E-Business Suite 12.2 Applications Manager, Rapid Clone related issues




After setting the forms_tmpdir from /tmp (default value) to an fs1/fs2 dependent value (e.g. $INST_TOP/appltmp) via OAM, after fs_clone or adop prepare which calls fs_clone, the newly created PATCH context file has the forms_tmpdir value synced from the RUN FS, which causes a cross reference error:

ValidateFSConfigFilesForCrossRef ...
ERROR: File - <install directory>/apps/fs1/inst/apps/<SID>_<host>/appl/admin/<SID>_<host>.xml contains cross reference in it.
Corrective Action: Contact Oracle Support to identify the best course of action.

ValidateOHSConfigFilesForCrossRef ...
[ERROR]: There are some cross references between the RUN and PATCH file system in FS config files.


The issue is similar to the case reported in the following document:

12.2 - Patching ADOP Cutover Phase Fails with Error "ERROR: File - <installdirectory>/apps/fs1/inst/apps/<SID>_<host>/appl/admin/<SID>_<host>.xml contains cross reference in it" (Doc ID 2099179.1)

The issue could be reproduced by the following steps



Edit the forms_tmpdir from /tmp (default value) to a special value which is an fs1/fs2 dependent value, e.g. $INST_TOP/appltmp.
