The following document requests system administrators run AutoConfig after the database upgrade:

Interoperability Notes EBS 12.0 and 12.1 with Database 11gR2 (Doc ID 1058763.1)

23. Implement and run AutoConfig

Implement and run AutoConfig in the new Oracle home on the database server node. If the database listener of the new Oracle home is defined differently than the old Oracle home, you must also run AutoConfig on each application tier server node to update the system with the new listener.

See Using AutoConfig to Manage System Configurations with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 on My Oracle Support for instructions on how to implement and run AutoConfig. Section 3.2 explains how to generate a context file on the database tier.

Shut down all processes, including the database and the listener, and restart them to load the new environment settings.

However when referring to the below note, the related directory <RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME>/appsutil/scripts does not exist:

2.2. Run AutoConfig on the Database Tier

Execute the following command to run AutoConfig on the database tier.

On Unix:
sh <RDBMS_ORACLE_HOME>/appsutil/scripts/<CONTEXT_NAME>/
