I have 2 node application server R12.2.5 ( txk 10 / AD 10)
I have applied some patches in downtime mode. Now I want to clone the instance to Test(2 node).
Its better to run fs_clone if you had applied patches in downtime mode.
1 - Do I need to start admin server in patch file system?
2 - Do I need to run preclone on both run and file system in admin node ?
3 - Is it ok to run preclone in run file system alone?
1- No need
2- Only on run file system
3- Only on run file system you should run preclone.
Make sure your adop session is complete. Run preclone on both the apps tier and the database tier.
adop -status -details - check it is good to go.
