      Hello Jenna,

       

      Would advise you to revert all the changes you have done.

      Suspect that the issue is occurring due to changes you've made.

      If you have a backup, please restore from backup.

       

      Regards,

      Narsi

        Thanks Narsi,

         

        You mean the creation of soft link from /u01/appcrp to /u02/TEMP/appcrp?

        • 17. Re: adop phase=prepare  failed
          Narsi M-Oracle

          I mean to the point where you've cloned the environment from source.

          When you cloned your environment from source, where was your apps tier, /u01 or /u02.

          Why do you have 2 mount points for apps tier.

          As per my understanding, this is leading to all the confusion.

           

           

          Regards,

          Narsi

            Hi..

             

            If you are still stuck at FND_OAM_CONTEXT_FILES issue, simply run exec fnd_conc_clone.setup_clean.

             

            Run Autoconfig on: DB Tier, Application Tier - Run then Patch (Total 3 Times).

             

            This will upload all necessary context files info in database. I have done this just yesterday to come over the issue.

             

            There are few more fixes to handle any further issues of fnd_conc_clone.setup_clean. So don't worry to post here. I will guide you through.

              Hello Jenna,

               

              Running fnd_conc_clone.setup_clean is no longer supported by Oracle in 12.2

              It is only applicable for versions until 12.1

              It may resolve the issue but if you land in trouble, you will have to revert from your backup.

                Looks like Narsi has a point. Whats the status of the issue now?

                 

                Are you still looking for help on this issue?

                  Thanks ALL,

                   

                  The cause of the issue is that, when I restored the backup of apps tier to /u02 because it has large free disk space. The original location was in /u01/appcrp, which ran out of space.

                  So what I did is rename /u01/appcrp  to /u01/appcrp_bak, then create a softlink to the restored file as /u01/appcrp  <== /u02/appcrp.

                  It was working good, until a new patch is being applied.

                   

                  What made complicate things more is that, this is a cloned instance from a source that has  pending "hotpaches" I applied which where not cleaned-up or fs_cloned to the patch edition instance.

                  When time to apply a new patch via prepare option, it is searching  back history from the previous pending patches process at the source instance.

                   

                  What I did now is restore the original backup to the original location. and rerun recloning process.

                   

                   

                  Kind regards,

                    My question is (how to avoid hanging patch complications?) before you clone an instance?

                     

                    What  adop should I run  to make an instance clean for cloning? Is it adop phase=cleanup? Can I run this command over and over to cleanup pending, hanging. failed patches?

                     

                     

                    Kind regards,

                      1) There isn't any way to check if patch application will hang. Patch can hang for 'n' number of reasons.

                       

                      2) You can run an empty patching cycle if in doubt (adop phase=prepare,finalize,cutover,cleanup)

                       

                      3) With AD/TXK Delta 7, you have option like adop -validate

                      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)

                      Check "4.3 New adop 'validate' Option"

                        Thanks Narsi and ALL,


                        ***2) You can run an empty patching cycle if in doubt (adop phase=prepare,finalize,cutover,cleanup)


                        Wow!!! I did not know I can run a dummy patching session??? This is a good news for me! and to everyone!!!


                        ***3) With AD/TXK Delta 7, you have option like adop -validate


                        But the problem is, it is very complicated to apply I got "nose-bleed" and "brain-bleed" reading it.

                        Why can not Oracle make it simplier?

                        That is why I am waiting for the VM appliance R12.2.5  which is now long due. So i can just clone it. This version has 12c database and  AD/TXK Delta 7,  right?


                        Kind regards,

                          The only problem with empty patching cycle is that it involves cutover, so there will be a little downtime during cutover phase of empty patching cycle.

                           

                          Regards,

                            No problemo! I can do it after office hours. We only have 9am-6pm working hours

                              Hi Narsi and ALL,

                               

                               

                              Just to confirm, the syntax to run and empty patch is:

                               

                              adop phase=prepare,finalize,cutover,cleanup


                              Is this correct? so apply phase is not included even as dummy?


                              Thanks

                                Thats absolutely right.

                                 

                                adop phase=prepare,finalize,cutover,cleanup

                                 

                                Apply need not be specified.
