On the standalone components, OTD 12.2.1.1.0 installed into /oracle/product/Middleware/ and the domain is /oracle/product/Middleware/user_projects/domains/OTDDomain.

On the AdminServer packed the upgraded 12.2.1.2.0 domain (e.g. ./pack.sh -domain=/oracle/product/Middleware/user_projects/domains/OTDDomain -template=/tmp/OTDDomain.jar -template_name=otd -managed=true) and copied /tmp/OTDDomain.jar to the standalone components.

On the standalone components, installed OTD 12.2.1.2.0 into a new home /oracle/product/wls/12212/ and was able to unpack the upgraded domain. Then deleted the old home and started the Node Manager from the upgraded domain.

Then tried to start the OTD instances from the AdminServer EM and got this error.

Changes

 This issue is observed with-out any changes on OTD stand alone install.
