in a single go using "
perl adcfgclone.pl appsTier dualfs"
Hope this helps!!!!
Thanks for the details.
we would like to have Single FS configured on one of our Development instance. Can someone please help with the technical steps to configure SingleFS in AD/TXK Delta 6.
As per my understanding, there aren't any special instructions nor Oracle provides any separate MOS Notes for setting up single FS.
Standard Rapid Clone document needs to be followed.
