E-Business Suite 12.2 Applications DBA, Online Patching ADOP Utilities issues





When running an Online Patching ADOP command (for example adop phase=prepare or adop phase=fs_clone) after installing 12.2.6, the process hangs and does not progress past the validation phase.

No errors are reported on the screen or in the logs.

Checking the status of the process at the OS level the following will be displayed where the process is hung:

$ps -ef | grep adop

appl  ppp/0 00:00:00 /bin/sh
/u01/DEV/fs_ne/EBSapps/appl/ad/bin/adop phase=fs_clone force=yes
appl  ppp/0 00:00:00 perl
-patchctxfile=/u01/DEV/fs2/inst/apps/DEV_erp/appl/admin/DEV_erp.xml -phase=fs_clone
-logloc=/u01/DEV/fs_ne/EBSapps/log/adop/fs_clone/validate/erp -promptmsg=hide


In some cases the above may show the system hanging on validateETCHosts command, related to the following command:

'java -classpath -mx256m oracle.apps.ad.util.ADOPValidations validateETCHosts...'

In this case killing the process id running command "oracle.apps.ad.util.ADOPValidations validateETCHosts" may allow adop to continue.
